Block Hours Consultancy
Get the blocks of consultancy hours you need to build the right solution
Modern solutions need modern commercial arrangements.
Our block hours model allows our clients to constantly redefine value throughout delivery.
Block hours are purchased in advance at a guaranteed rate - your desired outcomes are clearly forecast against your investment, and we’ll work collaboratively throughout delivery to continually adapt scope to meet the target cost. We see that changes to scope are a natural part of the innovative process, and that matters when you’re procuring services.
You’ll find that we won’t ever suggest fixed-price, fixed-scope work packages. This model isn’t conducive to modern innovation-led projects which need to embrace change, rather than suppress it.
Many of our clients also like to purchase block hours as a backup for those times they need expert support. Sometimes emergencies happen, bugs need fixing, updates need to be installed, and your on-site resources simply don’t have the time or the knowledge.
Rest assured that we are simply a phone call away.
