Next week we commence in-house testing of our new repairs management software. This is used by our jeweller and bike retailer customers. After months of customer consultation followed by a major development project, we are a few days away from completing programming. This completely new software will be in testing for some weeks as it is put through its paces against strict operational and performance criteria.

The repairs software is something like the space shuttle to NASA in that this development for a specific purpose has resulted in skills and facilities useful in other parts of our software, even for markets which have nothing to do with repairs.

The continued enhancement of our software is crucial to our existing customers and important in attracting new customers. Anyone who saw our software more than a year ago does not know what it can do today given the work completed by our six full-time skilled Delphi software developers.
