Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing software.

Our Expert team goes through Discovery Phase, where they analyze the business requirements and provide ideas & suggestions.

How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of software?
The frontend consumes around 25 to 30% of the overall project time while the rest is on the backend. Providing better UX/UI is our prime motto for which we rely on our experienced team. Be it software or mobile application or even an IoT product; User Experience plays an equally important role as backend.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right framework for developing software?
While selecting the right framework, the nature of the project plays a vital role. It starts from selecting Server or serverless architecture.

Mainly, The technologies are selected based upon the nature of the project.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of the software?
