Hire a Software Team from $6,000 USD per month

  • Team based budgeted pricing is a popular pricing model.  The concept is simple: Hire a team of developers who are technology layer experts (database, user interface, business domain knowledge), each with specialized layer based skills for a single flat rate per month.  By utilizing 3 or 4 developers who each focus on certain development aspects of the project, each working less hours while each focusing on their technology specialty, higher quality code is developed much faster. As well, the code is far more secure, performance driven and provides true separation of concerns, while also providing an optimal infrastructure for unit testing and ensuring maintainable code for the life cycle. This also means that your software maintenance costs will be reduced by as much as 40% (based upon our case studies).
  • As agreed by the software development industry, in the fast advancing software development environment, a single developer can no longer be competent in all development layers and technologies.  Each development layer is now a completely separate career.  For example, Database layer technologies are completely different than the User Interface layer.  Testing and load balancing requires different tools and development methodologies.   And each of these layers requires different education, security and performance knowledge.  By engaging a team, specifically selected for your project, developers code faster due to their retained knowledge, experience and expertise.  This approach also ensures separation on concerns, it drastically reduces maintenance costs (by 40%) while also ensuring optimal security and performance.  The fact is, code drips from a developer’s fingertips who types from retained knowledge gained from years of technology focused experience.  A single developer can be stuck for weeks, while a team just gracefully codes, tests and verifies their effort without delay.
  • Team based pricing is available for as little as $6k USD per month.  The team can be dynamically increased or reduced when required.  This is important, as every project has peaks and dormant development periods.
  • The team based pricing model requires slightly more project management than compared to hiring a single developer.  However, Campbell Software provides this requirement at no additional cost.  With Campbell Software, you can actually hire multiple teams, with each team separately working on a specific requirement or sub-project, without additional effort on your part nor inuring any additional project management costs.
  • A key point of the Team Based Pricing model is that is can NEVER be over budget since you set the monthly budget.
  • Just tell us what your monthly budget is.  After identifying technology stack requirements, domain knowledge and experience, we will hand select a custom team for you, all for a flat rate per month.

Top Rated Custom Software Development

Campbell Software has worked on many projects for clients with shoestring budgets.

What some people do not understand is that if your budget is tight, you cannot afford to hire the cheapest people.  Many of our clients come to us to get projects back on track after they discovered the cheapest resource cost them far more money than they thought they would save.

Here’s why:  Cheap developers are less experienced.  They take longer to code. They will unknowingly introduce security and performance issues.  Their code will be tightly coupled.  You will pay them for fixing messes they created.  Critical bugs will be discovered after release.  The list of risks goes on.

Campbell Custom Software Development TeamCampbell Software, a trusted Canadian company, provides clients with a legal corporate guarantee.  Unlike off-shore companies, where liability courts have a 10 year backlog, our corporate promise is a Canadian promise.  It is legally enforceable and it is our pleasure to deliver our promise to you.

We use Microsoft Visual Studio for most of our projects.  As per Microsoft project analysis reports, our cost per line of code is 60% less than the industry standard.  Our Maintainability Index score averages 55% less (easier and less costly to maintain) than industry standards.  Microsoft Class Coupling, Cyclomatic Complexity and Depth of Inheritance Analysis report scores our quality of our work product higher than in-house developers (based upon independent industry measurements).

How do we achieve this?  Our success is not an industry secret.  Quite simply, we pay very close attention to the processes and details. And we hire only experienced, proven developers.

For software development, you need experienced people.  We code faster since our skill sets, coding languages, knowledge and project management has been honed by decades of experience.  We don’t need to figure stuff out, we know it.  We know workarounds to bugs in DLL libraries.  We know how NOT to introduce performance or security issues.  “Separation of Concerns” architecture is a standard we adhere to.  We have a proven track record of delivering successful projects. That means higher quality software. Faster, for less.

From a corporate quality verification perspective, we employ a specialized “QA” team to verify and test the code written by our developers.  The QA Team’s job is to do everything they can to crash and break the developers code (we consider it a sin for a developer to proof their own releases).  Our QA team also provides stakeholders with recordings (deliverables proof of delivery).  We also have specialized source code reviewers who review code check-ins via our secure, private Team Foundation Source code repository server.  The code reviewers look for code weaknesses, they ensure that code relates and complies with the deliverable requirements.  When code reviewers discover issues or have concerns, they notify the team lead.  As well, our we sit down with each developer a few times each day, just to check-in and confirm the level of expected progress is occurring.  These continuous, cyclic confirmation and verification processes ensure software products we develop are solid, stable, secure and performance driven.  These processes are also critical to keep the project timeline on track and costs on budget.

“Gary Campbell’s approach to development is unique in that he understands that today’s developers cannot be experts in all technologies.  By separating development into a proven architecture, and then further separating the layers to specific skill sets, his infrastructure forces developers to develop software using a limited but expert skill set.  This development approach provides true separation of concerns, while also providing an optimal infrastructure for unit testing and ensuring maintainable code for the life cycle.”Dino Esposito, MVP, Author of 20+ software books

Today, IT projects are comprised of many complex software technologies, load balanced hardware architecture, using different operating systems, different types of servers with a wide range of expectations of mobility device reach.

A single developer can no longer be expert in all of these technologies.  Many technologies (such as iOS or data layer or UI) are actually separate careers.  Just one of these technology layers is tough to keep current with.

Today, a single developer is severely challenged, 70% of their day is consumed with on-the-fly learning and fixing.

With Campbell Software, you will have a team of highly skilled developers, with retained knowledge in specific technologies and layers, specifically selected for your project’s “tech stack” and layers, coding to your exact specifications.

Expert Development.  Proven Track Record.  Transparency from start to finish.
