"We are extremely pleased with the adoption of PDX by Egistix, a very well, locally run and forward thinking organization whose bright management team immediately saw great value to offer our shared customer base the capability for our systems to communicate."

Egistix President Colin Fox is very pleased with the results of the project. "Egistix embraced the opportunity to develop a data integration interface that would make for the seamless transfer of data between our marketing software and Petrotranz. We are very excited to be an industry leader with new technologies that will optimize our customer's efficiencies and business processes.
