Pricing

Fixed and Transparent Pricing means you always know how much you’ll have to invest in advance of starting any project. Never a surprise invoice. Never a billable overage without prior approval. Always know what you’re paying for. And why. Down to the individual line item.


Pricing for Business Transformation Consulting Services

Business Transformation projects integrate strategy, process, technology, and information to increase effectiveness, reduce costs and improve profit and shareholder value. By implementing carefully controlled and metered changes (as opposed to chaotics and heroics), we shift and realign business operations to make changes to processes, personnel, company culture, or technology to better connect the organization with its business strategy and vision.

Pricing for DevOps and MIaC Consulting Services

DevOps practices cover the intersection between Development and Operations disciplines. We handle the processes, tools, techniques, and methodologies that enable modern development practices, standards compliance, agile and rapid delivery, increased flexibility, and improved quality.

Managed Implementation and Continuity (MIaC) support is dedicated to protecting projects from lost opportunities, unnecessary risks, and poor alignment between requirements and delivery. We focus on avoiding the “Fire and Forget” approach to project implementation by treating projects like the organic experiences they actually are. Standards and requirements are continually reevaluated and long-term proactive monitoring and maintenance are regarded as first-class citizens in the project’s community of components.

  • Hosting on Google Cloud Platform
  • Containerized servers for both Production and Staging

Pricing for Websites and Apps Consulting Services

The traditional websites of the early web still have legitimate roles to play in business, community, and communications. But these same websites often grow into full-fledged apps when we add advanced functionalities like memberships, e-commerce, and structured content handling. And as the line between “simple” websites and sophisticated apps continues to blur, we need to be more careful about professional implementation and continuous professional maintenance.

Infrastructure Features

All the website projects we build include the same underlying infrastructure features that are included in our Agency or WebOps DevOps offerings, as detailed above. You benefit from all the power we use for enterprise development projects, without ever having to worry about learning or managing these advanced tools and workflows. It’s your web project, and we are your web team!

Application Features

Grow your project at any time. If your budget and time constraints allow you to start with all required features at the very outset of the project, that’s great! And not only because there is a discount for buying into these features at project inception. If, however, you need to build in phases, we’ve got you covered. The same processes and tools that make our platform so secure and agile allow you to order features on short notice and with great safety and stability, even if your project is busy and highly active.

Among our many componentized features:

  1. Agile design systems with the best brand development tools
  2. Accessibility compliance and usability enhancements
  3. Privacy compliance, enhanced data security, and membership systems
  4. Events calendars and appointments management
  5. Advanced image handling, charts and graphs (and other data visualization tools), media libraries, and even 3D
  6. Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages

And many more features! Wherever possible, we’ve broken down these features into tiers and extensions that allow you to invest as precisely and cost-effectively as possible.

Pricing for Outsourcing and Partner Management Consulting Services

Outsourcing and third-party partnerships can be effective means of offloading excess workloads and extending the organization’s reach. Unless managed carefully, however, these relationships can also create blind spots into which the organization cannot see, and expensive errors or misalignments that only become known at or near delivery time. We address these threats by managing the relationships themselves separately from assigned workloads, and by designing work plans that are as small and as modular as possible with frequent actionable milestones that include measurable achievements, clear opportunities for goal refinement, and the earliest possible ROI.
