We have found Sean Dickens from Bart Consulting to be a valuable addition to our business. He provides a personalised and flexible service that means we get exactly what we need from each consultation when we need it. No over-servicing, we just make appointments as required. He is very personable and his knowledge of MYOB is impressive. Sean has a great capacity building approach. You acquire knowledge by doing rather than watching, but equally, he will lead if that is what you prefer.
We would highly recommend Bart Consulting to any business who wants a smarter and faster MYOB solution.
Bart Consulting and Sean Dickens have acted as our consultants for the MYOB operating system since our company commenced business in January 2011. Sean was involved from the original specification, right through to implementation and ongoing support. Our business has multiple locations around Australia, and imports and exports products.
Throughout this period, Sean was not only able to ensure MYOB met all our operating requirements but was flexible during the busy set-up stages of our business and extremely responsive to any requirements, questions or thoughts we had.
Since our business inception, Sean has ensured the integrity, accuracy and completeness of our transactional input through quality training and setup, monthly completion of all bank and clearing account reconciliations and datafile reviews, and timely support to troubleshoot and resolve issues identified. This has ensured that all head office and statutory compliance commitments and reports have been accurate and on time.
Sean has demonstrated specialised knowledge of MYOB, and broad practical insight having implemented and used MYOB across a wide range of businesses in the past. As such he was able to provide ongoing efficiency improvement ideas to minimise our ongoing external support requirements (eg accounting services).
Of the myriad of contractors and resources we utilised during this period, Sean would be one of the top, if not the number one provider to us in terms of service and quality of solution provided. I do not say this lightly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean for any business looking to utilise MYOB as its business solution. I am happy to be contacted should you require additional information

Rynehart Electrical Services
Sean Dickens from Bart Consulting recently did some work on our MYOB system to improve its functionality in our business. Before Sean visited us we only used MYOB for basic accounting functions and couldn’t lay our hands on useful information about the profitability of different parts of our business.
Sean has put systems in place that now allow us to test and measure a range of aspects of our business. This has made the day to day operations more streamlined and has also allowed us to use MYOB to gather invaluable statistics about the inner workings of our business. This helps us plan for the future and direct the growth of our business in an informed and empowered manner.
I would highly recommend services like this to anyone in business who is looking for more streamlined processes, greater control and more meaningful reportability.

While in the later stages in the setup of our online maternity retailing store, we found that there were large gaps in our procedural structures with regards to the website store and MYOB integration. The disappointment of our initial service providers not being able to offer a solution to this issue was building to the point of uncontrollable frustration. We had products being made, the website was about to launch and we needed a solution FAST!!!! Enter Sean Dickens and Bart Consulting.
As a small start up business on a tight budget, we knew what we were looking for; a cost effective solution to the full integration between our accounting systems and our online store; someone who could talk our language yet have the commercial acumen and experience to problem solve with our IT providers. From my initial visit to Bart Consulting’s website and my 1st conversation with Sean I knew he was our answer.
Sean worked with our busy schedule, making his appointments at our office for after hours every week. He took the time to ask the right questions and from the start had a clear understanding of our needs and business goals. Sean is always contactable, extremely prompt in his replies and leaves no stone unturned in working with our suppliers to gain the best outcome for us and our business. We now have the streamlined, seamless MYOB integration that a business in our competitive environment needs to succeed, for which we have Sean to thank.
We will continue to utilise the services of Sean and Bart Consulting and would recommend anyone in any business, who is looking for a ‘whole approach’ to their MYOB system, to do the same.
Our business has used the services of Bart Consulting for many years and have no hesitation in recommending the services of Sean Dickens.
