A message from Mark Arkell

When I started my company in 2013, my website made me look bigger than I was. After being approached a few times where people had preconceived (and incorrect) notions about the size of my company, I took the site down. You see, there are a lot of companies with a list of skills and services that they provide, that in reality are just "a list of skills that they hope to provide someday". I've decided that I want to be as transparent as possible with my marketing, which is why I'm putting this statement directly up on my website. Over the years, I've worked with some amazing people and companies of all sizes and capabilities. If you're looking for one of those companies, I won't pretend to be one. What I can be is someone who looks at the big picture, and takes time to understand where the gaps in your "Automation System" are. My promise/commitment to you is, if I don't have the resources or skills to get a job done right, I will always bring in or refer you to the people who can.
