Booking shy? We can provide a scope of work for each project and bill hourly against this estimate. Our model is truly flexible. We can consult for one hour or staff your needs on a retainer basis for an extended period of time. You don’t pay for un-used hours, and you aren’t surprised by additional hours in an accepted scope. Need a flat price for a project? We can do that too (again flexible).
