Frequently asked questions from our clients

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

    The price of startup development depends on 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.

    However, if you have a limited budget, no problem. Tell us both your requirements and your budget, and we will do our best to provide you with the best match.

  • 2 What happens after the first contact?

    Here is our routine:

    • Sign an NDA
    • Determine needs and goals
    • Prepare proposal for development
    • Finalize details
    • Sign a contract
    • Develop software
    • Launch
    • Start post-launch guarantee support
    • Add new functionality upon user feedback
  • 3 Do you work with a third-party codebase?

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

  • 4 Do you accept fixed-price projects?

    Yes, this is possible for projects with clear scope details. Please send your requirements and we will provide you with the best development path for you.

  • 5 What are your payment terms?

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

    For fixed-price projects, half of the project price is due after project kick-off, the rest of the price is due after its successful acceptance.

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

    Yes, of course. Many of our partners focus on business rather than technologies. You approach us seeking a solution for your business needs and you get it whether you have technical experience or not. Just like you with a dentist. You get quality service even if you have no medical background.

    Also, please check success stories in our Clutch profile to see how this worked for our clients.

  • 7 What details should I provide in a project specification?

    There is nothing set in stone on what you should mention in your project specification description. Just describe your idea in all substantial details.

    Or schedule a meeting with our specialists. We will write down your notes and start our journey from idea to a successful launch.

  • 8 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 custom MVP implementation involving all necessary specialists. We go through all software development stages, including documentation, design, development, testing, and launch. Post-launch guarantee is included.

    Our team consists of experienced engineers who have successfully launched multiple commercial projects. We approach every project contemplatively, serving our clients as a tech partner who provides valuable recommendations when needed.

    Also, for farshore companies, rates are low but cultural misunderstandings are high. Check with others who have used these companies about the quality delivered and whether or not deadlines were met.

  • 9 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, testing is an integral part of every project. QAs check code quality using both manual and automated testing. This all makes it possible to ensure product quality on a regular basis in both respects: development and testing.

  • 10 Which is the best software development company?

    For you, the best company is the one that manages to meet your expectations on custom software development for startups. Think in advance about your priorities: development price, source-code quality, timely delivery, sharing similar views and values, and more.

    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
  • 11 How long does startup software development take?

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

    • Prototype – 1 to 2 months
    • MVP – 4 to 6 months
    • Fully-featured software – 6 to 9 months (sometimes up to 15 months)
  • 12 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.

  • 13 Can you scale the project team?

    Yes, we can. We monitor how your project is progressing and add people if extra help is needed. Occasionally, when it’s a rare specialty, it takes time to find the right professional.

  • 14 Do you offer support and maintenance?

    Yes, we do. The same team can continue working on the app. We can also assign a team of superheroes to support your servers.
