Repetitive clients! Though we’ve built out-of-the-box, state-of-the-art solutions for many of our clients, but what we would prefer to highlight is the ratio of our repetitive clients, which is 80 percent.

We first define the milestones based on the need & urgency of the client, and then we assign multiple resources as and when possible to match our promised timeline.How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
Well, there are a lot of factors that need to be taken into account when choosing a development platform to go with. But, considering the fact that almost all clients want to develop apps that generate revenue, we recommend to go with iOS platform first mainly because of the quality users. Also, one survey found that on average, iPhone apps make 75% more money than Android, despite Google Play market share being 4 times bigger than iOS.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?
This usually depends on the client’s preference. If app performance is a top priority, then we recommend going Native. However, if the native app development cost doesn’t fit client’s budget, then Cross-platform can be just as fine as long as the app requirement is not too complex.
How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
When it comes to payment structure, we are flexible with it. Generally, we have 3 major structures; Fixed cost (Pay per feature, Pay per milestone), Monthly (Fixed Monthly Payment for each developer hired) & Time & Material (Payment as per features and milestone).
We also offer a fourth business model called Offshore Development Center which is ideal for IT consultants & development agencies.

As I mentioned earlier, Client satisfaction is our first priority. And, to attain it, we take an extra care of every detail of our client’s project starting from conceptualization to design, development, deployment, and maintenance.
