The conferences highlighted various trending topics in transportation such as integrated corridor management, connected and automated vehicles, and what to expect from the upcoming Trump/Chao administration.

“It is exciting to get together with a multidisciplinary crowd each year and talk about transportation issues.

Customer Service Tip

Is your client satisfied? As engineers and technical professionals, we work to solve complex technical issues, but this is only a portion of the solution. Our clients need emotional fulfillment as well.  A client’s anxiety or stress level is reduced based on how they are treated and how an issue is resolved. Delivering excellent customer service requires not only asking the right questions, but also being a very good listener.
