Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

Yes – a testimonial for Nathan Elcoate Axis IT Consulting who holds the IT Category in our chapter, I had been through 2 book keepers and around $1000 to help me establish and learn MYOB so far Nathan came and sat with me at my home on Monday and in 2.5 hours I had learnt more that the 2 other book keepers combined and for a third of the cost. I would recommend Nathan to anyone with Accounting Software or IT queries in general he is professional, polite and very knowledgeable and comes across very well and in a simple way to make a technical subject very user friendly. Easy when you know how!

Also, any developers that would like a professionals company to feed their pipeline of work through to ensure their investors purchases are leased up the moment the handover and purchase has been completed.
