Why Outsource?

Outsourcing can be a valuable tool even to those who have an in-house drafting team. At times, these in-house teams become overwhelmed. By bringing in a contractor, these companies are able to supplement their workforce with experienced professionals who will deliver accurate, correct work without the need for close supervision.

Why is outsourcing cost-effective?

  • There are no overhead costs—you only pay the agreed-upon fee for the agreed-upon work.

  • There are no delays. Our reputation relies on delivering exactly what you need on time and error-free.

  • You do not have to pay for training or provide benefits of any kind.

  • There are no payroll taxes to calculate or pay.

  • Our services are focused on exactly what you need when you need it. We supplement your in-house team in whatever way you require.

  • We are not here to replace your in-house team. We’re here to provide the extra help you need to avoid over-working your team, missing deadlines, or passing up lucrative projects due to a lack of manpower.

Our Pricing

When looking at our prices, it’s important to remember that outsourcing cannot be directly compared to paying an employee due to several reasons. First, you pay only the contracted amount. There are no additional costs such as insurance, vacation pay, or other benefits. Second, you pay no employee taxes or contribute to any retirement plan. Third, you do not have to provide workspace, equipment, training, or any other indirect cost associated with hiring an employee.

Outsourcing prices are often determined in one of three different ways:

Hourly: These projects generally have a maximum budget or number of hours. We bill only for the number of hours spent on the project. You know what your maximum costs will be, though often our costs come in below that amount.

Per-Project: At other times, it may be more cost-effective to pay on a per-project basis. These rates are calculated based on the total square footage of the project, its complexity, the quality of the information provided and the scope of services required.

Bulk Hours: For those who are in need of services on an annual basis, our bulk hour pricing may be the best option. It is the most cost-effective pricing we offer. In essence, Stone Details become your in-house drafting team.
