    Customer Quote

       We encountered a serious problem in our production environment that threatened to undermine our Web site availability and performance. When we were unable to recreate the problem, Zend's consultant conducted a thorough analysis of our project. He didn't push a quick fix or ask us to make a technology leap of faith. Instead, he helped us achieve short-term milestones with little or no business disruption or risk, and worked with us to reach our long-term goals for Web site performance and availability. Now we're running our PHP applications with the confidence gained from seeing first-hand how Zend works proactively to help us troubleshoot our Web environment.

       I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed and appreciated the consultant's style and the time we all spent together, it was an excellent start to our future with Zend.
