About the author

Nathan Carter, Quotient

Quotient Co-Founders Dale Vink and Nathan Carter, both aged 36 (at the time of printing issue 01), have been in the web industry since before dial-up internet was a “thing”. They started out with their web design studio (Black Sheep) back in 2003, which exposed them to the need for decent systems amongst small teams, just like theirs. So a few years ago they set about building ‘the best quoting system in the world’. They’re on a neverending quest for perfection and fuss over the tiniest of details, yet they do what they do because they love nothing more than hearing about how much Quotient is helping people in their businesses every day
