StriveX has really gone above and beyond to help our business. I first contacted James at StriveX when I needed some specialist advice at short notice. He instantly made me feel at ease with his calm and positive approach. With confidence I gave James access to our online accounts and he responded within the hour giving brilliant advice. StriveX now handles all our accounting and tax affairs. He has also shown expert knowledge in other areas that will benefit the business. I really feel James has become an asset to the team. I cannot recommend StriveX highly enough! Their App is super useful too!read more

Twice James has saved my sanity. If, like me, you are converting to Quickbooks as part of MTD and struggling - then call James at striveX. He knows his stuff and explains the fixes in a way you can understand. He is professional, knowledgeable and great to work with.

We went to Cude as we wanted a fresh look to a very outdated charity website. Wesley at Cude could not have been more patient and helpful with us as whilst he only dealt with myself as the main contact, there were 6 other trustees all with opinions on how things should look and what content it should show. Wesley changed things numerous times so we could get the website just right and it never was a problem. The nature of our charity work is all around helping people with loved ones with a severe brain injury so it was very important to ensure it was clean looking , easily navigated and not intimidating. Cude delivered just that and we know that if we need anything Wesley is at the end of the phone to help and support us. We cant recommend them enough!read more

I cannot be any happier with Wesley and the Cude team. They have made it possible for me to get back to focussing on my project rather than be in constant fear of my technical shortcomings. I really do feel as if I’m in safe hands with a genuine partner. I’m looking forward to a long, productive and very stress free collaboration with Cude

Amazing service, friendly, fast and imaginative. A pleasure to work with and I feel very confident having my web details with them. Thanks Cude!

Wesley and his team migrated my website from one platform to the Cude platform and did it in a couple of days which I thought was great. It was about as efficient as it could be and the price was good. I will be using them to maintain my website and host it going forward. I am delighted with what they have done for me.
Thomas Kennedy Conner
Wesley at Cude Design was a pleasure to work with. As it was my first experience at setting up a website, he took me through the process step by step and was always happy to tweak the website as I discovered things that needed changing. i am very happy with the outcome and I think Cude offers good value for money.

I wanted to find local guys to help with my blog redesign and after several emails from Cude Design, who understood what I wanted, they set about the transformation. From start to finish they've been exceptionally patient and understanding with all my queries and questions. Fixed every problem without complaint and have done an amazing job. I have had so many compliments about the new design. And still now, after the project has been completed are they still helping me with bits here and there. I would highly recommend Cude Design and will be using them again.read more

"Fantastic partners for anyone starting a new business. James and the striveX team took us through the rapids of early company set up and tax obligations without a scratch - here complexity is made simple. If you're looking for a partner to get your business idea up and running when you don't have much time on your hands, look no further. James will keep you on track and the business admin engine churning while you keep focused on what you do best."

"James prepared the analysis of R&D qualifying expenses for several of our technology companies. The analysis involved a year of significant change for the companies, and James was able to pick up the process with limited assistance due to a change in resource availability. As an executive from the global headquarters of the parent company, I would be happy to invite James back for additional project work in the future."
