The Bite Size team were impactful, supportive and brilliant to work alongside. They supported our deployment on MS SharePoint and Teams across our European offices. As the Covid19 pandemic crisis came, Bite Size pivoted quickly and effectively to training virtually. Our staff were reluctant at first but with the expertise of the Bite Size team, we have adapted with ease and are using SharePoint and Teams with success throughout our business. The learning platform provides staff with an opportunity to learn at their own pace and on relevant topics. We look forward to working with Bite Size in the future
