Personal info

Justin Beattie

Founder and sole director of Barland Services Ltd, incorporated in May 1999, specialising in Bookkeeping services.

Officially trained by Sage in the use of their software. Justin is married and has two daughters. He is a big fan of very loud rock music and has played guitar in various bands over the years.

He is a lifelong supporter of Watford F.C. and a the chairman of The Pulse Hospital Radio in Watford.


Data entry into Sage software products (I have been using various incarnations of Sage 50 from v.4 to the latest version) I am then able to design and extract reports from the system.

I am experienced in sourcing and project-managing automated stock-management “bolt-on” modules compatible with Sage. By working very closely with clients in helping to enter the individual stock records and testing the final product, supplier orders are managed electronically from the push of a button via a website integration.
