What Our Clients Say
This strategic relationship has had a strong impact on our ROI, as the development costs have always been reasonable. They deliver on time and have always provided excellent customer care. I highly recommend 12 Skies as a software development company. Claim Pros looks forward to a continued long and fruitful relationship with 12 Skies.
The database has been a huge upgrade from our previous system. As a result we have been able to decrease our turnaround time for issuing consultative reports and are now able to disseminate vital information rapidly to the primary care-givers. This has translated into a major improvement in our ability to provide fast and efficient services to our patient population.
We have had the pleasure of having you aboard and part of our team for many years. Shoma Homes would not be the same without you. We want to take the opportunity to thank you for your contribution to our Company and look forward to continued business in the future.
It is a great pleasure working with 12 Skies. Peter Ward and his team of developers have provided us with a modular system that has impacted the way we manage our clients/patients, allowing us to have better control and enabling us to provide better services in all the programs we offer. Mr. Ward provides us great support at a great price, I strongly recommend them for all your system development and IT needs.
We had two Access databases that were continually getting corrupt and users were directly entering data, which may have compounded the problems. We were hoping to simply convert the databases to SQL Server and implement security. 12 Skies went above and beyond our expectations by adding several useful features which brought the program at a completely different level. We now have users inputting data state wide and it has significantly reduced turnaround time for our clients from weeks to a couple of days.
I've had the wonderful blessing of working with Peter Ward for the past 12 years. He has been brilliant at translating our corporate ideas and goals into software language and making them operational. He has been instrumental in meeting all of our IT needs. Peter is honest, loyal and a hard worker. It is great to have him in your team.
I first met Peter Ward in 2002 when we were both vendors for a home development corporation going through rapid expansion in South Florida, which grew to $500 million in yearly sales. 12 Skies was responsible for the software application development project and my company, the WitGroup, Inc. (Winning Information Technologies Group, Inc.) was the network administration company. WitGroup and 12 Skies have continued to collaborate on various projects since 2002. In 2010 my partners in my other company, Family Med-Net. Inc., and I, hired 12 Skies to develop an innovative wireless gateway using Bluetooth to connect health devices to the web.
