Microguide was founded in 1987 from the Business Systems Consulting practice of Arthur Andersen & Co, a major international accountancy and consultancy firm, with a vision to provide relevant, professional and independent business systems advice to organisations regardless of size or business sector. 

We have worked with clients in a broad range of industry sectors helping deliver forward looking technology-driven business solutions. In the process, we have developed a depth of expertise and experience in most industries including manufacturing, distribution, retail, arts & leisure, the professions, property, construction, publishing and financial services.

Philosophy and Culture

Our philosophy and culture is founded on:

  • Genuine independence: we do not act as a dealer in hardware or software and do not undertake software development or provide product specific or other training.

  • Market knowledge: of relevant sources of packaged software to provide appropriate solutions to accounting, ERP and e-business requirements.

  • Proven approach: based on our own tried and tested methodology.

  • Professionalism: based on our "big firm" background, coupled with the flexibility possible in a smaller organisation.

  • Quality assurance: based on peer review.

  • Specialisation: in the small to medium sized systems marketplace.

  • Expertise: in identifying systems solutions for forward looking business requirements.


Independence is fundamental to everything we do.

We provide unbiased advice of the very highest quality to businesses of all sizes who are users or potential users of small to medium sized business systems. We have always offered completely impartial professional systems guidance focusing on solutions that match our clients' requirements at the right price and on the best contractual terms.


Building on best practice, we have evolved and continued to improve our proven approach with a set of knowledge resources that allow us to deliver excellence. Through their application we have developed a body of knowledge and assets that are reusable. This lets us move with much greater agility and speed to climb the learning curve when working with a new client.

When sourcing suppliers to meet client requirements we look for the right "gut feel" compatible with our clients' culture.


The practice is a Recognised Practice with the Institute of Business Consulting and approved consultant lists maintained by various Business Links throughout the UK. In addition all our consultants belong to relevant professional organisations including Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales, British Computer Society and Institute of Directors.
