Take a trip down memory lane

Written by Alan Ingram on Friday, 01 August 2014. Posted in Company news

It’s hard to believe that 10 years have passed since ePC launched following the acquisition of Cardiff Software by Verity. Here, we take a nostalgic trip down memory lane - and look ahead to the next ten years.

2004

Working from a single office in Bracknell with a team of just four people, in those early days, ePC provided technical support and maintenance for TeleForm, the Opentext owned data capture product.

Among our first clients was Chevron Texaco who required an alternative to manually inputting low level fault and housekeeping data generated from site inspection cards. The team had to complete an ‘Air Pocket Dry Trainer User’ course before being helicoptered between four oil platforms in the North Sea to install the system, which scanned, stored, analysed and translated incident data into action plans.
