Consulting and business advice in Nottingham and east midlands from Dakin & Co.

Consultancy and Systems Advice

Making Support, Systems and IT Work For You.

It wasn’t so long ago that we were working on PCs with towers and large monitors which took up half your desk and floor space.

Today, flat screens have made desk-top life more convenient, while laptops, tablets, mobile phones and super-fast wi-fi make it easy to work from just about anywhere.

It’s incredible to think that when astronaut Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon, the technology that made that possible was far less intelligent than that used to power a smartphone today.

In a few years, we have gone from book ledgers to Excel to dedicated software, which HMRC has now made mandatory for anyone uploading tax and related information online. The downside is that when the wi-fi drops, everything stops.

Which is why Dakin & Co provides you with a range of specialist Consulting Services and IT advice, that’s designed to streamline your business activities.

Information Technology

With knowledge gained from developing our own office systems and those designed for our clients, we can bring stacks of experience in software and systems to make your life easier.

HMRC has now introduced Real Time information (RTI), which we can help you to install and run, as well as training you to ensure that you maximise your capability in:

  • Software specification
  • System installation and training
  • Payroll systems and management
  • Management accounting and reports
  • Sage, Xero, QuickBooks
  • And lots more

Management Consultancy

Our management consultancy services are real. It’s not a visit from a consultant who listens to your history and problems, goes away, then leaves you with a list of things to do – and a large bill.

Dakin & Co works with you to ensure you have a partner to turn to when needed. We help you to take full control of your credit management, stock control, budgeting and financial reporting systems, so if your gross profit, cost control or stock valuations become an issue, we’re just a phone call or an email away.

Real-time consultancy and systems advice will also help you to take advantage of opportunities and to avoid unnecessary problems, before they occur.

Busy Fools or Business Efficiency?

Many business owners find that they spend – or waste - time typing invoices, chasing debts and writing up books. With our help you’ll free the time you need to be more productive, to deal with the more important tasks of growing the business, and to save time and money.

Whether you’re planning to invest in new technology or want to improve your existing systems, we can give you practical and cost-efficient help. For a rocket-powered shot in the arm, please email
