Based on this quality experience we will definitely keep FocusForward in mind as we consider outside resources to support our business growth."

As an e-commerce business, one thing we thought was really cool was how FocusForward implemented a training center to promote professional development and growth by building and enhancing employees’ computer skills. We're very excited to continue working with FocusForward.
We've been really happy with the quality of their work so far, and we hope that both businesses can grow together!

FocusForward made a world of difference in cutting down processing time for our office. This was our first experience working with an outside task force to prepare packages that we would normally handle internally. Throughout the course of the project FocusForward remained responsive, adaptive, and attentive to our needs.
We would recommend FocusForward to anyone searching for an outside solution that is both timely and cost-effectiveShelby Long, Kalamazoo College
