Mandates

Finding the right customers, and keeping them as enthusiastic references, is a key to any business.  When accepting a mandate, Solstice will provide a quality product and service delivered in a responsive manner on a cost effective basis.  As such, depending on the needs of the business and the scope of the mandate, Solstice may recommend outside subject matter experts to form part of the mandate team. These experts will enhance the quality of the solutions, allowing the team to hit the ground running, while managing costs.  If at any time, a client feels they are not receiving value, the mandate may be stopped at no further cost.

Solstice will accept only a few mandates at a given time.
