During this time Methys always displayed the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm with each project that they worked on. Right from the onset of each project, I worked closely with Methys, from project kick-off to implementation and I can honestly say that it was an absolute pleasure each step of the way. They have a real can-do attitude, are happy to flesh out specifications with the client and really get their hands dirty. The quality of the apps they built for us is world class and I will continue to work with them on all our future projects.
