What People Say
I have known and respected Charisse for many years as a fellow supplier in the facilities industry. It was great to finally have a chance to work directly with her at Blue Action Consulting. We needed to customize our Salesforce platform for more consistent user performance and greater reporting insight. She became a quick member of our team, has a deep understanding of how facilities companies can take full advantage of CRM systems, and delivers what she promises! She is detailed, professional, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Charisse and her team at Blue Action Consulting!

Charisse Rubio and her team at Blue Action Consulting have been engaged with Genesis Services Group for the past year as part of our brand and message initiative. Charisse has a long history of communicating and understanding the shifting needs of clients in the Facilities Maintenance industry. We chose to seek out Blue Action and Charisse for her particular interest in technology systems and their impact, past, present and future on our industry. We found Blue Action and Charisse to be a dedicated and trustworthy partner whose focus is the unbiased support and dedication she brings to her clients. Consultants are usually hired to fulfill a particular need. That task was accomplished within the first 90 days of working with GSG. Since then Charisse and her team have been able to help in several adjacent objectives that were not on the original ask. Blue Action doesn’t pitch ideas, they bring solutions. If you need input or a just a review of a process, I recommend that you allow Charisse and Blue Action to “bring the ideas”, you may get a lot more than you asked for.

“VMC is so pleased that we hired Charisse and Blue Action Consulting to help improve our business processes and fully develop our Salesforce system. We’ve had many positive comments about her work and the training she is conducting with our whole team. I personally think the results are great and enjoy working with her! Her patience and effort to understand our business has been impressive. With Charisse’s guidance, I’m confident that we will reach the best solutions, even with some long-term sensitive topics. All her extra efforts to do what it takes, and make last-minute adjustments whenever necessary, will help to make our change process go better and smoother than we have ever experienced.”

It has been my pleasure to have been able to partner up with Charisse for different projects and committees going on for over 12 years now.

“It is an honor to write a recommendation for a person who I truly admire and respect, Charisse. I had the privilege of working with Charisse on the PRSM Board of Directors and the PRSM Vendor Relations Committee. In both capacities I worked directly with Charisse to accomplish the business objectives of PRSM. Charisse is a very dedicated, intelligent, hard working professional who takes charge of any challenge and sees it through to completion. Any Team or Board would be lucky to have her and her talents as part of their organization. Frankly speaking, I look forward in working with Charisse in the future because she is that good!”

Charisse brings tremendous value to each of the projects not only from the Roto-Rooter business perspective, but more importantly the customer lens!

“Charisse has been an invaluable member of RFMA since our inception. In 2013 she was presented with the MVP Award, which is given to an individual each year who has been a most valuable player on the RFMA team and deserving of special recognition for going above and beyond. When Charisse came to our first Vendor Rally in 2005 she asked immediately what she could do to get involved … and get involved she has!! Since that time she has served as the Program Committee Co-Chair, was a Vendor of the Year recipient and the Vendor Representative to the Board of Directors, and was a member of the Editorial Board for our association magazine. Charisse currently serves on the Advisory Council and served as co-chair of the RFMA Gives Steering Committee for the first three years of its existence. Charisse jumps in wherever she sees a need and gives 110% to whatever she does. I honestly don’t think RFMA would be where we are today without Charisse!”

“I have worked with Charisse and her team on several, very different, projects ranging from small retail service to large Distribution Center service fulfillments. Charisse has an extensive knowledge of her craft but her real value is in her ability to create a client’s vision. Charisse got the job done on time and at cost every time. At the end of each assignment, it was a typical response from client and peers alike to be amazed, gratified and astounded that she created a vision better than they imagined!”

Sr Director, Customer Success
“Charisse is very well known as a champion of relationships in our industry/marketplace. Every interaction I’ve had with her (over many years) has been an absolute pleasure. Charisse has always demonstrated the qualities of someone with whom I am proud to be associated with both professionally and personally.”
Director of Sales
“Imagine her surprise when Charisse parachuted into a recently funded dotcom startup that had raised $31 million but was short on process and planning. With the patience of Job, Charisse helped PlanetFeedback grow from a well funded idea to an functioning business, tightly managing our interactions with our users by ensuring that we were pointed in the right direction as we accelerated.”
President and co-founder
“I have known Charisse for more than 20 years and have worked with her in a number of capacities. Charisse has a broad spectrum of experience spanning sales management, strategy development, project management, process improvement and computer systems implementation. There are several facets of Charisse’s talents that seem to be a common thread in all of these successes. Namely, she develops processes that will lead to success, she communicates the processes to the appropriate players and she has the follow up skills to help drive the discipline to adhere to the processes. I have seen Charisse use these same skills time and again to drive success.”
