  • Nicole Elvy

    Nicole Elvy

    Director

    Nicole has worked alongside many Accountants and Christchurch/Canterbury businesses since 2006 installing and implementing systems such as MYOB and more recently Cloud based systems such as Xero, Workflow Max and Unleashed Software.

    With qualifications in Accounting and Adult Teaching, Nicole has a good understanding of the core elements required not only to implement a system but also to be able to deliver in a manner that you can relate to. This implementation can start from the sales process right through to end of year accounts.

    Nicole's experience across a broad spectrum of industries has provided her with valuable problem solving skills and the ability to adapt programs to suit the needs of the client.

    It's not all work and no play. Nicole loves spending time with her hubby Nick and children Tobey and Emi-Lee and on the odd occasion she will sneak away on a bike race.
