My testimonials and feedback


A common difference between good and bad startups is the people. Ideas are easy, but people add the magic.Whether as clients, colleagues, co-founders or investors, I've worked with people that helped make a big difference. Between us, we've seen ideas come and go. Some good and some bad ideas. Some brilliant but too early, and some good but too late. And occasionally, ideas that stood out and had a chance,... because of the people.

Ideas are great, but people matter


Harvey Cuthbert, Saas Startup Founder

"Steve has been an invaluable mentor during our businesses journey. He always thinks ahead and outside of the box. A very supportive and highly experienced mentor that is a great asset for anyone looking to grow"

Adam Evans, Sales Director

"Steve is one of those people who can analyse new requirements and visualise smart new digital ways of doing things way before most others. But not just tech for tech's sake. His solutions are well thought out to benefit all parts of a business, from the customer offering to all operational processes. He knows how to communicate all this new tech to non-techies too!"


Martin P., Founder, ALXI

"I've worked with Steve a number of times over 12 years. He's always extremely diligent, looking to provide the most streamlined technical solution possible, with support that goes above and beyond. He's constantly looking outside the box, thinking about things from all angles and ready to offer clear-headed business analysis & reporting whenever needed"

Mark Birch, Software Developer

"Steve is probably the most tenacious, diligent, hardworking and knowledgeable person I've ever met. He always sees things through to their conclusion, and will make sure that even the smallest details are considered and catered for. Steve excels at managing others and keeps a high-level perspective"


Greg Sellam, Sales Director

"I worked with Steve on the migration of SMS Expert to Qadex. Steve was calm, clear, positive and thorough during the very busy period of documenting the system and training the new Directors, Helpdesk, Business Analysts and Offshore technical teams. Steve has the skills and experience to engage with stakeholders at every level"

Tony Peters, Digital Consultant

"Steve is a dedicated entrepreneur with the drive and ambition to move forward and stay ahead of the pack. I enjoyed working with Steve both when his role was project manager and when he was CEO. His attitude is excellent and if the opportunity arose, I would definitely consider working with him again"


Luke Antins, Software Consultant

"Steve has always been a pleasure to work with. Always on the ball, quick to respond and a very nice chap to discuss solutions with over the phone"

Alex Shepherd, Support Specialist

"Working with Steve in the early days of Easily.uk and automated domain registration, I found him to be an innovator who likes to keep things simple. It seems to me that a lot of technology companies learnt from him"


Kevin Parker, Long-term Client

"Superb service from Steve. He built an easy online portal and had a real 'can do' approach to help develop our business. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve and he works in a pro-active manner"

Nathan Hudson, Transformation Specialist

"I worked with Steve for over 5 years. Highly diligent with a no nonsense attitude, whilst being highly personable, Steve is a pleasure to work with"

Save time. Save paper. Save money.


Paper receipts are outdated, costly and limit customer engagement. 11.2bn paper receipts cost UK retailers approximately £32m p.a. They damage our environment as 200,000 trees are used for this receipt paper and most cannot be recycled.UK retailers want to remove paper receipts, but there is no digital solution that customers want to use e.g. email address exchange complicates and slows checkouts, costing money and creating frustration.Imagine if receipts could be exchanged at the till with just a tap on the card reader.This is the UK's first tappable digital receipt app that makes digital receipting fast and easy, with no awkward email exchange at checkout and where retailers save money because our receipts cost less than paper.

Taking away the pain from managing draw games


Charity and commercial draws are hugely popular. Support a local charity by entering a raffle. A national charity by entering their lottery. Win a car at the airport. Win a house online. Win a holiday competition. Play a mobile sports predictor competition. Join a hundred club. Win a TV competition. Enter a free draw… Anywhere in the world. People love playing draw games.All these draw games require a platform to manage their players and operate the games. With our cloud-hosted, microservices platform, operators can achieve much higher margins, launch new games and build their income streams. They don't require hugely costly 3rd party platforms and can avoid the costly process of custom application development with our proven pre-built software platform.It's a Unicorn Market.

The Consultant shall ensure that persons authorised to process the Client Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality, or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.32. The Consultant shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security for the Client Personal Data. The Consultant shall provide the Client with details of all such technical and organisational measures on reasonable written notice from the Client.33. Where the Consultant is acting as a Processor of Client Personal Data in connection with its delivery of Services under this Agreement the Consultant may retain and use the services of third parties who from time to time may need to process Personal Data (each a Third Party Sub-Processor).

If the Client objects to any such changes before their implementation, then the parties shall discuss commercially reasonable alternative solutions in good faith.36. The Consultant shall be liable for the acts and omissions of the Third Party Sub-Processor to the same extent the Consultant would be liable if performing the services of each Third Party Sub-Processor directly under the terms of this Agreement.37.

Before processing any sensitive personal data, the Client will take all steps necessary to ensure it can process such information lawfully.41. The Client will use appropriate technical and organisational measures to keep the Consultant's data secure, and in particular, to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. More information on data security can be found in the Client's Information Security Policy.Warranties and indemnities42.

The Consultant must indemnify the Client and keep it fully and effectively indemnified in respect of any claims, demands, assessments, contributions or deductions made by the relevant authorities against the Client for income tax or National Insurance Contributions relating to the Services together with any interest and penalties, unless the claim or demand was caused by the Client's default or negligence. The Client may make deductions from payments due to the Consultant to satisfy this indemnity.47. All warranties, conditions and other terms implied by law are excluded from this Agreement unless stated in this Agreement, as far as permitted by law.Intellectual Property48. The Consultant assigns to the Client absolutely as beneficial owner with full title guarantee the Intellectual Property for the full term of those rights and all renewals and extensions, together with all accrued rights. The Consultant will promptly disclose and give to the Client all Intellectual Property for its exclusive use and benefit and keep their details confidential, delivering all documents relating to any part of the invention to the Client whenever requested by the Client. The Consultant will not register or attempt to register any of the intellectual property rights in any work carried out during this Agreement, nor any inventions, unless at the Client's request. The Consultant will do all acts necessary to confirm that absolute title in all intellectual property rights in the work carried out during this Agreement and any inventions has passed, or will pass, to the Client.

The Consultant appoints the Client to execute documents on its behalf and do all things necessary or desirable for the Client to obtain the full benefit of this clause.Circumstances beyond the control of the parties51.

In these circumstances, the affected party must notify the other party or parties as soon as reasonably practicable. The notified party or parties can suspend or terminate the Agreement immediately by notifying the other party.Entire Agreement52.

Nothing in this clause limits or excludes any liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.General53. No party can assign, transfer or sub-contract their rights and obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party, which cannot be unreasonably withheld.54.
