Further more they give us the opportunity to embrace new technologies as they become available that fall outside the realm of typical building services. Cameron now manages the NDY Digital team globally and is very focused on ensuring that team are looking for all SMART opportunities and not just continuing to do what they have traditionally done in the past.
