Company Philosophies

Marvin believes in building personal relationships with customers, and the goal is to provide fantastic customer support on all projects large and small.
Marvin performs all work himself; nothing is outsourced. So you can be confident in the work completed. He will not take on any work that he is not fully qualified to perform.
You don't have time to sit around waiting for things to happen. Marvin knows that maintenance windows don't happen during normal business hours. This often means working late nights and weekends to minimize customer impact. Whatever it takes.
Technical people are notorious for passing the buck. While some consultants might walk away when something doesn't go as planned, Marvin sticks with it until the job is done. Marvin takes full ownership and responsibility for technical problems, projects, or other tasks and takes care of it.
Marvin tries to occasionally step outside of the office and get some fresh air, food, water and other basic life essentials. But you can count on him to come back and finish the job.
