Independent Consulting Services

Although flexible programs can be developed to suit the particular needs of the client, CRI most usually provides services in the following areas: Fees for Export Management and Export and Import services are usually paid through a percentage commission based on the value of the products sold. Marketing and New Product Development services are usually paid on a consulting basis, plus a negotiated percentage of royalties and/or licensing fees. Consulting activities are renumerated either through a monthly retainer, on a project basis, or a simple hourly basis depending on the types of services required. Please contact us for availability and further specific fee information.
