When looking to make a change from our previous large service provider, we heard good things about Xamin. Upon doing our due diligence, an initial hurdle for Xamin was the size of their organization. After speaking to a few peer references and along with our own initial experience, Xamin easily clears the size hurdle with their attention to detail, service and delivery.

Patrick KaveneyEVP/CFO – First Eagle Bank

Xamin was critical in our successful transition to a more robust IT infrastructure and has provided us with a much stronger layer of network protection, all while maintaining the appropriate confidentiality and security of patient data. They fully analyzed our internal systems and made recommendations to increase our scalability and network support.

Dr. Jon GieserWheaton Eye Clinic

Xamin has been a key part of our IT strategy and security for over four years which allows us to focus on our core business: banking and serving our customers. Onboarding Xamin services and working with their project team was seamless, much different from our previous experiences.
