Arō’s relationships at the executive level and understanding of executive objectives was instrumental in aligning teams and driving project success.

Without the project management efforts from Arō, the ability for us to meet the objectives, stay within budget, and deliver the project on-time would have been very difficult likely resulting in client satisfaction issues. Thank you for taking the often overlooked role of project management and turning it into a strategic advantage for client and partner.

Jason Shapot
Business Development Executive, SoftwareONE

The Arō team did an excellent job for Net Health on a number of very difficult projects at a critical time in our business.

Their project management and IT expertise were an invaluable combination of skills that allowed them to be effective across our entire organization and externally, when needed. I especially appreciated their communication with me as an executive leader in the business.

Patrick Rooney

Leading a high-growth organization requires that you have partners that can scale with your business.

ARO became a trusted member of my team focused on project leadership for our most crucial digital transformation projects while focusing on cost optimization to ensure our budget goals were met.
