?What is the quality of people you employ?
The quality of a software development company is ultimately the quality of its people. Our people are very strong for software projects: Are English-speaking Graduate/Post-Graduate Engineers Have multiple years of industry experience, or are out-standing new engineers All people have experience on off-shore projects with various clients. Most people are from premier engineering institutes gone through interviewing and reference checking!
?For all that you claim, isn't the rate too low?
Low or high are meaningful only in context. The rate is low not because of technical limitation, but simply because we operate from India, where living costs are lower due to international economies and exchange rates. It is our strategy to pass on these location advantages to our clients.
?What are your payment models?
We work only with long-term committed clients who want Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) services, and offer a monthly rate/One Time full payment using Direct Bank Transfer/Cheque/DD.
?What are your payment terms?
We invoice on monthly/One Time basis and payment is due on invoicing.
?How do you assure confidentiality?
We sign NDAs and Confidentiality Agreements as required by you. All our employees are full-time employees, and are bound by the company Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure clauses. You may require assigned Mindfire team members to sign your Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements; indeed we encourage the same. Additionally, for sensitive projects, we create isolated cells disconnected from any public network. At a practical level, all CD-Writers need authorisation for usage. Internet uploads larger than a threshold also need authorisation.
?Can you guarantee time-bound results?
No. We work on time-based billing for reasons that benefit our clients, and guaranteeing fixed-time results means compromising on that clarity and delivering sub-optimal results to clients. The team may be able to give you an idea, but that is not a business guarantee.
?We are worried about quality; how do you assure solid projects?
Our developers are dedicated to producing quality code. We have formal processes to keep quality under tight control, including periodic code reviews and design walk-throughs. We concentrate on being first-time right, and believe the creation-step itself should be strong. Every project goes through the hands of suitable QA/testing professionals, under stringent test-plans including black-box testing, white-box testing, test regression, usage analysis etc.
?Why should we trust you?
We believe trust and confidence are the foundation for any successful relationship, and develop only after association over time. The following facts may help demonstrate our commitment to our business: We have completed projects for 50+ india/foriegn clients We have been 2+ years in business, dedicated to the off-shore execution model We are here for the long run; our CEO has global experience with leading technology companies and has started up with a long-term vision The team consists of people from global companies.
?What contracts and agreements do you sign?
We sign NDAs before initial discussions, and final contracts are drawn out in detail. We are normally bound by the legal framework of our client's country, and are a registered organisation in India.
?Can you come on-site?
Yes we do, where required. This may be especially useful in initial requirements gathering, final implementation or other pain points. In such cases, our consultants will work on-site at pre-decided rates.
?What control do we have over the project?
You will have ability to keep close control over the project. Our assigned Project Manager will be your single point-of-contact for all issue resolution, and will work closely with your guidelines. Asnnovia solution has been specifically developed to provide you complete control over your project. It offers unparalleled transparency and control.
?We like the idea, but are unsure. Can we do a Pilot Period?
Asnnovia welcomes you to try our services. You may choose to have us do a "risk-free" Pilot Period. We are confident enough to offer a pilot period because we have always succeeded in continuing the relationship after demonstration of ability in a pilot period. Our preferred Pilot Period is spent on either the first sub-system of a larger project, or an independent project that completes within itself. Pilot Periods are typically for one month. We invest the same time and energy in Pilot Periods as during real work. You would find the pilot of sufficient quality to continue on the same code. In this sense, Pilots are very different from prototypes.
