You will complete a Self-Evaluation Request (SER).
Billing contacts and a Senior Decision Making manager are only necessary once you have signed our Service Agreements.
Once we have received the completed SER, we will use the information provided
to complete a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). We will expedite the NDA back to you.
If you would like to provide us with your own NDA please feel free to do so.
While we are exchanging and/or preparing the NDA, we would like to schedule a Top Level Review meeting.
The Top Level review Meeting takes place after the NDA’s has been received.
Usually conducted on the phone, Skype, or other video conferencing solution, the
Top Level Review serves as a detailed explanation of our service offering.
We will enter into a top level (non-technical) discussion of your requirements
and a possible appropriate solution.
In particular we will discuss the pros and cons of a Lease-To-Hire (LTH) or
Project Based (PB) solution, and what that means as it relates to your project.
The goal of this conversation is that you have a thorough understanding of the
entire process. We will try to address all of the questions you might have to
the extent of the possible solutions including some rough pricing guidelines.
After the Top Level Review has been concluded, you have made a decision to
move along within the process, and would like to obtain a detailed technical
proposal we will commence with the detailed technical review. (Deep Dive Review).
Typically we expect you to have made a decision before the Deep Dive commences whether
you would will utilize the Project Based (PB) Approach or the Lease-To-Hire Model (LTH).
This is preferred since the Deep Dive will differ somewhat between the two options.
One of our Team Project Evaluators will get on the phone and video link with one of the technical counterparts on your side.
Our Project Evaluator will look at the explained project and evaluate the actual technical need that you have.
As part of this evaluation we will breakdown your project into different components.
(Web, Enterprise, IOT, Mobile, DB, UX and so on…)
Each component gets assigned a numeric value. The value represents our assessment as to the
difficulty level of the reviewed component. 1 represents the lowest and 10 the highest on the scale.
We use this value to later match the qualifications of your hire to the difficulty level of the project.
Simply put a 5-rated project to be matched with a development 5-rated staff.
Based upon the Information obtained during prior discussions and the Deep Dive, we will submit a binding offer.
The offer will contain pricing based upon the established guidelines.
Upon agreement of the Final Proposal we will immediately commence the assembly of the team.
Lease To Hire:
Using external testing environments, we will start screening candidates.
The results will correspond to the numeric difficulty values assigned to the project
as part of the Deep Dive. You will be presented with a variety of candidates,
and have the ability to screen and interview candidates to select the team.
The Project Manager dedicated to your project will assemble the team tasked to complete your project.
We will share all relevant details of the team members with you.
The team has been assembled and the payment obligations have been fulfilled.
The Team starts working. Based upon the established guidelines the Team Managers
will maintain open line of communications to maintain close contact with you.
We typically use Active Collab to organize and structure the project.
Updates are provided weekly at the very least. In case you prefer an alternative
management structure, we will make every effort to comply with your reporting
requirements and use the tools you prefer to use.
