SecureData Group, Gina Burman"Taurus prepared case studies of the highest standard for SecureData Group. Their work really stands apart from anything we've previously commissioned. The Taurus team are efficient in keeping you up to date with their progress, maintaining almost constant contact. Taurus’ ability to gain customer buy in was outstanding. Our customers were truly excited by the prospect of having case studies prepared; they felt like stars! Taurus made our customers appreciate that it was a win–win situation and the testimonials Taurus extracted were so impressive they couldn’t have been better if we'd paid our clients to say it! The standard of the writing was excellent, with one of the case studies being placed in The Australian IT Section as the lead case study. You can’t say better than that!"
Aussiepay, Managing Director, Dean Morelli“Taurus created the campaign – we got coverage in the Australian, The Australian Financial Review, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Computerwood, Human Resources, CEO onlne and I’m Boss TV. Through Taurus, I instantly became the Financial Review’s WorkChoices payroll expert and commentator! What is so refreshing about Taurus compared with other agencies I’ve dealt with is nothing they do is ever less than professional.”
