Full Company Profile
History and Background
LIT is a small company primarily focused on supplying software to the Sheriff’s profession. This also includes the supply of hardware and the implementing of the software and training on the software. LIT also acts as the IT managers in the bigger Sheriff offices and as such is intimately involved in streamlining the processes in a Sheriff’s office to maximise the return on capital spent on training, hardware and software.
LIT was established in 1998 by the two directors when the need was identified for a professional Sheriff Software package that can be implemented on a variety of platforms using diverse hardware.
Each director brought to LIT their individual skills comprising, inter alia software development skills, training skills, expert knowledge of the Sheriff’s profession and the vision to expand the software range.
Although the name was chosen to indicate the focused view of the company towards the Sheriff’s profession, the company have widened their view to develop and implement custom software to a variety of companies.
