Since we have started working with Josh at Sidekick Cloud, he has shown us how to start using our Xero and WorkflowMax to their full potential. We are getting a much better picture of how our business is functioning and are identifying areas where we know we can improve our systems. He is so easy to work with and is very responsive to any questions or requests. We look forward to continuing our work relationship with Josh in 2021.

Having the support and guidance of our ‘Workflow Max and Xero Guru’, Josh Wilson, is such a relief.  Josh is able to easily analyse a problem and come up with just the perfect solution. Because we find that Workflow max is so flexible there can be many ways to do something and Josh seems to be able to find just the perfect one to solve our problem.  This has meant the information Workflow Max can supply is so much more meaningful because we have been given a bespoke solution.  Also because we are flat-out doing the doing of running small business being able to outsource help means we can be up and running so quickly having found our solution.  I’m sure our accountants love this too as any mistakes can be rectified quickly with the help of Josh meaning end of year runs a whole lot more smoothly.

I just had the pleasure of dealing with Josh from Sidekick Cloud. I needed some help with Vend/Xero and it took me quite a while to find someone who’s knows their stuff. Josh is definitely that guy. Very knowledgeable, very calm and easy to talk to, great teacher and showed me how to deal with the issues myself moving forward. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone who uses Vend or Xero and especially those that use both! 5 star, 100% Awesome! I’m extremely happy with his services.

It was a pleasure to work with Sidekick Cloud who assisted our company in finding a solution to a system issue we had.  Josh was very easy to deal with, understood our frustrations and after giving a rough idea of what we envisaged, he used his knowledge and contacts to organise a reliable custom build which ticked all our boxes. I would have wasted hours researching this project but Josh was able to do this on our behalf so I could continue doing what I do best instead.
