  • You work with support team on all aspects of service delivery by scheduling and delegating tasks, reviewing work, and coaching and answering questions warmly and clearly.
  • You act as primary client contact, answering questions with joy and advising as needed to suggest process improvements.
  • You review the books of potential clients to see what errors need fixing and to help sales in accurate pricing of new engagements along with crafting a plan to onboard new clients into our systems. When potential clients sign, you delegate and manage the necessary clean-up and onboarding work.
