Jason Launchbury- Sales and Business Development Lead

“Coming from working with Re-Employ I immediately saw the benefits of working with the Connective touch products helping and supporting people with disabilities and those who are vulnerable. With the Assemblers project under Devi’s Trust I could see how it will not be just work but being part a bigger vision to give back and make a difference.”

Jody Jones – Administrator and Finance

“Although I take care of the finance controls and administration for the business, I realised how the development of the products can help me and my son at home. My 11 year old struggles with organisational skills and memory, but he wants independence and keeps asking for a key to the front door. With the Flexi Gold biometric system I do believe this is the answer as it will take away all the anxieties around losing his key and gaining access”
