See what our customers say about our award winning projects:

“Working with Edson Consulting has been a pleasure. They managed the delivery of our CRM Programme from beginning to end. I would recommend them for the most critical of business change projects. With Edson in control we have been able to improve the return from our Loyalty Scheme, successfully replacing both our Analytical Data Warehouse and our Loyalty Scheme operational system. The new solutions were delivered on time and without any of the dramas usually associated with large system replacement projects. This was one of the best managed business and IT projects I have ever seen. I look forward to working with them again and would thoroughly recommend them for this type of project.”
