I have been working with Cynoteck for the past 6 months and it has been a great experience. Cynoteck has been deeply involved since the beginning of the project including the design phase. This team has always been available for me to brainstorm with as well as shed light on new ideas I had not thought about. Numerous times I had presented very difficult ideas I wanted to implement in Requestky and Cynoteck always came through. Even when this involved the Cynoteck team to go out and learn how to accomplish the task. I am 100% satisfied with this company and will be referring them to anyone who desires to have a hard working partner to work with. I consider them part of my team and I’m looking forward to continue working with them with new ideas I have. Highly recommend!!: Alexander Castillo – Founder for Requestky, LLC
