“We consider [Southwest Cyber’s] IT technicians as part of the TOMAGWA family. They’ve helped us so much of the years we have known them.”
“We learned of Southwest Cyber Systems through a friend and it was certainly our lucky day. John Kruizenga helped us sort out a maze of different network providers (one was charging us for nothing) for our phones and internet services saving us hundreds of dollars per month. He then proposed a way to use our current technology to save money and increase efficiencies in the system. We are most grateful for a service that is honest, competent and skillful. Thank you.”
