Supporting School Covid Testing

While our Product Development Team continually look for new and innovative ways to facilitate supply chain processes on mobile devices, one member, as a personal challenge, has been busy creating a handy tool to help with the facilitating of Covid Lateral Flow testing in schools.

SAP Healthcheck

SAP Healthchecks in Demand

With many companies using the current situation as a period of review, we have seen a rise in the number of customers taking advantage of our SAP Healthcheck services over the last six months.

Spreading Christmas Cheer

At the end of a difficult year for everyone, two of our colleagues have donned their Santa hats to spread some Christmas cheer throughout our local communities.

Corporate Account Manager, Laura Cole, collected donations of more than £250, which she used to buy a massive haul of items for a local Foodbank. From staple food pantry items they are in desperate need of, to some Christmas treats, Laura has helped contribute to such a worthwhile charity doing so much to help those in need this Christmas.
