The selected EMC VSPEX solution ensures that the Montessori Scholengemeenschap Amsterdam Foundation will have a scalable and flexible platform available that is suitable for the various applications and many thousands of users. We are looking forward to a successful collaboration, says Lucas den Os, Managing Director of Proact Netherlands.”
