Spotlight on Roger

Roger, or Rog as he is also known, has been a part of CIM since January 2006.  He began his career at CIM on the Support desk, then switched to the Consultancy Team, and eventually returned to the Support Desk.  Roger is very knowledgeable about all products, and he excels at report writing.  He is also the world’s 🌍 leading authority on the legacy Swan Manufacturing Product.  Outside of work, Roger has another skill, which is dog whispering; he has two canine buddies, one of which is a rescue and currently draws heavily on his dog whispering skills. 🐶🐶

We hope these guides/articles will be of assistance, however, if you wish to discuss these further, please contact the support team by clicking the button at the bottom of this newsletter.

With Financial Year End fast approaching, did you know that the CIM Support Desk can assist with a back-up of your live data and create a new company (if required) free of charge? 

If you would like to take advantage of this, all we ask is that we are given a minimum of two working days’ notice to schedule it in. 

Please note this only applies to one data set, multiple data sets would be chargeable and have a longer lead time.
