Consulting Fees: Consulting fees are custom tailored to individual dealer organizations. Pricing for consulting services are based on the amount of analysis,preparation, development, and onsite time required to obtain the desired results. All estimates are can be obtained on request after an initial interview.
Expenses: Costs for travel, lodging, local transportation and per Diem are customarily not included in the consulting fees quoted. Estimates for these expenses can be provided based on the mutually agreed timeline and program inclusions. These fees can be quoted as part of the program package if desired.
Payment Terms: 30% of the session costs are normally due in advance. The remainder will be invoiced after the session, or on a progress payment timeline. Invoices are due on receipt. Major credit cards are accepted, but our preference is for direct billing. Please include a purchase order number for billing if this is required.
Non-Disclosure: RDS will issue a Non-Disclosure prior to any information changing hands. This protects all clients, as all information provided to RDS by the dealership will be held in strictest confidence. RDS does not require a reciprocal non-disclosure, as all RDS programs are protected by copyright.
Consulting Contract: RDS will issue a standard consulting contract for all clients clearly explaining the program inclusions, timelines, and costs. RDS utilizes Docusign.com that allows for digital signatures to be utilized. RDS routinely proposes programs to include a flat rate fee. These programs are not subject to hourly billing.
