Our services are part of a sound business and financial strategy. In the long term, our services pay for themselves through higher productivity and lower overall costs. That is the value we offer and the reason for our long-standing and continued success as consultants.
In most cases, we work with a written consulting agreement on a time-and-expenses basis. The agreement offers protection to the client against disclosure of any sensitive information that is learned by us during an assignment, and clearly states our role as consultants.
We use a three-tier fee system. For most consulting work performed at our offices, we receive an hourly rate plus direct expenses. We increase the hourly rate for telephone consultations, given the efficiency by which we can transfer information verbally. For all consulting work performed at other locations, we receive a daily rate (including travel days) plus direct expenses.
We require of first-time clients a deposit (retainer) of at least 80-90% of all estimated fees and expenses before work begins. In some cases, we work for a flat fee or at reduced rates when long-term agreements are negotiated.
