Partnership Working

Throughout the time that TF and BCC have worked together, the key aspect has been the partnership approach that both parties have adopted. This has delivered enormous savings benefits to both organisations and has helped TF to develop software and services that make a real difference. This is evidenced by the growth of TF which is now the market leading Asset Management Software supplier to the Public Sector with over 150 major clients.

Outcomes
