<p>Hummingbird’s Managing Director Tony Hughes said, “Our government offerings will provide enormous value to WA agencies. Significant recent wins in WA Government, and being the only leader in the Gartner ECM Magic Quadrant selected as a preferred tenderer on the CUA, prove that we have a clear point of differentiation over smaller vendors in meeting government compliance requirements."</p>
