Ken Tamsin, CEO, Southern Community Services

I have trusted ERG with my business for over 3 plus years and have been very pleased. Our previous big company had issue after issue that they would then charge us to fix their problems. They are always quick to respond, willing to get the job done right how you want it and as quickly as possible. We were lucky to find ERG!
