"There are many providers who have a good knowledge of regulation. What distinguishes Ara is their ability to integrate technology, operations and the demands of our business to offer practical solutions. This means a compliance resource that understands and works well with our type of business.

The fixed-price support offering is helpful as it allows us to control costs effectively and ensure we're not "on the clock".

Our business is built on maintaining long-term, trusting client relationships. Our clients are our biggest cheerleaders. It's a pleasure finding a service provider like Ara that shares the same philosophy."

Michael B. Decter, Beryl McCallum
