Stephen was first recommended to us in 2011 to carry out financial due diligence during an acquisition. For three months I worked very closely with Stephen and came to depend upon his incisive analysis and ability to accurately diagnose the causes of problems. We were then able to manage out these issues and gradually successfully integrate the acquired company into our business.
In 2013 we asked Stephen to help us overhaul our accounting systems to produce and disseminate the data we really need to run our business. The quality and clarity of the reports, produced on time every month by the Enquire Software, are empowering our management team and driving efficiencies in our business. We have complete confidence in the management information we receive.
Stephen’s intuitive understanding of our needs and pragmatic customer focussed manner, married to an unsurpassed ability to analyse complex data, is a winning formula.

Throughout the assignment, we found Stephen to be thorough, and professional. He quickly developed a firm grasp on some complex matters, and turned the work around in a challenging timescale, always keeping us up to speed with developments. Good communication, and clear reporting resulted in an overall pleasing outcome for us. Stephen was a pleasure to work with.

Stephen helps with our more weighty analysis. He not only works quickly and accurately but shows a great deal of business insight when it comes to interpretation. The last piece of work he undertook for us involved me giving him a data-dump of 243,000 lines of transactional data from one of our clients and a bunch of questions from me. What we got back a few days later was a concise set of measures identifying key behaviour patterns among their customers. I would recommend Stephen wholeheartedly.

Stephen’s support in sensitive price negotiations with a major customer was of great value to our company. His analysis of key business drivers and sensitivities gave us a greater degree of confidence in agreeing prices with our customer. It gave us the professional edge to present a full and frank case and keep up with our competition.
