Karen and her team are passionate about really getting under the skin of businesses to understand what they want to achieve and to establish which software they do and don’t use and their experiences of it. The team uses this information to deliver a tailored plan to enable clients to best use the technology they have available to them – whether to save time, increase staff productivity, increase employee motivation or streamline processes.
