PFM Technologies

PFM's mission is to push the boundary of what can be achieved with low cost I.T. and computer technology.  Through continual software R&D, inexpensive new hardware devices can be exploited as soon as they become commercially available.  These new capabilities are then immediately integrated into the product range where appropriate.

 

Mobile Device Computing
