…the customer base represents an addressable market in excess of £750 million in annual recurring revenue and which the Group is well placed to target.During 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic served to further increase the Group’s focus on these growth drivers. In particular, the mass move to home and distributed working has emphasised that many organisations do not have adequate data, insight and management processes to run operations safely and efficiently when the workforce is not co-located in an office. The Directors believe these dynamics will drive further demand for the Group’s products from its existing customer base, and by new customers.”
