My Testimonials Testimonials

"Anthony is a problem solver when it comes to software development. He is able to develop easy to use business solutions and work on a team."

James Alt

"Very knowledgable, friendly and professional and has good ability to understand the business problems we're trying to solve."

Scott Moser

CEO at Caretraxx Inc.

"Finding a qualified and reliable development resource to build out highly conceptualized designs is often a difficult task. Finding a developer that meets the standards of what you're visually looking for while also providing quality code is a stressful and time consuming process. Working with Anthony the past few years has eased these concerns and allowed me to focus my time back on effectively managing a business. In addition to the quality of his work, Anthony is highly responsive, efficient and always professional to deal with. It's been a great business relationship that I look forward to continuing."

Jeff Brandi

"I had the pleasure of working with Anthony Rappa (Rappasoft) on a project that I needed his help and expertise with. I just wanted to say that Anthony is a true professional and is very skilled in what he does. He was very accommodating when it came to what was requested and what needed to be done. Communication back and forth was timely and his work was spot on. He was not happy unless I was happy, so would finish what needed to be done, before his he considered his work to be complete. I would not hesitate in recommending Anthony to anyone and I look forward to the next time I work with him."
