I'm not sure what specific inquiry you were intending to make. However, based on other's comments, I'd have to say I think the concern that running EOS and committing to the Meeting Pulse would negatively impact billable hours is somewhat unfounded. It assumes that people are 100% effective in the use of their time during normal working hours to feed the company's bottom line.

I experienced this first hand too as an EOS client before becoming an implementer. Feel free to contact me directly to go into more detail.
