Consolidated’s SWT® Process for Surety


Surety and bonding are the lifeblood of a contractor’s business.

Consolidated’s SWT® Process is a proactive model created to provide structure around the elements needed to communicate your story to the bonding markets, maximize your work potential, and improve your business.

The SWT® Process incorporates finances, key relationships, business operations, future goals, and innovative thinking to capture the attention of the bonding markets. Creating a complete account of where you’ve come from -- and where you’re heading -- in a way sureties will understand allows for a healthy bond position. It gives you the ability to maximize your work potential and increase the profitability of your business.

When it comes to bonding, will you be ready for the next chapter?

Skyline Technology Solutions, LLC is full-service IT integrator and Managed IT Services company. Skyline began working with Consolidated for our insurance needs not long after the company started. In 2011 with Skyline’s continued growth, we began bidding on larger opportunities that required bid, performance and payment bonds. Consolidated was there to advise us and more importantly educate us on the process. Bernadette Good is always responsive, informative and proactive in our engagements. I look forward to working with Consolidated and Bernie for many years to come.
