We started working with Haleys in 2009 and …we’ve now completely outsourced our finance department and we’ve never been in such control of the finances. I cannot underestimate the peace of mind I now have knowing exactly where we are! Haleys have just implemented project management software intergrating with our cloud based accounts.
