We mitigate this risk by continuously delivering product to you so it’s not a surprise at the end to either you or us :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Is custom development right for me?

Are you looking to create new, first-in-the-market type applications? Will your app be breaking new ground and not making much use of existing IP? Is your current scope uncertain?

If you answer yes to some or all of these questions, then chances are custom development is the right fit for you.

Do you provide fixed priced quotes?

Yes we do. The caveat is that we don’t provide fixed priced and scope quotes. All our projects involve a moving target scope. This means that the scope always changes throughout the project. As partners, we work together to create and define what the end product will look like. Because of this, it’s hard to say what features will be in the end product as the project evolves. This means that although the price is fixed we don’t lock down the features. We can add and remove features as we develop the project.

How much does a typical project cost?

Due to the inherent lack of predictability in most of our projects, we don’t give ballpark figures without first having a discussion around what your vision and goals are for the project. 

We’re afraid you’re going to think these are firm numbers that you can guarantee will stay the same. We don’t want you to be disappointed when it turns out your project is on the complex side of the scale when you thought it was on the simple side.

Contact us and we’ll help you figure out how to get what you want for a price tag you can afford.

What technologies do you use for building web and mobile apps?

We use angular and nodejs (typescript + hapi framework + mysql + sometimes redis). We make use of open source libraries and frameworks (e.g. Ionic) whenever we think it’ll speed up development and not compromise future scalability and maintenance.

What if we decide we want to tweak the system three months after it’s finished?

We’re always just a phone call or an email away, and we’re always happy to help our clients whether or not we’re currently under contract with them. If you’d like us to make your case a time-sensitive priority, you may want to sign up for one of our support packages so that we can move you to the top of the list.

Should we develop our app for Android or iPhone first?

This depends pretty heavily on the target user. Some of our clients’ intended users heavily favour one platform. 

That said, the rise of HTML5 has seen hybrid mobile apps gaining a lot of traction. A hybrid app is programmed in web code wrapped around native app code – which, in non-tech speak, means you can develop a single app that will be viewable on multiple platforms. Hybrid apps drastically cut down on costs and development time, but not every app is simple enough to develop this way. If you let us know you’d like to develop the app for more than one platform, we can figure out the most cost-effective way to develop your solution for all your users.
