Feedback

"After researching multiple options, it was ultimately Kevin and the eSpatial product that sold me on the switch. I would call or email him questions and he would respond as soon as possible with answers or solutions to all of my questions. I highly recommend working with Kevin and the eSpatial team."

"Kevin reported to me in eSpatial. At all times I found Kevin to be reliable and organized. He is a quick learner and can run with any project that is assigned to him. Whether working independently or part of a team, he is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. He is comfortable working on the technology side as well being very personable with excellent communication skills, which is a great combination and rare to find!
