Those interested in finding a consultant can start the process at any time online by filling out a project briefing form, or via a phone conversation with a COMATCH account manager. Either way, it will only take about ten minutes before your request is ready to be run through the matching algorithm. “One of the things our customers really value is how fast we can connect them with a qualified consultant,” says Dr. Hardt. “Within just 48 hours our clients are given three to five matching consultant profiles to look through and in urgent cases we can make that happen even faster.”
