OECC is a family run business who’s founder had a vision during his college days and made that dream a thriving business. They are in the business of product innovation, IT & systems management is not their main focus and did not want to be burned by it.

"One of the Impressive things about Avaniko is the turnaround time, So the reports that took weeks upon weeks to get back, and it wasn't what we wanted, I would turn it over to Avaniko. Basically the next day we would get the report back that met all our needs. It was Amazing!"
