Recommendations header image


As an independent consultancy, we are often asked for advice on products and services. There are some products that we consistently recommend, as they solve a specific problem really well, or because we think they are a great product. As a free of charge service, we’ll maintain a list of a few such products on this page.

From time to time we also find great low-cost deals on software or services that we’re happy to recommend. As another free of charge service you’ll find details of these on this page, together with links to the deals.

In the interests of transparency, we may receive commission from sales resulting from some of these links, however our integrity and independence comes first, and we will always favour products and services that we believe are worthy of a recommendation, rather than ones that pay a commission.
