  • Asset 1-216

    You own the intellectual property of any work we do for you and once the project is complete there are no extra fees. We will of course provide any adjustments, updates etc. you desire as a separate project.

  • Asset 1-201

    We provide solutions to many different industries and sizes of company, from startups to established businesses making us flexible to your needs.

We take great pride in our work and are delighted with the feedback we have received from our customers.

.

For each project, we firstly discuss your requirements at a top level and feedback a short summary of our understanding along with our recommendations, all of which is free of charge. This will also include our initial expectations as to the size and likely cost of the overall project.

We assign a consultant, who discusses in detail your project. This is the requirement capture stage and typically takes between 2 days to 2 weeks depending on the complexity of the project. From this a requirement capture document is produced for you to give feedback and make any changes needed. Once agreed this document is the foundation to provide you with a formal project cost and timeframe.

Once this is signed off, it’s all systems go as we get started on your project. We provide feedback meetings every 2 to 3 weeks where we demonstrate progress. Any changes identified in these meetings can be fed back into the project so that the project delivers an ideal solution – often requirements are only evident once a prototype can be seen and tried.

Once complete, we deliver the end product to you for testing and continue to do changes as required. Following ‘go live’ we are here to provide ongoing support and upgrades as you need.

We operate transparent fees; every minute is accounted for and you are only charged for the work we do. There are no upfront costs, billing is monthly for work completed

We are a small, capable software business consultancy offering flexibility and timely solutions . We have the resources to manage your project and the advantage of being small enough that your work is important to us. You can speak directly to our consultants, and the person that you meet when you discuss your project with us is the person who will be responsible for delivering it. You can phone them and meet them face to face as needed. Of course, there are other options – but consider these issues when choosing:

  • Do you have enough on-going work to justify hiring someone full time?
  • Are they going to be ongoing overheads?
  • How do you find the right person?
  • What are the recruitment costs?

Hiring the best talent is an extremely time-consuming and challenging process. Do you have the skills to measures capability?; We have evolved a recruitment methodology which ensures we hire the best staff available.

  • How can you communicate effectively with the developers, overcoming language barriers and time zone issues?
  • How will you know they will understand your needs?
  • How can you check that they have the right skills for the job?

Being UK based, there are no language or time zone barriers when communicating with our consultants. You can meet them face to face and see demonstrations of our work during the project giving you confidence that the project is moving in the right direction.

  • How do you know you’ve hired a good one? Doing so reliably is as difficult as hiring a permanent employee.
  • What happens when they move onto the next job? Will they still support you & Who looks after the project if they change roles?
  • How do you know you’ve hired who you think you have? Do they have the skills and experience they claim?
  • What happens when they move onto the next job? Will they still do support & who looks after the project if they move on? Is the code available and useable for others?

Our biggest asset is our staff – we put a lot of care and time into finding and selecting the right people. We look after our staff and our retention is excellent your projects are thoroughly documented and shared between different consultants, so you are well looked after in our company.

Our consultants are carefully chosen for their skillset, and you can meet them personally, face to face. When the project is delivered, our consultants are still available for support and ongoing changes. We also make sure we introduce other consultants to the project to ensure in the event of someone leaving, there is always someone familiar with your project.

  • Is your business important enough for them to take it seriously and use
    their best people?
  • Will the people you’re talking to in pre-sales be the people who actually
    work on it and do they understand your needs?
  • Will you end up talking to a helpdesk/sales function, who talks to a team
    leader, who talks to an offshore development team?
  • Will they simply outsource the work?
  • Day rates tend to be high.

We have no sales, pre-sales, or helpdesk function – the consultant you talk to will be the person responsible for implementing your project. All of our consultants are experienced, high quality developers that we take great care in recruiting. We do not outsource any work apart from graphic design and even then we work with a local company. Our day rates are typically half that of large companies and broadly similar to hiring a freelance consultant.
