At Zekiah Technologies, we really like information technology. We like getting hardware and software working together. We like optimizing that last routine to make an application run slightly faster. We like seeing how far we can take technology and we really like finding new things to do with it. It’s how we spend our time and it’s why we started our business.

As much as we love information technology at Zekiah, we understand that our customers are not interested in technology for technology’s sake. In order to commit to a technology, it must have a significant value beyond the fact that “it’s cool.”

addition, the greater computing power available in modern handheld
devices means your users want to take data with them to support them in
