As the world of work evolves so must the services that support organisations and enables them to concentrate on core activities. For many SME’s (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises) in the UK the management of their facilities, often wastes time, money and resources. Traditional service delivery does not always meet the demands of the client and as a result we must go back to the drawing board and do something different and new.

The country had been reasonably calm for some time, but on April 4, 2004, a prominent supporter of the maverick Shia cleric Moqtadar al Sadr was arrested. Violence exploded on the streets of southern Iraq to a level not seen since the invasion 12 months previously. Well-armed insurgents repeatedly attacked Coalition Forces with rocket launchers, anti-tank weapons, grenades and machine guns.
