Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from major clients over the years.

For years we struggled to keep our books in order & submit our tax returns on time.
As a small business, we knew it shouldn't be so hard to get organised, yet we struggled to find a pro-active bookkeeper to guide us in the right direction.
That is until we found AccountsPro Solutions.  Now, our accounts are up to date and well-managed.
We are simply blown away by how professional and organised everything is, and we're finally getting the financial and accounting advice we've always needed.
To top it off, AccountsPro Solutions' rates are affordable for any small business.
On a personal note, we are so grateful to Caz, who always goes above and beyond in her work and whose attention to detail is astounding.
 
For the first time in four years, I feel at ease when thinking about our books and admin. I know we're doing things properly at last!
I cannot over-emphasize how highly I recommend AccountsPro Solutions.

My personal recommendation letter for Caz Livingstone.

I would highly recommend Caz for any role that involves managing people, and creating operating systems within a business, as well as dealing with customers in a professional manner, to even doing accounts, developing pricing, importing and exporting, marketing or even delivering training and support to others. Caz demonstrates many skills that are just so valuable for business.

Caz has been my main contact in South Africa since June 2009 (over 10 years now), and without her expertise, skills and knowledge we would have not been able to establish further business and continue with our customer base for support locally.

Over the last 10 years Caz has assisted me with brand awareness, dissolving specific representative issues with past contracts and supported me with cancelling contracts and recovery of stock. Caz was able to be there for customers who had been unhappy and threatening legal action, and was able to calm down the situation in a very professional manner and offer real solutions for our business and our clients at that time.

Further on from that Caz handled all our Client servicing for ordering of products, developed all our marketing material (she has a real creative flare in this area) and was able to develop new pricing, taking into consideration the importing and distribution of products. Caz then created a website shop and handled all the local admin, support, invoicing, and follow up for all our clients locally.

In 2013 Caz assisted me with developing some great interactive PowerPoint workbooks for our Registered training organisation. This qualification, Graduate Diploma in Salon Management, was used by government organisations in Australia.

We were very fortunate to have Caz on our team as we were able to deliver incredible resources for students and for trainers and assessors in record time. Her skill in creating documents using PowerPoint, developing Excel spreadsheets and creating brochures seems to just flow for Caz.

I believe that Caz has incredible business sense, and her knowledge in all areas from computers, to programming, accounts, and invoicing, developing systems and ensuring operations run smoothly, as well as her professional way she can communicate and deliver information would be a huge asset for any organisation contracting or employing Caz to develop, manage or make easier, operations, in their business.

Caz has always been a quick learner and when I had to teach her a new skill she didn’t have already, she was able to grasp it quickly and work on her own performing any duties in no time. What she brought to the new skill was even more skills and systems, which allowed us to become more streamlined.

Caz has always been a very valued member of our team as a contractor to us, and I would hope she could take her skills and knowledge and assist other businesses they way she has assisted us over the last 10 years. I wish her all the best in her future ventures and know she will be a valued asset to any company.

If you would like to chat to me personally you are welcome to contact me via email, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Yours Sincerely
Tracey Hammond

We requested and received service from Mrs. Livingstone for our admin and marketing set up, while The PC Place was located on the South Coast, KZN, South Africa.

Mrs. Livingstone’s well thought out process of business and the practices of the same, were invaluable to us as we were new business owners.

She assisted us with the design of our logo, the advertising on Facebook, and the contracts for our representatives, and also our accounting software.

Her ability to work around systems is phenomenal.

Her research abilities to ensure that we are doing the right thing only goes to show her level of integrity.

She is amazing when it comes to software and artwork. Her accounting skills are second to none.

It is with gratitude that we recommend her work ethic and style as one of a classic. This because, gone are the days where you get value for money. Thank you Mrs Livingstone, for not only your continued support of our needs but also the ability to show us the right way.

This should stand as a recommendation of the highest standard.

Thank you

This letter serves to confirm that we have outsourced our administration, book-keeping and accounting and various business management tasks to Caz since 1993, and she is still currently contracted in the role of Management Accountant.

Through the years we have also outsourced work to her for the following projects:

1. uGoGo Online Classified Ads
2. uGoGo Business Consultants
3. uGoGo Business Club
4. uGoGo Bargains Storehouse

We have given separate reference for each project.

We believe we have saved a lot of time, money and labour hassles by outsourcing, and Caz has proved invaluable in her expertise, confidentiality, and professionalism. She has proved loyal, reliable, is progressive and shows lateral thinking in her character.

Her skills are many and diverse and not restricted to her title of Management Accountant. Unfortunately, due to my age I am planning to cease trading in a matter of months, at which time Caz’s contract will end.

You are welcome to correspond with me via email for any queries.

In September of the year 2000, Caz graciously responded to a request from the Board of Directors of the People Helping People Foundation, PHPF Inc., that she join us as an International Director, and a working Board member to help with our fund raising efforts.

Within three short months of her arrival, Caz's ingenious project management saw an unparalleled sales volume in excess of US$ 43,000 - a feat that was accomplished during a selling period of just five weeks! Within the next six months, Caz's sales team achieved sales in excess of $25,000 per month, over several months. These efforts have not been surpassed.

Since then, Caz has been unstinting in her contributions to the Foundation. She gives generously of her time, her expertise, her marketing and management skills.  She continues to be a valued International Director of PHPF, Inc.  In addition to marketing, during the past two years, she served on the Executive Committee of the Board and acted in the capacity of Corporate Secretary, with the responsibility to oversee all private Corporate Documents and Records.

Caz is a valued advisor to the Foundations President, always willing to consult and lend her objective commentary in critical and sensitive issues.  Currently - she has agreed once again to bring her expert marketing skills to bear during our upcoming Fund Raising campaigns.

This letter is offered in sincere appreciation for the invaluable and constant service that Caz has rendered to the Board of Directors of the People Helping People Foundation, PHPF, Inc. since the year 2000.  It is our fervent hope that she will continue to lend us her grace and her valued assistance for many  years to come.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Catherine D Macdonald,
President - PHPF, Inc.,
Montreal, Canada.
