What our clients say

  • Office Odyssey is a family run business and one of the U.K.’s leading suppliers of Epson’s sustainable inkjet technology. We are a social enterprise, with at least 51% of profits going onto creating work for people with autism and other barriers to work.

    We found challenges in accessing public sector contracts, as some are flagged as not suitable for VCSEs and we were not entirely clear on what policies and procedures we needed to have in place to be successful in the tender process. The Go4Growth Tool is an excellent tool that helped guide us through the maze to ultimate success,. iIt’s well presented and contains lots of information and resources we now use to improve our tenders.
