Testimonial

“When I came [to ATC], I needed an IT team, someone that I could trust, and so I brought Unió Digital with me. Aaron is my go-to; I can text him and he responds pretty quickly, which is wonderful, and I appreciate it a great deal. Their response is really good.

“Unió is always looking for ways to lessen the financial burden, because we’re a nonprofit theatre. They help with all [our] projects, and we rely on them all the time.”
