At Southdown House Software, we're committed to the very highest level of service to our customers.
Because we are not purely a distributor (or 'box-shifter'), but also software developers, we understand the needs of the development community. We also deploy Zen & PSQL-based systems into many different environments, and this gives us a full understanding of the runtime and end-user requirements.
This 'real world' understanding of the products enables us to offer unrivalled pre and post-sales technical support for the products we sell. Due to our long involvement with the products - and because we take an active role in the Beta phase of new Zen & PSQL products and releases - we're able to offer knowledgeable information on past, present and even future versions!
It is this commitment and understanding of the products that has made Southdown House Software the U.K's #1 distributor for Actian Zen/PSQL.
Southdown House Software Limited was founded in 1993 by Jon Grieve and Vivienne Gurney - both long-term users of Btrieve (since 1984). At this point, the main focus of the company was to produce vertical market accounting software for the Lloyd's of London insurance market.
In 1994 Southdown House Software introduced their extensive knowledge of Btrieve Technologies products into the U.K. marketplace. After a successful advertising and marketing campaign, offering our highly skilled consultancy, support and training services, we became distributors for Smithware and PSQL in 1995.
Since that time, Southdown House Software has consistently grown the U.K. market for Btrieve/PSQL/Zen and commands a high percentage of the U.K. sales of these products.
