Onset Updates
It has been a big couple of months as we close out upgrades and implementations, whilst kicking off new and exciting projects that you'll hear more about in coming weeks and months.

We're pleased to be working with Cristal Mining and visited their Australind office near Bunbury. Their  titanium products are converted into titanium dioxide pigment for use in many applications including paints, plastics and paper. Scoping and design for a new Meridian implementation kicked off with a productive day of workshops.

Christmas Trading Hours
Our office will be closed on December 22nd 2017, reopening on January 2nd 2018.

Here are some shots of the Onset team, well not quite all of us, on a recent two-day workshop in Docklands (Melbourne). Michael took some photos as the storm approached, then it was off to an Escape Room challenge, with two teams working to gather clues and escape within 45 minutes. Not a competition, but the Prohibition team escaped and clearly won on the day.

We would like to wish our clients and their loved ones a very merry Christmas, and a safe and happy New Year.
