Making Our Case

Did you know Cushing is Now CASE-Ready?

And it has nothing to do with suitcases, packing your bags or going on a trip. With deep roots in the Chicago community, it only makes sense that we’d take the steps to get involved. Comprised of  “sixteen prominent public, private, non-profit and cultural Chicagoland institutions,” these companies are shaping the Chicago business community.

What does it mean?

It’s a good question! From responding to RFP’s (requests for proposals) in a timely manner to understanding the intricacies of larger contracts and installations, it means our team understands there is more to doing business than accepting an order.

You might be thinking: that’s a good start, but what else? Glad you asked. Here are some other ways it helps us ‘make our case’:

  • A growing and diverse list of clients (from healthcare institutions to technology start-up companies).
  • Active community partner: Members of sales, marketing, and customer service (just to name a few), get involved with local associations and events. Involvement is more than one department!
  • Strategic plan: we didn’t get here by accident! As Cushing continues to evolve into a display graphics firm, knowledge is shared with customers in the form of best practices and techniques to complete jobs right the first time.
  • Pricing: there is a methodology to how projects are priced and its built around providing value.
  • When you work with Cushing, you are collaborating with an elite team, focused on exceeding expectations!

Adapting to the changing needs of our market has helped Cushing to remain relevant.  CASE is a program that will enable us to understand the demands of providing first class goods and services to Anchor members.
