You will have a pre-walkthrough meeting with the project manager and client to make sure everything is addressed and that the transfer of trust is a smooth transition.


Leads and sales must be tracked and recorded through our system, it is how we know where we are and where we are going in the company. You will also be required to update our pricing data bases within our system.

This will ensure that we keep “winning” on our projects.
