"We were working with one of our vendors to configure SSO via ADFS to access their web application. We needed additional expertise and guidance to move the project forward so we contacted Buckhill Ltd. In a matter of days they had their developers working on it. They quickly determined the configuration issues we were having and provided explanation on how to get them resolved. We were very impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and diligence in assisting us on this project."
