Like you in your business, to survive and thrive we need to be profitable, so although you will find resources that you can ‘freely’ make use of, others may require us to help scope, design and deliver. These will have a fee for service associated with them.

Some of the tools we develop have scope to be used in a variety of business environments, they are available to registered clients on an ‘as is’ basis. They may have been developed as part of the background work that enabled us to provide a final solution but do not form part of the actual solution.

Where practical you may be able to download these tools to modify for your use. Because they have been created as secondary development tools for our research they are supplied ‘as is’ and are not supported by us, unless other wise arranged.
