Allan is one of the most resourceful IT professionals I have worked with. He knows a wide array of technical disciplines and executes them with precision. Allan is always keeping up with the latest business technology trends and will be an asset where ever he is. I can’t recommend anyone better to handle time sensitive projects.
Allan has been great to work with! He is extremely knowledgeable and has been extremely helpful with network issues. Allan works fast and has always been able to deliver. I highly recommend him, as an aside, he is a talented photographer.
I appreciate Allan’s willingness to go that extra mile and do what it takes to get the job done. I could always count on Allan to assist, offer advice and troubleshoot issues. Allan is professional, knowledgeable and enjoyable to work with. His people skills combined with his education and technical expertise make him a great person to have on your team.
It was dark times for IT at G&B and I couldn’t have gotten through it without Allan’s support. Two months into the start of my tenure my boss gave his notice, leaving me to support my company’s computer and network infrastructure on my own. Allan at ISM was a true ally, helping assist with an overwhelming number of user support requests, disaster issues following a power outage, and fielding time to answer tech questions — all while continuing to do work for other ISM clients! Allan is an asset to any company requiring technical assistance while providing solid knowledge, communication and customer service.
Allan was an absolute pleasure to work with! He is outgoing, communicative, and he of course has a wealth of technical knowledge. Allan provided fantastic service, and I will truly miss him as our IT consultant and technician. I highly recommend Allan!
Allan did an excellent job in his position and was an asset to our organization during his tenure with ISM. Allan has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is organized, can work independently, and works to ensure that all projects are completed in a timely manner. Allan was always willing to offer his assistance and had an excellent rapport with the employees and clients of ISM. He would be an asset to any employer and I recommend him for any endeavor he chooses to pursue.
