Did SMS Assist lose the Walgreen contract for the 2013 season?

We have been getting calls from US Lawns. They are saying they have the contract for this year. Heard anything?

We were maintaining four Walgreens for a larger management company. They called and said they lost the contract as well. Therefore we lost the work... :-(

What did they do wrong? I started working with them this Winter for plowing Burger King lots...

So far they're good but I wouldn't mind a heads up in case they're a little shady.

Thanks SwatDawg.

We had no problem with SMS assist. All the bids seems fair. The administrative end was a little frustrating but not awful. Overall I was pleased and hate to lose the contract.
