We have concentrated on creating a design that is intuitive and user friendly so that customers can access all the features and functions they need at the touch of a button, allowing them to work faster and better. To have our efforts recognized by such a prestigious organization as the Australian International Design Awards is very rewarding and a fantastic endorsement for a product that we already know is a world-beater."
