There are three directors, Beryl Guiver is Managing Director, Norman Guiver is System Designer and Sales & Marketing Director, and Geoff Ward is Company Secretary.
Norman Guiver started his working life in retail with C&A and Habitat. He set up Microcache in 1981, building a successful business in membership systems before selling it to a PLC in 1999. Along the way there were many innovations – the first company to introduce the Swipe card, member photographs, and the first to recognise the value of membership name and address files.
Beryl Guiver, Norman’s wife, was the Managing Director at Microcache, taking the business from start up to market leader in the UK. After Microcache Beryl became a planning officer at a local authority, and then working as a planning consultant. She has been persuaded to join the uWatch board as Managing Director.
