Prototype software development for a queue management system.

We have recently used Impact Technology to develop a bespoke software programme from scratch and found them to be incredibly accommodating and they had a real grasp of what we were attempting to achieve. From enquiry right through to post-completion we found Impact Technology were always willing to assist and clearly valued customer satisfaction and the end-product was exactly what we were looking to achieve.  I would highly recommend their services accordingly.
