why we are here

We are here to do our work - the work that we are best at, and to pass the fruits of that work onto to you, at a reasonable price, so that you are able to do whatever you are best at.

how and why our business works

  • We distribute our products via the Internet - This ensures that we can keep our prices realistic and give you great value for money. It also enables us to reach you, where you are, without you having to come to us, or having to pay freight and handling costs. Another advantage is that we can keep you up to date with the latest product releases, get your feedback quickly and ensure that we shape our product the way you want it shaped.

  • We interpret your custom as an investment - We are grateful for your custom, and respect the support that you give us when you purchase a product from us. We always encourage and seek feedback, and will go out of our way to ensure that you are delighted with your purchase.

  • We have a strong commitment to research and we are continually investigating ways of doing things better. We believe if we can build our products more cleverly that we will be able to pass the benefit on to you - our customers.

  • We do everything we can to keep our costs to a minimum. The reason is simple - we prefer investing in research and development. It makes us happy because that's what we do best. We are then in a position to pass on to you, the fruits of our work, at the lowest possible cost, not inflated by overheads.

where are we going?

The company has a lot of work to do. Our plans are focused on creating more products based on research into the areas of modeling complex systems, with a particular emphasis on the use of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The company's destiny and shape will be determined by this direction. Simply we will change in what ever way we need to continue to do our work and deliver high quality products that delight our customers.

where have we come from?

We have worked in what is popularly known as the Information Technology industry. Our experience has been myriad and in a variety of roles from business analyst to senior architect, and technical director. We have taken part in a number of large and small projects in a diverse range of domains and organisations. Our employees have been using the UML since 1996 when it was still in the early stages of Beta release.

what does our name mean?

In the words of Alice in Wonderland 'Must a name mean something?'. We decided that it didn't need to. So we based our name on the sound of the name rather than the meaning of the word. We perceived a limitation and restriction by calling ourselves by a name that had a specific meaning. In any case, words change their meaning over time. In the words of the round egg "With a name like that you might be any shape."
