Feedback from our clients reinforces our experience, knowledge and creative solutions that solve IT problems. Here are a few of their stories.

Lush Cosmetics

A growing cosmetic company, Lush Cosmetics, was seeking an IT provider to help roll out 200 stores nationwide. We turned around an RFQ in a few days with a realistic bid and promise to begin working as soon as the contract was signed.

We were able to show our quick turnaround times by demonstrating services on one store and working overnight so the company did not lose any business. Lush Cosmetics was so impressed with our responsiveness, level of expertise and attention to detail that they hired us to work on the other 199 stores.

1-800 Flowers

1-800 Flowers had Wi-Fi network issues for its sub-company, Fannie Mae, in 87 retail locations across the Midwest. The company contacted us asking if we could go to each location to fix the connectivity issues in 48 hours. With some creative project management, we were able to meet the deadline and fix each store’s Wi-Fi functionality.

Fannie Mae and 1-800 Flowers praised our team for being able to provide the same superior level of service in a short time frame. Today, the 1-800 Flowers family of companies turn to us for all technology needs throughout the country.

SICOM Systems, Inc.

The digital signage software company that specializes in the quick service restaurant industry had always used several different companies in the past to deliver technological solutions to its clients in the U.S. and Canada. We stepped in to provide e-learning capabilities to all SICOM locations and developed a full course training program for technicians to perform IT jobs ahead of time and with superior quality.

SICOM lauded our team for expertly handling adversity and quickly resolving issues throughout the process. SICOM continues to hand over various parts of the business to us as our partnership grows.
