If you need more than just the «hands of programmers»
For a number of clients, we have become not just a contractor, but a partner. The Alibaba Group calls it the Technical Partner: we not only provide the hands of programmers, but also advise, help digitize business processes and conduct analytics of implementations.
To do this, we add to the team of analysts, and also immediately stipulate our capabilities and the right to vote with the customer. Such work costs $38 per hour, but for this money the Customer will actually outsource all his digital.
DevOps, round-the-clock technical support and monitoring
We will monitor your site around the clock, with the involvement of the programmer on duty in the event of an accident (by phone or Intranet system).
Register the response time (SLA) and penalties in the Contract. The cost of ensuring the reaction - 50 000 ? per month.
DevOps stack: Docker / Kubernetes / GitLab CI / Jenkins / Prometheus.
- deployment and preparation of the environment
- organization and control of continuous integration and code delivery systems
- performance monitoring (server / other system performance)
The working group of the Customer is set up in the task setting system. You set tasks for us and watch them solved. You will receive a notification on your phone or email about progress.
The manager responds to it within 1-2 hours and gives an assessment or asks clarifying questions.
On support: «Ralf Ringer» (> 5000 orders per month).
After receiving the assessment, you approve it, and we proceed to work.
If we incorrectly calculated the standard hours (and the task remains the same) — these are our risks and our problems, you only pay for the stipulated hours.
At the end of each month we provide a detailed report.
Production: development scheme, version control, autotests.
Using a version control system for a project, you can put several programmers at once, and their changes are easy to track. The same technology is used with further support of the site.
When you submit a project, we use both automatic and manual testing to provide for everything. Download a sample report about testing the site.
Refinement of foreign projects
Do we take other people's projects? Yes, we take, in almost all cases, immediately proceed to work.
What else? 1C and outstaff.
We also maintain and refine systems based on 1C, from Trade Management to ERP.
For large customers, we make the landing of employees to the Customer — outstaff.
What stand out
Transparency of development. Clients see Studio employees in our Intranet system and communicate with them directly. The agreements are fixed in the tasks, the information is not lost (unlike mail or phone).
Warranty period. We provide a termless guarantee for work, the specialists will give you free advice on the administration and further development of the project.
When are we most effective?
- Need a contractor with a large team in the office (inhouse)
- you need to fix the composition of the team on the project and not to change it just like that
- you need a lot of competencies at once: the whole development cycle, 1C, DevOps, marketing, consulting
- you need to start under the guarantee letter or give people to outstaff
- for a number of works, you need not only “hands”, but also “head”, that is, analytics and consulting
