  • MCS will operate independently, accepting no undisclosed revenue from any source related to work done for its clients.

  • All recommendations will be based on the specific business needs of a client as well as their financial situation, culture, technology infrastructure and resources. At no time will a pre-formatted or general recommendation be provided that is not suitable for implementation.
