Having a budget is fine providing it is realistic for the services and outcomes we provide.
We are never going to be cost competitive with off-the-rack retailers. We provide a premium service and products.
If your budget is realistic we will endeavour to work within it and provide the best performance for that budget. Our process is the same but we will limit options to those components we know we can fit in your budget.
This does not always mean a degradation in performance as it may be that the components you choose as providing the best value may also provide the best performance.
