"Service is very good, with reasonable repair times and overall costs. Parts are always avaiable locally so the turnaround time is usually kept to within a week, I can wholeheartedly recommend Cipherlab and have on many occasions"

Mark Hawkins - General Manager - Test-Write Australia

"We chose Cipherlab because we did do our homework and looked around. The Cipherlab portable data terminals represented very good and better value for money to the rest of their competition. We would definitely recommend Cipherlab"

Chris Castley - General Manager - SSS Sewing & Craft Supplies.

"I am really impressed with the Cipherlab 8570, the ease of use and particularly the support. The turn around times in ordering the equipment was also fantastic"

Graeme Milgate - IT Manager - Trade Tools Direct - Qld

"Prior to using CipherLab, we purchased a well known brand name, but never could quite get them to integrate into our system. The CipherLab 8001 terminals we purchased later have worked without any problems at all for our stocktaking requirements, The free software that comes with the terminals (Forge Batch Application Generator) was relatively quite easy to use and easy to integrate into our system. I wish we had used CipherLab earlier!"

Shane Van Houlsen - Information Systems Manager - R.S.P.C.A. Victoria
