Client assistance and support

Having been involved with logistics and warehouse technology since 1993 we have developed a wealth of experience of both the theoretical and practical elements of supply chain planning and supply chain execution.

Our business experience is supported by extensive systems design and implementation expertise gained over an even longer period - before the dawn of the PC!  Unlike many other solutions companies we understand not only the tip of the computing iceberg but also what lies under the water.

Our unique selling point (USP) is our ability to relate the business to the system (and vice versa) and talk knowledgeably and from first hand experience of both, thereby eliminating the barriers that so often exist between these two areas.
