How long does a project take to develop?

Every project is different. Depending on scope we deliver the first version within 6-12 weeks of an agreed scope. We recommend that our clients who have tight deadlines focus on quick wins as a first phase and then extend on functionality after that. Once MVPs are build we deliver a solid application with all the key functions required.

How do you determine what goes into project phases?

The phases of project are agreed with you upfront in a Statement of Work. When applications are pressing to fix business needs, we work with you to prioritise features. Time and budget also help shape how work is phased.

Will I be able to see the project as it develops?

Yes. You are evolved from the start. You are involved in the scoping process, sign off on project plans, see wireframes, input on mockups, sign off on polished designs and see the application prototypes. Throughout the development process you will see your project evolve while it's hosted on our development servers.

What does a software project cost?

Software projects vary in price from $20 000 to millions of dollars. While we are not in the million dollar market, our ideal project is around $50000 - $100 000 which can be delivered in a rapid timeframe.
When you have clear goals, are prepared to talk money and work within constraints - it's easy for us to help you come up with the best strategy..
