Commenting on working with Benchmark International, Richard Burt, former Technical Director at FastSMS, said: “I would like to thank Benchmark International for their constant support during the sale of our business. They took a lot of pressure off during the transaction and their professionalism, their depth of team and their obvious knowledge in our sector bred confidence in us moving forward with the project. Without Benchmark International, I don’t believe we would have achieved the right result.”
