VIP Prepaid Service Hours / Retainer

The VIP Prepaid Service Hours are a great way to retain consulting services when you need help on a regular basis without a monthly contract. This option eliminates the paperwork and billing hassles, so the focus and effort can be on your projects and support issues.

Service blocks are purchased in advance, similar to a retainer. Prepaid blocks are entered into our ticketing/billing system and are valid for up to two years from the purchase date. For any services or work completed, we simply deduct the time from the remaining block balance. Prepaid hours can be used for virtually any service we typically provide, including projects, upgrades, migrations, outage support, general server issues, patches, planning and strategy, and more.

  • Access to Marvin directly 24×7 with no after hours penalty.
  • Handle complex projects such as upgrades, patches, or migrations.
  • Free up your IT staff for other projects.
  • Use Marvin as an escalation channel for critical support and outages.
  • $30 / hour discount off Time and Materials rate.

Onsite Projects / Global Services

It's true that many projects and services can be performed remotely. However, with certain projects, there can be advantages to having an on-site engineer.  Sometimes you just need someone onsite and in-person to take care of things and take the project from start to finish.

If the nature of your project is such that you'd be more comfortable if I was onsite, I offer on-site services anywhere in the world at a fixed daily rate of $2500 per project day.

Please contact Marvin to discuss your project schedule, timeline, and number of days on-site before purchasing. This ensures that we set realistic expectations for project goals and timelines.

The flat daily rate does not include travel expenses. I simply pass through the expense of customary and reasonable travel costs at the end of the project. These generally include airfare, hotel, transportation, and any parking fees or tolls.
