We want your consultation experience with us to be pleasant and successful. It is our goal to provide you with an efficient and robust database for storing your data and an easy to use data collection application. To reach that goal, we will work closely with you during the solution exploration and data structure visualization stages. Your feedback will be key in providing you with a successful solution.
Stage 1: Solution Exploration
During this initial stage, we will meet in person or via a conference call to discuss your project goals. We will discuss your project, the data that you plan to collect, and your goals for analyses. If we are revamping a current database or data store, this would be the time to discuss your past methods and integration into a new system. We will also create a list of any equipment you will need assistance in acquiring. This stage is completely free.
Stage 2: Data Structure Visualization and Proposal
During this stage, we will begin designing the basic elements and structure of your custom database and application. We will create a proposal defining the scope of work for the project and a cost estimate. The proposal will also include digital sketches of the various forms and navigation paths of your mobile or desktop application. This stage is also free.
Stage 3: Solution Construction
Upon your approval of our proposal, we will begin constructing your database and application. We will contact you with major potential changes to the proposed solution, but our primary goal is to bring you a working draft quickly. The draft application will give you a chance to get a feel for what works or does not work for you. Early in this stage, large changes can still easily be made to the database structure.
Stage 4: Solution Completion
At the final stage, you will receive a polished, working copy of your database and application.
At the end of stage four you will receive:
