Who are we?TC40logo

Our close-knit teams work with our customers to improve their processes by highlighting inefficiencies and automating their machinery. Typically this means using our own software to perform control actions and record data.

Our SCADA package, Prodigy has been 100% developed by our programmers in the UK.  It is used by many world leading organisations in their manufacturing and testing processes, for example, for aerospace products, engine development, and pharmaceutical production.

Our PlantRun systems have been supplied globally to help manufacturers understand their production processes and help improve their performance and productivity.

Our PAMS systems are used for alarm management in air traffic control towers, and we have provided them to both commercial airports and UK MOD airfields.

  • Managing the small programming team who look after our Prodigy, PAMS and PlantRun software platforms
  • Designing software applications and back-end code to fit in with our core programs
  • Providing design documentation and explaining its proposed functionality through presentations and workshops
  • Reviewing design documentation and testing scenarios
  • Providing support to the programming team when an issue has been reported
  • Developing new software applications and back-end code
  • Involvement in the strategic direction of the software development
