Do you charge by-the-project or by-the-hour?
Both! In general, we prefer to charge by-the-project so that you know your final cost and, at the same time, we are self-motivated to complete the project without cost overruns. For those projects where this is not practical, we provide quotes based on hourly rates suitable to the skills involved.
How much will it cost?
Small projects are, of course, easier to estimate. If we are starting from scratch and you need a clean spreadsheet set up with say 15 column headings and a few formulas, you can expect to pay $50. If you need a sheet-protecting password cracked, the price is $75. If you need other help to an existing spreadsheet, we will need to evaluate both your current spreadsheet and your Scope of Work. That initial estimate is free!
Why do I need this?
Your Excel spreadsheet shows you the bottom line, measuring the heartbeat of your business, like a stethoscope. With our help, that same data can be mined by Excel to show you a lot more detail, uncovering hidden health issues, more like an X-ray.
