"I contacted SBM Services in the Summer in the hope that they would be able to support in some way during a period of flux in our central finance team. I had heard whispers of their professionalism but having been let down so significantly from other finance support services in the past, I wasn't overly hopeful. Any doubts I had, however, were quickly allayed and the passion and professionalism with which SBM Services work was very clear to see. What I had intended to be just a 'stop gap' for us actually turned into something by far greater; our financial systems, procedures and controls have all been developed, stream-lined and made even more robust. The level of support that we received was excellent and no query, question was too much for Justine and her team. As outlined to the Managing Director,  I wished I had been introduced to the services many years ago - we are now achieving greater value for money and our financial control and associated decision making is sharper. We no longer need SBM Services to support us day to day as our Finance team is again at full capacity and incredibly well trained by SBM Services however we will continue to work with them, albeit more remotely, as the quality they offer is rarely seen elsewhere."
