We work with 100+ customers across the US, Canada, UK, and Western Europe.
We provide a milestone-based, low-risk, fixed-fee solution. So, if we don’t deliver as per the agreed project milestones, we don’t get paid. Let’s get it straight! It’s NOT our model to provide a $50k project budget – that eventually gets delayed by months; has bugs during production use, is costly to add new features, has architecture scalability challenges later, and whose ongoing support is even expensive than the original implementation. This is the exact reason why we encourage you to do a free POC with us!
We provide Managed Services Agreement (MSA) contract to our clients where they can leverage our resources for further continuing months for any small upgrades, customization, etc.
Timings are not an issue because of 2 reasons - our methodology and client coordination mechanism. As far as methodology is concerned, we already described to you our agile methodology where we cut projects into portions and update them on weekly basis. In the client mechanism, we have one project and account manager who will always be your one touchpoint and you can express your grievances or issues to him directly by call or email. And above all that, even our members work on flexible timing modes to suit clients' geographical preferences, so there is nothing to worry.
This is our strongest point, and we boast about it. While sharing the proposal, we will submit you the list of folks working on the project and we encourage all our clients to explore our members’ Linkedin profiles and see the kind of work they have done and the experience they have! Please feel free to explore their blogs too! They all are Microsoft certified and some of them are even on their way to becoming MVP!
Rarely do such occasions arise! But if they do, then please contact us on our direct phone. This phone is logged only for the urgent Grievance redressal mechanism for our clients. This means your inquiry and issue will be attended to within an hour.
We, therefore, recommend doing a free POC so you get a taste of our working style. Secondly, please take a look at our customer base, testimonials, and references. I can even call them on a call with you if you need. You can have a background check and that will speak all.
Please email your requirements at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
