At Solve we work extremely hard to satisfy every need of every one of our clients and do not expect a mention of thanks.

However, on occasion clients are kind enough to share feedback on our working relationship, and we do appreciate it.


  • I invested in a company (Furniture Solutions NZ Ltd.) 5 years ago and with that became the Managing Director with no previous business experience. Scary stuff!!! However over this time we've used several tools that have helped us develop the company into the success that it is today. One of the most valuable tools we've utilised has been the budgeting process. This has enabled us to track month by month the various areas of the business and thus identify those areas that have required more attention than others. We have been able to see where financially the company has come from, identify monthly trends and set targets for the future based on this historical data. I am able to predict very accurately sales trends based on this historical data - this has basically removed any guesswork and we know what to expect on a monthly/annual basis. Quite simply having Andrew Johnstone on board helping me understand the budget process has been invaluable for me in the MD role. There are very few surprises and with his help and guidance, we have been able to create a sound, secure business with a very positive outlook.
