SYNOPSIS

The Singer System 10 was a small business computer introduced in 1970 by the Singer Sewing Machine company. This unlikely phenomenon resulted from Singer’s 1965 purchase of Frieden (of Flexowriter fame) after Frieden had proposed a semi-online system for Singer’s shops, IBM and NCR both having declined to bid. B

By 1976, Singer Business Machines was in financial trouble, so the enterprise was sold to ICL who continued to successfully sell System 10 until a modernised version, System 25 was developed.
