Great product in Meridian, great service on the consulting front – real added value.

John Cormie, Group Property Director, Anglian Water Group

We receive great support from William Martin, which is undoubtedly down to the fantastic team we have on the account; our Account Director, Paul Coster, is skilled at providing great solutions and delivering to a very high standard.

Henrietta Frater -The Crown Estate

From our perspective, the Elogbooks & Meridian platform working together is a necessity in ensuring that the FM’s & Service partners can seamlessly approve and manage works and or actions from the H&S platform (Meridian) to the CAFM / Supply chain management tool (Elogbooks) without having to log into multiple platforms. This not only aids in better compliance but saves time on behalf of the FM’s” & other stakeholders.

Lee Murray, Head of Facilities Management, JLL

I’ve worked with William Martin now at both Capita and BNP Paribas Real Estate and have always been impressed with the willingness of the team to work flexibly to meet our clients’ requirements.  Add this to a great and user-friendly system and I feel we have a really strong partnership to support our compliance requirements.  Looking forward to seeing both our systems and relationship grow in the future.
