Over the past 2 years, Julia has been monitoring our Management Information. After she highlighted a down turn in our profits we decided to stop offering traditional printing which is very labour intensive with poor profit margins. The sale of the old printing press has boosted our cashflow enabling us to develop our digital print and T-shirt printing businesses. With this change in production a new digital printer was needed, Julia was instrumental in providing the comprehensive Management Information to support the required financing. Julia has often questioned our expenditure and challenged our usual way of working. As we do not need the large premises that we use we are in the process of selling it to move to a smaller unit. This will reduce our monthly outgoings and also enable us to relocate to an area where we will have more walk in business. Julia has regularly introduced us to local advisers, e.g. Phil Peak from the Coventry the Clearing House. After meeting up with Richard Warren from the Chamber of Commerce we have obtained a Marketing Growth Voucher and are currently working on our strategic business plan. Additionally, after finding out about the Coventry and Warwickshire Incubation Programme we have accessed some free training to further develop our social media and digital marketing skills. In short, Julia has not only provided the essential all round accounting knowledge and experience that we needed but she has also been able to apply her commercial acumen to our specific needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other businesses.
