“Increasingly, there is a demand by clients for uniform workforce management solutions that span the global reach of their operations. The tie up with APBA is a very important and strategic piece of the jigsaw puzzle for us in terms of our ability to service such clients across an extensive, international reach that spans three continents.”'
