When you need something developed, whether it's a Web application or one for the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry, or a back-office system, PLAYXPERT is the company that can meet your needs.
When our prospects first learn about us, they usually consider all of their options. Often times, clients want to take matters into their own hands and choose from one of the following strategies to complete their project. We encourage you to consider your options and when you do, we believe you will ultimately choose to work with us!
Instead of choosing PLAYXPERT, some prospects decide to:
Hire Someone on Craiglist
Criagslist is a great resource, filled with buyers and sellers of almost anything. It's a great tool – we use it every day. If you are looking for a qualified, unified development team with strong leadership and cross-functional capabilities to make your project sing, this may not be the wisest of choices.
Build An Internal Team
Depending on the size and scope of the project and the ongoing need to maintain the systems, we often suggest that our customers build their own development team as we approach completion of their project. However, when you are just starting out and you need an integrated design, a comprehensive architecture, developers who can get stuff done quickly – and you need the project done yesterday - building a team may not be the right first step.
Outsource to Off-shore Developers
Although many people have learned their lesson by outsourcing their projects off-shore, there are still many who think that a $1,000 website is the norm and they're not going to talk to anyone unless they agree to that price. Good news: Off shore developers will say yes. In fact, they'll say yes to anything and as long as you pay them something, they will keep saying yes. It often doesn't result in a finished product, it will cost you time and heart-ache as you attempt to communicate with them (not to mention the opportunity cost). In the end you will likely spend well over the promised price and have nothing to show for it.
Don't get us wrong, we're big believers in leveraging a global development team to build software. We do it ourselves using our Extended Developer Network. The difference is that we're in the business of doing this and we are a team of technologists who can smell a rat when work isn't really being done but bills continue to mount. If you are considering an off-shore team, we encourage you to contact us and ask about our Extended Developer Network which reduces overall costs – but increases the probability of success for your project.
