We are delighted to announce the formation of sofco Limited, following the Aptos’ acquisition in October’17 of the TXT Retail business that included the TXT Perform solutions, making TXT Retail an Aptos Company. The team at sofco were a core part of the TXT Perform team and, led by Keith Noble and Nicola Noble, sofco will continue the development of applications specifically for the consumer goods and manufacturing industries. In addition, sofco has been appointed as an Aptos Distribution Partner and will manage and support the growing customer base for the TXT Perform Business Unit.
sofco will be the exclusive business partner for the non-retail market and will continue to focus on planning and supply chain processes to become the recognised global software vendor for consumer goods and manufacturing companies.
The sofco team is comprised of industry-experienced applications and technical consultants, solutions architects and account managers, who were an integral part of the TXT Perform team. Collectively, they will continue to bring deep domain knowledge of the supply chain market where they have worked for many years. The team are looking forward to working with the customer base and developing new and exciting opportunities to shape and influence product roadmaps and overall strategies.
sofco are excited about the journey that lies ahead and look forward to continuing the service to their customers, as they have done for the last 14 years.
