“We have been extremely impressed with Lightstream’s attentiveness to our needs and constraints. Lightstream’s willingness to travel to our campus to meet with us personally has been invaluable to understanding our strategic goals and challenges. At a time when budgets are limited, and goals are ambitious, Lightstream studied and quickly understood our brand and developed positive working relationships to become an important extension of our team.

The production that has come through this partnership has exceeded our expectations in terms of elevating the tone and design for peer review. Lightstream’s deep industry knowledge and flexibility has made our partnership effective and enjoyable. Timetables have been adjusted for us when needed, with nimble response times that compensate for any delays on our end. Our experience with Lightstream has been extremely positive and I strongly recommend the company without reservation.”
