Spent most of my working life as an accountant/Finance Director and always realised that good computer systems were vital in providing information and efficiency. In 2002 set up a company to provide useful data and calculations via the internet. This is much more satisfying because the hard work in gathering data and testing calculations can be shared with everyone online.
Carmen Data will soon be ten years old. Sites like www.comcar.co.uk are funded by advertising and the same tools and data are provided via rebranded sites to car manufacturers, dealers and finance companies. We are a website development company, and are always looking to develop something unique. In the meantime we just use commonly available software.
None. We do the technical stuff in-house and provide it to a range of media agencies, car manufacturer websites etc.
I set up Carmen Data ltd, an online publisher of car data and associated tools in 2002. Based in Bristol, and about to grow the team to 6. At the moment we are focused on steady organic growth, but very open to collaboration.
