Charging For VMS And Analytics Installation?

We recently installed Milestone with the LPR module at several locations for a client. Admittedly, it has been a learning experience for us, being new to Milestone. While we have installed LPR cameras numerous times, they were always used so that tags could be read in playback, not for any type of recognition .

Installing the cameras, getting the angles right so Milestone would read the tags, etc has taken quite some time.

Do you typically charge a flat fee or do you include so many hours and charge for hours after that? On some of these sites all we did was install the LPR camera and Milestone, so its not like there was a bigger project and we could just absorb the cost.

Thanks
