Paradigm's technical helpdesk is incredible. Being fairly novice at first, I found the team were able to explain the more complex aspects of my queries in a way I was able to understand. Nothing is too much trouble even if you don’t at first understand the solution. Everyone is really patient.

Paul BassonDirector, Knight James Associates Ltd
I have used the Paradigm Technical Helpdesk frequently over the years and been delighted with the willingness to help and the speed of response. They have helped me with compliance queries such as RegData/Gabriel completion, technical details regarding taxation of products and been a sounding board for queries regarding client specific cases that are slightly out of the normal. A very useful resource to have.
