“We have engaged IBT on a number of occasions since 1999 and have been consistently impressed with their quality of work. They have delivered components of work that have varied in scale from large systems upgrades over several months to specific customizations covering only a few weeks. IBT are able to quickly identify our pain points and design, and implement affordable workable solutions that provide genuine business value. I consider IBT to be one of the best-option vendors in the Systems Integration space and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
