Growth plans for software house as new MD appointed

North West based software house Logma Systems Design Ltd has appointed a new managing director, Debbie Pettitt, to lead the company in its ambitious growth plans.

Debbie was previously CEO at law firm Marsden Rawsthorn and has over 25 years experience in the software market having previously worked for Sage and Datel.

Debbie said: "I have been working with the team at Logma for over 12 months in a non-executive role and I am delighted to be joining them at this exciting phase in the company's history, which will see us building a National Reseller Channel to increase market share of OneFit, and in turn, the creation of 10 new North West based roles in the next twelve months."

Logma is best known for its OneFit range of software which encourages companies to expect more and no longer accept poorly designed systems which do not integrate as they should.

Debbie said: "I was impressed by the uniqueness of the software which has key design criteria resulting in a complete end to end ERP solution which can be installed on a modular basis allowing a business to grow its software solution in line with its business.

"My experience in general business operations and specifically in the software industry, enabled me to identify OneFit's strengths such as the removal of 'bolt-on' third party software, the high standard of design and the use of latest technologies.

"The opportunity to join a company with such a progressive and exciting product was not one I wanted to miss. The Reseller Channel sales will provide the volume sales across industries, particularly where traceability and focussed increased efficiencies are the order of the day."

OneFit includes modules for CRM and CCF for complaints tracking, WebPortal, SOP, POP (with options for MRP), General Accounting, Warehouse and Distribution, even including Route Transport Management and Proof of Delivery with GPS.

The software also provides solid features such as traceability (with or without bar-coding), digital one-time data capture, powerful and efficient multi-level price management and warning systems as well as focussed operational benefits where users and managers are presented with relevant information from the shared cross-company database. The software also has its own financials or can integrate with Sage 50 or 200. Audrey Odell, chief executive of Logma, added: “We are proud and delighted to welcome Debbie to the Logma family. We have enjoyed success to date with the OneFit solution but now is the right time to increase awareness of this unique software."
