Customer Feedback

Kedel Ltd

Lewis Walch, IT Manager

We found Stephen by accident while collecting our kids at the same school, but we are so glad we did. Worked fast and kept at it till everything was setup just as we needed, even though our brief was a bit vague and changed midstream. Really great to work with, giving us feedback at every stage. We will definitely use him again and highly recommend his services.
