FAQ

Some commonly asked questions

With whatever we can. Preparing cost analysis, establishing team roles, creating roadmaps. Defining business goals, key business values, target users, main features, prioritising. We can find you similar projects that are already active on the market to benchmark against. We can assist you with creating user personas, mock-ups, user stories, time frame, establishing project status and preparing project estimation. We'll be happy to outline project specification, prepare wireframes, details concerning integrations with external services, API documentation, required features list. In terms of project development we prepare server-side architecture, front end, back end, graphic and UX design, and create back-office consoles. We are also happy to advise our customers in terms of budgeting, scheduling, risk management, and business model creation.
Both have their benefits and flaws. Mobile apps are surely more expensive but can provide you with many more data collecting, monetisation capabilities than web applications. Progressive Web Apps are a good compromise between a mobile and web app. But remember that sooner or later you may need both mobile and web app and when that moment comes we are here for you
Well, the most important thing to know is what do you want to accomplish. Why do I need this software? What for? What should it do? Having a clear vision in mind is crucial when ordering a software application. You don't want to spend many months developing it with us without being sure what you need. If you have no experience in app development feel free to contact us we'll also be glad to help you get started, building projects from scratch is nothing new for us.
You certainly do not have to be a software development expert, that's what we're here for :) We welcome your experience in that matter if you happen to have any, but are prepared to guide you through the whole process and explain everything. Focus on your needs and we'll deliver what you require.
Not at all! We want you to be sure you'll receive the product you desire. From the planning stage to each finished version, we invite you to evaluate and improve our work. Our philosophy is to work with the client, not merely finish given tasks. We are always ready to listen and communicate.
All projects we take up carry the following guarantees: Confidentiality guarantee: All client details will be kept confidential Price guarantee: Minimum 60% cost-saving over on-site development Results guarantee: Progress-linked payments weighted toward the end
If you have an idea contact us by Skype (skype ID: Vaibhav.gaywala), e-mail (vaibhav.gaywala@gmail.com, vaibhav@siliconbrain.co.in) or phone (+91-9979462778). We'll meet and talk it over. Just be sure to prepare as much info about your idea as possible, it will smoothen the meeting and benefit further cooperation.
To give you a precise answer we must prepare a project scope and create a budget. We shall tell you how much of that scope can be completed within the budget and we'll be able to estimate how long will it take after at least a month of work. Don't worry, if you're not happy with our work after two weeks you can retract from the project with no penalties, this is our trial period and we believe that any reliable software house should give you one.
We thoroughly monitor our developers and control how much time they spend on each task down to the exact minute. We use “Time doctor” to track time spent on your project. We are also fine if you suggest any tracker application for that.
Hiring your own software developers can be a really smart choice, however, recruitment process is time-consuming and the costs of keeping an in-house programming team are very high. You'll probably need to employ your own software engineers sooner or later but hiring us can help you save a lot of money and time (which is basically the same in a business project).
Hopefully the app is exactly what you dreamed of :) But apart from delivering a finished product, we are happy to provide you with technical support and app maintenance should you need it. After all, we know our work inside out. Of course if you want to maintain the app by yourself the source code and all technical data is at your disposal, but even in that case, feel free to contact us if you need any help.
Whether you want to expand your product or create a completely new one simultaneously, and then again focus only on one of your projects, we are always ready to adapt to your requirements. If the work is less intense team size can be reduced. When improvements need to be implemented fast, we can quickly assign additional team members to speed up each phase of the development process.
We would not call it exactly a demo version but using Agile Methodolgy compels us to create operating software as soon as possible and later just add next features along the process. Therefore, you'll be able to examine and test your software very early.
Of course! We are always happy to improve, upgrade and further develop our work.
We’ll be more than happy to help you with that. Beginning with a UX Audit (if applicable) through improving your system architecture and adding new features.
Yes. All our customers are assigned a liaison that serves as their guide and information source throughout our whole cooperation.
When it comes to preparing an IT project there is no place for half measures. We prepare a Proof of Concept. It is a product development technique that helps us examine if the concept is feasible to realise from the tech and business perspective and gives us an idea of how the product should be developed.
It depends on many things: project scope, time spent on the project and technological issues. We know it sounds vague but its simply honest. Remember that each software project is different, especially if you had a particularly original idea. We do not want to give you an unrealistic estimate, instead we want to provide you with the best quality possible within your budget.
Rates vary, depending on skills, timelines, project nature etc. Typically, a Senior Developer would work at the rate of $3000/month.
The quality of a software development company is ultimately the quality of its people. Our people are very strong for software projects: o Are English-speaking Graduate/Post-Graduate Engineers o Have multiple years of industry experience, or are outstanding new engineers o All people have experience on off-shore projects with US/European clients o Most people are from premier engineering institutes or have proven exceptional abilities o Siliconbrain selection process is rigorous and includes 1+ hours of online tests, actual programming, 2+ hours of interviewing and reference checking! o Lots of candidates apply to us every month. We pick the top few among them.
Low or high are meaningful only in context. The rate is low not because of technical limitation, but simply because we operate from India, where living costs are lower due to international economies and exchange rates. It is our strategy to pass on these location advantages to our clients.
We prefer to work with long-term committed clients who want Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) services, and offer a monthly rate or pre define project cost.
If client choose hourly base then we make invoice on weekly base and if client choose daily base then we invoice on monthly basis and payment is due on invoicing or if client go with project base then we make invoice as per the mile stone base.
o We sign NDAs and Confidentiality Agreements as required by you. o All our employees are full-time employees, and are bound by the company Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure clauses. o You may require assigned Siliconbrain team members to sign your Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements; indeed we encourage the same. o Additionally, for sensitive projects, we create isolated cells disconnected from any public network. o At a practical level, all CD-Writers need authorization for usage. Internet uploads larger than a threshold also need authorization.
Only If client want to make project base work in that case we are ready for the time bound or otherwise, No. We work on time-based billing for reasons that benefit our clients, and guaranteeing fixed-time results means compromising on that clarity and delivering sub-optimal results to clients. The team may be able to give you an idea, but that is not a business guarantee.
Our developers are dedicated to producing quality code. We have formal processes to keep quality under tight control, including periodic code reviews and design walk-throughs. We concentrate on being first-time right, and believe the creation-step itself should be strong. Every project goes through the hands of suitable QA/testing professionals, under stringent test-plans including black-box testing, white-box testing, test regression, usage analysis etc.
We believe trust and confidence are the foundation for any successful relationship, and develop only after association over time. The following facts may help demonstrate our commitment to our business: o We have been 5+ years in business, dedicated to the off-shore execution model o We are here for the long run; our CEO has global experience with leading technology companies and has started up with a long-term vision o Our list of references/ testimonials
We sign NDAs before initial discussions, and final contracts are drawn out in detail. We are normally bound by the legal framework with our clients. We are a registered organization in India.
You will have ability to keep close control over the project. Our assigned Project Manager will be your single-point-of-contact for all issue resolution and will work closely with your guidelines.
We will send you regular project status reports. We use a combination of pre-determined update schedules (normally email) and ad-hoc meetings (usually tele-conferences, or live chat). Siliconbrain has developed a unique system and method for information-sharing, known as PMO. We would be glad to demo the system to you - it has floored many a client! With TeamTouch, you can keep live track of project plan, milestones, code status, bug status, timesheets status and a host of other software development metrics.
