I know of some consultants that charge by the hour, however we don't.


For short GAPs (for instance) we charge by the day and base the length on past experiences, etc - normally it works out to 2.5 days.


For SQF developments we charge by the project and there are just way too many variables to indicate a price.


For instance the one we have coming up is an off-site development with 3 weeks at the end on-site to assist on starting up implementation and handling some of the training and then we just completed another one that was 30 days on-site and that company has opted for our eConsultant program so we will assist them with remotely during implementation.


Best way to find out is to call one and discuss your exact needs, dates, etc.
