Portsmouth University senior lecturer Dr Sercan Ozcan said: ‘The students have worked on a number of projects as part of their business consultancy studies.

‘However, this opportunity gave them a chance to work on a ‘real case scenario.’

Marc Smith, founder of SolvedFM, who are based in Gosport, added: ‘I would highly recommend the team at Portsmouth University.

‘I would also certainly use this process for future product or service research to assist with planning and development.
