"I am very happy with the system we got from you...the system works flawlessly, we are really happy with the product."
- Andrew from Ace Surveys Ltd.

"Thank-you very much for the excellent service you provided when my Altus unit was not functioning. Being a police Collision Reconstructionist, having equipment down is a huge issue. I appreciated all time you spent with me on the phone trying to trouble-shoot the problem, the very fast turn-around time with repairs and then shipping the unit back to me, and all with no charge! I used the instrument at two scenes the week I got it back and it worked perfectly."
- Erin, RCMP Collision Reconstructionist
