Anthony Franklin, founder and managing director of fibodo, commented: “As the world’s major economies have matured, they have become dominated by service focused businesses.”

“However, many of the management tools and techniques used by these service providers were initially designed for retail companies, and therefore do not meet the needs of service businesses.”

“fibodo has been designed specifically with service industries in mind, addressing this previous gap in the market.”
