“Our first experience using RTA has been a resounding success. The development proceeded smoothly and the delivered product meets all specifications. RTA kept us well informed throughout the course of the project, applying good project tracking and development/testing status reporting tools. If an unexpected issue arose, they solved it quickly or advised us accurately as to when to expect a solution. RTA also provided training to our in-house maintenance department and to our customer support center as the development completed. Overall, a great team to work with!”
