Carl Mazzanti himself works on an impressive eight screens arrangement, piled two high across four rows.

The company loves giving tours to potential clients, and they feature a digital projection screen that allows for presentations and connects wirelessly to laptops. Along different walls are mounted computer monitors featuring up-to-the-minute details of the company’s daily, weekly, monthly and yearly performance, software gadgets which eMazzanti later offers to clients.
