“I've found the system really easy to use, with only a few clicks to record my jobs and time. It's a great improvement on our old paper-based system as I can use a barcode scanner and all the information is automatically linked. Being able to look at the latest packaging specs in the same place is a real time saver.”

"Working with HanaTech makes life easy. Great work, great support and always on hand to make the process fast and efficient. The balance was just right, advised when we needed advising but listened when needed to. The team thought the final design ticked all the boxes for our somewhat loose brief! It looked fantastic and will be unique in the market space we are attempting to grow in. We would 100% recommend!"
