These are testimonials from some of the businesses and organizations that C-A-Solutions has worked with over the years.

C-A-Solutions - References

Abbey Garage Doors

I can highly recommend C-A-Solutions. They updated my computer system with the software my business needed to run efficiently. I cannot fault the advice and after sales service we received.

Barry Atkinson - Managing Director

City Church Newcastle

When we took on new staff to look after our church finances we were in considerable need of training and support. Bob Grimshaw of C-A-Solutions has proved to be the ideal choice. He is an excellent teacher and has imparted both skills and confidence.

Bob adapted himself to our systems (we use TAS Books accounting software) and helped us develop it, particularly on the reporting of financial information to our trustees. He made sure he understood our needs and made excellent recommendations that have saved us a lot of time and extra work. Our finances now run very smoothly, which is very much to his credit. His ongoing support is thorough and consistent and is much appreciated by our staff.

I wholeheartedly recommend C-A-Solutions for the charitable sector.


Good News Broadcasting Association

Bob Grimshaw visited our offices for a week, providing training in Sage Line 50 and assisting with the rectification of accounting problems.

He was highly competent, leaving staff happy and confident in their use of the software, with newly acquired skills at bank reconciliation, and able to generate a clear table of accounts with accurate performance figures. Bob also was invaluable in setting up systems for reconciliation. His work was greatly appreciated by our auditors as well as the management of Good News Broadcasting.

Anyone considering training in Sage or similar accounting systems should speak to Bob Grimshaw. They can expect proven expertise at a far more reasonable price than will be achieved elsewhere.

Well done, and thanks, Bob!.

Chalmers Dobson - Business Manager/Company Secretary

Kintyre Holdings Ltd

We came upon Bob Grimshaw by way of referral but without any great expectations.

What we experienced was a highly professional IT specialist who was constantly concerned that we had the most efficient systems for our business rather than trying for a quick buck. I have no doubt that this was often at some financial loss to Bob.

We no longer make IT decisions without consulting Bob Grimshaw.

Michael Carmichael - Managing Director

Thirdspace Living Ltd

When thirdspace began operations in October 2000, we had nearly sixty staff spread across three locations (UK, Canada and USA). We needed a system that would cope with remote working, multi-currencies, detailed purchase ordering and a large and complex asset register.

Bob Grimshaw assessed our circumstances and came up with the Access Accounts "Horizons" software. This was installed initially in our UK head office and then rolled out to the other locations. Data for our budgets and fixed assets was uploaded from spreadsheets without the need for time consuming re-keying. The training we received was specifically geared to our operations and we have always received a prompt response to support calls.

Our Financial Controller is now able to keep track of our operations around the world and access up to date management information for all departments in all locations.

C-A-Solutions have also provided holiday cover for our accounts staff and undertaken project work for us at short notice.
