Liquid & The Energy Workshop’¦

They began using Liquid Accounts in 2010 after hearing that the cloud accounting market-leader, was based close to them in Huddersfield.

Previously they had used an accounting database: ‘We weren’t really satisfied with our current system as we found it unreliable, we wanted to take better control of our accounts and get them more organised and easy to manage.’

As The Energy Workshop was a fast-growing business, Jake was looking for something that would grow with them.  Liquid’s modular, pay as you go structure made it an easy choice to make:

‘Having Liquid is such a benefit as all our accounting information is in one place, it’s so easy to query it and everything is in our control.  As a green company we also like that it is more environmentally friendly; being in the cloud means we don’t need to print excessive amounts of paper.

Help is always there if we need it and Liquid’s support is brilliant, if we ever have any issues they are always dealt with quickly.’

They’ve also recently employed a part-time bookkeeper who will be managing their accounts on Liquid, and who has attended a Liquid training course.

‘After using Liquid I’ve fallen in love with cloud, I think that Liquid is great for growing SMEs as it is scalable and it is adaptable, I wish it all the success in the future!’
