With a process engineered for better results
(or those growing into one)
Risks: The challenge with contractors is that they move on to their next contract. If you need ongoing development or support, you may be out of luck. You also need to be technically savvy enough to assess their skills. Beware, sometimes the most knowledgeable developers write the least supportable code.
Risks: Hiring an employee has many of the same issues as hiring a contractor. Too often below average developers are hired by midsize companies because they don't know how to assess technical skills and mistakenly rely on a staffing agency. Due to the lack of managment and peers, code quality and documentation suffers.
Risks: This works well for augmenting an existing team, but for midsize companies needing just a few developers, this can be a disaster. Success with outsourcing is dependent upon technical oversight, strong vetting, tight quality control and, most importantly, excellent communications. There is also a risk of losing intellectual property.
We offer an alternative. We bring a team's worth of skills and knowledge and you choose number of hours. Each block of time includes a mix of experts. We are very process focused which results in greater efficiency. Code quality and supportability is designed into our process. This approach provides the best return on your investment with the least risk.
Our Approach Alleviates Your Risk
We provide the agility of an individual
with the strength of a team
Reacting quickly is key and no matter what happens we always have someone who can jump on an issue and get it fixed right away. This can be a problem when you hire only one person who may be out when a critical issue arises.
Based on the needs of your project we can add or remove staff who have the skills and expertise you need at that point in time. This provides your business with far more flexibility than one person could ever provide.
Because each person is focused on their set of responsibilities based upon their skills and knowledge, our team approach keeps everyone more focused without unnecessary distractions.
Each customer has a project manager, a primary developer and a business analyst who all learn about your business needs to ensure the software application successfully achieves it's intended objectives.
Instead of one employee with limited skill sets, we bring a whole team's worth of skills and knowledge. This not only includes technical skills and project management, but also UI/UX design, business expertise, cloud infrastructure planning and more.
Software quality preservies your investment. It's achieved by having a well defined process with quality control checks, well-tested reusable code, project oversight and a culture of excellence. This is excatly what Synap brings to every project.
By having a process focus and putting the right person with the necessary skills on the right tasks, we can be more productive. Also, we have a much larger base of reusable code to draw from which makes us even more efficient.
We assign a primary developer to your project, alternate developers as backup, and a project manager, so there's always someone to support your application. We also ensure knowledge continuity which alleviates any risk due to turnover.
You don't get results by focusing on results. You get results by focusing on the actions that produce results.
Pick the model that's right for your business needs, or we can customize an engagement model specific to the goals of your company. Our agreements are intended to provide clarity, not to lock you in. We do that by delivering great results!
The flex model is our most popular model and is ideal for longer term needs where you have a monthly budget, yet you also want some flexibility to add or reduce resources.
With this model you set a fixed project budget and we work with your team to prioritize the most important features and tasks in order to maximize the results.
This model is best when you need to build or fix something quickly and it's not a large project. Blocks can be by the hour, by the day, by the week or by the month.
