Given the need for timely, accurate and structured reporting to our valued clients, the SCTPL has opted to commence operations from virtually day one using technology to drive its MIS. The SCTPL accordingly acquired the state of the art CEDEX software CCIE 3.6 version. This has proved to be extremely beneficial to us and to our clients. While the above caters to our counterparties who use CEDEX for MIS, for other clients we have and can offer the facility of tailoring our MIS to their unique needs.

ISO Process
