Andrew

Chairman and Founder

Andrew spent many years working in film production before applying his industry knowledge to software development, to improve the way permits are processed. With his wealth of experience managing inflexible film schedules and limited budgets, Andrew knew that efficient software could make all the difference. For this reason, the first product he developed was FilmApp. The benefits to Events became obvious very quickly and Apply4 Technology’s product portfolio has grown accordingly.
