Nick was very knowledgeable, helpful and dedicated to the project. - Practical Action

Last week it was a script for app deployments and assignments, this week Nick spent some of his own time, writing up a script to support a customer mobile migration to save Phoenix and the customer a considerable amount of time on each migration batch. Not only did Nick write it up, test and share it, but Nick was also kind enough to take me through the process of the steps. — Phoenix Software

Fantastic delivery as per usual…Customer was very complimentary of the help, guidance and depth of knowledge Nick has provided and taken the time to share with them. — National House Building Council

We are really pleased with the service Nick offered and wanted to express our sincere thanks, for all the work he completed for us…nothing was too much trouble, he communicated with us all the time and was so reliable and a please to work with. — Epping Forest District Council

Thank you very much for the Low-level Design Document, all in all an excellent document with very well collated requirements. — The Royal Household

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the work on AutoPilot that Nick Benton did with us. Nick’s expertise and passion for the subject area really shone through, and so the work he delivered is absolutely top quality. Not only that, he was great at explaining to me exactly what he was doing, why he was doing it, and how everything works and links together so I’m in a really good position to manage this going forward. I learned a lot! — West Yorkshire Fire

Thank you Nick…Possibly the most helpful training session we’ve had since your last one! — Cambridge Enterprise

I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for the excellent work completed by Nick. I found him very knowledgeable, professional and overall a great guy to work alongside with. He delivered high quality work even whilst working around (and highlighting) a number of issues related to our network setup …. Its always nice to watch someone good at their work, who shows good emotional intelligence and wants the best for all. — Epping Forest District Council

I’d like to pass my very positive feedback on all the engagement team members to date, but note in particular the positive feedback I’ve had from my team members on the time / session pieces spent with Nick Benton, who has really shone in his instant understanding of any aspect the team has put to him. My team are keen to get him on time retainer to have an MOT from Nick every 6 months or so, so positive their time with him. — SEEMiS Group LLP

We were all very impressed with Nick’s knowledge and professionalism during the course of the implementation and are very pleased with the outcomes. — Torbay Council

Excellent work from Nick. Clear comms every day and solutions provided where the project differed from initial expectations. Very helpful approach and happy to teach me parts of the process. Wouldn’t hesitate to use such services again. — University of Gloucestershire

Nick Benton is bloody fantastic! I haven’t learned so much useful information since I left school, and that was a very very long time ago. He has a really nice manner, and is a brilliant trainer! Thank you for organising this. Far more useful than I could possibly put into words. — Cambridge Enterprise

Just some feedback to share from my side as well, Nick was absolutely fantastic on that call we had on Friday! Really good engagement with every member of the team that was on the call and handled every question brilliantly! It was clear he really knew his stuff and I’m sure that level of expertise will have positioned us well for further works with this customer on this project. — Phoenix Software
