Fellowes Inc, USA



Altnix was an instrumental partner in two phases of our Security ISO needs. The first being a comprehensive developed Service/Ticketing system for our global offices. The second being that of an Asset Management tool that ties all assets into our Ticketing systems to close a gap that we had in that category. They are strong partners in working towards a viable solution for our needs



The Altnix team was very easy to work with and resolved our needs in a timely manner.  Working with Altnix, allowed us to focus on our core business while they handled the technical components to help streamline our business tools.  We have found a strategic partner in Altnix
