Client Feedback

We work with some great teams who also have shared a few kind words about us.

The team at Austin Consultants are invaluable in terms of both flexibility and the quality of support they provide. Being able to outsource reliable knowledgeable expertise when we require extra resource is a cost-effective way to ensure we meet our deadlines

Jim Curtis Senior

Operations Manager, Safran Electrical & Power

The EVolution Test Cell Control and Data Acquisition System was integrated with the existing test cell infrastructure and equipment to maximise existing resource utilisation and return on investment whilst at the same time incorporating the latest test cell features and requirements. The Austin Consultants team have been invaluable in integrating the new high-speed deterministic system into our test cell, efficiently and effectively managing all the complex integration issues and our specific needs. The state-of-art multi-axis e-machine test capability is a unique asset for our research activities and industrial collaborators.

Dr Juliette Soulard

Associate Professor Electric Machines, WMG, University of Warwick

Austin Consultants successfully designed and delivered a high-speed deterministic transmission test cell that not only fulfils the increased technical demands but is also adaptable to accommodate future requirements and flexible enough to generate a commercial return through the ability to offer services to third-party organisations. Their professional and considered expertise was able to add value to the project from day one and allowed us to achieve all the goals for this system. I will value their contribution on future projects.

Matthew Ward

Senior Instrumentation Engineer, Caterpillar UK

Austin Consultants facilitated a review with the various stakeholders to understand not only the requirements for the system but also the data dependencies of the wider team. Thanks to their professional approach to design and build the system not only addresses our requirements for reliable and consistent test monitoring across a large number and range of tests, over long time periods but also provides an adaptable and extendable platform that can easily accommodate new and changing demands

The team at Austin Consultants have delivered a great visitor experience that enhances the public’s understanding of elephants. From the initial consultancy through to the display’s installation the Austin team were very creative and proactive, working with us to meet all our requirements within the tight timescale and budget.

Natalie Latham

Interpretation Developer, Zoological Society of London

Our initial contact with Austin Consultants was made at the recommendation of representatives of National Instruments; a world leading test, measurement & control company. We were able to discuss an initial scope of work by telephone conferencing and subsequent conversations enabled a clear definition of the project which was to be developed with a range of options tailored to the limitations of our budget and timescales. I was totally satisfied with the outcome and I continue to consider Austin Consultants as a provider of solutions within this area of expertise.

Ian Cakebread

Facilities Manager, University of Greenwich

The team at Austin Consultants have created a new data acquisition system for the UCL towing tank using NI hardware. We are very pleased with the work that they have done from start to finish. They have been available to help us on matters which worked alongside the data acquisition system and were a fundamental pediment in ensuring that our complete set up worked to our expectations. The communication with the company was always good and up to date making this project a pleasure to work on.  We look forward to working with Austin consultants again to continue improving our systems.

Andrea Grech La Rosa

Austin Consultants have been a great partner to work with commissioning multiple lab data acquisition systems and continuing to provide support to our expanding facility. Their dedication, professionalism and all-round attitude could not be better, with special thanks to Chris Thoroughgood and Matt Collett for all their efforts.

Simon Holyoake

Research Electronics Engineer, British Geological Survey

I approached Austin Consultants to quote for a large piece of development work on a complex and not yet fully specified project. From start to finish, the whole team gave realistic advice and real-world estimates. We at the university now have a solid working relationship with Austin, and I personally would recommend them to anyone.

Austin stuck with the project through difficult times, communicating clearly throughout. This let us assess what needed to be done, and when.The project was completed to our satisfaction, and it is very likely that we will engage their services again on other projects in the near future. It was a pleasure to work with professionals like the team from Austin.

Mark Judge

University of Sheffield

Austin developed code which is necessary for running essential equipment within a month from start of project to end, and a month before the deadline. I will return to Austin when I need LabVIEW developing in the future.

Dr Simon Hunt

Post doctorate Fellow, University College London

I would like to thank Austin Consultants for an outstanding service and quick delivery of a consultant on site. I was extremely satisfied with Neil Pate’s services, who devised a LabView Hydrostatic Test program, including pressure cycling within two days. He was very professional and delivered the project to my utmost satisfaction. I will keep Austin Consultants in mind for any future projects.

Oliver Buhlinger

It has been an absolute pleasure working with them and would highly recommend their services. Special thanks to David Catto, one of the most knowledgeable and proactive engineers I have worked with.

Matt Dechamps

Director, Frequencia Ltd

Austin Consultants provided excellent support for my test rig software/hardware problems and upgrades, with special thanks to Chris Thoroughgood.

Lisa Jones

Test & Development Engineer, VTL Precision

Austin Consultants were able to provide a great kickstart to our Veristand project. As we were new to the software they provided onsite support to help overcome installation issues and integrate our target platform much quicker than we could have achieved using NI/Mathworks tech support. I consider it a great investment.
Very professional and a pleasure to work with they are keen to remain engaged in progress and seem to genuinely care that we succeed.
