But what if a competitor is charging less?
Our rates for are already highly competitive because of our low overhead. In considering your options, it’s important to be aware that you will get what you pay for. We are senior engineers and architects delivering high quality on everything we work on. We’ve brought on many clients that initially went with the ‘cheap’ option only to realize that they couldn’t go to market with the cheap end-product that was delivered. They end up spending more just to undo the damage done before starting over with us from scratch.
What is the benefit of hiring you for a project instead of hourly?
Hourly hiring is the best solution if you are looking to have one of our engineers report directly to you for general needs over a specific amount of time. The most appropriate example of this would be when you’re bridging for low headcount. When you have an end-product in mind the best solution is to hire us as an agency for your project. This provides you with a concise cost estimate and delivery timeframe for your product. It also grants you access to the collective brain power at Animal Labs at a flat rate that will always end up being the most cost effective way for you to achieve your goals.
If you have ongoing, intermittent needs the best engagement model for you is retainer. This way you have our team on stand-by with guaranteed response & resolution times to ensure you have 100% uptime and peace of mind.
Can you meet our security requirements?Animal Labs is fully versed on all security compliance requirements across multiple sectors. We can assure adherence to industry mandated regulations and work within those frameworks, as well as your unique company policies, to develop your product.
How does your staff augmentation model work?
Embedding one of our developers is easier and more efficient than hiring. You can expect a full-time employee without the traditional cost of on-boarding and benefits. We will work at a predetermined hourly rate remotely or partially-onsite at your discretion. You can also disengage us as quickly and easily as you engaged us.
I’m working on highly sensitive projects. Can you ensure confidentiality?We work almost exclusively on proprietary products. You own all work delivered and we are able to work off your NDA so that all your considerations are addressed. We can also connect you with client referrals upon request.
Can you design my web page or mobile app?Absolutely! We have full design services and can help you design an app that is on brand.
Can you implement our design work?Yes, we can implement any of the design you already have. We will need the files (photoshop, sketch, or software of your choosing) as well as a consultation to go over any expected interactivity with the provided designs once they are live.
How soon can you start?
Usually in 30 days or less, depending on the resources needed. We will always strive to start as quickly as possible for you.in
