Fiona’s industry experience spans the hardware and software worlds and this will be invaluable as we develop the DigiPoS business."

He continued: “Better Capital’s backing represents a significant and positive step, and will enable the business to expand its group activities. We look forward to growing the existing software, hardware and services divisions of the business, and also pursuing a planned international acquisition trail, to provide greater resource and structure across the software and managed services business.”
