WORK HISTORY - 1984 1990
Unibit (Holdings) Limited
Position: Managing Director

In 1985 the Parys Human Resources range of expert systems based on Francois’s original design were launched, a first in computing. Since the launch the product has been continually developed until in 1992 a second-generation product, Peodesy, replaced Parys.

In 1985 as subsidiary, Unipro was established to market and develop the PROMASS range of products, which provided a integrated MIS, SCADA and Expert System for the process control and manufacturing industries. This was based on Francois’s original designs and ideas for the product developed collaboratively with British Nuclear Fuels in the UK.

By 1988, the company was turning over two million pounds and making handsome profits and an opportunity to purchase a group of companies arose. Unibit purchased a hardware sales company and software contracting company following due diligence by auditors.

Unfortunately this proved to be disastrous as the accounts proved to be falsified and the companies ladened with debt and obligations. Francois sold the companies at a loss to a management buyout. Put the holdings company into administration and purchased his original companies back from the administrator.
