We needed a way forward, and Charon provided that, and more. Using the Charon software allowed us to reduce energy consumption, increase our available floor space, and save on maintenance costs.

Graham Wayne
Resource Manager at Canadian Department of National Defence

When one of our administrative staff printed a report that used to take 30 to 45 minutes to generate and it came out instantaneously, she wondered if there was a problem with the system. I had to tell her there wasn't: the system was just that much faster.

Sammy Richmond
Systems & Networking Manager at The City of Hammond in Louisiana

Our employees were enthusiastic about jobs that used to run eight hours now being done in ten minutes.
