How do you schedule the development phases of the apps to promise the timeline to your clients?
We follow an agile methodology to plan the project and its phases. We have 100% record of delivering the project on time with utmost client satisfaction. We sit together with clients to understand the project concept and extract the requirements to compile a scope to develop a product as per the client expectation. Our experienced project management team communicates with the client on every level and set up proper sprints and retrospective meetings to make the process smooth. Project management tools such as Asana are used for collaboration, to ensure maximum transparency with our client. With every milestone being achieved, we deliver a report to the client, gain their valuable feedback, and act upon it before taking up the next phase. This helps us in delivering the projects in a timely manner, without any delays.How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
This depends on the client expectations from their business perspective. We utilize our past experience and our analytics’ team run a preliminary diagnostic based on the requirements to make this decision easier for the client. We do competitive analysis, feasibility, and profitability and share other useful information that helps clients better understand the platform that best fits their application. Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you to make this choice?
It depends on the nature and complexity of the project; it is also predicated on the budget under which the client wants the application to be completed. Once you understand the complete requirement of the app, it is easier to identify and suggest the type of the application. We normally prefer native development over hybrid development. Native app development gives more room for developers to be creative and helps produce a better user experience as compared to other hybrid applications. Ultimately, both platforms have their positives and their limitations and in the end it comes down with the requirements and the cost ceiling that our clients have and we make sure we give them the best based on those limitations.How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Our pricing depends on the project requirements and we do an initial level of efforts evaluation once we start discussing the project with the client in pre-sales. It involves the numbers of resources allocated and hours been spent on every component of the project. This allows the client to review and get a better insight from a technical standpoint of their requirements. There is no set price for application development and it varies based on the requirements, functions, the complexity of the tasks, the platforms and devices for which the application needs to be compatible. Based on all these and the clients’ needs, a price is derived, making it a variable function.How helpful are the mobile apps developed by your team, for enhancing your clients’ business?
Our competitor analysis allows our applications to be state of the art, with functions based on the target audience of our clients’. This allows our applications to enhance our clients’ business to be effective based on industry standards, with interactive design and a user-friendly interface for swift navigation. The key is to keep in mind the need and wants of our clients’ consumer base to ensure an application that delivers best to their needs.

Communication is the cornerstone of client satisfaction. Complete transparency and accountability is what defines your relationship with your clients.
