What does IT project estimation look like (Web application, PC software or firmware solution)?

Once we know exactly what all the requirement are and we have a general idea how the system should operate and what needs it should meet we divide the project into smaller elements/tasks down to the smallest possible parts we are able to estimate. Rather than general tables of time estimation we use our own models which are more adequate as they reflect the real time our team needs to complete a task. It is impossible to propose a price of a project in the time as brief as one hour. The process of estimation is time-consuming but it is the only way to work out how much time is needed to complete a project and consequently what the cost of work will be. It should also be remembered that the details of the project are vital and can have significant impact on the price of a project, usually increasing it considerably. This is why it is good to have a detailed requirement specification prepared in advance, as it is the only basis for reliable cost estimation. For further information please look at the Outsourcing/Step by Step section.

We want to create software – how to start cooperation? What information and documents are needed?

The best way is to start with phoning us and we will lead you on. One thing, however, the more information you have about your system, the better; ideally you should have the full requirement specification ready. Cost and time estimation of a project is a complex and time-consuming process. In order to make such estimation we need to know what exactly you are trying to achieve. Please remember that what is obvious for you: knowing well your branch, your environment and your business, may not be so obvious for us. What you mean by ‘business management system’ may not be so unambiguous for us. From our perspective, there are as many ‘business management systems’ as there are businesses. Each looks different and meets different requirements.
