Although 2017 will probably be best remembered for Brexit & another general election, for MACS Software it proved to be an extremely busy year and we have been lucky enough to show continued growth.
During 2017 we have continued to work with various Governments and NGOs, providing key systems in the distribution of lifesaving medicines in Africa and the Caribbean. Closer to home, we have welcomed a number of new customers into the MACS fold and we have seen many of our existing customers upgrading to larger warehouses, embracing technology to manage increasing throughput.
The introduction of our own stand-alone voice system, the upgrade of our Linnworks integration to the latest web APIs for e-commerce and highly intricate interfaces with Amazon and Tesco Shopping were key technical milestones during the year.
With everything that has happened recently, we’d like to reflect by acknowledging our last new customer of 2017 and our first customer of 2018:
We would like to take this opportunity once again to thank all of our customers for their ongoing support and we wish them a prosperous and successful 2018. We look forward to continuing our partnerships in 2018 and beyond.
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
