I am a Founder & CEO of this company and my role involves heading the operations related to business and delivery with strategic planning and defining road-map for the future.
What was the idea behind starting this organization?
Initially, I commenced my journey as a business entrepreneur leading various business operations. However, since I belong to an IT background, the technology worm in my head kept biting me to transform my vision and a boost in IT Industry. The venture that began with merely 3 individuals has currently 300+ experts on the board.

Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a web app.
It is next to impossible to give an exact estimation or time frame to build any system without knowing the objective of developing the app / web app/project.
However, we have defined a process to identify the correct business model along with analyzing the requirement. We drill down the project requirement to micro level to find the correct estimation of man-hours with our business analyst and marketing team. This helps us to identify the proper price & technical team for team size as well as delivery time-frame.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a web app?
As per my opinion goes, this seems to be a very vague statement, as each front-end or back-end and even the app designing efforts are based on the following parameters:- Project features, Designing required, Technology stack required, The complexity of the concept, Third party integration and Request changes.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a web application?
When any client approaches our development team with this question, we always ask them to first identify who their target audience is and which are the specific geographical locations where they are planning to hit the market. For instance, if they are planning to release their app in USA or Canada, we suggest them to go with the iOS app because of the increased user base. For the Asian audience, an Android app is more worthy.
Which platform and technologies do you prefer to use in development of your web apps?
- Bootstrap 5
- HTML5 / CSS3
- Ruby And Rails
The mobile application can reap the benefits of both native as well as a hybrid platform.
So, definitely, it depends largely on the requirements of the client.
Primarily, we have to consider the budget estimate of the client & time-frame for completing the project. For your information, the native app development is little bit costlier than hybrid apps. However, the customer is free to choose the right combination of Native (Android / iOS) and even the hybrid app. We choose the accurate platform only after minutely analyzing the needs of the organization and conducting an in-depth research in this area.
Do you offer website design templates or customised website design, and do you have a responsive website design?
Yes, we offer both: website design templates & customized website design. We can build a website depending on the layout and theme selected by our client, we can also apply some changes if the client requires. At the same time, we can also create a new web design from scratch because we have an in-house UI/UX design team. We create a responsive website design from the beginning of the project.
Which Content Management System do you prefer to use (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal etc)?
We use Word Press; however, this also depends on the client requirements. For example, if the project of the client is not so generic we build an admin panel of content management system.
Do you provide website maintenance services?
Yes, we have an internal dev ops engineer who is responsible for deployment, configuration, optimization, and analysis. So, all the services which are related to website maintenance are taken care of appropriately.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a web application?
We use agile methodology so we split our project into sprints and usually, we have a sprint of two weeks. The cost of a web application mainly depends on the number of hours and other resources invested by our developers and other participants in a sprint to develop the web application.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
We follow two pricing models :- One is Fixed Price model and another is Pay per hour or Per DayModel or Pay per Milestone.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
Yes, we usually take smaller projects on fixed price basis and the minimum budget decided for a sprint is 1750 USD.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The minimum price of the project we did in the year 2018 is fifteen hundred dollars and the maximum is fifty thousand dollars.
