In less than a fortnight, BOSS will shine a spotlight on some of the major technology specialist providers at the Technology Showcase. The event will run between 11:30am and 3:30pm on Thursday 29 November at the Tower Guoman Hotel in London, and is free to those attending the BOSS Awards later that day (£25 otherwise). Here are some of the exhibitors and what BOSS has to say about them:

The company was started as a separate business for the provision of better quality data, when the senior management at Evolution Software realised that it was important to enhance their own software through the availability of that data.
Visit Heart to see its Pulse Office back-office and Pulse Store e-commerce options. This is software that is designed for use by small to medium sized dealers, and is in use by over 200 of them currently. Linking to Sage 50 for accounting functionality, Pulse systems are simple, affordable and adaptable.
A cloud-based e-commerce system that allows direct communication to end users on the features, benefits and promotions that manufacturers believe are the key messages.
