I'm a partner in a small business consulting firm based in the southside of Chicago, and we've worked with S X Tech, Inc. on several occasions. Tony and his team are always professional and have never disappointed our clients. They're our go-to resource because they offer every kind of IT service imaginable, and, unlike their competition, they don't nickel and dime their customers. So, if your home computer is acting up, or your office needs a complete IT overhaul, call S X Tech, Inc. You won't be disappointed!

I worked with Anthony Sutton to provide laptops as well as technical support. Anthony provided great pricing discounts and excellent tech support over a four to five year period. I would highly recommend Anthony and SX Tech, Inc. to prove technical products and technical services.

Mr. Knight is very professional, very thorough with his explanations, very helpful and reasonable in cost. My husband and I put a request in for CPA on Thumbtack and Tax Busters replied almost immediately and we had an appointment set up for later that week. Mr. Knight gave my husband several helpful tips in regards to handling his business finances and employees along other things which we found very helpful. I highly recommend this service for tax purposes.

My experience with meeting Mr. Patrick Hayes was a very good experience for many reasons. First, he demonstrated he was very knowledgeable about tax law and the appropriate process that was related to my situation. Secondly, he showed integrity when he indicated he would do research to validate his understanding and confirm a specific fact of the tax law. Third I found him to be very professional as he reviewed past tax records and did not take the opportunity be critical of my previous tax preparer. He concentrated on explaining what needed to be corrected rather than ridicule his predecessor. Also, I found him to be very accommodating, approachable and most important available. I was most impressed when he decrease my fee and when I question why, he simply said, "It was right thing to do" , then changed the topic of conversation. I appreciated his work with my individual tax so much I asked him to get involved with my 2016 business taxes and prepare them for mailing and asked him to review previous years. Finally it was nice to work with a person who did not take up a lot of my time but who was willing to give of his time to make sure I understood a number of things I struggled to understand. In a short period of time I have come to trust him and admire his abilities and professionalism. I feel very comfortable referring Mr.Hayes.

Outstanding work. I hired Brian through Thumbtack to capture video of an outdoor event that took place in the evening. Under some difficult circumstances, including low light, Brian captured the entire event. The finished video turned out great and even the sound is crystal clear. He arrived to the event 15 minutes early and had everything ready to go on time. Very professional, easy to work with, highly recommended.

Brian negotiated the contract clearly, attended to all the details and performed the work in a professional fashion. This was our first time selling instructional videos online, and Brian gave us excellent help with encoding and uploading the video effectively. We also used his consulting services to help us pick a good online platform for selling. Thanks!

Tim & his team was wonderful and very helpful! They were quick, responsive and very knowledgeable. Our small business was up and running in no time with their expertise and suggestions guiding us along the way. We knew very little about setting up our business online prior to meeting with Tim & Michelle,and they were able to turn our website vision in to a reality. I would highly recommend working with Tim @ FreshinUp.

Dave was the best choice from about 12 companies we looked at. I was in software back in the day and it seemed Dave had a full plate as things weren't moving the way we expected. I've been there. We wound up canceling the project as we had a local source but he was really helpful and very honest regarding any credits we had. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Mrs. Shebley has been my accountant for 10 years. She always goes above and beyond to provide excellent client services. She is prompt in returning phone calls and emails, along with providing answers in a way I could easily understand. Her knowledge and experience make her a great accountant and I wouldn't hesitate to state she has become a good friend, one who was not just looking to add digits to her bank account, but to add them to yours. Thanks for your exceptional work.

From the very beginning you could tell Mike had a passion for marketing. Mike was able to take our successful business and breath new life into its marketing efforts from creating an entirely new website that is so much easier to navigate for our clients and much cleaner look that appears far more polished then the last one we had. To the "gorilla type" creative market tools and ideas to reach those decision makers who have very close relationships with your competitors. Mike and the entire Costigan Consulting group has been great!

I am so happy I found Emily as she has changed my world. I have been doing the same business for the last 12 years, but actually started my own business last year. As a business owner, everyone knows how difficult it is to get everything organized and try to do everything yourself so I hired another accountant to handle my books. Going through the process now with Emily, I am finding that its extremely important to do your homework to find the right person for the job. Emily came into my business and within a week she had some processes and systems in place for me. She has not worked with anyone in my industry and she absolutely nailed it. I was so impressed. She also helped me with my taxes, set up my accounting system and is sending me monthly reports for me to make better business decisions. As everyone knows, you can't make the best business decisions if you don't have your numbers in tact. I also mentioned to Emily about a couple of books that I heard of in the business world, she bought them the next day, read them in a couple of days and tabbed everything to go over with me. She is tenacious and extremely motivated. Her task list is always on par as she is super focused. On top of her superior business skills, she is down to earth and such a joy to work with. When it comes to business systems and processes, numbers, taxes, consulting, accounting, bookkeeping, social media and everything that a business needs, make sure to hire Emily.

Jeff and Pat Klingberg of Mountain Stream Group have been instrumental in helping me move forward with the development of my invention. Not only have they helped me perfect the development process from an engineering perspective, but also they have become actively involved in the marketing and product development lifecycle. It was difficult working with companies who only had a half-hearted interest in my endeavor. Jeff and Pat have travelled to my hometown twice for one-on-one meetings that have helped to further enhance the product. If you are looking for a company that will support your endeavor from all business angles I highly recommend Mountain Stream Group.
