Thank you for visiting my profile. I’d love to speak with you about your next big Microsoft Office app on desktop, tablet & mobile.
Bernard estimated in a very timely manner and in such a way that seemed very reasonable. He then stuck to his time line and delivered outstanding results. Furthermore he didn't just deliver and disappear. He stuck around and made sure that everything worked as it was supposed to and made himself available to for any follow-up. I would highly recommend Bernard especially regarding his Office add-in work. We are so pleased we are pursuing more projects with him.

Bernard is highly skilled in MS Office development and I would not hesitate to hire him again in future.
—Pieter van der Westhuizen, Technical Evangelist, Add-in Express
Bernard was wonderful to work with: he jumped in on the assignment with a tight deadline, and delivered quality results in far less than the allotted time. Great work, on time and under budget - a win all around!
