    I loved the way I was able use the products to the benefit of my clients. I first used MAUS products in the late 1990’s , I was impressed with it back then and I’m looking forward to discover the changes, which is why I am back using the products now. I can recommend this world leading product with a clear conscience.

    Over 4 days, a group of consultants took part in the intensive training to become Accredited Advisors. Each of us learnt more about the incredible depth within the MAUS Business System Software. This system is highly recommended to both business owners and those wanting to support them.

    I’ve only been working with the software since August 2015, in my capacity as a business exit consultant, but I am constantly amazed at the breadth of the software and the caring, cheerful support that I get from the client services team. I computerised my first business in 1982 and I think I’ve been disappointed with every piece of software that I’ve employed since that time; however, that has not been the case with MAUS, in fact they have exceeded my expectations.

    I have found that people are much more open to change when you can explain that we have a raft of technology-based products … MAUS provide an answer to every issue. I believe that aligning my business and methodology with MAUS has been a major leap for Future Focus Business Coaching.

    Being a small coaching business can have its drawbacks but being a MAUS Accredited Partner conveys a different perception. It’s a massive marketing boost!

    As you know I have been working as an Accountant advising SME’s for over 20 years. I have been searching for a program that brings everything together for us as Advisors to implement and execute with SME’s. [This program] does it for us.
