 Lighthouse Retainer Program

Asmark Institute services are provided through the Lighthouse retainer program. Basically a “time and material” type of service, the retainer has been proven to help clients control their costs associated with regulatory requirements. The retainer covers our labor. Materials such as postage, UPS, printed materials and programs are billed for reimbursement. The total expense of our retainer program for the average location is less than $2,500 per year. This is the most comprehensive, efficient and cost-effective program in the United States.
