Ingen Software defines a small project as one that requires 100 billable hours or less. The development of these smaller projects can create the following advantages:
- Software is crafted to the user’s needs
- Current OASIS limitations can be resolved
- A cost estimate is provided before the work begins and is typically a few thousand dollars
Requesting Small Project Development
- Identify the location within OASIS to be developed (e.g., on the OASIS Order screen we would like to...).
- Locate a similar feature in OASIS to reference.
- Develop a brief description of the business problem being addressed.
- Briefly describe the feature to be implemented.
THIS IS AN ENGINEERING PROBLEM. Responses to requests are not returned immediately. Development does not begin immediately. First, our developers are often working on multiple projects at one time. Also, each request is not treated as a simple modification. In many cases, the developer must do some research before responding to the request.
When the request is “signed off” by the client and Ingen Software, development will begin when a programmer is available. Using the specification, a project manager and programmer will work together to deliver as specified. In some cases, system limitations may not allow the programmer to complete the task as specified. If this occurs, you will be contacted to adjust the specification or drop the request.
When the code is complete, you will be added to the BETA software downloads for OASIS. Your customizations to OASIS will be added to our software deployment server and automatically downloaded with the next OASIS update (only you receive the update – no other users will receive your customization). You will be contacted to review the customizations with the project manager. The project manager will work with the programmer on any adjustments to the customization.
Billing terms may vary, but most bill 30 days after you are sent the initial download. Long-running projects will bill monthly. Sales tax may apply.
You will be given an estimate of time to completion, but this is no guarantee. Problems may arise requiring the development team to work around a limitation in OASIS or other software.
INGEN SOFTWARE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO STOP DEVELOPMENT FOR ANY REASON.
Request is sent to Support@OasisSalesSoftware.com.
Please allow two weeks for the review. The more information provided, the faster we are able to process the request. In most cases, we will have to review the request with you to ensure we fully understand the code to be developed.
The minimum charge for custom software development is $1,000. An estimate of the cost will be provided as part of the contract. You will be contacted if the cost will be larger than what was expected. Some projects do require a 50% non-refundable deposit to begin work.
You will be sent:
This is an engineering problem requiring design and development - each project takes a different amount of time. Additionally, a developer must be allocated to your request. Development work is seasonal and it may take time for a developer to be free to work the request. You will be notified weekly of the project status.
The custom software will automatically download to your system. A project manager will contact you to review the feature and work with the programmer to make any MINOR modifications.
Billing terms will be part of the contract and is typically 30 days after the code is downloaded or monthly for long-running projects.
You will not be charged maintenance for the custom software changes. We do not guarantee the software will be compatible with future versions of OASIS. You are responsible for the cost of any modifications to the custom software - including modifications to the custom software needed to make the software compliant with new versions of OASIS.
