Company Updates — Spring 2019

Garpiel StaffNews, Newsletters

A new year brings fresh ideas and faces to Garpiel Group that we believe will enhance our clients’ experience. As we continue to grow it is our desire to streamline systems and implement new procedures in ways that allow for us to provide an exceptional service for all.

Beginning in 2019 our service agreements will auto-renew each following season unless the client moves or discontinues services with Garpiel Group. Nothing has changed in regards to the ease in cancelling services. However, a large majority of our clientele are long-term clients who are inconvenienced each year with a required signature for another year of service. This will allow us to provide many more years of service without interruption for clients who desire it. We will also be able to focus more administrative time elsewhere when not tasked with seeking and gathering service authorizations again and again. In the event of a change to a service agreement clients will still be notified prior to. For the clients who have been with us for many years and have no desire to change providers we believe this will be a welcomed change. For those who may be on the fence please know that service continues until you tell us otherwise.

Cash is king! All proposals for fertilization and weed control services will now include a discounted prepayment option. You will still have an option to pay per treatment but there is a 10% cost savings by paying for your treatments all at once, up front. We also offer prepay discounts for those who wish to fund their entire season in advance. If that is of interest to you or someone you know please contact us.We believe this is a benefit to our clients because they save on treatment costs and only have one payment to manage rather than multiple invoices and greater chance of an oversight and interruption of services. Overall, the relief in administrative time collecting receivables results in Garpiel Group remaining competitive with pricing and desired service results.

We are pleased to introduce Aubrey Moniz as our Staff Accountant. Aubrey comes to Garpiel Group with over 16 years of accounting experience and a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Central Michigan University. Fire up Chips! Aubrey cut her teeth working in a similar role for her family’s successful business and understands the dynamics of a family business and all it entails. She is a welcomed addition to our team and we are excited by all that we will learn from her, and her from us!

Also joining the Garpiel Group family is Tom Sapak as our Fleet Manager. Words cannot express how blessed we feel to have Tom on our team managing our many vehicles and pieces of equipment. He has nearly 30 years of experience working for Dow Chemical in a similar position and a bachelor’s degree in Automotive and Heavy Equipment from Ferris State University. For a company of our size to operate effectively it requires a person like Tom to manage its fleet and we are happy to have him!
