How Do You Quote A Fixed Cost For A Project?
If we can't, who can? We believe that it is unreasonable to ask our customers to commit to a project without knowing what it will cost. If the project is well defined, we have the experience required to estimate the time and materials involved in the project, and to develop a detailed statement of work.
How Does Your Billing Work?
We are very flexible, we bill the way that best suits your requirements. Generally, we expect 30% of the contract as a retainer, provide weekly or monthly progress billing during the course of the project for 50% of the project cost, with the remaining 20% due upon completion.
Who Owns The Design?
You pay for it, you own it. On patents, we ask to be listed as the inventor, but all rights are assigned to you. You own all copyrights to software and design documentation.
