Meyer Agencies Ltd. have been in the ship agency business for over 130 years. We decided to look for a ship scheduler program to assist in pre-planning and berth allotments for shipping in Bermuda. We approached Ideal Business Services Ltd. with our plans. Their knowledge and expertise in ship software solutions was of great value. Ideal Business Services listened to our needs and tailored a program as per our specifications.
Meyer Agencies Ltd. with this new "Ships Scheduler" program will be the leader in Bermuda when it comes to arranging and scheduling vessel calls, thanks to Ideal Business Services Ltd.
Meyer Agencies have future plans to expand our "Ships Scheduler" to entail all local marine operations and with Ideal Business Services Ltd. assistance we know this will be a great success.

I am writing in connection with the UNITRACK-D depot management software. I believe we are entering our 10th year with this software now.
In that time it has given us the ability to control the containers of various third parties and to provide them with timely and accurate information. This has helped us to increase our business in a controlled and profitable way through system upgrades and other features added when necessary. I believe we have a bespoke system which forms a sound basis for our business to continue to grow and perform efficiently in the coming years.

We are working with you now 3 years since you established the software solution on our server. We are fully satisfied with your work and service. Despite the comparatively long distance between our companies you have always been able to do necessary service works through the Internet or on phone quickly and to our satisfaction.
F. HOLM CHEMIE HANDELS GmbH, Germany

September 2011 marked 3 years since the implementation of the Airport Statistics Management Information System (ASMIS) at our airports in Dominica. We have also implemented the Flight Information Display System (FIDS) which has been in operation for almost two years now. Both systems are working very well. There has been very little downtime as a result of an ASMIS or FIDS malfunction. The statistics management reports have been very helpful in getting data quickly when required internally and/or externally.
Whenever we come across any customizations required for our operations or reporting Mr Paul Parkinson and Ideal are always quick, willing and able to assist and fulfil the request at the quickest possible time, for which we are very thankful.
We at the Dominica Air & Sea Ports Authority are satisfied with the systems' operation and look forward to further enhancements/customizations as our needs grow.

WIGAN LINK

Just a quick note to thank you for your recent help in upgrading our existing network and installing a new wireless network. We had been trying to integrate a wireless network into the company for some time, however we had been told by our existing support company that we would not be able to do so as our Broadband connection and modem would not be compatible.
We were then recommended by a client to talk to Ideal and within a few days the wireless network was up and running. We were very impressed by the level of knowledge and your professional service and we have been even more impressed by the after sales care.

IRS entrusted our website project to Ideal after carefully listening to their ideas, researching their impressive portfolio and viewing a selection of completed works by the team. We have enjoyed working with the Ideal team enormously. We discovered that their endless patience and ability to grasp what IRS actually needed but perhaps did not know how to achieve refreshing and inspirational.
This has since been reflected by positive commercial growth from within geographical territories and commercial activities that otherwise might not have been envisaged. We view the Ideal team as a first-choice partner with which to work.

The personal service offered was first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ideal to anyone looking for IT services.
