Let me start this, the last edition of the year, by thanking all of our customers for your support throughout 2011.
A special thank you goes out to all of you who made it to the recent UK User Group earlier this month.

There was also a lot of positive feedback about the customer experience slot, delivered by Jean Ashby of RS Components.
