What people say about me

I've had some happy clients.

We have worked with William Kennedy for over three years and he has been a significant catalyst in the growth of our company. His IT expertise across our whole site has been superb and has enabled us to remain one of the leading Irish sites for life insurance. We view William as our 12th man and a key member of the team and since he started with us , we have seen all our metrics from sales to KPI’s show a sustained improvement.

We have worked with William for over 3 years. Before that we had used marketing agencies to build the website. We found these websites difficult to manage, slow and impossible to update. William gave us effective control over our costs, the site and the speed. Another issue in the past for us was when errors arose we found it hard to have them easily identified and fixed. We now have full control over our evolving and ever growing website which is fast and flexible thanks to William’s personal attention.

Livecosts has worked with William for the past 2 years . He has successfully contributed significantly to the development of key areas of our application. Here at Livecosts we see William as one of the team, he has his deep knowledge of software while being very easy to work with. Recommend.
