We specialize in creating custom application development, using the Microsoft technology stack including .NET (C#) and SQL Server . We have experience with windows, web and service based applications. As a Microsoft Partner we are provided access to the most current technologies which we can leverage when creating your custom application.
We follow a no-hassle pricing process for all custom applications which involves the creation of a detailed project specification and fixed project pricing to ensure that no surprises are encountered during the development process. All custom applications are billed at our standard rate of $140 per hour.
One key factor that separates us from the competition is that by default code ownership is that of the clients, we do not try to charge more for source, or to tie customers to us.
Below is a detailed explanation of our development process. Please contact us if you have any questions.
We approach all custom application development projects using a very specific process, starting from the initial client contact. Below is an outline of the general process that occurs when working with us to create an application. Please keep in mind that we follow this process with all projects however the time spent on each step will vary depending on the scope and complexity of the desired solution.
Step 1 - Client Request
The entire process starts with your request for a custom application to meet a specific business need. The more information you can provide at this time the more smoothly we can progress through the project process.
Step 2 - Clarification of Request
As we start to translate your request for a custom application into a technical specification we will ask for clarification on any items that we do not fully understand.
Step 3 - Delivery of Specification and Proposal
After receiving and translating the requirements, we will deliver a formal project specification including a detailed plan of completion and full details regarding costs. This is a fixed cost estimate and there is no obligation to continue with the project at this time. All of the previous services are completed at no cost to you.
Step 4 - Receipt of Down Payment and Establishment of Project Site
If you elect to continue with our services we require a 50% down payment on the total cost of implementation. As you are arranging the down payment we will create a project on our BaseCamp website which will be used for all future communication. This will allow us to keep a record of communication and easily allow files to be transferred between parties.
Step 5 - Initial Review
After the agreed upon development time we will provide you with a version of the application for testing. At this time you will review it for completeness and functionality. This version will have a time restriction on usage.
Step 6 - Modifications (if needed)
If any issues were identified during step 5 of the process, modifications will be completed and the project will return to step 5 for another review.
Step 7 - Final Payment and Delivery
After the application has been tested to meet your needs and final payment has been received, the final installation package will be delivered which will be set up to deploy to a production environment.
