FAQ
  1. How big of a project can you handle?

    Initially, for a new client, we prefer dealing with projects in the range of 30 hours to 1000 hours (approx. time required to complete the entire project) in size in a month. Then we can increase the size gradually, and once we get fully accustomed to the client’s specific requirements, we would be happy to handle projects of any size of that particular client.

  2. How can I be sure of your service quality?

    We can provide you with the necessary samples. If you so require, we would be happy to provide you with a no obligation free trial to prove our competence as well as our quality.

  3. How do you charge, per hour or per project?

    Our service charges / rates mostly depend on the complexity of the project.

  4. What is your process and time taken for ramping up the team?

    • Gather requirements
    • Check internal resource availability and allocation
    • Re-assign team members appropriately

    Typically, the time taken to ramp up the team depends entirely on the project size. For instance, we will require up to one week’s time for projects of 1000 hours in size.

  8. What is the normal procedure you follow for CAD projects?

    Clients provide us with the inputs and requirements via e-mail, ftp or as hard copies. We then review the requirements including expected delivery time, and contact client for further clarifications, if any. We then submit quote for the project based on the requirement analysis. We then send status updates and proofs of the project in a pre-defined timely manner. Incorporate changes as per feedback from the client and complete the project, and send it back to the client within the committed delivery time/schedule.
