"Lisa's training, covering the terms of sale and terms of payment, was so clear and helpful that the time seemed to fly by. Our attendees, consisting personnel from Accounting, Marketing, Supply Management, and Business Development all benefited from her patient and thorough training. It was a plus for all experience levels. "

-What an L/C is not and common misconceptions.
-Why do buyers use L/C? What benefits to they get from using them?
-Why do suppliers require LICs? What benefits do they get
from using them?
-How banks process and handle LICs.
-What is the UCP?
-Nomenclature of the L/C.
-How to read and interpret a L/C.

"Lisa Kmec is knowledgeable, personable, extremely organized and has taken the time to explain and guide us through many of our 'export seminars'. Our facility has contracted Lisa Kmec several times to instruct Letter of Credit and Export Documentation seminars. The manner in which the seminars are presented enables the participants to easily understand and retain the complex and necessary export information. The handout materials are essential to creating effective export documentation and communicate the information to all departments involved. Lisa Kmec has perfected her training sessions to encompass everything you need to know for successful export transaction documents. "

"Lisa came to us highly recommended by a contact in our primary lender's Exim department. At that time, we were putting together a bid, which included a documentary letter of credit, that was international in nature and financed by the U.S. Exim Bank. At that point, we did not have much experience working with Exim, documentary letters of credit, and in the specific country at issue. Lisa was a tremendous help on this project giving us comfort that we were not exposed from a contractual receipt perspective and that we could actually produce the documents necessary to get paid. The bid, and the overall project wound up being very successful. One which, in fact, we use on our customer reference list. Since this time Lisa has consulted for us in time-sensitive situations and, again, provided very valuable advice. "

"Most companies involved in international business will eventually deal with some type of letter of credit. If you've had some training, you may have knowledge on how to obtain an acceptable letter of credit or present a clean set of documents. However, how much of your valuable time is spent trying to accomplish that goal? I have spent years working with letters of credit and consider myself an expert, but in today's environment, productivity is a key factor to a profitable business.

Document presentation is a key component in obtaining prompt payment, however, the other key is obtaining a clean acceptable letter of credit. Park Solutions has the expertise to assist in this area through seminars and normal consulting. Using the services of Park Solutions is one of the best decisions we've made. It has made a positive impact to our bottom line and we have no plans to change that. "

"Letter of credit shipments used to be such a burden for me. I have handed that burden over to Lisa Kmec and it has worked out quite nicely. She not only has extremely high accuracy rate with consultation concerning export documentation and acceptable letter of credit terms, she is also one of the very few people who ever win an argument with a bank over a letter of credit issue. I value not only our working relationship, but also the personal relationship we've come to build over the years. "

"Lisa Kmec with Park Solutions provided a template to issue letters of credit used in purchasing equipment from sellers located in Europe. She also composed messages to resolve an issue of delayed documents that caused additional fees, to our advantage. Lisa's advice was invaluable and we plan to call on her whenever we are purchasing overseas, where the situation would require her services. "
