Gate Safety Certs APP well-done.

A well-designed AESIF app put together by installers, and professional software developers at Pendigo Systems, to fit the real needs of a busy installation lifestyle. It complements and enhances the performance of the company with the client on-site.

The remit for the APP was to work on all devices android and apple, tablets, and phones, the request to work at all site locations, without the need for data, and Wi-Fi connections at the time of use, but with a personal cloud backup, installer and client signatures, photo back up, and pdf compliant certification email for the client.

Sliding, lift, tilt and turn automatic turnstiles, both domestic and commercial in use.

Automated garage doors, both domestic and commercial in use

Automated sliding swinging gates, both domestic and commercial in use 

The end of needless paperwork going GREEN, carbon-free.

At the end of a busy day, all you want to do is sit in your van, have a cup of tea, chill out, do the certs, and go home in the knowledge that you have done your bit for another day, and a great job finished.

    The recession of 2008 took its toll on all business and for AESIF a shrinking membership, the difficult decision was taken to close in 2012, with no light at the end of the tunnel for membership. The economy had shrunk by more than 6% between the first quarter of 2008 and the second quarter of 2009, the UK economy took five years to get back to the size it was before the recession. The United Kingdom went through a triple recession in the north that lingered on longer than world war two, from the Midland north to Scotland till 2016. It all started with the world banking crisis in late 2007 with the bank "Northern Rock".  

    Bank nationalisation: The UK government took steps to stabilise the banking system by nationalising several major banks, including Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Lloyds Banking Group, in order to ensure that they had sufficient capital to continue lending to businesses and households. 

    The first use of "levelling up" as an official Conservative Party policy was in the party's manifesto for the 2019 general election, But along came Covid 19 pandemic which stated that a Johnson government  levelling up backed by over £48 billion of government funding and billions more from businesses, large and small. The rest as they say is history.

     “Ok forgive me the United Kingdom left the European Union” honestly you couldn’t make this up?

    To be or not to be - 09 November 2012 (This is an editorial from the time very sad reading)

    That is the question? Ten years or so ago the electric gate industry was a different place, with good business turnover and reasonable profit, including an abundance of work for installers “but ’o so long ago”.

    Passion and Sensibility

    There is a big difference between the passion you may have for a successful business, one that has been built up over the years, and is continuing to be viable, profitable, and provide equity for the future. It's true that some areas of the UK have seen good business for both groups, resellers and retailers, that's a fact. On the other hand some companies are really struggling, and its a big problem for them with the lack of business.

    Ok if you are one of those business the later part of that paragraph, and you are putting your savings back into the company to keep it afloat? Then you must stop now, consider your options, what is available to you to change your position and profitability.

    If you cannot sell your products and services in the open market place, when price dictates the sale, or for whatever reason, then it is time to move on, don't get into debt trying to keep a business a float, know when to cut your losses.
