Service Description

I am often involved in documenting niche products and so most applications are unfamiliar at the outset and need to be learned quickly and effectively. Articles are often written about unfamiliar subjects so that research has to be thorough in order to ensure accurancy of content.

I am used to working to deadlines and tight budgets and do deliver what is required and when it is required.

My method of working means that I am very flexible, can fit jobs in as needed and can adjust my workload to meet different priorities. This flexibility often involves evening and weekend work when a project requires it.

Previous experience as a Programmer, Analyst, Pre-Sales Analyst, Business Analyst.

The supplied service will be in accordance with the customer's requirements and will be set out in advance of starting.

Each contract will normally go through certain stages, such as:
- evaluation
- scoping
- outline and agreement of deliverables
- investigation and research
- resolution of questions
- preparation and delivery of initial version for review
- notification and incorporation of required changes
- supply and approval of final version.

These stages are not fixed but will be set out for each project, depending on requirements.
