A PAST PROJECT THAT STEVE IS PROUD OF

“I am most proud of being asked for assistance by a mid-size company whose computer network was causing daily failures in its line of business applications. In partnering with the company, I first began learning more about the business. Next, I designed and implemented a reliable solution that successfully transformed its information technology systems into a productive user application, free of system failures. That business now benefits from a real competitive edge and is thriving, thanks to the updated system being utilized by its employees.”
