  • Peter Jensen

    Working with Rutger on a rather non-standard project for a non-profit with some very specific requirements. Always pragmatic in his approach and will provide positive input. Not afraid to provide very valid challenges if needed.

  • Eline Walda

    My contact with Rutger was brief but highly effective. Rutger has helped me set up Google Tag Manager and has done so in such a manner that my goals are fully met. Moreover, a workaround had to be found for a technical issue, and he not only managed to do this, he exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with the results and I highly recommend Rutger.

  • Patrick Van Bergen

    I have come to know Rutger as a friendly guy with a strong eye for detail and quality. He knows what he wants and gets it done. He followed developments in the field of SEO closely and gave his customers advise. He made himself into an expert in Google Analytics and Google Tag manager, and used this knowledge to set up many implementations for customers.

    Rutger and I worked together for couple of projects at IToffshore and Procurios. We had wonderful time back then. I find him knowledgeable and very result oriented person. From sales and account management prospective, he is the best person a client can get. He considers requirement of client as his own and ensure they get the what they really need.

  • Jonas Lauwerysen

    A very pleasant colleague and a competent boss. As a supervisor Rutger is aware of what his employees are working on and is very eager to step in when help is needed. He has an objective approach to every problem and looks for the most effective way to solve it. He often offers new perspectives on possible solutions and listens to everyone´s suggestion. Rutger has a strong work ethic and is the first to arrive and the last to leave the office. He doesn´t shy away from crisis situations or difficult customers. He is calm and never panics or loses focus. It´s been a real pleasure working with him.

  • Jurgen De Cock

    Rutger is a no nonsense hands-on business/IT-analyst and who manages to quickly identify operational needs and translate them clearly into IT requirements. Rutger also has a keen interest in new technologies. As project manager, even though being customer-oriented, he will look for the fine balance between nice-to-have and need-to-have.

  • François Deforche

    I experienced Rutger as a hands-on professional always looking for the most logical solution and not afraid to innovate. Whilst being a team-player he always kept track of the goals of his projects.
