The presence of APLITOP programs is very important in these works, where our tunnel applications TcpScancyr and TcpTunnel are being used intensively, and also we have provided multiple MDT licenses for all kinds of surveying tasks.
A few days ago we have visited these works accompanied by our distributor Zan Moden, in order to get first-hand knowledge about the needs of these important customers, making easier the evolution of our applications.
