  • Travel expenses 
  • Gifts and hospitality record 
  • Employee sickness 
  • Purchase Order request 
  • Delegated decisions 
  • And many more… 


“We love working with SR1 Development! The service we receive from Steve and the team is exceptional. We have a fantastic working relationship which is built on trust and the knowledge we know Steve and the team will deliver an excellent product every time. Steve has a wealth of knowledge in SharePoint and Microsoft and is extremely adept at communicating it in a simple way to us ‘non-tech’ folks! He always reacts positively and with a great solution to any request we put his way. Steve and the team are always on hand to support with any query big or small and always replies promptly.  

The work SR1 have carried out for LEP has been transformational for our team. We now have online systems which work seamlessly compared to paper or Word and Excel based systems we used previously. The intranet has become a central information point for the team where they can easily access information they need. Almost every member of our organisation has expressed how much the intranet has improved their way of working, in particular our managers. Our new starters have also commented on how well it is designed and it’s functionality compared with other organisations they’d worked in. We are continuing to add new sections and build forms with SR1 guiding us on what is possible.”
