The following newsletter
outlines the news from the Superstructure Group
AQD team for March/April 2006.
very warm welcome to all our new clients - Monarch
Airlines, easyJet and CAA Fiji. Our new
clients have been successfully implementing AQD

the last few months there have been a few changes
in the AQD team. Many of you know that Eddie Rogan
joined the Superstructure team in the middle of
last year. Eddie is now the AQD Business Manager.
of you will have also heard that Sue Glyde has
been out of action for a while due to health
reasons. Although Sue has been working part time, she has found that she is unable to handle the ambitious goal that she set
herself and the pressure of work has continued to affect her health. She has therefore
regretfully tendered her resignation from the business. I am sure you will join
with us in wishing Sue well in the future.

next user conference will be held in New Zealand in March 2007.
We appreciate that a number of you were
looking forward to one this year, however, we feel
that it is much more important that the AQD team
remains totally focussed on AQD+ rather than
organising and preparing for a conference; anyway
March is a much nicer time of the year in NZ!

regularly communicate AQD+ progress and other
important news to you via this Newsletter. Plan on
meeting us in Paris in October.
