StoreData revenues slide, but profit up in 2009

Preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2009 from Styles and Wood show that its retail-oriented construction collaboration solution provider StoreData suffered another fall in revenues, though increased margins meant it returned an increased profit (see 2008 results post).
