Eric Weidner, President, Workbox

As new technologies and techniques become solid and reliable, we add them to our toolkit. We want to be sure our clients get the most value for their money, and we don’t want our clients running online experiments with unstable, untested software.

Our entrepreneurial side gets excited by new and creative online businesses and initiatives! We love to see our client’s ideas succeed, and we understand the need to get all you can out of your resources.
