Standard Features

Bring us your unique software requirements, and OIT staff will help you evaluate existing products on the market, if there are any, and determine whether customized software needs to be developed. If so, software will be designed and developed in house. Depending on the resources required (development time, sever, storage space, etc.), your request may need to be approved as an OIT project first.

SLA: You can expect an email or phone call within 2 business days to schedule a consultation meeting.
