Find out what our clients say about the Information Service:

"Our last review of this service showed that those who use Idox regularly either in a corporate capacity or in our major strategic services value it highly, describing it as quick, easy, and comprehensive. It gives staff access to a wide range of information and, through the succinct weekly bulletins, keeps them up-to-date across many areas that are of direct relevance to the City Council.

The research resource too is highly valued and saves staff time in sourcing and retrieving information quickly and easily."

Anne Connolly, Strategic Advisor to the Chief Executive, Glasgow City Council

The Idox information sheets help attendees to better interact with presentations and discussion, equipping them with ready facts and figures and giving them a platform from which to engage."
