We understand small businesses.  While a large company may have full time employees to perform all aspects of system or database setup, software development, and maintenance activities, a small company needs these services infrequently and may not have the resources to perform them.  Ross Sampson Consulting specializes in filling that gap with temporary skilled resources.

Our work includes tasks of varying scope for small to medium-sized companies. so we offer a variety of contract options.  Depending on the work involved, services are available on a project basis, a consulting basis, or a retainer basis.  Billing terms are net 7 days on all contracts.  A few examples are listed below:
