Their team supports us from a development or QA capacity using .NET, C#, F#, and our Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.Specifically, their developers are instrumental in helping us build out point of sales integrations for client’s third-party systems. They work with our US-based managers and developers to scope out the specific requirements for any given integration.”
