Most vendors choose to hide their pricing model to the public,
usually because their pricing strategy is so complicated and over-protective of their interests you
would need half a dozen lawyers to decipher and negotiate the proposed contract..
Our commitment to transparency and honesty in how we operate means we are nothing like these vendors.
The big scary numbers
Our pricing strategy is based upon trust between you and us, and follows a broader time and materials (T&M) pricing model.
Our projects carry a 25% deposit and we bill every second week for the accumulated daily services of resources spent on your software. Currently, we have two resources we bill for: designers and developers.
Developers are billed at $1,000 AUD per day of work, where we define a day as 7.2 hours averaged over a fortnight.
Designers are billed at $700 AUD per day of work, they are usually not required for the majority of a project.
Project managers, QA engineers and software testers are not billed explicitely.
All logged days of work come with detailed information about what was being developed when and how long it took. We take this white-box approach because if we were in our client's shoes, we too would want to be confident in our vendor's transparency.
In the end what matters to us most is the mark we leave on the work we complete. A super successful project to us is one that is completed earlier and below initially estimated budgets, all while maintaining a high standard. A happy client throughout & at handover is worth more to us than a dragged-on project that gave us another 20 billed days of professional labour with no hopes of a continuing relationship.
For small business owners, rest assured our pricing is beyond competitive when one considers we are capable of delivering small projects in turnaround times in the days, not weeks. For perspective, know that what a Zylon dev can do in a day with Vue, a typical PHP developer could take over a week to mimic (that's not even taking into account the foundations for future dev work for changes / upgrades).
