Gearheart works on a time and materials basis. We provide dedicated teams per project. Payments are periodic. Periods are dependent on project size and can vary between one week to a month. Prepayment for the first period is required before development starts.
We use online time tracking and only bill for time actually worked.
Please feel free to contact us if you need any clarification, or if you would like a quote on your project.
Our development is organized in weekly sprints. Payment schedules are independent of sprints and development. This system has proven to be more convenient for both our clients’ and our own accounting systems.
When a project begins we agree on the team structure and a periodic payment schedule. The project specifics will determine how the period varies - from one week to a month.
Prepayments are made at the beginning of the period. At the end of the period we provide a detailed report on work completed and hours expended. Payment overages extend into the following period.
We provide our developers with clearly defined tasks and clients receive well-tested code. To ensure this happens for each project we provide a team. For example:
As long as there are enough tasks on the project, the team is working full time only on that project.
