Changes to our systems

In the coming months, we will be changing our online systems to a cloud based provider - Netsuite. This will make our website and systems more resilient, and improve the capabilities of what they can do for you, and us.

Archived packet data will cease to be accessible - notably access to old invoices will end as we transfer to a digital invoicing system. Please consider downloading copies of invoices that you will need for accounting purposes now.
