About Us

Outline History

Creating Commercial Advantage

The new MIS system revolutionised daily tasks across the entire operation, including: Estimate, Job bag, and Invoice creation, as well as Purchasing, Stock, and Inventory management. With instant access to Sales, Production, and Financial analysis, this streamlined and highly automated business, started to create a real commercial advantage over its competitors who were still operating with manual systems and processes!

Optimus software adopted by others

With the Optimus Classic MIS proving its worth so quickly; and with both profitability and overall company performance improving, its tremendous success started to draw wider industry attention.  This ultimately led to the establishment of a separate company “Optichrome Computer Systems Ltd”, who then started to sell and distribute the Optimus suite of MIS software to a new worldwide customer base.
