“TREND is especially optimised for large-scale, multi-site networks such as Reed’s,” explained Paul Donovan, international managing director, Trinagy. “We have carried out all of the work in the background to ensure that the user has a simple, ‘drag and drop’, Windows-like experience, no matter how complex their networking environment.”
