Consult has a proven track record, with satisfied clients

Business administration now streamlined

"At the suggestion of our accountant, we decided to change from our existing  provider to XERO / Workflow Max.  This was approached with some trepidation as we’d been using Quickbooks for many years and were comfortable with it.

Any anxiety was quickly alleviated when we met with Joanna for training sessions. She had taken the time to familiarise herself with our business so knew what we would require from Workflow Max and could concentrate on helping with the relevant features.

Since the initial setting up, Joanna has answered any questions promptly, clearly and with a great deal of patience. We are so pleased we made the move to XERO / Workflow Max and had we realised how much it would streamline the administration side of the business, wish we’d done it sooner."
- Alison and David Zorn, Zorn Surveying Ltd

Advice and support invaluable

"As a new business owner the advice, product information and friendly support I have received from Consult has been invaluable as I take on the steep learning curve of accounting packages. Consult have provided excellent and efficient services when I have had difficulty with MYOB. Remote access has allowed Joanna to fix up errors I have made and, along with telephone support, provides a wonderful training platform as my needs arise. I would highly recommend Consult to other small business owners like myself who also value personal commitment to quality service."
- Bee, Director at Bee Creative Ltd

Setting up and sorting out problems 

"As a small business we have used the services of Joanna to help with setting up and sorting out any problems we have had with MYOB over the past few years. She has always been extremely helpful and we have really appreciated her time, patience and excellent advice. We would like to highly recommend Consult Ltd to everyone."
- Viv and Jim, Fleet Focus Ltd

Training and a wealth of knowledge 

“Over the last year our business has gone through huge change, we rebranded, stepped out on our own and reassessed a lot of the systems we had previously been running in the business. This resulted in us switching to Xero, I was referred to Joanna at Consult Ltd and she has been great in making the transition from our previous provider completely seamless, she has also provided training along the way and has a wealth of knowledge to make sure we are getting the most out of Xero. The time we are now having to spend looking after accounts and payroll has reduced considerably and whenever we have had any queries she has been very efficient in helping us resolve them.”
- Richard Maloy, Director/Financial Advisor, Milestone Financial

Advice and training stops the struggle

Thank you so much for your help, without your advice and training on getting started with Xero I'd still be struggling along. It was invaluable. I've got everything imported, reconciled and balanced and it even matches my current bank balances. I can't believe I've done it! So much easier knowing all the short cuts and where to find the right tools.
- Carolyn Neville, Bliss By Design

A seamless software switch

“As a business that grew out of a home garage, with very basic systems for inventory and sales invoicing, the switch to a comprehensive inventory management system was fairly intimidating. Joanna at Consult made this a painless process for us. Joanna set up all of our existing inventory and production assemblies for us in Unleashed, taking time to set it up in a way that made the most sense for our brewing operation. Joanna also looked after the Xero integration setup, and guided us through managing the software moving forward. The switch was seamless and Joanna was always available to help with any queries as we became familiar with the software. I highly recommend Consult for anybody wanting to make the switch to a more comprehensive software.”
- Matt Smith, Brewer & Founder - Brave Brewing Company

Instrumental in solving software issues

"I highly recommend Joanna and her team for their sound knowledge, advice and affordability.   My company, Greenscene Arboriculture Ltd, has been a client of Consult Ltd for a number of years, and Joanna has been instrumental in helping us solve our software (accounting) issues.   Attentive to the issues raised, Jo thoroughly researches options and advocates with the software writers for suggested improvements within the packages.  More recently Consult has been critical in assisting us with selecting job management software which I am fully confident will streamline administration, thereby saving us both time and money.  After only a short time I know it will be something we'll wonder how we ever did without!"
- Wendy Lawrence, Manager at Greenscene Arboriculture Ltd

Daunting task went smooth and flawlessly

“Joanna Monteith has helped me transition from a Veterinary Software that included accounting to Xero for our Veterinary Clinic. A large task and a little daunting Joanna helped me making the transition smooth and flawless. Every question I emailed her I would get an answer back within an hour, if I needed to drop by for a meeting she would always make time, if I needed her to fix a mistake I made she would help me instantly. My only regret is that I didn't start Xero earlier.”
- Elise Sandkuijl, Owner, Clive Cottage Veterinary Clinic
