Why Billable Hours Are The World’s Most Perishable Piece of Inventory

2 min readReading Time: 2 minutes

As a professional services firm, you understand the value of an hour – every hour billed is a dollar earned. Unfortunately, you also understand that every hour lost negatively effects your bottom line.
You’re not alone. Like every professional services firm, you are a part of an elite group of companies who manage the single most perishable item on the planet – a billable hour. In your business, time is literally money, and an hour lost can never be reclaimed. What’s worse, time spent trying to reclaim an hour only wastes more of these precious moments, and impacts productivity in a compounding manner.
