Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a web app.
The Development of web app has many steps, like:
• Prototype Design
• App Design
• Backend Development
• API or Web Service Development
• Design Implementation & Coding
• Beta Launch
• Quality Test
• Live on Production
Timeframe always depends upon how much time each step is going to take; mainly it depends upon the complete flow and requirements of the app.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a web app?
It totally depends upon Project Specification and Designs. It can be given only after reviewing complete functionality requirements and design specification. We calculate an estimate depending on how many hours it will take, and we divide hours as per each step.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a web application?
Many parameters need to be considered before selecting the right platform for a web application like technical specifications, flow of web application, number of users, target audience, budget, purpose of the web application, security, speed, and performance.
Which platform and technologies do you prefer to use in development of your web apps?
It depends upon project specification mainly; we can work as per client preferences as well. If the client wants to go with a specific platform, we are happy to go with that. We can provide our suggestions as well. We do select the platform as per all the work specifications and target users.
We work with different technologies and CMS/frameworks. Some of them are mentioned as follow:
Do you offer website design templates or customised website design, and do you have a responsive website design?
We do offer all. We offer website design, redesign, CMS (Content Management System), CSS web design, open source e-commerce websites, personal web pages, custom template design, open source shopping carts, blogs, custom web design, website maintenance, responsive websites, mobile websites, Landing Pages, etc.
Which Content Management System do you prefer to use (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal etc)?
We do work on all popular Content Management System including Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, Opencart, Shopify, etc. We have worked with all the CMS over the years; we prefer WordPress the most due to high requirements in the market.
Do you provide website maintenance services?
Yes, we do.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a web application?
It depends upon the project specifications, the platform used, target audience, time spent, number of developers used, project deadlines, etc.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
We do work on all payment structure including Fix Price, Hourly Price, Milestone basis, Monthly or Weekly or Phase basis. We prefer Milestone basis most.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
It always depends upon the work. There is no minimum budget or maximum budget; if we are working for an old client, and he has some small tasks as well, we do that for him for sure. Sometimes the client can have small tasks for you, and you can’t always say it’s not as per my budget. Anyway, we prefer a new work of at least 1000-2000 USD.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The price range of projects we catered in 2018 was from $1000 to $30000.
