I wanted you to know what a great job Tambe did getting our IT Teams new offices / cubes wired and prepared for our team. Not only did they get everything installed tested and cleaned up promptly and professionally, they went the extra mile to correct some issues that the cube vendor missed when they installed the cubes. That type of service and response is valuable to our team and company and speaks volumes for TAMBE, its people and services.
