Jim Crockett – Cumberland Consulting

Managing Director“We have been extremely happy with the timeliness and quality of the service from bi5 and in particular the end product. We needed a simpler and easier application to analyse and map data to populate client organisational culture maps. Brendan worked quickly and effectively to provide the enhanced application and was very supportive in the roll out stage – going beyond what was contracted!”

Christian Urry – StateSwim

Managing Director“We have been working with Brendan for a number of years now, the budget analysis system he created for our business has been perfect. We have now been running it for over four years and have had no issues. In fact it has been so good that we have extended it’s life out for another three years without major work being required. Brendan’s knowledge of the system is excellent and his quick understanding of what we required made the build quick and painless. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brendan and bi5 Business Solutions for your business.”
