Rodney Koop talks to the contractors

The New Flat Rate founder and CEO Rodney Koop spoke about harnessing the billable hour at two meetings of the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing of Oklahoma (MEPO), a trade organization for Oklahoma’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors.
Koop’s presentations to the Oklahoma City and Tulsa chapters on March 6 and 7, respectively, helped attendees understand how to utilize their billable hour to increase profit. Both sessions, titled “Getting Paid What You’re Worth,” covered the following topics:
• How to take the mystery out of running a business on today’s numbers instead of yesterday’s guesses.
• 3 critical numbers business owners must watch
• How to identify a plan to improve profitability based on proper pricing strategies
• The key to unlock the common billable hour calculator and get powerful information to run your business the right way
Dozens of contractors from Oklahoma’s two largest cities attended the presentations. More information about MEPO can be found at, while more info about The New Flat Rate can be found at
