"In all the years I have worked in IT at Serendipity Center, I have never worked with such an incredible team of network/IT consultants as we have found in IMR. From the first day they came to make some adjustments, our computer network has never been more stable. I like working with the techs because they are a fun group, who are also professional, speak to me in terms I understand, and are conscientious about our nonprofit financial status. This team of professionals is deeply committed to excellence and we are grateful for the many charitable ways that IMR goes above and beyond to embrace our mission and support the important work we do with special needs children."
