Our Clients’ Words
Well worth the time!
I’m glad I went through the R3 audit process with CCIA. I was reluctant at first due to the time commitment, but it proved to be well worth the time spent. I encourage each business owner to take the time necessary to complete the R3 audit process. You won’t regret it!
