What our clients are saying...
Thanks to IPCS INTOX, we can now do things that were not possible without a large amount of work. We can create reports for a day, month or year – any time period we want, with ease. We can ask the System very specific questions, allowing us to respond quickly in emergency situations. It has also helped us extract information used in writing papers for presentation at international conferences and meetings.
