- >Consultancy Pricing
Implementation costs are integral to the deployment and stability of any Home Automation Solution.
Hence we try to be very flexible on our pricing options for our services, offering remote configuration and setup services where ever possible. This approach allows us try and keep charges and timescales to a minimum.
T&M services, Ad-hoc and Configuration days expand our service offerings giving you the flexibility to manage your costs effectively. To save more you could go for the Retainer Fee option.
When your requirements have been discussed and the consultancy needs scoped a Statement of Work (SOW) and a quotation are produced. Work only commences once the SOW and payment has been agreed.
Standard Rate: applied to a skills requirement that ITOPS considers to be of a lower level of complexity, requiring a skill-set that is generally considered to be a core competency for our Consultants and Engineers. For example, system updates, installing standard components and basic set-up.
Advanced Rate: applied to a skills requirement considered to be higher than standard, whereby enhanced 'midrange' to 'enterprise' skills are needed. This covers the services that we deliver on a frequent basis, within a clearly defined Statement of Work including the Design of a new system or solution.
Configuration Days: can be purchased in advance and can be called off for Standard or Advanced work which is scheduled well in advance for a mutually convenient day.
Retainer Fee: Can be purchased along with equipment and provides a 20% discount off any subsequent T&M or Daily rates.
T&M: Minimum of 2 hours plus travel. Urgent T&M is for on-site attendance within 24 hours.

Mileage, Accommodation & Subsistence Charges
We endeavour to keep travel time, overnight stays and associated costs to a minimum by allocating a consultant located in the close proximity to the client's site.
Though our staff are located in the North and the South of the country it is not always possible to allocate local resource to a project. This may be due to other commitments or the specific nature of the skill-sets required. Under these circumstances additional charges may be added to a consultancy quote dependant upon your location and the duration of the project.
