“Before meeting Mike, I was very sceptical about going down the App route with our business. With a quick demonstration, my mind was changed immediately. The App that Force 4 have created is extremely user friendly, clear and reliable ...
Mike has offered us an extremely good service throughout the project, responding quickly to emails and answering any queries, explains all the computer jargon in plain English and gave me an in depth look at the back office and how to edit and change the information myself, a great bonus if like us you need to change anything quickly. Pleasure working with you Mike"
