Over past 8 years I have utlized Reliance on multiple projects requiring the automation of invoice processing . They have been timely, responsive and overall we have been very satisfied with them.  
Greg B (Director, Verizon Business)    

I have engaged Reliance IT to provide training development and project management services on numerous projects in Sun. Reliance IT have always provided resources with the right skill sets who have worked well with the rest of the department to produce quality products, on time  
Peter F (Director, Sun Microsystems)    

I have worked with Sim off and on for over 14 years. He is one of the original makers of magic. I say this because I have watched him repeatedly conjure resources to get impossible projects successfully finished when almost any one else would fail. Remarkably, when the impossible task is completed, all the people that worked with him are ready to go again. If he says it can be done then it can. If he says he will do it then its done. He's a calm hand in the the most tumultuous storm. I count myself fortunate to have gotten to work with him  
J D Hicks, President, Imagine Solutions    

Sim combines a unique balance of business acumen and technical knowledge to identify issues, recommend and implement solutions. He is very personable, confident and reliable. His integrity is unquestionable.”
