My experience goes far beyond packaged software implementation, having led major custom software development projects, supporting home grown planning/forecasting systems and home grown Point of Sale (POS) systems on mobile device platforms, including application authentication, security, token/encryption and bank card processing certification. Having led Training and Innovation Teams, I have worked on multiple emerging technology projects, to include virtual heat mapping, RFID and Mobile Platform integration.
