How we quote for development
When we quote for a website or major project, we will quote for it based on the amount of time we believe it will take. This is the amount of time in which we are confident we can deliver the items laid out in the quote.
By their nature, online projects are likely to evolve as time goes on and new ideas or features may become something you decide you want. For this reason, we are flexible, and we will allow you to change/add things to the project while we are in the process of doing it. But please understand that this will mean that the original quote will have to also be flexible.
By quoting based on estimated time we not only give you a better understanding of what we intend to do in a given time-frame, but we also allow you to change things about the project on the fly, this type of flexible process improves transparency between us and you, and also means you get the end product that you want. Not the product you wanted a few weeks ago!
