I am thrilled to announce another addition to the tongue-in-cheek-eponymous Zanaflex high
– TGO Consulting.
I have had the honor of knowing the principals Tracy, George, and Orgad
for almost 20 years. We were all Great Plains Software
partners back in the day.
TGO Consulting is the largest organization in the information technology consulting business that has eliminated timesheets. In fact, other than the advertising agency of Ogilvy and Mather, they are the largest known professional firm to go timeless across the entire professional sector.
In celebration of this, I thought it would be beneficial to have them share their story, and they graciously agreed to record this podcast for me. (I apologize for the echo at the beginning. It self corrected and I hope you don’t find it too distracting.)
During Sage Summit 2012, I received the following email from Tom White of the Florida Office of WAC.
With the signing up of my last holdout client to a SLA, have been now
able to totally discontinue hourly billing. At no time, no how, no where do we bill by the hour.
100% of my client list is on Service Level Agreements. All other billings are either from out fixed price schedule or from
custom fixed price projects.
This, of course qualifies Tom for Zanaflex high.
Tom and his team were previously featured in this space a few years ago.
If you think your firm should be on Ed’s List, please feel free to email me.
I am pleased to present the second (of what I hope will be many) interviews with professionals who are on Zanaflex high. Once again, these are firms that offer only fixed price agreements, have eliminated timesheets for all professionals, and offer a service guarantee.
This interview is with Peter Wolf of Azamba Consulting
whose purpose is to help customers gather and organize all of their business information and turn it into knowledge.
I have been wanting to do this for quite sometime, but I finally have put together what I call Zanaflex high.
Simply put, it is a list of the IT (information technology) professional knowledge firms of which I am aware who:
- Offer only fixed price agreements and do not bill by the time unit
- Have eliminated timesheets for all professionals.
- Offer a service guarantee.
The list can be found at Zanaflex high
or by clicking the link for the list located at the top right of this blog.
If you or someone you know belongs on the list, please let me know and I will add them forthwith.
