Seriously, the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the global economy. Supply chains are snarled, energy costs are through the roof and your people are struggling to keep up. They all want more money, but profit margins are already being squeezed.
And don't even get me started on interest rates...
We are seeing it every day. Businesses that have thrived for decades are closing up shop in cities and towns all over the world. They just cannot find a way to keep up with the accelerating pace of change.
The saddest part is that many of the shuttered businesses didn't need to end this way.
My name is Will. I'm a full stack systems developer specializing in refactoring business processes to work more efficiently using low cost computer technology.
In other words, I help leaders like you get more done with fewer people, which is exactly what is needed right now.
New clients typically call me, Will Carmen at +1 (813) 344-5788 for a free consultation wherein we can discuss the broad contours of the situation and what Vertex Trading Systems can do to improve the bottom line. How things evolve after that will depend on the nature of the project, but generally an agreement outlining the scope of work and the compensation details is signed, non-disclosure agreements are traded, and a 10-20% deposit is paid to get things moving forward. The balance is due on delivery of the completed solution.
Well, let's start with the fact that I have many years of TCP/IP, C++, PHP, HTML and SQL coding experience. More importantly, running my own firms that provide outsourced business and technology services has given me deep knowledge of all the business aspects like accounting, legal, finance, and marketing as well. (Check out my CV here).
Real talk, the skill set I bring to the table is incredibly useful and is in high demand. I have the privilege of choosing my clients. The money is important, but it isn't the only consideration. One example of this is the fact that I have a dog. My dog is with me 24/7. If you want me in your office, the dog comes too.
At this point you're probably thinking this all sounds rather expensive, and in some sense it is, but it really depends how you look at it. In terms of per skull, or full-time median income employee, which would no longer need be paid after deploying the service, we're talking pennies on the dollar.
That said, my base rate is $1000 per day, billed via invoice. I generally prefer to work on projects with clearly defined deliverables and prices negotiated in advance. Discounts are available for larger projects.
