Karen Ashworth Consulting Ltd provided this service by working directly with all parts of the company; creating an offering that has been very attractive to our customers.”

“There are four attributes which I require in any software project:
1. A clear understanding of the task to be automated;
2. Clarity of thought to implement the task;
3. A clear structure in the programming;
4. Documentation which makes the system fully accountable.
These are always evident in work delivered by Karen Ashworth Consulting Ltd and demonstrate total commitment to customer projects.”

“Of seven control systems projects managed by Karen Ashworth, all have been delivered on time and within budget. During all project stages (including specification, configuration, acceptance test and commissioning) the impact on our resources was minimal and the quality of the product was first class.
I have also been impressed by Karen’s strengths in gaining customer confidence and becoming “part of the team”. She is pro-active in establishing a detailed understanding of functional requirements and recognises the importance of developing strong working relationships at all levels. Coupled with continuity of management, this is a vital ingredient for the success of any project.”
