In September 2015, Fireworks Websites got the opportunity to work with a great new Brisbane based start-up, Equipment Finance Solutions. What started out as a fast turn-around project has turned into a great business relationship with Samuel McCarthy and the Dirigo Group.

A bit about Equipment Finance Solutions:

Equipment Finance Solutions is a Brisbane based company which allows equipment vendors to take price out of their sales conversations. Using our easy online application portal, salespeople can deliver instant quotes and fast applications for operating lease / rental finance to their customers, breaking down the high upfront cost of equipment into manageable monthly payments.


A bit about Samuel McCarthy:

Sam is a Bachelor of Business QUT graduate, currently the managing Director at Dirigo Group, and Equipment Finance Solutions. He’s previously worked for Vuly Trampolines, Australian Special Metals, Jetts Fitness and Westpac, all in Finance roles.


What was the project that needed to be completed?

Sam: In September 2015, we were on the hunt for a web development firm to custom-build a piece of browser-based software for our new venture, Equipment Finance Solutions.

Why did you choose Fireworks Websites?

Sam: We’d been badly let down by our previous developer, and faced a situation where we were a mere 7 business days away from missing a crucial deadline to have the prototype software ready to show to our initial partners. In desperation I called a friend of mine who was in the industry, asking if he could recommend a firm who was skilled enough to complete the job in the short timeframe we had left. He recommended Fireworks, and so the next day I spoke to Geoff McRoberts to explain the situation.

What made Fireworks stand out?

Sam: From the word go, I could tell this company was the real deal. Geoff took the time to carefully understand where we were at, what needed to be done and where he could review the existing code, and then set aside time the next business day to meet face-to-face. At our meeting his demeanour was calm, professional and helpful, and he immediately set our mind at ease. He set out a clear plan of action, and whilst acknowledging that the timeframe was short promised to do everything within their power to get it done.

And the results?

Sam: Needless to say, the project was completed within the timeframe. Geoff kept us updated every step of the way, and came in on budget, despite he and his staff working overtime to get it done. The end result was brilliant and we’ve continued to maintain a great working relationship with Fireworks as our software has evolved and improved. I would happily recommend the Fireworks team to anyone who needs complex web development work done professionally and cost-effectively.
