How was your experience with powernet?

Powernet scoped, implemented and now supports the new technology solution for Acceptance Finance.

Its been a seamless transition, which means that employees didn’t feel any change, which has resulted in no drop in productivity or additional training time required.

It make our life much easier knowing all staff are using current versions of the Office suite, so everyone is using the most effective product for their needs. Also setting up new PC’s is a much simpler and cost effective process.

The Microsoft 365 admin suite has also made it easier to manage access to email inboxes for the entire team when we have staff on leave etc which was somewhat painful previously.’ says Cornish.
