“I absolutely love working with Pivotal.  I am a one person marketing department, so there are many times when I need some extra help. This industry can be very unpredictable when it comes to putting out solicitations and there are many times when there is way more work than one person can handle.  I know I can always count on the Pivotal team to help me get the job done.  I know that they will take on the proposal as if it were for their own firm.  They truly feel like co-workers during the proposal process. They always produce fantastic work and I know they will work until we are satisfied with the finished product.
Thank you Pivotal for making my job a little less stressful.”
