How can you increase your hourly rate?
We reduce your non billable hours.
Growth without the growing pains
It’s what we do.
Improve your hourly rate
Something we hear a lot is how much time investigators work compared to how little they earn. Even when their billable rate is high.
This is often because the non-billable administration time takes a huge chunk out of their month – as high as 28 hours a month.
Admin time prevents you from more billable engagements and from meeting new potential clients to grow your business.
Polonious NOW helps investigators to free up 20 of these hours a month for further billables for as little as $49/month. This can lead to significantly more income, up to $7000 a year (depending on your clients rates of course!)
How much of your team’s month goes on administration and paperwork you can’t pay for? It may be worth trialling Polonious NOW to free this time for better things.
Win the big clients
Investigation excellence is one thing (and you’ve got plenty of that) but can you tick all the other boxes?
If you’re looking to grow and expand to meet the needs of a large client, you need to ensure you can meet their requirements for investigation quality, risk needs, privacy needs and security needs.
