Mark has specialized in EDI and its related technologies since the early 1990s, designing and developing numerous EDI systems running on various platforms.
The systems he produced have been, and continue to be, used by many well known blue-chip companies throughout the world.
His latest product, ZEDI, takes EDI to the next level in terms of functionality and performance.
Mark has always believed that good software can only be produced by keeping in close contact with the people who actually use it, “they are absolutely the best source of ideas for product enhancements and new functionality” he’s often heard to say.
This close contact also allowed Mark to earn a reputation for outstanding customer service from the customers who use his software. He’s always believed that a customer with a serious technical issue trumps everything, and will sideline all other activities until an issue has been fully resolved.
Mark ensured that this attitude became a key part of ZirconBlue’s ethos. Any software product, regardless of how technically sophisticated it is, demands excellent technical support in order to remain useful. Mark sees it as his personal mission to guarantee that this happens.
Mark has extensive practical experience of a wide variety of technologies, most recently ASP.NET, SQL, XSLT and XML as well as much older technologies like RPG/400 and DDS. He’s also designed and developed software that implement modern communications protocols including AS2, OFTP2, Web Services and RESTful APIs, so he has a strong understanding of how they work.
Over the years, Mark has implemented interfaces involving a wide variety of business systems on behalf of his clients. These include systems like SAP, CargoWise, Amazon MWS, Maginus and Sage.
