Decision Technology was set up as a partnership in November 1981 by Jenny Phillips and Mike Russell. The business is still exclusively owned by the founders.
With the advent of the IBM PC opportunities arose in virtually every industry and one of our first projects was to write a scheduling system for a gamma ray sterilisation plant in the pharmaceutical sector.
After that we launched into barcoding and labelling systems and wrote the forerunner of our ICON Label System which is now used worldwide.
This was quickly followed by a huge system in the automotive industry which resulted in some of todays developments in diesel powered vehicles.
Most of our projects have been technical and have involved barcoding. A notable exception is a skills resource system which was used to plan shift staffing.
This was used by a company that turns recycled waste paper into gigantic toilet rolls which are then cut down into a more manageable size.
As technology has evolved so have we. Todays systems are likely to use Data Matrix 2d barcodes, programmable printers and machine vision sensors.
We have used machine vision to check the rear inserts in music CDs and to read barcodes on cans of radio active waste through extremely thick laminated glass windows.
As an adjunct to our systems business we decided to set up a web based activity to sell the type of barcoding equipment that we have used so extensively.
Today the web accounts for a large part of our business but if you want to tempt us with a really difficult and interesting project we may be pleased to talk to you.
We are based in a large Victorian house located just west of London near Hampton Court.
London Heathrow is the nearest airport and we have a twice hourly rail connection between Hampton Court station and London Waterloo.
