Ad hoc consulting

This service is typically recommended for companies that are faced with a change in requirements, a device with a new technology and/or clinical context, a new market or other situations where your team has not yet build up their routines.
Ad hoc consulting is only invoiced as actually used and there is no obligation to use any of it. It can be a resource that is just sitting there to be applied immediately, without having to go through the process of creating a budget and allocating a purchase order. Many regulatory teams have already discovered how valuable it can be to be able to get answers to burning questions quickly. The ad hoc consulting budget adds value immediately as it is used.
