Comments From Some of Our Latest Users
"Just a short note to say that I have been up and running for a few days and I am really pleased with GIS247. The whole system works very well. Jumped straight into the intermediate training and very good as you forget that you get lazy and tend to work the same way, the training has reminded me of some of the tricks. Looking forward to working through all the training modules."
“The ultimate endorsement of the quality and usefulness of the GIS247 training has been to renew our licence. It is now viewed as such a strategic investment that we have moved to a central approach to fund our licence.”
