Why We Cost Less

Our comparison here represents a somewhat typical list of services during a given month that may be needed by a small to medium sized company and what costs look like depending on which direction you might go: hiring a W2 employee, large consulting agency, or working with SumoLab.

SumoLab Monthly Managed Services

Our entire team works remotely. This means we have no high-cost office space which ultimately makes our overhead costs extremely low. This allows us to keep our prices low. We have the same talent as the large agencies but at a fraction of the cost.

In addition you have minimal exposure to contracts and/or commitments. And, you have the added benefit of not only an administrator, but what if you need three administrators? This allows you to scale. You’ll also have access to business analysts, developers, architects, and solution professionals.

It’s all about saving money, and having flexibility to scale.

Typical Technology Consultancy

Medium to large consulting agencies have extremely large overhead. Office space, sometimes in multiple locations. Employees that come with salaries, medical, dental, and 401k benefits, including vacation pay, etc. They have to pay for all of these costs in their fees.

This means you’ll ultimately pay for that to the tune of $225 – $350 per hour for services.

W2 Employee

“In-House” employees do have some advantages. But, they also require medical, dental, vision, and 401k benefits, along with PTO and holidays.

Plus you are making a long-term commitment to an employee which can last years.
