TESTIMONIALS

"They were tireless and patient as they made precision in-sights and pragmatic recommendations that helped balance the tradeoffs of early product development. Their innovative solutions to the myriad of technical challenges thrown their way were essential to our fielding of 3 different hardware models of a novel product in under a year. The product has been in Malawi and operating beautifully for nearly a year where all competitor products crumbled. Alogus was professional, fun to work with, innovative, and a huge improvement to our business. We look forward to expanding the AspectReporter(TM) product and will seek Alogus out as our design partner on the next product, without question."

"Over the years we think of our time with Alogus fondly and feel lucky to have found them so early on in building our company, we cannot praise them enough! They are always optimistic, yet extremely realistic especially when it comes to production timelines. They consistently strive for the best, leave no stone unturned (when predicting potential future roadblocks) as well, the friendly rapport during our team-meeting calls goes a long way! I do not hesitate to recommend Alogus to anyone who wishes to work with a team that feels like partners."

"I was very impressed with the

breadth of knowledge, technical expertise, and client-oriented work style that the Alogus team brought to the projects. Alogus has proven many times to be a nimble, responsive, and reliable partner with real-world, practical mechanical expertise. Having Alogus in such proximity to AFFOA was of tremendous help - being able to work on problems in person together was invaluable. I wholeheartedly recommend Alogus Innovations for those seeking multi-
disciplinary, system-level hardware and prototyping solutions."
