"In 2011, we engaged Robertson & Robertson, P.L.L.C., to perform our 2010 annual SAS 70 (Type II) audit, and found them to be thorough, professional and consistent with the guidelines established for this particular type of audit. Their firm proved to be infinitely approachable when questions or concerns arose, and were quick to respond to our queries. In all, their knowledge and expertise helped our company to improve our processes, focus on objectives needing to be fine-tuned and left us in an excellent position for the upcoming transition to the SSAE 16 audit."
