  • John Jones and his team have been absolutely fantastic in helping us achieve our objectives and we are extremely pleased with their high standard work and the assistance they provided. We thoroughly recommend Applicable to other NZSA members.

    Josette Haggren, EAP Executive

  • Our experience with Applicable has been fantastic. This is our 4th website rebuild in 10 years and the Applicable team made the whole process the easiest one by far. From project scoping to actual implementation I felt we were in capable, experienced and interested hands. John was fantastic at offering advice and suggesting improvements. His ability to speak in plain english instead of techy speak was incredibly helpful. Our project team, Arthur and Elan, were very proficient and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend the Applicable team to anyone.

  • Your assistance has been greatly appreciated by myself and our National Commission. Your report was detailed, well researched and also easy for us laypeople to understand.

  • Just wanted to say that it was so quick and easy to update the website with new content this morning; such a change from the usual process which took a long time, involved a small amount of swearing and usually ended in a phone call to ask for help.

    Joanne Hall, Senior Brand Manager, Wendy's Hamburgers

  • I've gotta say; working thru v2.3 on Truck 47's tablet I'm impressed. Looks good, flows smoothly and issues from v1 addressed. Thank you, your team has done a great job; I can’t say how much I appreciate your approach to software development.

    Paul Holdom, Gleeson & Cox

  • John and Applicable went the extra mile to deliver the solution required. The online platform is up and running and robust. Good user feedback. Changes and updates are effected quickly and on budget.

    John Page, Senior Advisor, Business Improvement - Sport New Zealand

  • Working with John and the team at Applicable is a real pleasure. He listens to what you want, takes time to digest the brief, comes back with his own ideas and then scopes the work. He is great at sticking to timelines and budget and nothing ever seems like too much trouble. I highly recommend him.
