Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Discovery a necessary step before having GST start coding?
The bottom line: Discovery sets expectations around how long your initial development plan will take and how much it will cost. Beyond this, we help you understand what your software will look like, what it will be made of, and how big of a team and which skill sets will be needed to accomplish your near-term goals. We also help you think more deeply about your customer and the market you're addressing as a whole.
If I already have some of the deliverables noted in the Discovery engagement, can you reduce the cost?
GST's Discovery is the minimum price for packaged service. We can consider providing additional deliverables or discuss a credit towards your development engagement.
How much should I expect to spend on developing a new idea into dependable customer-facing technology?
The simple answer is that it will always cost you more than you have budgeted. That's the nature of software, especially in the B2B SaaS world. Our job at GST is to guide you towards maximizing your ROI for the best feature or module to build next. A good rule of thumb is that you should expect to explore your idea for $10K, fund your MVP for $100-$150K, get customer feedback and maintain your MVP for $50K, and then do customer requested additional development for another $50-$100K all within the first 12 months.
