At the end of 2019 we, at AIP, decided to grow our ways to get in contact with the E-Brida & Mercado users community. For many years we had the experience to be physically next to the users and to look them in their eyes when working together on projects. We started to use Webinars […]

We want to thank everyone with whom we have worked this year. In 2020, we worked even more remotely, and our appreciation is at least as high as in recent years. Since we weren’t able to visit you, we haven’t had the opportunity to thank you personally. That’s why we would like to thank you […]
