As an award winning hair dresser, Tasha knew it was time to turn her hand to business and open her own hair salon. Thats when she came to Willis Cooper for a helping hand with her paperwork and in particular payroll.

“My staff are what makes my business run so making sure they get paid on time and accurately is really important to me. Willis Cooper made everything easy for me. As well as sorting out our payroll and putting a staff bonus scheme in place so I can reward my team, Willis Cooper also take care of my book-keeping, accounts, VAT and tax. Endless paperwork is out of the window and I can focus on keeping my team and customers happy.”

Before coming to Willis Cooper, Indigo had been using excel spreadsheets and a very basic accounting package for their sales order processing and stock control. Indigo realised they needed better quality management information to give them a clearer picture of how their business was performing.

“Willis Cooper helped us to turn our business around by getting our accounts in order. We now know how we’re performing in real time, which means we can access information when we need it and make better business decisions on the spot. Robert came to us with a range of planning packages to see what would best suit our business needs. It meant we came away with one easy to use but robust system rather than separate packages and spreadsheets. It has given us clarity, our staff use their time better, our profits are up and we’re all much happier!”
