ALM Financial Solutions Ltd

ABOUT


Simon Garrett - Director 

As the former Head of implementation at ALMIS International, and now an accredited partner for ALMIS I support both new and existing ALMIS clients in maximising the benefits of the ALMIS software suite.


New clients receive support offering end to end implementation of the ALMIS software leveraging the ALMIS Implementation Methodology (AIM).  Depending on individual needs I can lead, support or manage any or all aspects of the implementation process. Working closely with the ALMIS International team ensures a coherent implementation outcome, successful on target and on budget.


Existing ALMIS clients receive bespoke support to maximise the benefits of the ALMIS software and associated modules. From initial data extraction to internal and external reporting, we can make appropriate recommendations. We can then offer the support required to implement the changes, document, and deliver training that will ensure delivering the optimal end to end process.


I can also offer packaged and tailored training on all of the ALMIS products.
