In this short interview, Marcus Dempsey, Managing Director of TeraByte IT Limited tells us why he likes using our cloud-based Sage One Accounts and Payroll software.
1. Hi Marcus, can you please give me a brief summary of who you are, the name of your business and what you do?
I’m an IT security consultant who specialises in penetration testing for companies to ensure they are kept secure. I have been in IT for well over 24 years and have been concentrating in IT security for the last few years.
There are currently 2 people in our business (husband and wife), is business stays good we’ll be looking at expanding hopefully towards the end of the year.
3. How long have you been using Sage One Accounts and Payroll? What were you using beforehand? Why did you change?
I’ve been using Sage One Accounts and Sage One Payroll since we first started up, this is just over 2 years now. We were using Excel before moving and this was just too time consuming to continue and therefore moved to Sage.
4. What do you like best about Sage One?
The ease of use, requires to training to use the project, simply dive in and get started.
5. What advice would you give to someone starting out in business / following in your footsteps?
Make sure you plan your industry, have a full detailed business plan and enough money to keep you going for at least 6 months, as the first few months are the hardest. Try and get known early on, if possible before you start up, get contacts as soon as possible.
