Quite Useful Stuff (QUS) is located in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, England.
We developed one of the first microcomputer-based word processors - long before Microsoft Word became a twinkle in Bill Gate's eye.
We developed the first hardware to link digital typesetters to microcomputers and the first micro-based typesetting system that led the way from hot metal to digital typesetting.
We invented, and named, the dongle.
We were instrumental in the development of MFPs, Multi Functional Peripherals, offering printing, scanning, copying, facsimile and email transmission - with our software being used by almost all of the world's office equipment manufacturers under their own brand names.
We developed the world's most advanced clay shooting simulator, DryFire, which is in use wordwide by shooters from beginners to national, international, world and olympic champions. DryFire enables shooters to perfect their skills in the comfort of their own homes through repetitive practice (some users shoot hundreds of targets every evening) and with a level of accuracy and feedback that has to be seen to be believed.
We have developed products for the aero space industry and for the mobile phone industry.
We have developed systems in use worldwide in the fast-food industry.
Our list of developments is long and, we are pleased to say, most of them have sold extremely well.
Our business model is to develop new products and then work alongside selected business partners to sell those products worldwide. In most cases the products are manufactured and distributed under licence by our business partners using their own brand names.
Our strength is development, our partners' strengths are manufacturing, marketing, distribution and sales.
