“We engaged Michael’s services whilst working with a client on optimising their operations.  We had identified ‘time waste’ through reviewing our client’s service delivery and job handling.

By developing an excel based diagnostics system, we were able to increase the capabilities of our client’s call centre, enabling staff to diagnose their customer’s fault issues before booking out their engineers’ time and materials.  This allowed our client to increase productivity, improve customer service, and increase capacity during peak times.

We would recommend Michael’s work in supporting process improvements, in addition to enhancing reporting capabilities within an organisation.”

“The Spreadsheet Company has supported our national mineral extraction business for the last two years through the progressive development of a mineral run-down and continuity tool. This tool is used to manage all of our active and dormant quarry resources and allows us to quickly and visually assess our mineral assets with the purpose of allowing us to focus on those areas which need additional resourcing for the future. This is done in order that we can maintain continuity of supply nationally important and strategic construction products.

Michael has achieved this functionality for us by bringing to a life a vision that we had for a “dashboard” which would present all of the key data required for a given selection of geographies, market areas and mineral types. Michael has achieved this for us by the use of bespoke data manipulation/ chart production with a great deal of customised coding to facilitate.

The end result has allowed our business to make a step-change in the way that we manage our current asset base and also plan appropriately for the future. I would highly recommend Michael’s services, not just for his technical knowledge and advanced understanding of spreadsheet software but also for the way in which grasped our particular issues and was then able to develop and offer practical solutions.”

“Michael has helped me develop a series of macros that have manipulated large amounts of data within an Excel workbook and this has meant that I can easily obtain the required results from a myriad of information. Without these macros, I would have not been able to perform the work required.

Michael quickly and straightforwardly showed me how to achieve the results I require by developing macros to suit my individual needs. Michael has sat with me in my office and developed the required macros. Also, before he left, he tested the macros both with correct and incorrect inputs to ensure that either they ran as expected or presented a suitable error message. Michael has always been very patient as he has taught me the basics of macro development. In addition, he has been at the end of the phone when I require advice on how to make simple changes to a macro we have developed.

Michael is a very useful person to have on hand when you require a specialist application for your work in Excel.”

“Michael provided a tailored, practical solution that met our needs exactly. He listened to what we needed and managed to create something that everyone in the office can use, even the people that are usually spreadsheet-phobic.”

“I have known Michael for over 11 years through his work for the business training element of Broadland District Council. Michael is extremely competent in working with a huge range of computing abilities and we regularly receive positive feedback praising Michael for his patience, clear instructions and professional methods of training delivery.

Michael has, on many occasions, arranged and run bespoke training courses for the staff of Broadland District Council as part of their ongoing corporate learning and development. These courses are both enjoyable to attend and extremely informative. They have proven invaluable in keeping staff up to date with the fast pace of change which is ever present in computer software packages.

From a personal perspective, I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to prospective clients.”

“Michael came in to help us with extracting information from a database, to produce usable reports with limited work. Usually the work required to generate KPIs and reports would take hours and would often leave no time to analyse the data correctly. Michaels skill set helps us now generate what we need very quickly and efficiently. Michael also integrates himself well into the team and gains the levels of understanding he needs to meet your requirements”.

“The Hospital approached Michael to create an easy to use data system for the recording of Incidents and Accidents.  Michael was professional throughout and gave positive solutions to idiosyncrasies we discovered along the way.  We are so pleased with the final product that we have approached Michael for his assistance in creating other data tools too.”

“The work undertaken by Michael has greatly improved our management reporting requirements by reducing man hours required to populate and also by guaranteeing accuracy by automating the system. The scope he executed was completed quickly, and he intuitively understood our particular requirements. He not only made suggestions to improve the specifications we had given, but also implemented them above and beyond our expectations.”

“The Spreadsheet Company designed a bespoke tool to input and display engineering data in Excel, this enabled me to reduce the time taken to populate and graphically display data reviewed on daily basis.  The initial spreadsheet was successfully used for a 3 months’ period it became clear that the data could be even more powerful with some additional structure.

After a quick 5-minute discussion with Michael, and emailing the existing file across, this was returned 24 hours later with all requirements achieved – fantastic service which I have no hesitation recommending him. I will continue to use The Spreadsheet Company for any future requirements.”

“Michael was recommended to us several years ago when we were looking for help with spreadsheet issues. He took the time to meet with us, discussed in depth exactly what we needed, what he could do to help and laid out the options.

Over a period of collaboration, Michael completely revolutionised our whole approach to spreadsheets and produced tools that were several times more powerful than anything we had even hoped for, in a fraction of the time we had imagined it would take.

Michael is quite simply brilliant. His understanding of the issues his clients face is perfect, his analysis and talent for finding practical solutions is second to none and I have great pleasure in wholeheartedly recommending his services.”
