“One of the best HD Solutions investments I made was to have [a Hard Dollar] consultant come to my office, and to work through the software with me on one of my jobs. He was patient, asked good questions and then provided some valuable recommendations that I still use today, and that was years ago! This personalized approach took my ability to use the software to the next level.”
