Great question! We do both hourly (time and materials) and guaranteed fixed-fee projects. The more defined and predictable a project is, the happier we are to attach a fixed fee to it. We prefer to bill hourly for longer-term projects with changing requirements. The difficulty in estimating software is well documented. Thankfully, we've completed enough projects to predict the straightforward accurately. Here are some examples:
Every project varies and each will get it's own estimate (for hourly projects) or guaranteed price (for fixed bid). Fill out our "request quote" form to get a quote now!
Braid has an efficient and transparent workflow. Upon project kickoff, we will add you as an observer to a project development board. You will see the prioritized list of the tasks we are actively working on as they progress from "backlog", to "in progress", to "done". A loose hours estimate is placed on each task so you can see how certain tasks will impact your budget. If desired, you can help prioritize the task list to ensure an ideal utilization of your budget.
We regularly send budget reports throughout the duration of a project so you will know exactly where you stand. We will also invite representatives from your organization to our Slack team allowing for real-time access to the development team.
While we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional code quickly, the duration of a project is determined by many factors.
We use hours, days, and weeks to estimate small to medium sized projects, and months to measure the scope of larger applications.
We love freelancers. In fact, most of us have freelanced in the past. Working with Braid is a different experience entirely.
Our development team is made up of full-time professionals, dedicated to producing high-quality work. Hiring a freelancer means you have a single point of failure. Having a team assures you don't have to worry about a freelancer getting sick or burning out and quitting your project.
Yes! Our design services are centered around user interfaces (UI) and user experience (UX).
When Braid joins your team, we invite you to our messaging system. This is where our team hangs out day in and day out, and where you can ping us with any questions or concerns. Of course, you can always email or call your assigned partner manager as well.
