Client Testimonials

We take pride in our strong reputation – you can rely on us!

We used to spend hours of time with our IT support company discussing why lists of open jobs had not been completed. Since moving to Solab that just doesn’t happen any more. Instead, we spend the time developing our system and improving it. IT is really working for us now – and our clients and staff know it!

50 users – Life Sciences


The Solab team have been incredibly responsive to our needs, not only did they help us address our obvious problems – they were always willing to suggest new ways of doing things based on their experience of tackling similar problems for other clients.
