👋 Say hi, let's get a conversation started.
Who benefits from a retainer engagement?
SMBs who don't need full-time staff
It’s a common case where SMBs have a website or custom software solution. They need to keep it up to date, running efficiently, and push through the occasional feature request. But, they don’t have the utilization or budget for a full staff of project manager(s), developers, QA, UX designer, and DevOps. That’s where we come in with fractional experts in each discipline.
Enterprises who need experts on call
Enterprises have a unique set of challenges. On one hand, they need to innovate to stay relevant, but on the other hand, they need to tread carefully when managing sensitive data and deploying customer-facing systems. That’s precisely why enterprise teams come to Curotec for system support and expert guidance when making important decisions with their tech stack.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
A support retainer is an engagement model that ensures you have experts across multiple disciplines available to you when you need them without having to hire an entire in-house team.
We’ll customize a bucket of hours based on your utilization needs. We may calibrate the bucket over time based on how much you’re using it.
We have designed our engagements with flexible utilization in mind. If you don’t use all your hours in one month, you won’t lose them; if you go over one month, you won’t get hit with an extra bill. We take the average utilization over a quarter and spread it out so you can burst up and down as your business needs ebb and flow.
No problem, we’ve got you covered! We’ll break that out into a separate project engagement and give you a quote for the work. You can continue using your normal support in parallel while we’re building out your larger project.
Just like our retainers are flexible to customization, so is our communication process. Some clients like direct access to our Jira ticket system, others like a private Slack channel, and the rest like good old-fashioned email or meetings. We adapt to your working style and manage the details behind the scenes so that you can work how you like.
