Key people at Modus

Andrew Crockford

Andrew started his IT career developing games in his teens before graduating with a Computer Science honours degree. He then worked as a consultant and technical architect for System Integrators such as IBM, SHL (now EDS) and IT Workshop.  Before forming Modus Computing in 1996, he spent the majority of his time leading migration projects for banks and insurance companies in the City.

Having all the requisite experience in issues involved in remotely managing and automating systems, he identified areas of the desktop management market then being avoided by the main software vendors. This led to Modus’ first product: Intelligent Install.

By the year 2000, Andrew was joined by Richard to form Modus Interactive, with the aim of writing products that make desktop management much easier to achieve than with competitive products. Since then Modus has achieved success both with long term management of the desktop for small to medium companies, and large scale high volume migration projects.
