Run your business with heart

1 Hour a Day Ltd was established in 2020, forged from 40+ years of experience in Business Management, Administration, Customer Service and Web Design.

Every business needs processes in place and we are experts in advising on the best options for your business and then setting them up for you.

We adopted cloud based software and services and worked remotely following the Christchurch Earthquakes back in 2010 and have continued to utilise these skills to date. 

We use these technologies, but it doesn't mean that you have to. We aim to keep it simple so that every member of your team is comfortable with changes.

Any small business that invests in 1 Hour a Day Ltd, will be looked after efficiently and from the heart.
