Back in 2008, we offered training in basic software and hardware support and since then, we haven’t looked back. We have gone on to render services such as cybersecurity support, building encryption and hardening military-strategic systems including Radio Frequency Identifiers (RFIDs),” he said.

With top-of-the-line technical expertise in the industry, Slamm Technologies delivers each project with innovation, agility and resilience. This allows for rapid cost-effective and comprehensive deployment of application development and design solutions to earn our customer’s satisfaction and return of investments (ROI),” he added.
