    Is it a Gerund Phrase?

    [ Please send me the number below the bar-code of the new order, making sure itís correct and precise. ]

    If we want to explain about this sentence that why progressive tense of "make" has been used, should we say because it's a gerund phrase? And, it plays the role as a conjunction?

    Use quotation marks - not brackets.
