Will you review my current website/app and analyze its performance before making your design decisions?
Absolutely. We will not only review your current website/app, but also your current business process on the whole, to try and understand what your business needs before offering to provide any solutions.
Our focus is on providing you a solution that's tailor made for your business, and so analyzing your current business website/app is one of the most important steps for us. You can read more about our requirement analysis process here.
How much time is expected to be devoted to analyzing my business, market and competitors?
We consider requirement analysis as the most important starting point for any project. The time required to perform the analysis varies greatly from project to project, but we ensure that due time and attention are given to analyzing your business.
What happens if I don’t like the initial design?
We understand that design elements are a matter of personal taste, and what works for one person/demographics, might not work for another. This is why, we collect all the information from you that we can, during the design process itself, including your preferences/views. We combine that with the practicality and business goals to come up with the design.
In case you do not like the initial design, we ask you for your feedback on why you do not like the design, to understand our mistake and correct it.
We offer up to three revisions/ideas of design for the website, but usually most of our clients do not require more than one major design change before we 'get it right'.
Will my website/application be built to expand as my business grows?
Yes. One of the major features of the solutions that we provide is scalability and adaptability. We understand that everybody wants their business to grow, and in order to grow one must respond to the volatile market trends and changing requirements, and you would want your site/application to assist in your growth, rather than be a hindrance. Hence, we always take care to make a solution that can be scaled and adapted according to how your business shapes itself over time.
Can you help me get images for my website?
Absolutely. We can help you procure images for your website. All assets, including images that are used to design your solution, are procured from legal and trustworthy sources. We either buy them on your behalf, or, if you so wish, you may buy them yourself, and we can help you with the process. Either way, you will never ever face an issue with pirated/stolen/illegally procured images/assets being used on your website.

We take your input very seriously when making your website design. After all, it's your business, and you have the most at stake to make it a success.

How do you ensure that my project is delivered on time?
We follow Agile software development principles, and as per one of the guidelines of agile software development, this is how we break down your project delivery -
The business requirements are broken down into required features, called user stories
Based on priority, the user stories are combined into development iterations called sprints.
Sprints are development iterations which are short (usually one to two weeks in length), and produce a deliverable implementation of a software feature which can be tested and collected feedback on.
Sprints allow us to give you many quick and small deliveries -- rather than one large and lengthy delivery -- related to your project
We encourage feedback collection from early stages of development, so that the solutions can be adjusted quickly, rather than spending a huge amount of time trying to document a feature to the minutest detail
Shorter and more frequent deliveries also help gauge progress more accurately, as the best measurement of progress is in the delivery of a usable product/solution.
Your project will be managed by an assigned project manager, who will act as an interface between you and the development team. He will be responsible for understanding your project requirements and translating them into technical specifications and user stories for the development team to work on.
Additionally, you will be given access to our project management tool, where you can submit your requirements, track progress, view files, and give feedback on features completed using the ticketing system.
How do I track the progress of my project and bugs/issues during the lifecycle of the project?
You will be given access to our project management portal when you are working with us; from there you can track all your projects, and perform actions such as raising support tickets, checking bug fix progress and other updates, communicating with the team, etc.
What happens in a large project if one or more team member/s leave/s?
All our project codes are written using uniform conventions following the industry best practices, and documentation for all projects is maintained and kept up to date at all times. Hence, in the case of the unavailability of a team member, s/he can be replaced with another team member to take the project forward.
Do you offer on-going maintenance after my site goes live?
Yes, if you require, we provide ongoing maintenance to your site after it comes to us. Feel free to discuss your requirements regarding this with us, and we would be happy to assist you.
How do you measure the results after the site goes live?
Once we embark on a project, we make sure that we understand the objective of the project that we are working on. The object can be introducing a new product or service, or enhancing an existing one to improve features/ease of use, and attract more customers for the business.
While the general goal is to help your business improve and attract more customers, specific goals differ from project to project and are discussed with the client before starting the project. The results are measured accordingly.
Will I be able to access my website statistics without contacting you?
Yes, you can access all the statistics related to your website from either the project's control panel backend, or from other dashboards as may be relevant to the project. In all cases, we will show you how to access and interpret the statistics on your own -- if you so desire -- without needing our help on a day to day basis.
What is the billing procedure for work outside the project’s initial quote or agreed upon deliverables?
The billing procedure varies depending on which payment model is being followed for your project. For fixed cost projects, this is usually handled by quoting "mini projects" separately. Just ask us, we would help you to set something that's comfortabe for the both of us.
When are you available for technical support?
We are generally available between 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. IST (GMT/UTC +5:30). However, if you need technical support at a different time on a fairly regular basis, we can set it up for you. Just talk to us about it.
What is your policy regarding working with my competitors?
Unless we have an explicit agreement with you otherwise, we reserve the right to work with anyone, including your competitors. However, as a policy, we never share information and business intelligence between clients, apart from generic information that anyone in the relevant industry is aware of. If you are going to share information with us which you want to be kept secret, you may ask us to sign an NDA for the relevant information.
Do you mind signing an NDA before I share my project details with you?
We are open to signing an NDA with you even without getting the project details. We can either sign a standard NDA document with you, or, if you want us to sign a specific version, you may submit it to us for review and approval.
Will I own my website once it’s completed?
Yes, you will own the full copyright of the project work we do for you, including custom software, graphic, mobile app, or any other resource that is created during the development of your project. However, our projects often make use of common third party libraries, or other licensed assets like royalty free images, for which while you will have a valid usage license, you will not hold an exclusive copyright.
