Work for It: Earning Our Clients’ Business

Author: Scot Thrower, Business Development Manager at A-LIGN.

Feeling stuck in a relationship with your current audit and security solutions provider? It doesn’t have to be that way! A-LIGN provides compliance solutions without multi-year contracts or strings attached. While other providers lock you into costly, multi-year contracts that may lead to legal issues if you are not satisfied, A-LIGN offers its services without multi-year contractual obligations while maintaining flat fixed fees over a three-year term.

Many of our clients have told us that one of the reasons they made the switch to A-LIGN is because we do not make them execute a multi-year contract.  Once you’re locked in, the provider may not feel the need to give your business 100% of their time, effort, and energy.  There’s little or no penalty for supplying your firm with late or sub-par work.  This shifts power into the hands of the provider, not you, the client.  A-LIGN does not require its clients to sign multi-year contracts because we want to earn your business for each and every engagement, year after year.

At A-LIGN, our goal is to relentlessly exceed the expectations of our clients.  Our team of audit and security professionals will strive to ensure the quality of the work performed goes beyond the necessary.  We aim to deliver a quality final report, on time, while minimizing the strain on your resources.  A-LIGN will be all in for you, year in and year out, without ever needing a multi-year contract to keep you as one of our valued clients.

A-LIGN Offers:

  • Excellent service without multi-year contractual obligations
  • Competitive, fixed-fee pricing that stay flat over a term of three years
  • Innovative solutions for the changing audit landscape
  • Top-notch and verifiable client satisfaction
