Not necessarily. You can hire web site design and hosting services. All you need to an Internet connection through your local ISP. e-mail contact is almost a necessity for hosting or maintaining a web site.

You monitor the development completely and every phase of development has material results that you can see and review. The complete scope of the work is defined at the initial phase of development and approved by you.
 
Q8. What risks do I have in outsourcing development ?
 
First of all, the usual risks of software development: proper definition of the task, proper planning, proper managing and proper development process. We do our best to address these issues and have many successfully finished projects.

The second is communication. There should be Project Managers, who communicate every day. Failure in communication is the main cause of unsuccessful development. Any message addressed to us will be answered during the same or next working day.

The third is agreements. Responsibilities, payments and other arrangements have to be well made-up and clearly understandable, safeguarding the interest both sides.

Q11. What is the process of working together ?
 
Normally, our communication is based on Emails. At times, we chat also. Incase of emergency, you can take the help of phone/fax etc.

To start with the project, we need complete specifications in the form of .doc file. Based on those documents, we provide you the quote and time frame.

Normally we quote a project on an hourly basis but once we have the complete specification, we can provide you a fixed price quote too.

After your acceptance, we will start with the development work and keep you updated as we progress. We will place the scripts on an extranet for you to monitor progress on a daily basis. We make every possible effort to deliver the project on time.

We provide 10% concession (upon recommendation of the Project Manager) on the total Invoice amount to those customers who provide us detailed and accurate specifications.

We usually take a 30% deposit to start work. However, for the first project, we will waive this condition. You can make the payment by Bank wire transfer, corporate cheque, or any other method that you may prefer.
