Outlook and opportunities
Data and information management is growing in importance as the world becomes increasingly digitally connected. As the value of transforming raw data into usable information is recognised and becomes widespread, the wealth of data that Metrofile stores or digitises is increasingly a sought-after resource. Metrofile remains well placed in the forefront of an industry that is evolving rather than shrinking. Metrofile anticipates a stronger second half earnings.
