What do our Customers say about us?

I found the training to be hugely beneficial. The delivery was clear, concise, energetic and good humoured. Definitely a good skill based introduction to EndNote, while the notes given on the day will provide a most useful refresher of what was covered.

LS, Tullamore, Ireland

I have to thank you again for your help. The support level you have given gives me good confidence in using the product, knowing that there are solutions to problems that are not necessarily easy (or economic) for you to implement, but give the customer a working solution.

CW, Cheltenham, UK

Tutor was very knowledgeable and taught in a way that was easy to follow

KH, Uxbridge, UK

Adept are continuing to be the most reliable and effective of all the technical helpline staff that I encounter.
