We can handle any portion of your project including gathering requirements, designing specifications, project planning and management, development, testing, installation, training, and more. Regardless of the services you chose, we will provide you a fixed price for your investment beforehand so you can eliminate the guessing game.
We start with a free consultation where we gather your specifications and requirements at no cost with several recommendations. If you decide to work with us, we'll produce a Project Charter after the consultation.
At this point you may continue working with us. If you do not, you owe us nothing and all documents are yours to keep. Should you continue to work with us, we will produce a Project Plan that is guaranteed to be unmistakably clear with specific costs and stakeholders involved, precise metrics, and defined milestones with dates with predictable accuracy.
You may pay the entire project investment once it is completed, or upfront with a 10% discount. Additionally, we accept monthly or incremental payments at milestones. We will handle all of the development, testing, installation, and training of creating your project, so that in the end you are left with verifying the project's completion.
We understand that each project has different requirements, so costs may vary depending on the complexity. However, we can provide some base costs that you may expect to encounter based on our previous contracts through real user stories:
|Ransomware took 4 of our computers hostage and it's spreading. Can you remove it?||$600|
|We need custom software so our Roche Cobas 4800 medical instrument can interact with our Library Information System (LIS)||$1,200|
|Our car dealership's database is failing and is negatively affecting business. Can you help us resolve the issues and restructure it?||$4,000|
|We are a bank that requires users to function through a virtualized computer. Also, we need a Juniper SSL firewall installed through these connections.||$7,500|
|Our website was hacked and we need it securely rebuilt.||$3,000|
|We need a custom website with an administration section and a calendar system.||$4,000|
|We need our Greenscreen system to be converted to a web-based system.||$7,000|
Any changes to the design of your product after Project Costs are determined may alter the overall investment of the project. We understand that things change throughout any given project and thus we will include as many foreseen change requests as possible within the project's scope. However, changes outside of the scope may cause additional workload on our end and thus may increase the investment.
On-Site consulting within 50 miles of the Denver Metro Area is completely free. Any area outside of this radius will be billed based on market prices. The results from a service such as Orbitz or Expedia will be used to show the lowest rate available, which will be added on your bill. If overnight stay is required, we will use the same aforementioned services to find a nearby hotel and it to your bill. Other expenses such as restaurants and baggage fees will not be added on to your bill.
We also work remotely and can often start within 24 hours of contacting us. With no travel or set-up time, we can begin working immediately on your needs with no additional costs.
The software we build will be designed specifically for you and no one else. Through our consulting, we will determine the best way to build software that is suitable to your company's way of business.
Most companies run pre-written software and are paying a license fee to use it. This software is often not tailored for every business' needs and will often require higher fees for more users. Keep in mind that pre-written software can be the best choice. Typically, companies in their early stages will utilize software as they are still learning business processes. We will not hesitate to recommend other available software if it is a better option for you.
The software we build for you is designed specifically for your use. You are free to modify, sell, or redistribute the software as you choose. Custom software can be used to combine features from other packages with the features that your company needs, or it can enable you to instantly access the information you need in a format that makes sense for you.
At no additional cost, all of our applications are built with a language of your choice including C#, Java, Visual Basic, and more. If there is no language you prefer, then we will gladly recommend the best language for the given task. We can also build web applications if they are the best fit through languages like ASP.net and PHP. Our code is heavily commented so it's easy to modify for future usage.
We have a rigorous testing schedule based off user stories that helps prevent errors. All of our software comes with a 6-month warranty. Should you encounter any errors within this window of product delivery, we will fix them free of charge. Any errors reported post 6 months may require additional payments.
The first 30 days of support are free and unlimited. Any support beyond this 30 day period will generate an invoice at the end of each month for the hours you used towards support.
You will have access to the expertise of our entire staff. We are available 24/7 to assist you. We will assign team members based on your needs and their qualifications, or you may request specific team members for your Support Specialist. You may request appointments at any time, including our 24-hour emergency service. We guarantee response times of less than hour.
Our pricing table is built on a fixed-cost monthly contract. We offer discounts for multi-month contracts and will allocate you more hours of support per month as a thank you. Any hours of support beyond the contract will be charged at the rate of $130 per hour. However, we will provide you a courtesy notification when you are reaching your allocated limit.
|Period||Hours Available (per Month)||Cost (per Month)|
The contracts highlighted above include automatic rollover of any unused hours. There is no limit to the number of hours which may rollover, and they will never expire as long as you are under contract.
You may cancel your agreement at any time without penalty. If you do, you will be invoiced for any unbilled time or refunded any unused prepayments. All unbilled time will be adjusted to the standard hourly rate on your final invoice. If you have a multi-month contract, then any remaining months will be fully refunded.
When working with data management, we'll need to understand what exactly what we're updating, fixing, designing, building, etc. If you have data in place, then we'll observe your raw data, reports, and physical collection models. We will also review your various server jobs, triggers, audits, packages, repositories, and more.
The big buzz word is the cloud, but is it always the best option? Many companies forget about important data management terminology such as architecture, analysis, security, quality, reference data, warehousing, meta data, documentation, policies, and many more. These are all important terms that we will gladly cooperate with your business on.
Every database has positive and negative aspects. The most common engines include Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB. However, large amounts of data may require a non-relational mechanism for storing data. There are too many examples, but some methods of these include multivalue databases, multimodel, triple/quad store, object, graph, and key-value stores. We have familiarity with dozens of database engines and we will gladly work with you regardless of what you have or need.
When you think about data manage services, do not look any further than our own experience with software like VMWare, Parallels, Hyper-V, HyperVM, Microsoft App-V, and many more. Regardless of the software and services you use, we will work with you to ensure that your environment is secure and reliable.
