Paul started his working life as an Operational Research analyst for a British health authority, providing analysis to effect efficiency improvements. This was followed by a few years as a Research Fellow in a commercial biofuels research project at the University of Aberdeen where he was involved in the development of statistical harvesting productivity models and application development. Paul emigrated to South Africa in 1994 to work with Sappi Forest Products, initially in growth and yield modelling, and subsequently in logistics optimisation projects in both the forestry and paper divisions. In the last few years he has put his project management and analysis skills to use in a wide variety of software development projects in the public and private sector.

Quartex technologies are committed to providing excellent solutions through the innovative use of technology. We offer services related to the integration of Geographical Information into business using GIS technologies, Mobile/Cellular Value Added Services and the development of business applications. Our focus is on utilising an organisation's spatial data to provide management tools to all levels of the organisation from executive management to operations. We do this through consulting, analysis, application development and software implementation. With every project, our objective is to solve problems, not add to them. Most of our software does not carry a license fee and where possible, we build on well established Open Source components. We are not fanatical about this, but choose the open source route to ensure lower cost of ownership. By utilising open source software, money that would have normally been spent on software can now be better focused on implementation and support.Close
