Tasks – Projects
I work with my clients to determine the estimated completion for their tasks or projects based on their needs and priorities and the requirements of the tasks/project. The average turnaround time on tasks is 48 business hours.
We estimate individual projects based on the work involved.
Weekly status reports are available to each client by the close of business on Fridays. The report includes the following:
- Status on outstanding tasks
- Action Items Log
- Issues & Risk Log
We use Asana for tracking all projects and tasks; clients are provided a log-in to their project and can check the status of tasks at their leisure.
I require all clients to meet with me a minimum of twice a month for at least 15 minutes. These meetings help me stay in touch with you and make sure I’m offering the best service possible.
I want our clients to be comfortable and secure knowing their information is safe with us. Our servers and laptops use the McAfee suite of tools for anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall protection. The virus and spyware software is updated on a monthly basis to ensure we have the latest available version. Our wireless router is encrypted and requires a password to access.
We back up our systems on a weekly basis to an external hard drive in case of a system failure; including all cloud-based applications.
The two hours of training time is on us, any additional time after the second hour is billable time billed within your package rate.
We use the following tools in our business and will gladly provide training to you on any of them at our expense.
- Asana – this is our task management system and we encourage clients to use it for communication on tasks and projects, to add their own tasks, add files that are relevant to projects, etc.
- DropBox – sharing project/tasks files.
- Zoom – screen sharing, calls and training.
- PandaDocs – electric signing contracts.
All confidential client information is stored in the client project folder in Asana that is a secured environment.
I use Last Pass to keep all login information secure and confidential.
If you refer a friend or colleague that becomes a client, I will give you 20% off your next invoice.
Upon completion of the working relationship, the client has 5 business days to download their files if in the shared DropBox folder. In addition, I offer 30 minutes of my time to make a smooth transition, when necessary, and answer any questions.
