Our Clients

 

Testimonials

Strangeloop worked with SoftSource during the implementation of one of our key technologies. Their staff exhibited a high degree of skill and professionalism in understanding what we wanted to do, and delivered what was required on time. It was a pleasure to work with SoftSource.

Strangeloop Networks

VP Software Development

I feel confident that SoftSource only hires top-notch talent, I cannot think of any area of improvement.

WebTrends

I believe the SoftSource team has cut weeks off our product development time and saved us from going down several wrong paths. I would highly recommend SoftSource to any software development team.

Tektronix

SoftSource listened to our goals for customized .NET training and responded with helpful information and advice specific to NetIQ's needs. SoftSource came to our site and delivered exactly what we had hoped for: real .NET expertise presented in a clear and understandable format.

NetIQ

WebTrends Division

We will most certainly look to SoftSource for additional .NET and application consulting as our needs arise. We have very high confidence in their ability to deliver.

Freightliner

The gain for enseQuence in taking the course, while difficult to put exact numbers on, will undoubtedly save thousands of lines of code in the short term and many man hours in the long term. There is little question that by taking this class, more project opportunities will open up to enseQuence, because of the overall net gain in productivity.

Your knowledge seems endless!

Plum Creek Timber

I really appreciated Shaun's depth and breadth of experience. His candor was honed and refreshing.

Plum Creek Timber

Just about all the Microsoft business applications and development tools are less expensive, easier to use, quicker to turn around projects than the tools in the Oracle/J2EE environment.

AttachmateWRQ

CIO

It would take a developer two days to touch 100 HTML files to make a change using J2EE. Making the same change in Visual Studio .NET takes 20 minutes to change the rules in the configuration file.
