  SOS have provided me a fully functional application that caters for my needs exactly. Having provided a small number of working samples, SOS meticulously created a computerised solution for my company, which had previously required very mundane manual entry. The complexity of this software was always a major factor for me, and whilst it remains in testing, it is clear that this solution will in turn lead to an increase in productivity of no less than 35%. Moreover, SOS have completed this application with the absolute minimum of correspondence, and requests for further information that require clarification. If you want software creating to your needs in a timely and professional manner then don&'t hesitate in choosing SOS.
