“We are implementing a global ERP, and the excel model we were using to capture and forecast costs had become inefficient due to our changing needs to analyse spend in different ways. We discussed our problems with Clarity and after a face-to-face meeting we followed up with some telephone conversations.
We now have a financial model which accurately collects and presents the cost data of our project. More importantly, the agility and intelligence of the model means we can provide on-the-spot updates to the project’s whole life cost expectations during meetings and presentations.
Giles listened very carefully to our requirements, he took time to ensure he understood every part of our model’s needs and he delivered something which aligns precisely with what we requested. I would certainly use Clarity Consultancy Services again.”
Martin Eves, Director of financial operations, Glory Global Solutions
"We were looking for a reliable, scalable way to analyse business performance, integrating our various data sources into one place. Previous attempts had been unreliable/inaccurate, unmanageable and not scalable.
We now have reliable data and a reporting platform which is transformational to us as a business and enables us to understand in a much clearer way what is going on.
I would absolutely recommend Clarity Consultancy Services. The main reason is the level of organisation in the delivery of the project, as well as the fact that we felt empowered/able to easily own the project when it was delivered."
Tom Stapleton, Managing Director, Travellocal
"I arranged Excel training through Clarity following a recommendation.
Myles delivered a valuable, tailor-made session which taught myself and my colleagues skills relative to how we need to use excel for our work. Myles was extremely patient with us and continuously ensured we were on track.
What I found most beneficial were the working examples he created for us to work with throughout the training.
I would highly recommend Myles. He understands your business need for training and delivers exactly that and much more."
H Wicks, Project Coordinator, TowerEight
"Clarity have created a bespoke Excel spreadsheet for my Company that allows me to produce integrated Sales Forecast, P&L, Balance Sheet and Cashflow Forecasts over a 3 year period. I can quickly produce a set of reports for the bank and for internal forecasting purposes.

I can highly recommend Clarity’s unique blend of IT skill and detailed accountancy knowledge. They are effective and very easy to do business with."

"As a unique and global-leading energy research consultancy, our analysts are a community of highly skilled and talented individuals.

I would have no hesitation in using Clarity’s services again or recommending them to others."

"Thank you so much for the bespoke Intermediate / Advanced Excel course that you carried out on-site at Zuken.
The training was for myself and one other person and was delivered friendly and efficiently. It was well organised and our trainer was really great at adapting it to each of our individual needs. He assisted us in applying the new techniques to some of our existing reports and this has really helped reduce time in our day to day reporting.
I would certainly recommend Clarity to anyone wanting Microsoft Excel training and will not hesitate to use you again."
Katerina Banwell, UK Accountant, Zuken UK Ltd

Their consultants quickly understood our requirements and immediately gave us the confidence that they could provide an appropriate solution. The new price lists were delivered on time, are better presented and simpler to use, and, most importantly, our customers love them.
I am very happy to recommend Clarity Consultancy Services."

Clarity provided resource in four areas: Project management, business analysis, testing and Excel spreadsheet expertise. The Clarity team were a key conduit between the business SME and my development team and contributed significantly to the project being delivered on time and to the agreed budget.
I regularly recommend Clarity to my clients and look forward to working with the team again."
