      To ensure an overall increase in efficiency in the production process, I designed an Excel-based program for keeping track of all cash flows. The end result was the checkmating of excesses which led to an increase in the Profit margin. These, and other programs that my team and I deployed helped the start-up to stay overboard during my entire time there.

      Due to my proficiency in the use of AutoCAD, I became the in-house drafter and was actively engaged in the drawing and designing of road renovation projects. This helped the Agency to save money as they would typically have outsourced this task.
