NBS Consulting

NBS Consulting Services help integrate tried-and-true Northbridge tools and skills into your business.

In 2010, our staff began to work on projects outside Second Life. Since then, we were able to mix our experiences between real life and Second Life to help all sizes of businesses thrive in both. Over the past 8 years, we've done everything from simple proofreading to massive telecommunication installations. Here's what we're best at:

Database Management

If it's big data, we're big into it. We can help you set up any size database and manage it going forward. We work with Oracle RDBMS, MySQL, and MongoDB.

Accounting Systems

We get it - you didn't like math. That's why we offer accounting for self-employed individuals and small businesses. We can help prepare your taxes, too!

Web Development

If you're still running on word-of-mouth, we can set up a website for you. We can also set up web stores, payment processing, and even food delivery.

Proofreading & Editing

Sometimes you just want a second set of eyes. We offer our editing services at low per-word rates. We can even help you format your work for publishing.

If your project doesn't fit into one of the above categories, that's fine! Our rule is pretty simple: if it involves computers, we're interested. For certain projects, such as graphic design, if it doesn't fit neatly into our skill set, we'll get you in touch with another NTBI Group affiliate that can work with you directly. But if it involves both, we can work together, too!

How much does it cost?

For technical consulting services, we'll work with you to develop a quote that fits your budget, but our starting hourly rate is generally around $50 per hour. Depending on your project, we can release the full intellectual property rights to you once the final payment is complete. For hardware, we usually offer a 90-day warranty on installation.

For proofreading & editing, our rates range from $2-6 per 250 words, depending on your needs, with a minimum of 1000 words. Depending on font selection, spacing, and layout, one single-spaced 8.5x11" page is about 600-800 words. We typically deliver a Word file with tracked changes. For large or ongoing projects, our pricing structure is flexible.

How does it work?

Just send us an email to get started. Once we're both satisifed on the project's scope, we'll let you know the estimated price or rates. If you're satisfied, we'll start working and invoice you as scheduled. We're open to non-disclosure agreements, but please give us a rough idea of what you'll need first!

At this time, due to scheduling constraints, we are only able to offer proofreading & editing services for new clients.

If you prefer an in-person meeting, we can visit you anywhere in the New York metropolitan area for a free initial consultation.
