Testimonials

Nice things people have said about me:

Jemma Pink: Director of Corporate Systems, Six Degrees Technology Group Ltd

I directly managed Alan for two years as my Head of Development at Six Degrees Group. We worked closely together on business critical transformation projects where Alan always delivered. Rated by his team as an exceptional manager, he was able to consistently inspire and lead them to deliver technical solutions to specification, within time and to budget constraints necessary.

He is a focused and driven individual with a genuine passion for his craft. Responsible for all aspects of the development lifecycle including solution & technical architecture, design, build, test & deployment. Alan is an extremely safe pair of hands with an ability to operate effectively at both a strategic level and immersed in the finest of detail.

Alan is an asset to any organisation and I recommend him unreservedly.

Rob Peddle, Director, The High Performance Organisation Group Ltd.

Alan was asked to create an online reporting tool to integrate our unique and completely redesigned online assessment tool, with the aim of significantly enhancing the way we reported from it.

Key requirements were high levels of flexibility, speed, security and availability. Based on outline report template specifications, Alan was instrumental in helping to develop these specifications designing, building and architecting a much faster more flexible reporting tool, with excellent knowledge of the whole hardware stack.

Alan responded rapidly to changes and further ideas throughout the process and was very efficient in the way he worked during the project. I would thoroughly recommend Alan for this type of work.

Tom Herbert: Six Degrees Technology Group Ltd

Alan is resourceful, hard-working and organised. He has led the team on several projects, giving sound direction on architecture and best practices in development and DevOps. He has been a pleasure to work with and for.

Maria Lomba: Six Degrees Technology Group Ltd

If you need somebody to get the best from the people or to find out quickly how to solve a problem using a computer he’s your man. Grows and gives room to grow. Able to switch his focus between the forest and the bushes as needed. Always humble, always learning, always experimenting.

Jake Withecombe: ruggednetworks.co.uk

Alan has been a pleasure to work. From the beginning he fully understood the project requirements and made many helpful suggestions as to how we could improve the system.The project was finished well ahead of schedule and under budget. On more than one occasion Alan worked late into the night – a clear indicator that he loves his work!

I look forward to working with Alan in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

Sylvain Reiter: symble.net

From the initial meeting, he showed great enthusiasm toward the project and has always the best interest of the product in mind.Alan is a highly experienced and talented developer with excellent communication skills and a highly professional approach to development.

When I look for a developer, I'm looking for someone who's highly intelligent, able to turn a hand to anything, and is not afraid to point out flaws or try to improve something. If you're looking for a robot, Alan is not your man. Alan is brilliant at spotting problems before they exist and pulling in his experience and putting it to work on your project. His work ethic and dedication is second to none. I'd recommend Alan to anyone.

Kevin Brennan: Protel UK LTD

Alan is an excellent programmer. He proved to quickly understand the business drivers and developed applications to meet our needs with little of the usual specification detail required by most developers. He's independent and takes a great deal of pride in his work as was evident by his continued strive to improve system performance. It was a pleasure to work with him.

Obi Ulasi: Protel UK LTD

Alan is a very amiable and was a pleasure to work with. He is an individual with a passion for software development, which enabled him to produce effective solutions in a timely manner.

Michael Ward : TidyDesign.com

Firstly I would like to say it has been a great pleasure working with Alan on a number of web based projects, I am delighted he called asking for this reference. I first met Alan whilst studying at the University of Portsmouth, he has always been very entrepreneurial and hardworking, looking to create his own unique brands and products. Like most students, after graduating (2005) we went our separate ways in life / business however we regularly kept in-touch, often chatting on MSN about all things web related. Alan first helped Tidy Design back in January 2009, when I sold our first hotel website / booking engine. Alan is the coder genius behind this bespoke system / database that has subsequently gathered interest from a global audience. http://hotelbookingreservationsystem.com/about-us.html I would recommend Alan Hollis to any web design / development company; he is a very gifted coder and would be an asset to your business. Alan is not only hardworking and an all round nice guy; he is someone I believe will succeed in all he sets out to do, it is this mentality accompanied with raw talent that allows him build stable and complex systems. So to conclude, if you have any questions about Alan or his work then please do not hesitate contacting me, my personal email address is mike@mjward.co.uk
