What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?
We generally offer software solutions for the following industries:
• Network marketing
• Food and delivery
Almost 65 to 70% of our clients are repetitive due to the high satisfaction rate because of our continued support and services. Not surprisingly, they turn to us for any new IT requirements.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing software.
We initiate our process by gathering the requirements of the clients via email, online, or through a call.
After proper interaction, we set the requirements for the new project prototype design, and the clients are allowed several iterative changes (Sprints) as per their needs.
Once approved, the designs are converted to dynamic business models with the help of experts in research and coding where all the features and functions of the model are taken into account.
We test the product until it is free from errors or bugs, and till it meets all the business requirements of the client. After the testing phase, the product is delivered to the client to make it live with post-production support and maintenance.
We determine the timeframe of all phases of the above project cycle by scheduling the deadline for each phase and by analyzing the technical feasibility of any requirement depending upon available resources, high-end challenges, and the timeline of the entire project.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of software?
Depending upon the design, complexity, functionalities, custom requirements of the software application, it may take 6 to 7 weeks to develop the front end and back end of a successful application.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right framework for developing software?
We need to analyze the scope of the work like custom requirements, design, target audience, cost, timeframe, the complexity involved, additional features or integrations, size and type of the database, client preference, etc., to select the right platform or framework for developing the software.
However, we assist the client in understanding the platforms or frameworks which is suitable for their current requirements and also proves beneficial to them for any future integrations or upgradations of their software application.
Which languages & frameworks do you prefer to use in development of software?
We offer extensive experience to build interactive & efficient open source web-based solutions for our global client base. We support custom Linux Apache, MySQL, PHP, JAVA (LAMP, LAMJ) programming & development solutions according to the custom requirements of clients. We also have a profound efficiency in mobile-centric applications and interfaces and a highly talented workforce of mobile developers dedicated to Android & iOS platforms. We help our clients to take full advantage of Open Source applications and frameworks.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of software?
We maintain transparency in our business process by providing the pricing strategy in the initial phase of the project. After gathering the project requirements and understanding the concept, we offer software requirement specifications to outline the project scope, design, platform, cost, and time analysis based on the resources involved.
We also support our clients in terms of integrating additional features to improve the functionality of the software. Our pricing model is based on the features, and supplemental plans opted for their project. We also provide a free demo of the software to make them understand and offer very flexible pricing model based on the selection of the plan and features.
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.)
The payment structure depends upon the client requirement. We use fixed cost for any basic plan required, pay per feature for an additional feature to be included in the project. We also follow pay per milestone depending upon the available resources and the complexity during each phase of the project.
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?
