My experiences with Lakota have been outstanding. Our company has worked with them on DoD contracts and have a great deal of respect for their abilities. What stands out the most to me is their ability to take a project from concept to delivery rapidly with very little revisions. They are easy to communicate with and always meet their deadlines. I highly recommend Lakota!
