Q: Who are you guys and where are you located?
Q: Do you have your own development centre or do you sub-contract projects?
Q:What kind of development work do you undertake at this centre?
Q: If I want to hire DotNetNuke (DNN) developers from you, how do I do it?
Q: How much time does a DNN developer take to get started on my project once I sign the contract and clear the initial payment?
A:In usual practice it takes about 2 working days for a DNN developer to start working on your project. As soon as we receive your initial payment, your project gets registered with our accounts team. In the meantime we conduct a kickoff meeting with our project manager, technical heads, accounts head, and hired DNN developers. In this meeting the sales rep passes on the project details and requirements to the participating members. We then introduce the developer to you in an introductory call where you can gauge his technical abilities. Once you are satisfied, the developer can start working on your project.
In case you have made the payment and need us to start working on your project without waiting for the actual receipt, you can mail us a scanned copy of the TT order and we can commence with the proceedings.

Q: And what happens if my assigned DNN developer takes a day off or goes on a vacation or even quits?
Q: I am a bit worried about my business data getting poached or misused. Do you have any measures in place to safeguard my project specifications and intellectual property?
A:We understand your concern over data security and so we have watertight security measures in place. First of all, any kind of data or information generated over the development process belongs to you. As a result, the ownership of such data vests in you which means we as a company or our developers cannot sell, transfer, or use this data. Secondly, our DNN developers are bound by confidentiality contracts which bar them from disclosing your project details.
We have our development premises monitored 24×7 through CCTV cameras. Our developers are further not allowed to carry storage devices or mobile phones at their workstations. Any kind of mail going out of the enterprise is scanned and filtered for sensitive information.
Q: Do your DNN developers have any added advantage other than technical proficiency?
Q: There are other firms out there who are offering DNN developers for hire at cheaper rates. Then why should I go ahead with your company?
A: We do know that we have a highly competitive market. But we have never participated in a price war with our competitors. We believe that our clients are looking for quality and not just cost savings.
We have been into business for a decade now. This in and of itself speaks volumes about our quality standards and commitment levels. We are Microsoft Certified Gold Partner which makes us champion of all Microsoft frameworks. We have experience of successfully delivering 600+ projects. We have a 400+ international client base.

As for participation, you play a very instrumental role in team selection. We send you the resume of the potential team members shortlisted by us for review. You can verify the suitability of their technical skills for your development project.
Q: I know my project is going to require long-term engagement. But I am still not sure about your technical excellence and service levels. Can you arrange some sort of test run for me?
Q: But I am also worried about the implementation part. Would you guys be able to handle it from an offshore centre?
Q: And what about the source code produced by this team? Who will own it?
