Why Flat-rate and why P3?

Productivity

A Flat-rate pricing model is when a contractor charges flat fees for products and/or services. One of the rewards is productivity. When a small business is paid a flat rate for a service, it can make more money by performing more services in a shorter amount of time. Owners can spend their time focusing on ways to deliver as much value as possible, quickly and efficiently.  Hourly pricing for services do not reward productivity: a contractor that charges by the hour earns the same amount for a day of work regardless of how efficiently the job was performed. In fact, in some cases a job may be performed less expediently as a result of hourly billing.

Transparency

Another advantage of a flat-rate pricing model is that flat fees are known up-front. Being transparent and easy for customers to understand is a big win. For instance, there is no grey area. Customers can determine easily whether they can afford the service or not. With hourly rates, customers have to “guess” or approximate the cost – and may end up owing more than they expect, which can potentially lead to unhappy customers, or an equal concern of collecting the payment for services they may not be able to afford.
