3. Please describe the operational structure of your company- from the moment a client walks in, to the product deployment.
Once a client reaches for app or web development, we request to complete the initial formality by signing an NDA to give an assurance on data security and confidentiality. Soon as we complete the initial process, Our Business Analyst/Product Consultant schedule an online or one to one meeting with client to discuss the product idea.
Based on the discussion and meeting (One to one or E-meeting), we schedule an internal meeting to analyze the scope/product idea and based on brainstorming and discussion, we design first level scope of development plan along with features list, high level milestone details and team management. Once it gets approved by project manager, we share with client to review our project understanding.
If we get any feedback or correction, we shall redesign the plan and get an approval. Once we get a confirmation, we kick-off the project and complete the initial formality to start the designing phase.
To set up the transparent and smooth process, we share clear project agreement along with milestone release date, along with Payment milestones.
4. What engagement models do you offer? How should a client choose?
We have flexible development model and payment structure. Fixed Cost Development with the Pay Per Milestone, which gives full assurance to clients that they are paying for what they have received. Our many clients work on a Dedicated model with having monthly billing cycling.
If client has fixed scope and timeline, we recommend and prefer work on Fixed cost model; however if client likes to work on on-going base, we suggest to have Dedicated model for better performance and management.
