The MAeX Method

Managing ALL Your Expectations for a Successful Project

What We Have Learned

The Importance of SCOPE

One thing we have learned after thousands of installations: You don’t want to figure out environmental branding late in the process. Trust us. Graphics should be discussed early on to hit all deadlines related to your project.

The Importance of Scope

There’s a reason we offer a personal touch and don’t just throw out raw budget numbers over the phone. Ballpark estimates can, and often, change as we gather the details. In our experience, every request has its own variables.

Consider Budget

Each concept is unique, requiring us to rely on our years of experience in:

Assessing client needs
Choosing best product and application to ensure vision
Setting a schedule from proofing/printing/installation
Open communication between client/project manager/production team

We want to understand your goals and the best to way to exceed them.

We look for a commitment that we can follow up on successfully.  We are committed to site surveys and it is not uncommon for us to  make Field verifications that end up in scope revisions.

Exceeding Goals

Why the MAeX Method? It’s a mutual agreement. MAeX stands for Managing All eXpectations

Hold us accountable to manage your expectations and we’ll do the same. This 21-step process ensures success—it is not easy to complete a W.W.W.O – well-written work order, when the scope is evolving.  All details are pulled together before it enters production. It’s a quest to check every box.

It's All in the Details!

Some things may seem mundane.

Aside from just getting the install address and contact information, there are details gather to keep your team on the same page. Do we have to order a special material? Do we need a lift for three people and some ladders? These are all important details and the MaEX Method helps us gather them all.

Having this information at the outset helps all phases of production. When our project managers have all the information organized – it saves time.

Which can mean a more efficient project for YOU!
