questions from our clients

How much does it cost me to build a project with you?

The price of startup development depends on the specified scope of work.

Below is a range for the minimum functionality:

  • A simple prototype starts at $20,000 – $30,000
  • An MVP starts at $70,000 – $126,000.
  • A custom system starts at $100,000.

If you have a limited budget, no problem. Tell us your requirements and budget, and we will provide you with the best plan.

What happens after the first contact?

Here is our delivery routine:

1. Sign an NDA
2. Determine needs and goals
3. Prepare a proposal for development
4. Finalize details
5. Sign a contract
6. Develop software
7. Launch
8. Start post-launch guarantee support
9. Add new functionality upon user feedback

Do you work with a third-party codebase?

Yes, we work with third-party codebases. We can update or add new features to a codebase produced by third-party developers. To ensure we adhere to both deadlines and quality standards, we do a code inspection prior to starting the project.

Do you accept fixed-price projects?

Yes, this is possible for projects with a clearly defined scope. Send your requirements and we will provide you with a development path that suits you the best.

What are your payment terms?

For large projects, payments are due by milestones. After a sprint, you get a report with the working hours on the project and access to the new functionality. After you do acceptance testing, the payment is due.

For fixed-price projects, 50% of project price is due after project kick-off; the rest of the price is due after you sign off on project completion.

I don’t have a tech background. Can we establish cooperation?

Yes, of course. You get a solution for your business needs whether you have technical experience or not. Just like going to the dentist, you get quality service even if you have no medical background.

What details should I provide in a project specification?

There is nothing set in stone. Just describe your idea in as much detail as you are able.

Or schedule a meeting with our software developers. We note down your requirements, deadline, budget. The journey for a startup can then begin from idea to successful launch.

Another company has quoted a much lower price for the same feature list. Why shouldn’t I go with them?

The choice of a software development company is solely yours to make. However, you should always evaluate what is included in the proposal.

For instance, IT Craft proposals for software development for startups include all software development stages–documentation, design, development, testing, and launch. Post-launch guarantee is included.

Farshore companies charge lower rates but cultural misunderstandings are high. This could result in higher costs for you—much higher. Check with others who have used these companies about the quality delivered and whether or not deadlines were met.

How do I know you deliver quality?

A good developer delivers code with minimum bugs. We say “minimum” because it is impossible to get rid of ALL bugs.

Hence, it is important how developers handle and control them. This is why our developers:

  • write code based on coding standards
  • do regular code reviews
  • use code analyzers
  • refactor legacy code
    and more

Also, QA checks code quality using both manual and automated testing.
All this makes it possible to ensure product quality on a regular basis in both respects: development and testing.

Which is the best software development company?

The best software development company for startups is the one that manages to meet your expectations on price and robustness of processes.

Use the following criteria to select the best company for your project:

  • types of services – what skills and knowledge they provide in a specific area
  • project complexity – what types of projects they have handled successfully
  • testimonies – what other clients write about quality of their services
  • availability – how fast they can start working on your software
How long does startup software development take?

It depends on project scope and complexity.
Usually, project timeline is based on the following:

  • Prototype – 1 to 2 months
  • MVP – 4 to 6 months
  • Fully-featured software – 6 to 9 months (sometimes up to 15 months)
How do you communicate with your client?

To communicate, we use whatever works best for you: Zoom, Skype, Slack or WhatsApp.

You get access to your project in a management system. We use Jira, Trello, and Asana to monitor the development process.

Can you scale the project team?

Yes, we can scale our project team. We monitor how your project is progressing and add people if extra help is needed.

Do you offer support and maintenance?

Yes, we offer post-launch support and maintenance. The same team continues working on the app. We also assign a team of superheroes to support your servers.
