How Rob Works
Robert enjoys finding out about how different organisations operate and working with different people to help them solve their problems and improve working practices.
Knowledge sharing is also something high on Robert’s agenda; helping his peers to use software to gain insight from their data to understand their business better.
Robert’s approach is always to listen first and make sure he understands each business situation, the problem and what his customer wants to achieve. He likes to look for simple solutions that are reliable, future-proof and can be owned and maintained by the customer going forward.
