“iTech has exceeded our expectations in every engagement with Geiger. Most recently, iTech helped guide us to the right decision that has improved our productivity and while being nearly fiscally neutral. The planning, installation, and execution of our new IBM Power System was flawless and unlike experiences we had with previous vendors. I wish every technology partner we worked with was as helpful and as capable as iTech has been.”
