Services & Expertise

Each client has unique requirements, and I approach each challenge with an open-source attitude. This attitude allows us to choose the best-fit software solutions for each problem. In some cases a proprietary solution with the backing of rock solid development firms might make sense. In other cases Open Source software and the active community that supports its development is a better fit.
