Our Project Assessment and Quotation Process
Perhaps you have an extremely unique idea for the invention and development of a mobile app that is not currently out in the marketplace yet and you want to have it developed to your own specifications and maintain ownership of the application, copyrights, and all related intellectual property.
We follow a simple 3-step process to assess your project and provide you with a time and cost estimate for taking your app from concept to reality. We follow this process for inquires from established companies or new ventures that have secured their initial funding.
Step 1: We understand your high-level requirements
You will need to describe the functionality of the app in your own words. We will have a phone conference with you in order to get a clear understanding of your high-level requirements and we may exchange one or more emails afterwards. We will then document our understanding of your requirements and send it to you for confirmation.
Step 2: We provide you a with a cost estimate
We will send you an estimate of the costs required to implement your app. Many factors will go into our costing equation: whether your app is a stand-alone app or has a server component, whether it is a native app or web app, what are the target mobile platform(s), whether we can implement the app using standard user interface elements of the target platform and the extent to which we need to integrate the solution with back office systems or other websites.
Step 3: We provide you a formal proposal
If you inform us that your budget can accommodate our estimate, we will prepare a detailed proposal that describes the proposed services and deliverables. The proposal also includes a time estimate and a firm quotation for implementing your app. For app development services, we use mostly a fixed-fee model. For consulting services, our quotes can be either time-based or fixed-fee quotes.
