Whenever I have an issue, the techs are usually out within 15 minutes of calling! They have an outstanding support team who go above and beyond for our bar and the assistance from their marketing team is something I can’t even begin to explain. From hosting an event or themed parties to helping us promote our business, they do it all! I have never had an issue with them and truly value my business relationship with AHG.
