"We have been extremely happy with the service and support we have received from the Aristo team the last couple of months. There have been times we have given the team projects with massive amounts of work, and the core team, with help from extra Aristo resources, has completed the entire research project by next morning. We have been to trade shows, and our VAs have reached out to people in advance and gotten us appointments that have lead directly to sales."
