"Cougar have delivered a high level of service and fantastic end product ...which is now operating as expected with recognition from the client and customer. It is worth mentioning that this project was delivered within an exceptionally short period of time ... we knew this was going to be a challenge. However, this was achieved through optimised and collaborative working. ... Mateusz Jozko performed exceptionally, demonstrating an indepth understanding of our requirements and the operational process. Ultimately this was key to successful delivery of our project. Many thanks to Ben Gray for his input & support for the networking and cyber security aspects of this project."

"This project was a little more complex than any of us realised, but Andy and Michal picked up the requirement specification and were flexible enough to implemented the changes needed and see the project through to completion. They always have a great work ethic and attitude, and are both highly professional and competent. It has been and is always a great pleasure to work with them both. I think they probably know more about our system now than we do. "

"Given that the product was new, ... the methodology was new ... and the industry... was new to the company, your engineers took to their tasks without hesitation and with some guidance at the start, delivered a product you can be proud of! Over the course of the project the engineers grew into their roles, and by the end the execution was slick, with minimal input from myself. It was a pleasure to work with Clem and his team of dedicated engineers!"
