Saucecode is all about helping Service providers leverage their skills. We seek to empower top performing Service providers with helpful tools to grow their business. Service providers who invest in self-promotion may achieve greater customer satisfaction. And, if they deliver on time and maintain high quality and ratings, Saucecode may reward them with new statuses, special opportunities, benefits, and tools that come with it.

Saucecode Service providers can gain account Levels based on their activity, performance and reputation. The advancement criteria canbe found here.

Advancement in Levels are updated periodically by an automated system.

The current Levels a Service provider can achieve are, Level 1, 2, and Top Rated.

Service providers who cannot maintain their high quality service, experience a severe drop in ratings, or stop delivering on time risk losing their Service provider status and the benefits that come with it. For example, late deliveries, warnings to the Service provider’s account and cancellations can cause a Service provider to move to a different Level.

Advanced levels provide their owners with additional benefits.
