Our goal is to become your trusted extended team and help you succeed in your business goal. We immerse ourselves in the problem you are trying to solve- what we do depends on your needs. So if you are just starting, we would help you break down and define your business goals, target users, prioritize features, build a roadmap, your UI/UX, and your MVP. If you have worked on your UI already, we could help you evaluate and critique it before sending it to development. We can assist you with preparing detailed project estimations and will be happy to outline your project specs, prepare wireframes, the scope of work, API documentation, and the required features list.

Regarding project development, we will set up your server-side architecture, front end, back end, graphic and UI-UX design, and create back-office consoles.

If you have an idea, contact us using our online form, e-mail, or WhatsApp. We'll talk it over. Just be sure to prepare as much information about your idea as possible; it will benefit further cooperation. Think of your preparation as if you were writing a letter to your grandmother telling her what you wanted to create. Keep it simple and think about all the questions she might ask.

This question is crucial as it can influence your budget, reach, timeline, marketing, and, ultimately, your success. Needless to say, both routes have their pros and cons. Mobile apps are undoubtedly more expensive but will provide you with advanced UX opportunities plus more data collection & monetization capabilities than web applications. But the decision should also consider your users, for example, which devices do they prefer?

We can discuss this when you share your idea with us and give you our perspective on it. In the end, remember whichever one you weigh as a better option, we will be able to help you develop it.

Well, the most important thing to know is what you want to accomplish. Why do you need this software? Who will use it? What should it do? Having a clear vision in mind will help you save time and money in the long run. Don't worry if you have no technical experience; the question below addresses exactly this concern.

Did you know that Brian Chesky of Airbnb, Sean Rad of Tinder, and Evan Sharp of Pinterest are just 3 of the numerous wildly successful non-technical founders who founded technology-based companies? As an entrepreneur, as long as you know your business, your users, and the problem you are solving, you can leave the technical side to us experts; that's what we're here for. We welcome your experience if you have it, but if not, we will guide you through the whole process and explain everything. So focus on your needs, and we will ensure to fulfill them.

The time taken is project specific as it depends on your scope of work and the resources allocated. We will need to understand your idea to give you a precise answer. On that basis, we prepare your project scope, estimated time, resources, and budget. Again, depending on the scope and resource allocation- our projects run anywhere from 4 weeks to several months.

We break down every project into milestones that you sign off. We then evaluate the progress consistently against this milestone plan. Completed builds at every stage go through rigorous quality testing and are shared with you for your feedback. Furthermore, our support continues even after your project goes live; we offer free technical support for a fixed period after your project is delivered to cover any bugs that may have been missed at the development stage.

We thoroughly monitor our developers and control how much time they spend on each task. We also have a dedicated delivery team that ensures that the reported effort is linked to operational efficiency. When we work on a time and resource basis, we will share detailed time reports with you before any billing is done.

There is no problem at all; in fact, we believe that positive partnerships always result in better outcomes and sustained relationships. That's why we involve you right from the planning stage. We will also invite you to evaluate and give feedback on the work completed.

Hiring your own software developers can be a wise choice if you are an established business with a technology leader to bring it all together. But often, this is hard to accomplish, even for technical founders. The reason is that an entrepreneur needs to wear so many hats doing everything in-house. This could lead to resource and time inefficiency. For starters, the recruitment process is time-consuming, and the costs of maintaining a full-stack in-house programming team are very high. Hiring us will take away a lot of your headaches, and you will also have an exact handle on your costs. Once your project is live and successful, you may always employ your own software engineers, but hiring us can help you save a lot of money and time.

Depending on your requirements and your in-house team capabilities, we can help you even after your project and the post-delivery service period is complete. Post-delivery services include ongoing technical support, app maintenance, server maintenance, version and certificate updates, digital marketing, SEO, and SEM.

Yes, absolutely! All version updates can be easily supported to keep your apps up to date and benefiting from the latest improvements.

We understand that you may want to change the team that has so far worked with you, or you may want to add new features to your existing product. We are happy to connect with you for this. Simply share your brief with us through the Contact form on our website, and we will be glad to discuss it. Depending on your requirement, we may need to conduct a UX or code quality audit. Rest assured, we will advise you on our recommended way forward.

Will this contact person be available throughout the time the software is being developed? Yes. All development projects have a project lead responsible for client liaison, project management, and documentation. Consider him or her as your guide and information source throughout our cooperation.

The cost of a development project needs to be determined on a case-by-case basis. The reason is that each project is unique in its scope, the recommended technology stack, the resources needed, and the time required. We know this might not be the answer you wished to get, but this is the fact. To ensure that we deliver the best quality service, at 7 Pillars , our focus is on always providing you with top talent for any technology stack required, one who can grasp your concept quickly and deliver significant value.

As 7 Pillars, together we have 12 years of experience. We've worked with and completed projects across industry verticals -ecommerce, e-learning, international food and drink companies, start-ups, fintech, telecommunications, dating, sports, and many more.

We are experienced in creating Android, and iOS Mobile apps, Web and IoT apps, augmented reality, Blockchain, AI/ML, Ui/UX, and Chatbots. Check out our portfolio to learn more.
