Implementation costs are a simple function of time and we can work on your timeline and your budget to plan the project for exactly what you need and nothing you don't. If your team is more cost conscious, we can delegate more work to your staff while providing necessary guidance, support and tools to make them productive.
With that said, it can be challenging to understand what you're getting, so there are three pre-packaged solutions available.
