"At Accedian, we use an agile methodology for the development of our products and solutions. Success with this approach requires deep technical expertise and experience, as well as strong soft-skills – the ability to communicate, adapt and instill trust among team members and various groups. 

I was surprised how quickly Orthogone was able to ramp-up and deliver results for our demanding environment. Today, Orthogone works with Accedian on everything from initial requirement specifications, design, coding and testing of feature sets. Working with Orthogone is a pleasure; because they have the right technical and soft-skills and because we believe that our success is as important to them as it is to us."
