We provide our services either on an hourly or contract basis. See the Platform & Rates page for more information and don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or would like a quote.

Do I need I need a Zoom account to join online sessions?

No. When you join the session you'll be prompted to download the free Zoom app. 

On a side note, if you want to use Zoom for your own meetings, you can create a free Zoom account. With a free Zoom account you can have unlimited one-on-one meetings. Group meetings are limited to 40 minutes. To remove this restriction and to gain access to more features, upgrade to one of their paid plans.

Some online sessions can be recorded and shared with you and your team. Additional costs may apply and recordings are for internal use only.

Please let us know in advance if you'd like a recording of your session.

Please share a summary of your product and why you think it would be a good addition to Technically Simple's approved product list.

We're very selective about products and services that we endorse and many are ones we use in house.
