I have been really impressed with the “QX approach” towards client accounting services

Since contracting QX in summer 2010 I have been really impressed with the “QX approach” towards client accounting services. I believe they are special because they work to achieve the objectives of the client and as part of the UK team rather than just being a support or cost saver.

Our Management Reporting has come on a quantum leap since we engaged QX. I would personally like to thank our QX colleagues for their dedication and the quality of work which they have been able to deliver on-time and consistently. It's been a real pleasure working with QX.
