UMass Amherst

When University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst IT asked students to help improve their information security messaging, the students had a ready answer.

School District of Philadelphia

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with.
