After 27 years in IT and electronic engineering, our MD, Alden Möller decided to have a change of pace.
He purchased a chain of fashion boutiques called Icing, which used ineffective financial andpoint-of-sale software written over 25 years ago (surprisingly this software is still being soldin the South African market today).
After an unsuccessful search for suitable ERP/POS software, Alden found himself having to writehis own software to ensure accurate up-to-the-minute reporting for all his boutiques. Apoint-of-sale was the first product, which then developed into a full ERP product.
During this time, other traders heard of Alien. Interest was high and many asked if they couldtry it. Alien was given free to whoever wanted it. The word spread quickly and so Alien became abusiness before Alden realised it.
Today, almost 9 years later, Alien has become a fully-fledged product serving a host of industries and helping many businesses stay ahead of their competitors.
