honest

The support that I got from both Sam and Pieter throughout the process was second to none, they were available 24/7 to me. Benchmark listened to what I had to say, they went and they found they right company for me but very important to me was the staff, and Benchmark found a company that was of a similar culture to Office Technology and had an interest in taking my people and giving them a future.
