InnoviseJuly 1990 - September 2005

Within the first two years the Innovise IT department had grown from just myself to two Analyst Programmers and a Junior Programmer and myself in a project management role. I have always been a believer in the hands on approach so I was involved in some of the software development as well as handling projects cycles and specifications for new development. Initially our products were written in a combination of Clipper 5.0 and C++ but it was clear that Windows was the way forward so after researching all current Windows development tools we decided to move forward using Delphi 3.0. Likewise, the Nippondenso had it’s limitations so we began replacing our handhelds with Psion Workabouts which were cheaper and more robust.
By the new millennium my department had grown to seven plus contractors. Working closely with my development team I kept a handle on all current project work and worked hard at keeping Innovise as the leader in Performance Monitoring by keeping abreast of new technology without exceeding our budgets. In doing so, we had upgraded our Delphi development software through Delphi 5.0 to Delphi 7.0, which had additional capability for Web development. Our Psions were also becoming outdated and were replaced by Palm units with touch screen technology and eventually HTC phones with Windows CE.

Martin Retail GroupMay 1988 - August 1990

MRG was one of the forerunners in EPOS development. I initially worked on the Site office systems using Foxpro but eventually became involved in developing central office systems using RPG based on MRG’s AS400 mainframe servers. Due to my knowledge of PC systems as well as AS400\​RPG I became involved in central support of on-site terminals and data transfer from branches. When MRG began looking at Hand held barcode unit software development for use in the branches I was tasked with using the new SDK and linking the units with branch systems.

Note: Information of experience prior to 1988 is available on request.
