I have known and worked with Jon for many years on countless projects. We have a very solid working relationship and I regard him as a very good friend. It is without bias, however, that I would not hesitate recommending him to others. He is meticulous in his work, possibly due to a firm understanding of computers, physics and mathematics, from a very young age (I'm not sure they had calculators that far back!). With incredible patience he creates complex databases and manages to listen carefully to customers requirements, whilst still maintaining a light hearted approach to his business. Some would say "well you would say all that" seeing as how we work in partnership on a lot of projects and I would reply: I like his work, respect him and trust him. If I didn't, then I'd have found someone else to work with for the last 7 or more years!

We first called Compass Computing back in February 2004 when we were in massive trouble as at that time our whole computer system had gone down and the previous provider was unable to help. By the 1st of March Compass Computing had built us a brand new system far better than the one before. Over the recent years Compass has also written databases for my other companies and also designed websites for them. I have always been happy with the level of expertise, service and sensible good sound advice. I would highly recommend Compass Computing to any one in business.
Judith Stamper, Director, Drivewise (Keston) Ltd
Prior to meeting Jon we had a database which was little more than a list of our clients. Jon worked closely with our Office Manager to design a database exactly to our requirements. He is completely professional and a mine of information, to date he has never failed to provide us with the facility we require, as our needs can change and be more complex as our governing body(the Driving Standards Agency)request new information or statistics.We have found him to be swift to respond if we have a problem with the system, generally sorting out the problem the same day, and that is most important when it is the key part of our interface with the client. It's also good to work with someone who is warm and friendly, on the phone and can deal clearly with people who are unfamiliar with some aspects of IT. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing a new database, or support with an existing system.
Chanon deValois, photographer
Over a year ago I rebranded my Photography business and hired Compass Computing to redesign my website. In photography having a great website is a must, it is not just a shop window it is a showcase of the work I do. I knew exactly what I wanted and an idea of how I wanted things to work and look, Jon was able to understand and decipher my ideas from my descriptions and sketches and turn it into a reality. Jon was able to answer my endless barrage of questions about the workings of the Web and raising my profile on it as well as linking and using blogs. I was able to fine tune and change things until I was happy with the final product. This was all done quickly, professionally and exceptionally. Jon's customer service has been impeccable. I would highly recommend Compass Computing to anyone seeking to build or change a website.

Jon has been extremely helpful and professional from start to finish with building our website. He listened to us patiently, and took on board what we were trying to achieve by allowing our creative input. His great tips and ideas has produced a fantastic site that we are totally pleased with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Compass Computing
Pete Jarrett, Managing Director at Furlong Flooring (Wales) Ltd
Jon has created and managed a fantastic bespoke database for multiple companies within my group. It's not just 'here's your database' with Jon; he works with you to get the best results and the after sales service is the best I've had. Jon's database is absolutely integral to our daily life and far better than we first imagined.
Jessica Reid, Company Director at Owen Pine
Compass Computing have been building and designing our website for 10 years for our small local pine and oak furniture business. Jon is always quick to respond to any queries we have and I feel that we work well together in establishing the website as a good viewing platform for our customers. We like to try and keep the website personal and Jon understands this through taking the time to get to know our business and us. Jon has also designed a part of the website that allows myself to edit it with current events and opening times which has proved very helpful.
Jill Fenwick-walpole, School Manager at Greenwich University
Jon has helped up to develop databases which are improving the efficiency of the way we work, providing a high standard of student record/data required for professional bodies. Jon has been very professional, listened to what we felt we needed and translated this into very user friendly databases, work has been completed as agreed promptly and support has been offered when we have needed it. The standard is so high we are continuing to use Jon on other projects.
