"Our experience with Lutz has always been positive, professional, and timely. The consulting advice has been beneficial to our organization".
The quality of people in the IT world that would just work as your employee is limited in these rural areas. Five Nines fills that gap for us. I really feel like this collaboration is a real partnership. This is long term, we look at the big picture rather than those little pieces.
UNANIMOUS understands strategy. When it was time to address our outdated mission and vision we wanted a firm to facilitate our process for updating it. They understood the connection between branding and strategy. Their facilitation included robust imput from senior leaders as well as community leaders, staff and patients. It felt like they understood exactly what we were needing and how to help us get it done.

Paymerang has been great to work with. We upload our payments once a week and send a wire to cover them and Paymerang takes care of the rest. Several of our vendors have switched over to ACH payment or Credit Card payment and are receiving their payments much quicker, which they like. Our client rep keeps in contact with us to make sure everything is going well, so they are very hands on. We couldn’t ask for better service.
