50,000 support calls logged! 16 years of service to the asbestos industry

We started logging calls to our software helpdesk - from users of our asbestos systems Tracker and now Alpha Tracker - way back in October 2003.  That's an amazing 16 years of service to the asbestos industry in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and beyond.

Call number 50000 came in on Monday from our client REC. I feel like we should be marking the occasion with a bottle of bubbly or a pint in our favourite local - the George & Dragon in Much Wenlock.

Here's to the next 16 years!!!

We'll post more information as soon as we have completed the Tracker Mobile and Alpha Tracker training for the asbestos specialists at the consultancy.

Lovely thank you to Judy as client contact moves on

One of our key client contacts at a large Australian asbestos consultancy is moving on and just sent this lovely email to our Australian Alpha Tracker director, Judy:

"Once again thank you for being so great to work with all these years. Taking Alpha Tracker from something we didn’t use at all to being such an integral and valuable part of how we do our work is honestly one of the achievements I’m most proud of from my time here, and it wouldn’t have been possible without you."

What a great comment to receive and a testament to the customer support that Judy and her team in Adelaide deliver to our clients in Australian and New Zealand.
