F.O.C.U.S. Framework℠ and Process
Help is a phone call, email or an on-site visit away. Many clients need a quick phone call to assess a situation and to get guidance on the next step. Other clients need in-depth conversations about options and issues. Whether it is a quick question or a more in-depth discussion, a phone call is a good place to get started. Our clients want options and quick assistance whether they are across town or the country or on the other side of the world. Focus uses technology to work to stay in touch with clients. Phone, email, conference calls, and Skype are just a few ways we connect real-time assist clients.
When you need us on-site, working with you and your team to develop the best solutions, train, guide, or advise then you have that option. FOCUS clients can choose their preferred method of service delivery (Zoom, telephone, email, in-person, and other technology platforms). Some clients want email only or phone and email support, other clients, want on-site, email and phone support. Whatever works for you is how we deliver.
