If your company needs custom software, custom tools for a variety of purposes, convertors, even combined hardware solutions, it can be considered to use my expertise based on consultancy terms. Depending on the complexity and the amount of work, it can be discussed to execute the job either at your company location or remote.
Your can count on a personal and proffesional approach. We only leave when you are satisfied.

Special expertise has been developed in the world of refinery off-sites management solutions. Off-sites software brings refineries live charge and yield data together into one centralized system. These products are typically used at several departments, from scheduling and operations to accounting and management. Projects has been executed worldwide including training and support.
