Client Testimonial

"New College Lanarkshire promotes the ‘all equal, all individual’ mantra – that anyone regardless of age, nationality, race, disability or gender can attend and flourish at the College, and it is vitally important that we show this on our website. Having the Recite Me app means we can communicate with all who visit the website, whether they have a learning disability, physical disability or language barrier. It has meant that visitors who previously would not have been able to access the website fully can find out about what New College Lanarkshire can offer. With technology advancing, most of our visitors access our website via mobile devices and smartphones, so the cloud-based software allows us to provide college information to all anywhere and anytime "
