Customer Testimonial: Royal Agricultural University
Geoff Kendall Smith | Director of Digital Innovation | Royal Agricultural University
"Through the tender process, Overt provided an excellent value-for-money offering backed with a set of customer-focused behaviors that made Overt a compelling provider. Our tender process was rigorous and demonstrated that the Overt service was right for the RAU."
Overt has provided a fuss-free service that gives us confidence that our VLE services are well run and can provide a high level of service to our home and international partners. Overt has a ‘get-it-done’ attitude so that, when we raise a ticket, it gets triaged and then delivered – efficient and effective. All as part of the service.
We have not had any unexpected costs so managing the contract within the budget has been very easy. Overt staff are friendly and effective: they sort out our issues. As the service director, I am confident that we are working with a partner that is invested in our success."
