Q. If I order a system, what is involved
A. We have found that the easiest way to set a system up is to obtain all your documentation which gives us an understanding of your costing methods and we can then set up the procedures to cover all aspects that you would need. We can generally create the documents in identical formatting.
Q. How long will it take to installation
A. As a general rule it takes six weeks to set up the system depending on how long it takes to approve the documentation and procedures. Standard systems can be supplied in much shorter periods.
