Why does your firm need back office services? Did you previously handle these needs in-house?

We had a security breach and needed to outsource this important function.

We needed confidence that our data would be safe from internet breaches.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of the service provider's involvement?

We have basically outsourced most of our back office costs and opened up new streams of income to improve other areas within our organization.

Could you describe the service provider's pricing structure and how they billed you?

They price us on a set amount and we pay additional money for more advanced services.

An outside sales rep made the initial call and we then set up a company meeting. It was an easy decision to move forward.
