"Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies."

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

I would not hesitate to recommend Helia and Darvin for any scale of IT related projects. If he takes a project on he will not only do it but do it very well!"
