We handle all of your on-going IT work in a given area for a monthly retainer, which we can adjust upward or downward based on your needs.Example:
Flat Rate or Project FeesUnder this model, we take the risk that we have underestimated the time that we have to spend on the project. If it takes longer, your fees for the particular project stay fixed and you don't pay any more. If we are very efficient, we get the benefit of our efficiency. We also offer fixed price quotes for sufficiently specific projects.
Success FeesFor sufficiently specific projects, you pay us a reasonable rate or fee for the work and agree on an additional fee to be paid if we are successful, however you decide to define it. Not all projects qualify for this particular type of arrangement.
