In this era of outsourcing, it is more important than ever to understand the origin of the services we use, and how that relates to supporting the U.S. economy. Every day, more and more consumers are making the conscious decision to patronize service providers who employ and support the American workforce. AtMADE in USA CERTIFIED, we are working hard to identify American companies supporting our USA workforce, and then supporting them in all our marketing.
Until now, consumers who make the choice to purchase services from U.S. companies have had no way to know if a company is truly using U.S. based labor.
Businesses are outsourcing customer and product support services at an accelerated rate. Unfortunately, companies providing services ranging from consulting to software design that appear to be based in the United States are in fact utilizing foreign labor.
The time of businesses falsely claiming to be a service in the USA is coming to an end. The Buy American Act mandates that companies that claim to be a “SERVICE in USA” must be able to PROVE it, or they will incur large fines. We have worked hand-in-hand with government agencies to create a detailed, extensive audit process to certify a service- based company as an official “SERVICE in USA CERTIFIED”.
To qualify for the license of the SERVICE in USA CERTIFIED™ Seal, a business must demonstrate that all labor is provided exclusively from within the United States of America. From the boardroom to the mailroom, including everything from legal to accounting, to call centers and staff, those positions are held by Americans here.
The SERVICE in USA CERTIFIED™ Seal is the Solution!
