What We Do
For more than 30 years, Leszynski Group has been delivering leading-edge information systems consulting services. We have helped hundreds of businesses increase productivity and profitability by designing, building, testing, and managing cloud applications, mobile solutions, enterprise databases, websites, developer tools, commercial software, and hardware devices.
We have self-managed multi-million-dollar projects, some actually given to us as a napkin sketch or a bullet list of requirements, because we can quickly grasp business problems and define appropriate solutions.
We work with high autonomy, integrity, and diligence, and we do not offshore or outsource any work unless client-mandated.
