Jason has been excellent to work within all facets of his service. His drive for client satisfaction is hard to match. He has consistently provided the service on time (or more often early). He follows-up to guaranty that everything was done correctly and delivered as expected (or better). He worked with to make sure that he was providing all the services needed and where possible, expanded his scope to do more for us. His integrity was also of the highest caliber and that was obvious throughout all aspects of our business (from initial bidding to final billing reviews). Jason seems to stop at nothing to make sure the service provided is always excellent.
