‘The CGI system had very good processes and was working well but the feeling was that Navision would take us to the next level.’Dinesh Sanghvi, Finance Director, CGI Group (Europe) Ltd.

Simon Elvin Limited
When Sir Henry Cole, the chief organiser of the Great Exhibition, pioneer of the penny post and founder of the V&A museum invented the commercial Christmas card back in 1846, he unwittingly sparked off the UK greetings card industry that market researchers estimate had rocketed in worth to over £1.44 billion in 2007.
When it comes to sending cards, the UK leads the world, with greetings cards stocked in more types of outlet than any other product – one in six retailers – and seemingly endless opportunities to mark an event with a card, quite literally from the cradle to the grave.
Prime Light Electrical Ltd
Prime Light Electrical Ltd has built a solid business over the last 10 years. Specialising in the sale and distribution of electrical components to the lighting and related industries, the company acts in many cases as sole and exclusive representatives for manufacturers around the world – and now supplies virtually every lighting manufacturer in the UK, as well as distributors and wholesalers.
Prime Light Electrical’s success has been built on its reputation for customer service and its breadth of product range. From the smallest components such as grommets, cable clamps and terminal blocks through lamp holders, plug and socket systems, to transformers, control gear, fluorescent lighting, switches, interior and exterior lighting – Prime Light is the supplier of choice for hundreds of customers.
When it comes to the fast-moving world of Internet technology solutions, few organisations can match Unipalm (Computerlinks UK) for breadth of experience and pedigree. It is fair to say that when Unipalm was founded in 1986, it pioneered the UK commercialisation of IP (Internet Protocol), becoming the first supplier of the essential building blocks on which so many of today’s networked and online business operations rely.
Now, Unipalm is recognised as the UK and Ireland’s foremost specialist distributor of Internet technology solutions – providing a single point of expertise and assistance for channel partners implementing intelligent network environments and integrated, scaleable security systems.
