Business first, software later

Business First Software Later

Here at JCM, it’s about you.

Our aim is to help you create the ultimate vision for your business and provide you with the right solutions and the best expertise available, to enable you to achieve it.

Our core team are a family of like minded, experienced and dedicated consultants, handpicked for one reason; we wanted to work with them. We know the value that comes from the people that you surround yourself with and pride ourselves on our strong network of trusted partners. With a background in senior and board level management, all our team have the business experience to challenge, focus and define the processes that will streamline your business.

With such an established team of people to draw from, we are not restricted by your business challenges, and neither is the software. Drawing from our bank of knowledge, we can provide you with relevant effective solutions, and hands-on specialist consultants to guide you along the way.

Each member of our team is a fully qualified, experienced consultant and as such will ensure that you are getting the best value from your overall investment. No middle man, just the solution.

Client referrals make up 60% of our business, a figure we’re very proud of. Our focus is on business first, software later. We get to know your business, what it is you want out of it and thrive on seeing you achieve your ultimate vision.

JCM Initiatives

At JCM, we’re firm believers in giving back and making a positive impact within our local community. We’ve dedicated 2 initiatives to help in our efforts to give back.

JCM Social Initiative

We’re delighted to partner with Audacious Foundation. A charitable organisation dedicated to helping those in need in and around Manchester, they focus on providing meals for children who would otherwise go hungry. 

If you work with us, you will be helping us help them. For every project we carry out, we donate £x to the Foundation to further thier food supply efforts. 

We also host ad hoc fundraising events. In 2019, our Marketing Director Elle raised a huge £1011 for the foundation through a 14.5mile sponsored walk to work. These valuable funds helped the foundation provide over 1000 meals for kids during the school holidays. Want to know more about the Audacious Foundation or how you can help them?
