 Breaking News - SASid used as example in Wall Street Journal Bestseller "Results That Last"
 Most companies have incredibly inconsistent leadership. One or two leaders may be really strong and their departments shine, the others fall by wayside. Inevitably, the good leaders leave and things fall apart. In this new book by Quint Studer, Results That Last, he shows leaders how to standardize simple behaviors?behaviors proven to have predictable positive outcomes?and instill them across the board. The success of the company no longer depends on individuals. It is hardwired into your company culture. I think the thing that makes this book different is that he takes what seems to be overwhelming problems and provides a step by step process that feels ?doable." Plus, while they seem simple, they really work. SASid is proud to be mentioned in the book as an example.  Learn more about this book at Amazon (link). 

About SASid:  SASid develops Simple and Smart Insurance technologies that can be put on a website for a end-to-end paperless transaction.
