It's a 3 step thing-very easy! We discuss all your business needs over a video meeting and run them by our mega-talented and technically creative developers and product managers. We get back to you with a rough time estimation based on your initial specs within a couple of days. If all terms and conditions are met, we start working on the actual development, on the date we agree upon.
The idea makes for 50% of the project and we make for the rest. So basically if you can explain your idea and your business vision to us, we can work together on a road map and an action plan. We'll recommend technologies and explain how each benefits your project. And we can also help out with planning the development process, to ensure faster time-to- market AND the best usage of your budget.
When taking up fresh start-up ideas we work with quick iterations, believe in early and frequent releases and follow the Agile principles. If your product is at a point where it requires a larger team, then our Product Managers will recommend using either SCRUM or KANBAN, depending on the specific nature of the product.
Our customers are 90% startups see http://www.townrally.com/, thus we understand that in order for you to build a successful business, we need to be involved, committed and in for the long run. We also know that faster time-to- market and responding to user demand are key factors for startups, therefore we work with quick iterations, believe in early and frequent releases and follow the Agile principles.
Our back-end team has over 6 years experience in working with a very large range of PHP frameworks, such as CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Yii, Zend, Laravel, Symfony, as well as designing and optimizing large traffic SQL databases (MySQL and PostgreSQL). Recently we have been focusing on building faster, leaner back-ends with the use of the latest top notch technologies, such as NodeJS and MongoDB.
This depends on your needs and the workload involved. If you are comfortable with a part time (20 hours/week for instance) and up to a full time (40 hours/week) pace, then a developer should suffice. At the same time, if you are looking at more than a 40 hours a week workload, then a team would be most suitable for you. In this case, one of the developers in the team would act as lead developer and would be your contact person throughout the whole development process. And, of course, an assigned Account Manager will also be there to answer all of your administrative questions and assist you in various matters.
When getting new people to join our team, we don't ask them for their resumes and, thus, do not keep any. We only request to see their work and discuss their coding experience, then we make sure they're passionate about what they do, that they're creative and that they have the "spark", over a series of interviews. You can do the same, as we are available for preliminary Skype meetings with you.
We prefer to work on an hourly basis, so as to avoid the common pitfall in which over 70% of software projects fail: the constant battle between the initially agreed price and the changing of specifications. And the catch is that you get to pay only for the actual work that has been done for your project and not an overrated package price.
Since we are a web development company, we prefer to let the design specialists work their magic. So, if you are also looking to have a complex identity built, or high-end wireframes designed, we would recommend working with a specialist in this area, before starting the actual development process. If you have difficulties finding a talented designer we can happily recommend someone from our trusted collaborators' network.
You should keep in mind that cheaper is not always better. You may pay a smaller price now BUT, in the
long run, it will cost you so much more! How many times have you heard "They promised 3 weeks about
3 months ago"? We've come across this refrain quite a few times during the last few years. Some of our
current, ongoing customers were such victims of the "cheaper" illusion when we took their projects in.
What you need is efficient - the best balance you can find between price, duration and quality - the right
balance for you, of course.
If you have any further questions for us, we'll be happy to help. Just use our form or the chatbox on your bottom right-hand side.
