Customer Testimonials

"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Optiform as a partner. Optiform has been a trusted application support and systems integration provider for Lifeworks for many years. In my seven years here at Lifeworks, I have always had responsive and effective support from many of the excellent technical team members at Optiform, whenever it was required. Recently, Optiform has been helping Lifeworks reduce overall application costs for our document management systems by partnering on a custom development and system redesign project. We are excited about the reduction of system complexity and ongoing maintenance fees this project will provide our organization. Optiform has always provided timely, courteous, and highly technical support for critical systems we depend on. We have great confidence in Optiform's ability to continue our successful partnership in the future. "

Don Becchetti, Director of Information Technology

"Your business manager took it upon herself to remedy a potentially very costly situation for our agency in spite of the fact that Optiform was under no obligation to do so. "

Ohio Department of Natural Resources

"We discovered that the university requires an SSL connection between the new eForms system and the MS SQL database. Optiform's engineer saved the day after the software vendor stated this was an unsupported configuration."
