At IOS, we conduct business straight-up, our clients are only invoiced for the actual time we spend providing our services, on an as needed basis. (We do NOT require clients to commit to monthly, annual, or fixed fee support agreements and firmly believe that value-based billing is never in the best interest of the client.

Our current consulting rates ranges from $120 - $180 per hour and are billed in 5 minute increments with travel time charged at half rate.
Test / Prototype Installations to verify the solution (click to display more)
Test / Prototype installations are used as an overview of large systems to confirm that Adagio is a proper fit. It may include setting up of test database on your server so the software can be reviewed in your office, on your time frame.

This process is equivalent to test driving the systems before implementation is actually done.
