Lead Time Guide

Lead time is the duration from the time we receive the task up to the time of its completion and delivery to you. Being mindful of the lead time for a particular type of task ensures that you will receive the expected outputs from 8point8 on time.
 
We're excited to help you budget your time with the tasks. Here is a lead time guide you can turn to when assigning tasks to the team.

Please also note that 8point8 works on your tasks during our business hours which are from Monday to Friday 6 AM - 6 PM (Philippine Time) or 6 PM Sunday - 6 AM Friday (Eastern Time, USA). We look forward to working on your tasks!
