General Questions About Costs and Risks

We offer a full cycle of product development including help with the design, implementation, enhancement, and support of the solutions that we build for our customers. Our rates are competitive.
PNWS is a mid-sized (30+ developer) company, and we've created line of business apps for multiple Fortune 500 companies. We can scale up a development team to handle all but the largest of needs. And if you're needs are that large, you should consider directly employing the development team.
Development companies are better than freelancers because of the reduced risk for project failure, particularly for a reputable development company like PNWS. Not all freelancers are incapable, but they cannot scale and they do not have the broad base of experience of an entire team of developers. And what happens when they get sick, or have a previous customer call with an emergency?
Obviously, prices on our development services are dependent upon the project type and size. Because the bulk of our labor comes from Ukraine, our costs are competitive with pure outsourcing, but with US led development teams, we provide a much higher level of service.
We offer the following engagement models: Dedicated team, Hourly model, Fixed-price
Our developers know that the majority of our customers are US based, and shift their work schedule to have significant overlap with the US. Typically they are available until 1pm EST/10am PST, and later in the day as needed. This allows for plenty of interaction with our customers.
Our developers will likely create the initial prototype of your new project or the initial set of changes of your existing app within a few days and get that to you to try out. Over the course of the project, we will update it almost every day so you can see the progress as it occurs. Every day our developers enter their hours into our Track System with notes on what they did. You can add items to the to-do list by directly entering them into Track.
We give great importance to data security. All our of developers are with us for the long term, and have passed background checks. They have also signed agreements regarding keeping information and data secure. In addition, we offer a mutual NDA for all of our customers. This ensures the confidentiality of your data and the secrecy of the project. Our security measures include restricted access to our offices, firewall and antivirus protection, a strictly-enforced password policy, and system administrator support. Additional security measures can be added at your request.
One of PNWS' partners will contact you to discuss your project with you. Both John and Mike are experienced developers, and they can discuss your options in-depth and give you some rough estimates right away.
