Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a web app.
When it comes to developing a web application, it is very important for us to know the complete (or as much as possible) specifications of the proposed application. Only then we can estimate the most appropriate time frame for the delivery.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a web app?
That is completely subjective. The larger the application, the greater the time it takes to develop front-end and back-end of a web application. If we talk about an average sized web app, it ranges between 120-150 hours for front-end and 200-250 hours for back-end development.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a web application?
While selecting the right platform for any application, we take into consideration the following:
- Does the selected platform serve all aspects of the proposed application?
- What is the overall complexity of the app?
- What would be the user base?
- What would the expected traffic on the application?
- What is the planned budget for developing the application? Some technologies cost more than others.
Which platform and technologies do you prefer to use in the development of your web apps?
Redian Software prefers to work with the latest technologies for developing web and mobile applications. Below are some of the technologies which we use these days-
- React.js and React Native
- Ruby on Rails and many others
Do you offer website design templates or customised website design, and do you have a responsive website design?
Redian Software has established as a custom web application development company. We mostly are working on custom website design and development. We also offer responsive design. It is imperative for us to follow the latest trends and methods used in the software development industry to stay ahead of our competitors.
Which Content Management System do you prefer to use (Wordpress, Jumla, Drupal etc)?
We have a specialized team of Drupal developers with an average experience of 5+ years. We have executed some good projects using Drupal CMS including projects for the world’s largest breweries named AbInBev.
Do you provide website maintenance services?
Yes, we do provide website maintenance services.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a web application?
Below are a few factors that help us in determining the cost of any given web or mobile application:
- The complexity of the project
- Required skill set
- Required level of expertise
- GTM date (the closer the date, higher the number of resources we would need to put in order to meet the deadlines).
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.)
Redian Software prefers to work in either the Time & Material model or dedicated resource model of the engagement. It gives our clients complete flexibility in terms of features development, execution processes, and timeline.
However, sometimes we also work in the fixed-cost model when the product specifications are complete and thorough.
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?
Redian Software has executed projects of a varying budget. We have worked on projects worth USD $2000 as well as projects worth tens of thousand dollars.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The smallest project that we have done this year (2018) was worth USD $12500 and the biggest project this year was worth over USD $200,000.
