About David Hardstaff

I’m David Hardstaff, and this website is purely about Microsoft Excel, and spreadsheet and database technologies, because that’s one of the things that I do.

There is a lot more about all the other things that I do on my main website.

I specialise in consulting on operational, process and technical issues, and my operational background gives me the experience to generate powerful management information for businesses, digging deeper than the top level financial data that many operate with day-to-day.

Business Intelligence is a key tool for improving customer service, trimming waste, controlling costs and maintaining the margins that you need.  Once the Key Performance Indicators are in place, Excel is often the best tool for displaying and sharing the results – perhaps using dashboards or pivot tables, and allowing users the flexibility of defining the data they want to look at.

I work in a wide range of sectors: manufacturing processes, order fulfillment, e-commerce, back-office administration – anything, really, where data and/or processes are involved.

To avoid too much overload, if you want my background, check out LinkedIn (here).  You can also find Case Studies on my profile page there as well.

If you want to see what people have said about me, then it’s here on my Testimonials page on my main website.

How can we work together?

We can start by having a conversation, or a meeting.  There’s no charge, no obligation and absolutely no hard-sell.  I will not be ringing you up every couple of days chasing for business.

I will keep in touch periodically, or my children will eventually starve, but be assured that picking up the phone and talking to me will not initiate a stream of calls, letters and emails.

To find out more, or to have a chat without any obligation or hard-sell, please contact me here, or call 01438 832724.
