"Buckhill was able to bring a solution in a complex interoperability problem (ADFS/SAML with SOAP between Linux/Windows platform). I was often impressed by the level of their expertise and deep knowledge. When problems arose they were able to find creative solutions with an emphasis on reliability and security. I can say that during the whole project Buckhill was never the bottleneck, our success with this project is definitely due to Buckhill's talented team."

We were very impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and diligence in assisting us on this project."
