EST understands that being efficient is not a luxury - it's an absolute requirement.  Our past performance includes managing   complex interdisciplinary contracts under numerous technical assistance, training and event management contracts.  EST has developed and designed event and registration websites and provided support for hundreds of webinars and live streaming sessions.  Our technical assistance solutions have supported the logistics for hundreds of speakers, consultants and federal grantees throughout the country.

               We understand that efficiency is not a luxury --

          but a requirement.

At EST, we believe efficiency is measured by the delicate balance of technology and personnel.  We work to perfect this balance by using fully compliant and operational Cloud Technology Support Services while providing professional personnel support throughout the entire project cycle.  Our Cloud Technology Support Services include but are not limited to creating event websites, data aggregation, data analysis, data projection, listserv management, document dissemination, survey/evaluation data collection, attendee communication, grantee management and consultant and speaker coordination.
