Forward Computers makes biggest-ever investment

[ June 11, 2021   //   ]

Freight IT specialist Forward Computers has made its largest ever single investment on a new software release.

The company is redeveloping and reengineering its product portfolio by investing in the latest technology with a major focus on enhancing user experience, developing an additional user interface which will be rolled out in early 2022. Customers will be able to choose it for all or part of their user base.

Managing director Richard Litchfield, who joined the team in January, comments: “We have invested time listening to our customers which is shaping this new front-end evolution. This is the first of many developments we’re making to ensure our customers have best-in- class technology, to help them improve efficiencies and deliver the best solutions to meet their needs.”

“It has been my ambition since I started to ensure we are utilising the latest technologies to support our customers. We already have a strong and functional freight management software offering. With recent additions and this new UI offering, we have a solution like no other in the UK.”

He added: “This enhanced software will hugely improve functionality, be feature rich and have an enhanced user experience.  We have a unique appreciation of the many challenges operators face every day and are using this understanding to bring a different perspective to the market.”
