“Our certification as a woman owned business has opened doors to certain companies that we may not otherwise have had the opportunity to present our services.” With successful businesses, these ladies still have to find ways of attracting new clients.

Formula for Success

The certification has helped both to put us in front of a wider range of companies. Additionally, during the formal RFP process, which is most common for our industry, we are able to increase our scaled scoring due to our certification.”
