“SMC have always been supportive and professional throughout our working relationship, pre and post opening urban kings MMA club. Urban kings had a very complicated systems installed throughout the club. SMC have made this system very simple and user friendly for myself and staff to use. Any time we have a question or technical problem at the club, SMC will resolve it either by phone, email or visit the club in the minimum of time. I would recommend SMC to anybody that is looking for a very professional and personable company.”
