We are typically able to provide 3 hours per day on a certain project and are able to respond to emails once in 24 hours. If your project requires more time + attention, may be it is a Rush job.
Once the project begins we will assign a dedicated project manager who will coordinate between you and our development team, oversee the overall project, and facilitate all project needs. Besides being your first point of contact, your PM will also provide regular project updates, maintain on-going communication, and schedule meetings for any adjustments needed. You will be able to communicate through Skype, email, or Google Meet. Our PM hours are billed at the same rate, $35 per hour.
Depending on the complexity of the project we would normally allocate 15% – 20% of hours to project management. However, this estimate is by no means accurate as PM hours will totally depend on your additional requests, questions, or any other assistance you will require during the project. You will be able to keep track of all hours spent by our team through Hubstaff which is seamlessly integrated with Basecamp, our PM tool.
If you are trying to build a marketplace, a large and complex Ecommerce website or your website is going to act like a web application, your project qualifies as a large project. For these projects, we are not able to provide proposals for free and will charge at our standard rates for the time we spent researching your requirements and preparing your proposal. We will still spare 2-4 hours to give you a chance to see if we are a good fit.
It will always include what work we will do for you with an explanation of the solutions taken to meet your requirements. It will include assumptions and dependencies, breakdown of the work with estimated hours, a delivery schedule and the schedule of payments. In other words, you can use this proposal as a functional document for your project.
As a general rule we are able to spend up to 2 hours. Please note that we reserve the right to determine the number of hours we spend on requirement analysis.
We are able to provide one-on-one consultation sessions with one of our experts through Skype. These sessions are generally used for larger projects, when you are unsure about the use of a certain plugin or need advice in planning the projects.
Documentation varies greatly depending on the project, your experience with the platform and the level of customization we have carried out. A full turn key customized CMS requires a significant amount of document in comparison with a simple custom add on. Your exact needs in this area would be identified at the start of the project. The time spent on preparing the documentation manuals (text, videos, screenshots, one-on-one walk through) is billed and you are able to choose whichever way you would prefer to receive the instructions.
As a rule, no. Of course there are always exceptions and we are able to provide rush jobs if prior notice is provided.
Your involvement is essential to a successful project but it does vary. Gathering requirements and testing / reviewing our work are the most intensive phases and we would advise you on how much time to set aside.
Unanticipated events do occur so we would work closely with you to find the best solution even if that solution is an exit strategy. Please note that we are only able to hold off for up to 60 days.
That is not unusual in an web project so we have a tried and tested change control process. We would discuss in detail the new requirements, review the impact on existing requirements and estimate the work involved in delivering the requirement.
You can hold them in credit and they can be used for up to 6 months.
We provide real-time tracking for the hours our developers spend on your projects using hubstaff. Hubstaff allows us to track hours accurately and in real time. You will love the transparency.

Any designs or documentation that helps us understand your requirements are greatly received. You can attach them in your initial email or, better still, send us the links to them if they are stored online. Please note that while we will do our best to study your project briefs in the first 1-2 hours without any charges, we may request you to purchase a small block of hours if it requires more time.
We do offer a complete refund on your first invoice if you are not satisfied with our services. The refund can be requested in the first 15 days of paying the invoice. Refunds can only be provided for up to 5 hour. What this means is, if you are skeptical about trying us out, start off with a 5-hour block and small task.
