    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
