SeedCode started out building custom software projects for small businesses and enterprise workgroups. Although our focus has shifted toward making frameworks that help other developers thrive, we still love a good challenge, so we carve out time for a few custom software projects every year, from small-scale to more complex.
On the simpler side, we help our customers modify our templates, often using SeedCode Complete as a platform to start new solutions. When we’re helping our customers do this, they generally come to us when they have technical hurdles and we’ll quote them 4-10 hour interventions to craft a new feature for them and then let them get back to work building their solution. Our rate for this is $220/hr and we can usually give fixed-price quotes for small mods or new features that can be completely described upfront.
On the other end of things, we do a few larger projects where we’ll use a combination of SeedCode apps as a platform for an extensive new solution. Solutions like this can’t be completely described upfront so the work is a mixture of research, prototyping, and development; we build these solutions in an agile fashion, doing lots of small builds and deploying them every two weeks. For this kind of development, we’re looking for projects in the $70k / year range.
And, of course, there is something in between where we may help a customer build out a scheduling system based on DayBack Calendar–maybe assisting their in-house or local developer with the trickier parts of scheduling while their developer fleshes out contacts, jobs etc. These projects can range from $5k to $40k depending on how elaborate things get.
Whatever solution you need, the best way to start is to talk to one of us. We’ll help you ﬁgure out the best way to proceed.
