..... As a successful businessman, Mr. Cloutier feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly.

Mr. Cloutier takes the time to understand each individual client challenge and opportunity.

The American Management Services, Inc. provides privately held companies, primarily family owned businesses, the tools and opportunities to grow. It also meets with business owners throughout the country to challenge their company’s needs, sales, profits, and ease of operations. American Management Services, Inc. buys leads for businesses. Additionally, The American Management Services, Inc. get referrals from clients, banks, and accounting firms.
According to Louis Mosca, vice president and COO, all leads are bought from Dun & Bradstreet. Mr. Mosca also stated “We deal only with business clients, not individual consumers. We are strictly a business-to-business company.” American Management Services has four groups that make up the company. Consisting of consulting, call center, outside sales, and survey which work hands on with the business clients. If a potential client indicates interest, the client will begin the necessary introduction process. For a nominal one-time fee, the company will then send a consultant to a potential client’s facility for five to ten days. Those days are spent in attempt to identify areas of opportunity to grow. To ease the mind of the client, Mr. Mosca states “All company consultants are employees, not contractors. Our consultants have 20-40 years of hands-on business experience.” American Management Services will also answer any questions the client may have.
American Management Services has been in business 27 years and has worked with 7500 clients. Mr Mosca states “Each year we add an additional 400-500 to the client base.” In those 27 years, there has been only two clients not satisfied with the service provided. For example, 5-6 weeks ago one of the dissatisfied clients based in New Jersey posted on Ripoff Report’s website. “When we met with the business owner in September/October 2013, the owner was personally, and business wise insolvent” says Mr. Mosca. The client could not pay bills, payroll, or debt services. American Management Services worked with him over the course of 6-7 months and was able to restructure his company. The client refinanced his debt and that saved him $45,000 per month in cash. This, in turn, saved the client $540.000 a year. American Management Services then increased the client’s liquidity by $1,000,000. The client wrote the company a formal reference letter that has been posted to American Management Services website for 2-3 months. Subsequent to giving the reference letter, this same client posted “This insanity on Ripoff Report attacking me personally and our company’s results” states Mr. Mosca. Mr. Mosca has spoken to him since the client posted on Ripoff Report. Mr Mosca has also skyped with the client when the consultant was there, client’s location, on American Managements dime. Since then, the client admitted to over reacting. The client also stated, “I am very happy.” American Management Services has given the aforementioned client extra time for both parties to resolve any open items the client thinks are real.

The Senior Management Team, combined, has one hundred years of business service. There are numerous staff members with MBA’s or are CPA’s. One of the consultants “Is a Harvard graduate with a MBA and has spent his entire career helping small businesses survive and prosper. We also have one thousand client references that think we walk on water”, states Mr. Mosca. American Management Services, Inc. Customer Care & Complaint Resolution

Employee Testimonials NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
American Management Services treats their employees like garbage. They hire a ridiculously large amount of personnel with the expectation that they will not stay on board -- the turnover is huge. It's almost impossible to get expenses reimbursed and employees spend a lot of out-of-pocket monies to work here. The work seems easy but it's very difficult to obtain sales. They have a terrible training system and rule by intimidation and four-letter words. Very unprofessional organization. Be warned! They seem nice to begin with but you will be treated poorly like everyone else. And good luck getting legitimate expenses reimbursed. Stay far away from this evil organization!
