I've have been programming Microsoft Excel since 1998. I have seen Cutol grow from a very basic concept of importing a Trial Balance into a spreadsheet automatically (originally in Lotus 123) into the sophisticated software that it is today. Even though I have spent countless hours, days and years with my head buried in Microsoft Excel's development platform I am still finding new ways of doing things and constantly learning.
I've always felt that our greatest achievements go unnoticed as we remove the hard decisions from the user and put them into the software. This is probably what I am most proud of.
I have been with Cutol from the start, all those years ago! I'm a petrolhead mainly, but also a reasonably good motor trade accountant. I have spent lots of time with BMW and other franchises, both as a consultant and also as director of both car and bike dealerships. I enjoy the challenge of designing a user friendly, “fits all”, multi company, multi franchise solution in Cutol. I'm pretty good with ADP/CDK/Autoline, but also adaptable to other systems.
Love the trade, Cutol and the people within both.
I've been working with the guys at Cutol since 2011. I provide the software development framework used by Cutol SwiftCheck and the Cutol Server utilities. I have been a IT specialist all my life, working with a huge variety of technologies in many industries including computer forensics and fraud analysis with Scotland Yard to computer systems integration and reporting in the Music and Publishing sectors.
I'm a married man with 3 young children and spend most of my down time playing Princes and Princesses, Superheroes or Sleeping Lions.
I have been on the team since 2017 having completed my A levels and my AAT qualifications. Helping Dealers accomplish their goals and overcoming challenges provides me with a great deal of pride in my work. Building a set of accounts from a Trial Balance for new clients is very rewarding. This is the start of the relationship building which continues as support is provided as our clients businesses grow.
Outside of work, is all about fishing...
I've been working for Kira Developments for a number of years now and deal with all aspects of the administration of the business. I have no programming skills what-so-ever and have no idea how any of the Cutol software products work. My skills lie in ensuring the administration of the business runs as smooth as possible and if you have any queries with regarding invoices or wish for statements to be issued then I am your contact.
“Using Cutol has certainly reduced the amount of time Accountants spend producing monthly management accounts, its ‘intelligence’ checks ensures accuracy of reporting and is so easy to use. The latest version incorporates a group housekeeping facility and is brilliant for updating all of our branch accounts at once which ensures a consistent approach and even updates our budgets at the same time. The DOC reporting module is used by all managers and an excellent monitoring tool to push the business forward. The ease of information available through the Cutol software, and the speedy response and help received from the support team has enabled the business to progress with an efficient and effective reporting system.”
"Wollaston relies on Cutol to support our daily, weekly and monthly operating controls. The management account amendment wizards make it easy to modify as our business evolves and the DOC has been embraced by all our managers to prepare meaningful forecasts and challenge their results particularly with its ability to drill into transactions"
