Brad Halcrow   12 December, 2018

It was in 2016 when we last visited Dan Ogden, director of D&B Electrical. He’d just moved from the garage at home to his first office space to manage a growing list of small domestic projects.

Richard Pratley   20 November, 2018

Rupa Datta   20 November, 2018

Since I joined simPRO 12 months ago, I’ve been working with trade businesses with a view to help them improve their business operations with software.
