Our director, Michael van Kleef has more than twenty years experience in the sign manufacturing industry. In the 1990s Michael realised that, with the advent of digital solutions, there was a better way to handle the administration of the manufacturing process. With this thought in mind Michael built a basic job ticketing system for his employer at the time.

After a brief hiatus from 2000 to 2005, Michael returned to the industry and commenced employment with a local sign manufacturer and quickly implemented a similar basic system. Over the following years he utilised his personal time researching and extending his knowledge in database design and programming. PAWS Software is the culmination of this experience.


“My philosophy is simple, I work with my customers to provide the best solution to suit their needs.”
