We are no stranger to the ice industry!
Not long after we first started developing our first software for the Epson EHT-30 touch screen computer for the bottled water industry, we started to add features for customers selling packaged ice. This handheld device proved to be a game changer for packaged ice companies around the world. Its simple - yet powerful - interface has been the gold standard of all handheld software in the industry. Not to stand by and watch the industry change, we have been at the forefront of technology and lead the industry in many innovations.
From humble beginnings in this industry, we now have over 100 customers in eight countries that range from simple two truck operations to national suppliers. We are the preferred choice of ice companies in the USA, Canada, Australia, Guam, and other locations. Scalability is achieved through our powerful desktop software that supports up to 100 users and literally hundreds of handhelds. We are known in the IPIA for being a trusted, long term supplier of quality products.
