IMES has partnerships with a number of Asia Pacific, South American and European Consultancies that expands the breadth and depth of our services.  We employ specialists when and where appropriate and have a great bench that comes into play when our clients need them such as Web-Jive our web development partner.  We beleive that this structure reduces our clients financial investment while providing them with the best people possible rather than paying for someone's learning curve.
