We are always looking to extend our capability and reach in the digital arena and the acquisition of a specialist digital solutions agency like Orange Bus will enable us to increase our scale and reach to design and deliver ever more innovative projects for our clients. They have been delivering some incredible work for their clients – including Capita – and we look forward to working with them more closely.”
