It’s another typical day in the life of a management consultant: waiting in an airport on the way to No Name City, Middle America for an exciting week of customer interviews and product checks for clients.
According to the stats, the average consultant works 12 hour days and travels anywhere from 25 – 75% of the time. At bigger firms, associates can expect to travel 50 – 75%. Translation: a typical consultant spends as many as 39 weeks a year on the road.
With grinding schedules and tight client deadlines, it’s no wonder that management consultants are turning to Gigwalk’s mobile army to reduce travel, cut costs, and deliver client projects faster. Quality of life is better, clients are happier, and project margins go up. Contact us today to get started with Gigwalk, or read on to learn how we can help.
