"Jane and her team... having that facility on-site, just being able to pop in and say 'can you deal with that for us?', it's really important."
John Burton - co-founder, Inset Online
"The accounts team set up a management accounts pack for us - we had weekly, monthly, quarterly review meetings. Our packs, I would say, would rival anything you would find in a corporate business. They grew and grew the more that we grew, but it gave confidence to the business and all the people who worked in it. I still use the financial mechanisms they gave me to this day."
