Case Study: Desert Grove Database MS

A Start

One of our latest work, Desert Grove database management system, based in UAE, was first a start-up idea back in September 2016. The main founder, Mr. Michel Kalai came to our teams, as we had done a few projects with him before. Comelite teams and Project Department worked closely with Mr. Kalai to analyse, guide and prepare the foundations of Desert Grove database management system.

At the start, the client initially needed something flexible, with the ability to build on to it, and at the same time, displaying uniqueness and elegance. As explained in the intro, the Desert Grove story began with a simple idea: enable anyone to create the perfect environment to enrich one’s personal life to the fullest.

As most start-up ideas, our teams combined with the client, had to do define goals, targets, analyse the flows and much more. Finally, after 3 months of planning, going back and forth, the plan was ready.

Getting the Wheels Rolling

The Desert Grove application was based on Laravel, a PHP framework popular for speedy development, simple syntax pattern, database flexibilities and secure mechanisms. Providing a smooth interface for the custom development, Comelite teams took advantage to base the Desert Grove application on this MVC platform, with its function-rich libraries.

Desert Grove Case Study1

Needless to mention, the Comelite teams also prepared the main company logo with authentic design, and the divisions logos, business cards and letterheads.

Get to Know the Purpose

Desert Grove consists of 4 main divisions, Spas and Pool Construction, Landscaping, Design & Consulting, and Retail. Customers coming to the web application have the easy experience of choosing from swim spas, movable floors, marina pools and other services.

The application includes many forms allowing the user to custom apply for their exact request. This might include pool repairs and maintenance, cleaning, or spas and movable floors to the exact dimensions you will need.

The forms, the blogs page, the newsletter as well as all the website pages have been integrated with Hubspot Marketing/Sales platform enabling the company to track and measure visits and interactions from potential clients, in order to improve conversion to sales.

Technical Challenges and Backend

Desert Grove Case Study4The project had a lot of challenging curves, in which each page had its own layout so we had to use a unique system to accommodate the different themes and variables of each page. First we had an HTML/CSS design for each page, but later decided to develop the project on October CMS, based on Laraval. October CMS would allow us this flexibility to give a custom layout per page, as well as to allow the client to make edits in the backend area. Our teams also developed a custom October CMS module for the customer area and project management, allowing the client to create customer accounts, update the project status and more.

The language module was also modified to accommodate the application, as it was a bilingual application.

End Note

It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Kalai on this long-term project and Comelite teams wish the best of luck for the Desert Grove business, and if you need a pool or spa, or services in this industry, make sure to pay a visit to this website!

How I was Convinced: Why Salesforce for Business?

I’ve been working in the tech field for over 15 years and I’ve seen and heard and even worked with a lot of platforms. The first time I heard about Salesforce was some years ago where I heard it was a good CRM. Most of the bigger projects I have come across up to now, which included management systems and platforms, required ERP applications so when I heard of Salesforce for business as our main solution, I was pretty sceptical. My tech colleague, who has also worked with a lot of CRMs and other types of management systems spoke very highly of Salesforce. In this article, I wanted to let you know what I thought BEFORE of Salesforce for business, and what I think of NOW.

My Dialogue: Why Salesforce for Business

My colleague and I were discussing the new techs and trying to figure out a solution to base our 2017 strategy on last year and when she said Salesforce, I said, no that’s just a CRM. A CRM is not going to resolve the issues of companies with products and inventories and what about their accounting and transactions? What makes it so special anyhow? There are so many CRMs. We should focus on another solution, something more complete.

She replied: but this is not just a CRM. It’s a platform. It’s based on the cloud. This means everything will be online and accessible from any device, any location. No hosting required, no special hardware, no software updates.

Me: What do you mean platform? All management systems are Platforms. A CRM is a CRM. Odoo is a better software application. It has CRM, HR, Inventory, Sales, Purchases and it is fully open source, we can do any customizations. And it’s an all in one. But Salesforce, if you want to add inventory and accounting, you have to do more custom work and integration.

Colleague: Platform means that it has so many tools, you can create “apps” (modules for old tech people like me) without any coding. It has even a third party store too, it’s called App Exchange. You can even publish an app you make for others to use. There are platforms currently build for specific industries on the core Salesforce platform, like Property Base for real estate or Financial Force for accounting which you love. It is a full ERP too, all based on Salesforce. That’s why we say it’s a platform, not a simple CRM. It started as a CRM but now it is much more.

Me: (a bit surprised and curious now) Tell me more…

Colleague: It has “clouds” for all the products you need, for example Sales Cloud is for CRM services, Service Cloud is focused for businesses with support and services focus, Marketing Cloud for marketing automation, Community Cloud for collaboration environment and also, (taking a breath), it has AI, Salesforce Einstein, embedded in the whole platform. It even has an app called Salesforce1, it will automatically read your platform and you can create mobile compact views for it.

Me: Hmm… (now she has my full attention) OK let me do some research and check it out a bit.

A Change in Opinion

So you saw how I first started learning more of the “new” Salesforce and not the old impression I had from years ago. My main tendency being bent on ERP systems, it was hard for me to believe this so-called modernized CRM could replace Odoo (I had checked many ERP applications, and Odoo was the best I had come to up to here). Then I saw they are both different solutions but Salesforce for business is by far a much smarter choice. Now here’s why below.

Customer Centric Core

As Salesforce started as a CRM, the main core is the CRM, with the main apps available in pretty much all products (leads, contacts, opportunities, etc.). The main tagline of Salesforce is customer centric as well, which shows the change of modern business implemented within the platform.

Cloud Based Platform

As mentioned before, cloud based platforms have many benefits. The most obvious one being the fact that you don’t need separate server hardware and hosting fees. All is included within your Salesforce subscription. Also, you can access the cloud anywhere from any device so this is another benefit that internally setup platforms won’t give you. One of the benefits I like most though is that there is no need for software updates, and this will be done automatically by the Salesforce team. This video illustrates the benefits of cloud computing.

Flexible to Customize

This part caught my eye the most. Salesforce is not just flexible to customize. It’s flexible to customize without code. When Odoo brought forth the Odoo Studio App, it also caught my attention but Salesforce has multi layers of customization, from the way the menus are placed, access level customizations for objects, even fields, adding new apps and new objects, reports, dashboards and more.

Centralized Data

When you run a business, the most important thing is to keep track of what you do, analyse it, sum it up, and repeat your processes with improvements on your analytics. And if you have your info in different platforms, documents, spreadsheets then it will be very hard to get a good overview and make key-turn decisions from scattered information. Once you base your business in Salesforce, you will be able to see it all from the birds-eye view as a business owner.

Workflow Setup

One of the things that I liked most in Salesforce for business was the ability to create rules, email alerts, flow charts based on decisions and data. For example, we could capture the leads depending on what source they had come from, then based on that, send a notification to an account owner, or send a welcome email to the lead, or make other decisions. Or it allows us to create tasks and follow ups, events, campaigns and more. We are allowed to create triggers based on specific criteria and other automation techniques.

Third Party Apps

When I first learned of Salesforce for business, my first question was, what if we want more? Like many platforms, Salesforce offers a store for third party apps and integrations, called App Exchange. This business store includes categorized apps by industry, collection or business department. The good thing is, you can create apps and publish them for others to use as well.

Mobile Ready

As a Millennial in 2017, I’ve noticed one of the first thing people click on is “Is it available on mobile?”. Fortunately the founders of Salesforce have thought of this one and the answer is Salesforce 1. This is a unified app available for all devices, where you can connect to your own platform. And within your own platform, you can customize lists and forms to show best on mobile.

Scalability

As your business grows, you will need to level your gear for business. As Salesforce for business is made for scalability, you can increase your platform capacity, add on more apps, get more processing power and suit your business with the growing size.

Wrapping Up

Ok I think I have proven to you how I got convinced on Salesforce for business being an ideal. As a person in the tech field, I’m interested to know what gets you stuck and what obstacles you face as a business owner. So please feel free to let me know and I’ll be more than happy to get back to you.

6 Benefits of the Cloud for your Business

One of the most rapidly emerging technologies in the past years, and especially 2017 is making use of cloud computing. Cloud applications are advancing in providing various services, and creating a secure, scalable and facile environment for business owners. In this article, we want to see the benefits of the cloud and how you can make use of it in your business.

Benefits of the Cloud: What is Cloud?

In order to see the benefits of the cloud, we first need to learn the term. In simple words, cloud computing means making use of hosted services over the internet. The “cloud” is the internet, and cloud computing is making use of the services provided over the internet.

So why is it so important and listed as one of the emerging techs in 2017? Of course, because of the changes it will make to our lives in business. Below are benefits of the cloud that will affect your business life.

Self-Managed and Automatic Updates

Cloud services are self-managed, which is one of the best benefits of the cloud. You don’t need to have a separate IT guy to manage your dedicated or VPS server, or shared hosting, and you don’t need to install hardware and other software and integrations. In contrary to non-cloud services, you don’t even have to worry about software updates. For example, just recently Twitter had an interface update. Since it’s a cloud platform, you just logged in one morning and voila, your account was updated. No need for installation of new software. You have probably noticed the same on LinkedIn or in other Cloud services.

Capacity Unlimited

Another of the benefits of the cloud is that the size you need for your resources are tailored for you. You will be using a shared space so you don’t need to worry about running out of space and you can basically use an infinite amount of space. For example, I don’t ever recall worrying about my Gmail inbox and it running out of space. The same goes for other cloud services. Such as Salesforce, where each account has its own space and size, and you basically have infinite capacity and resources.

Accessible Anywhere with Anything

This benefit is one of my favorites. I remember a time where I was in charge of setting up a management system software. One of the challenges I had to conquer was the type of computer and its features, the software to be used and installed, the infrastructure of the office and then what if an update came? Oh, that was the worst part. An obvious benefit of the cloud is, whether you’re on your PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone, you can have instant access to your account. No need of anything except an internet connection.

Reduction in Costs in the Long Run

The cost-effective factor is very important for businesses, especially those trying to invest and plan out their future strategies. Using cloud services, you have the benefit of removing extra expenses such as hardware updates, software updated, maintenance updates and much more. So even though most cloud services have a monthly or annual subscription fee, you will benefit in the long run in terms of the time, energy and money you put in (and ROI you get back).

Fast Implementation and Scalability

Most companies like the fast startup of cloud services as one of the best benefits of the cloud. In cloud setup and implementation, the platform is ready to use, and you usually just have to sign up, and there is no need for complex server setups by your specially trained IT guys. Right from the start, you can setup your cloud-based applications as well. I’ve seen the cloud option in many applications, from Salesforce Products to Odoo ERP to Bitrix24 and many other cloud services.

Better Security

Here’s the best part. No need to worry about your backups and security. Another benefit of the cloud is how you can free your mind on the what if’s of if your laptops and network experience a security breach. Most cloud applications have layers of security so bad experience with a hardware or software issue in your office won’t affect your data stored in the cloud. What if all your sensitive data was on a hard disk and prone to damage? What if your laptop is stolen or lost? With your data safe in cloud servers, you can be sure that your company data is secure and non-dependent on a specific machine.

Wrapping Up, see who’s using it

So you can see that Cloud Computing and cloud services are rising and you need to learn how the benefits of the cloud can change your life and business. As indicated here, cloud providers like Amazon, Salesforce and Google now dominate a large part of our life and are emerging to higher profits as most businesses are migrating to the cloud.

Just to get familiar with the most important companies in cloud computing, you can check out this interesting article in Business Insider but Amazon is ranking #1, with Rackspace, Microsoft, and Google right behind.

Comelite Helps SIFCO to Setup Construction Project Management

Manage the whole business on one platform

Are you wondering how a CRM can add to your business? Check out one of the success stories from a construction group in Iraq and how they are benefiting from Salesforce CRM.

A few months ago we were speaking to our clients at SIFCO GROUP (in case you haven’t heard of them, SIFCO Group is one of the leading construction and engineering groups based in Basra, Iraq; responsible for the reconstruction of many projects all over Iraq with many relationship with other international groups in France , Oman and Jordan). So as you can imagine, the amount of projects they have in hand are countless.

Despite their many projects, what they lacked was an appropriate project management system where they could manage their interactions as they also had many partners and providers. They had to work on their invoices manually (you can imagine how time consuming that was) and gathered hundreds of different excel sheets, word documents and emails in order to sum up a report. Not only is this time consuming, but it’s also very frustrating and at times, can also be inaccurate.

At the same time, they had the complexity of receiving and following up on the many different invoices and reports they received from their partners and providers on a daily basis. So day after day, the work just piled up and it just never seemed to become organized.

Why Salesforce

So when we spoke to them and understood the amount of different work they have to handle daily and manually, Comelite gave them a solution where they would have the ability to collect and organize all the details of their construction projects in one centralized system. So not only did Comelite organize the scattered work in one system, but we also gave them the opportunity to implement the company business rules and workflow in the system so it would to facilitate the managing, controlling and monitoring of their projects and resources.

All of this was done on Salesforce’s CRM, force.com platform.

Now SIFCO Group has the ability to manage their projects, their resources, interactions with their partners and providers, their invoices (the ones they need to send and follow up on and the ones they receive from their providers) manage their bank accounts and their payroll management all in one unified and centralized system. Best of all, at the end of the day, they sign off with a graphical chart and dashboard of their daily report and can easily start planning the next day’s tasks, approvals and timetable.

When you are a leading construction company, you need a leading software to organize and facilitate your work so you can focus on the real aspects of your business and projects, and not worry about the amount of paperwork you have to handle daily.

Think you have a similar story? Share with us and we can assist you in finding the right solution for your business.

ERP Misconceptions: To Implement or Not To Implement

When it comes to ERP implementation, many businesses have a fear on the general scope and don’t know how to overcome this fear. Most of the fear comes from ambiguities they have in the process or the scope in terms of time and energy. What they don’t consider is what they are losing by not implementing an ERP and moving forward in business without one. If you’re a startup, not building your business on strong foundations will cause controversy and unstable grounds in your future strategy. If you’re a business with experience but looking to improve your system, every minute you lose in strengthening your workflow is a score point to your competitors. So no matter what type of business you are, whatever industry, whatever experience, it’s a big ERP misconception if you’re not overcoming your fear to implement. See the answers to some of the most common ERP misconceptions.

ERP Misconceptions: It costs too much

Many business stop at ERP implementation when they see the costs of a full system or just user license fees. What they don’t consider is that ERP implementation is a way of thinking and operating your business. If you want to progress and have a leading strategy, you need to invest in your future. Besides all this, there are many cost-effective and affordable ERP solutions, especially for startups. So don’t let it get to you and ERP costs are sometimes the biggest ERP misconceptions, and you can plan carefully and phase by phase to reduce costs but get a return on your investment.

No help in my ROI

Like I said before, an ERP implementation is a state of mind and way of thinking in your business. If you have all your real data recorded in your ERP system, you’ll be able to analyze your business results properly. For example you can see what time of the year you had the most sales, what product/service had the most income for you, which employee had the most conversions, you expense and your real-time balance sheet and P & L statement. So it’s a big ERP misconception to think your ERP isn’t helping your ROI because the mere fact that you have an ERP and are recording your cash-in and cash-out will help you in your analytics and sales strategy.

Staff don’t get used to it

One of the things that burdens on managements’ minds as a large ERP misconception is the ability to setup and train their staff to use the ERP. Many employees prefer to use a system they’re comfortable with and if there’s a lack of training and practice in the ERP system, they will refrain from using it. Also, if the processes they take in real life is not defined properly in the ERP system, it will also cause them to deviate from this path. So it’s actually an ERP misconception to say “staff don’t get used to it” and it will depend on you and how you define your workflow, and teach and guide your staff to enter their real-time data and keep track in the ERP.

My manual system is easier

Now this one is a deep fatal ERP misconception and don’t let it fool you. Honestly, I’ve seen people who prefer a manual system or Excel-based system even after the light shines on them and they see what an ERP can do for them. So what makes them say this? Easy, it’s hard to step out of your comfort zone and the human being resists change at first, but face it, if you want your business to survive, you have to embrace it and you will be surprised to see what difference it will make in you and your future strategy. Once you put one tiny step outside the boundaries of your comfort zone you will see the new possibilities and vast opportunities that were at your fingertips but you were too afraid to take them and risk on it.

Bottom line

Bottom line is, we’re in 2017. The world is revolutionizing. Businesses that aren’t digitalized will fail. Digitizing your business = having an online management system = ERP.

Not getting digitized due to ERP misconceptions = fatal mistake in 2017.

And no, having an ERP does NOT need to be limited to costs and budget and training and lack of tech resources. Just go for the change in your business, and don’t worry, what you seek is what you’ll find.

5 Success Factors for your Business Startup

In the digital transformation era, many business startups strive to find a place in the ever-growing market. Before, I’ve mentioned what you need to do to prevent failure in your business, but today, we’ll discuss what the key success factors sum up to in a business startup. According to business startup statistics, there is no elevator to success and you have to take the stairs. It needs delicate planning, hard-worked for efforts, summing it up, failure, and getting up and trying again. So, to help those on the start line, I’ve mentioned a couple of success factors for business startups:

1: Start the Idea, Go Phase by Phase

Your business startup might be a new innovative idea, or it might be something inspired by another business. Whichever the idea, you can help build it by detailing it out, breaking it into phases, and setting timelines and dates on it. Your success factor won’t depend on the strength of your idea or the originality of it, but it WILL depend on how you plan it out, execute it and persist on it.

 2: Determine your Business and Growth Strategy Success Factors

One of the most important success factors in business startups is your strategy. You have to know who your target customers are, their region, age group, lifestyles and so on. Moreover, what sets you ahead of your competitors and makes the difference? These are questions you have to first ask yourself to be able to determine your strategy. You will then need to work with statistics and set your goals, how many leads you plan to hit on the first week, your conversions, sales, and your growth rate percentage. According to this article, 90% of startups failed just because they made a product no one wanted. So first, plan and set out to determine all the aspects of your business strategy.

3: Training and Acquiring Skills

In today’s business, people love to work for what they do, and startups encouraging development of the skills and knowledge of their employees have the highest success factor rate. Your staff need direction and organization but you should always give room for growth  in their skills and provide the necessary resources for self-training or occasional training sessions to keep everyone in line.

4: Capital and Equity Success Factors

Everyone knows, in order to start a business you need a base capital source. Maybe you have an external investor, or have crowd funded your initial equity but be careful in your starting steps. From the very start, you should consider an accountant as your CFO to control the cash-in and cash-out flows, and be able to calculate the final ROI. Needless to mention, an ERP application to manage your accounts is one of the most vital success factors.

5: Organize, Manage, Grow with an All-in-One

Last but not least, face it, you’re in 2017. EVERYTHING is digital. Manual tracking of your sales, accounts, and purchases is out of date. Controlling your leads, market, quotes is essential to be in line with your social media and marketing tactics. You need an All-in-One application, to manage all your departments separately, release energy of yourself and your employees by automating your system (instead of tedious manual work, which always ends up wrong), an overview to measure and manage your growth. Trust me, you might think, ok I need to get started a bit, but as the famous quote says “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”…

Here are some real statistics form 2016 on how an ERP can affect your business and lead to success so even if you scroll and look at a few of the numbers, you’ll get the idea.

Bottom Line

There are much more success factors in a business setup than listed here and if you have a will to realize your dream, you are bound to do it for sure. As a word of advice, see and read on what others have gone through and what roads have been paved. Be in line with technology and use what it offers to push yourself forward and up the ladder of success.

Business Automation Growth: Lead Your Company Strategy

Whether you’re a startup or business with years of experience, it’s vital to have your business automated. Without a plan and business automation growth, your business won’t be able to persist and survive in today’s digitally fast growing environment. You might be a company providing services such as a restaurant or hotel, and in this case you’re customer-oriented so a CRM will be essential for you, or you might be a manufacturing company or inventory based retail company, in which both ERP modules and CRM might be a necessity. In any case business automation growth will have a definite impact on how you run your business and affect your company strategy. Now how can you start and what do you have to take note of? See a few of our guidelines below:

Business Automation Growth: ERP vs CRM

So now you know, you need to get a uniform platform. No matter what you choose to get your business automated, you need to consider it to be resolved on ONE platform and not an integration of several. Otherwise, instead of business automation growth you’ll just have a hassle of getting your systems integrated. In the end, your staff and management will be just fed up and leave your system. Now, in order to choose whether you need an ERP or CRM, ask yourself, is my business customer-oriented? And do I need a system to help my sales growth? And an overview of my leads and their interactions? Or, is my business more in need of efficiently working processes within the departments, from approvals to workflows and inventory/accounting tasks? Most ERP applications already include CRM modules, but a CRM platform like Salesforce, will be focused on building a customer-oriented workflow.

Business Automation Growth

Cloud or Web Based

In any management and workflow that you choose for your business automation growth, make sure it is web based, whether if it is a web application like Odoo, or a SaaS/PaaS like Salesforce. Cloud based management systems will ensure your business security, company data, and allow you to track and have control of all your data. Of course a cloud based system will allow you access to your business status from any device and any location, making it easy for you to manage and keep up with your business automation anytime anywhere.

Business Automation Growth: Birds Eye View of Your Business

The most important gain you have when you have your business automated is securing your business strategy. With a CRM or ERP, you can always have a real-time overview of your sales, customer’s interactions, leads, tasks, your pending purchases, accounting reports and much much more. Most applications also provide graph reports, excel reports and comparisons so you can increase your business automation growth by using business analytics and intelligence tools. Reporting is not the only benefit you will gain. You can get a summarized view on workflow processes, approvals, pending sales, inventory shortages and much more.  

Conclusion

To wrap it up, if you’re planning to have your business automation growth in 2017, you need to start with a management system to collect all your departments, data, workflows, reports and interactions within one platform. This is something that will impact your annual strategy and future business, so if you’re not automated, don’t lose time and contact us today.

Your CRM system is your most valuable asset, Why?!

CRM system

I recently heard a great story from one of my customers, he is a co- founder of one the companies in GCC, as a co-founder, he is passionate about growing their business. They started out with 12 employees, and now have 280 employees. This is a great development, and without a proper CRM solution it would have been difficult.

Since the start in 2005, he has demanded everyone in the company to register every customer along the way. One of his key points is that any customer or contact should be registered in their central CRM database, with the email as the top field to remember, being the key to their lead- and customer nurturing program.

What companies do!

Many companies use spreadsheets for storing their customer data, and I keep asking myself why. Spreadsheets get lost, they get outdated, and they might fall into the wrong hands. Business cards are important for collecting customer data. But not when lying on your desk. These customer`s strategies miss something important – collaboration. A customer database increases in value when everyone works together on populating it with essentials.

Here is why the value of your CRM system is so great:

Features of CRM system

1. It allows you to register your leads and contacts. You never know when a lead is ready to buy from you. Probably not today anyway. Keep them warm. It is never too late to start organizing your customers and contacts. You need some basic categories to make your data efficient so that you can implement your CRM strategy to fulfill their needs. You need categories like Customers, Lost Customers, Prospects, Suppliers, Partners, Potential Partners, Influence and Inactive Customers. You could also consider dividing customers into A-, B- and C-customers depending on different customer programs for each segment. So you might get rid of your complex spreadsheets once and for all.

2. You can track all customer interaction – from everyone in your company. Next time you talk to a customer or prospect, you get the upper hand when you know what that company is talking about. You can get the person to feel seen and important. And this history builds a long-time relationship. Emails should be in your system, and not in each person’s mailbox.

3. It reveals possibilities. How many prospects have you “not sold to” yet? Most likely a lot. I usually tell my sales team that a “no” most likely means “not today”. Most companies keep their current supplier until they are ignored. That’s why keeping them alive and kicking in your CRM database is so important. And if you have an opt-in newsletter or a great seminar plan, their business might be yours for the next quarter.

4. It makes your most valuable asset – the customer data – remain. People change jobs. Have you ever experienced someone leaving you, and nothing is left behind? The sales pipeline wasn’t up to date. The contacts wasn’t updated. The important contacts wasn’t registered – because all relevant information was stored locally. Don’t let it happen to you.

How do you manage your contacts and #customer data?

Why Do People Choose CRM?

No one wakes up in the morning and says, “Hey, let’s go implement CRM.”

It takes time. It takes money. It takes effort. PowerObjects has implemented CRM for thousands of organizations, and we can tell you that we see people come in the door for the same reasons, time after time:

Making bad decisions because the right data isn’t available.

Here are the 5 most common bad decisions business leaders make when they don’t have good data.

1.   They can’t accurately forecast sales.

2.   They order too much inventory.

3.   They can’t get their hiring cadence right.

4.   They keep underperforming employees far too long.

5.   They misjudge their cash flow/ working capital needs.

Growing too fast and not being able to scale business operations efficiently.

Losing key customers, sales, or employees and not necessarily even knowing why they’re leaving.

Do any of these sound like you? Or are you one of the lucky ones who has just decided it’s time to be proactive and avoid these scenarios? Either way, we can help.
