Unlocking the value in heritage systems

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the go-live of one our systems, CIMPAC, with our long standing customer McAlpine & Co. Ltd. Together PDMS and McAlpine have embarked on a new project to enhance CIMPAC with a new browser-based system that provides a single source of accurate data for their business. It uses the existing CIMPAC database but has a much improved user interface with clearer navigation, and will provide a more intuitive user experience.
