Bespoke Spreadsheet Applications and Dashboards

Project scopes are the foundation of successful application development and will ensure your project will be done on time and on budget. Until I have a full understanding of the main purpose, or objective, of your spreadsheet or dashboard, what pains or problems it will solve and where any data will come from or be connected to, then it’s very difficult to provide a fixed quotation to build it for you. Working out how I will build what you want to achieve can take quite a lot of time. For this reason, all bespoke applications start with a detailed project scope session.

We’ll have an online meeting where I gain a full understanding of what your application has to do. We’ll discuss all your ideas, the inputs needed and we’ll list the purpose of each sheet, table or form to be designed. We’ll discover what items (or fields) make up your datasets. We’ll then discuss the outputs or reports you’d like to create and what you’d like to see on them.

I’ll then go away and work on what you’ve told me. You’ll receive a detailed document containing a summary of every part of the application including descriptions of functionality and features along with mockups of the branded designs and reports. I’ll be able to tell you the timeframe to complete the work and provide you with a full cost breakdown.

At this point I will get your feedback and we can make any amendments to the scope based on that.

If you wish you could use this scope to ask someone else to build it for you but obviously I hope you won’t! If we start to work together then the cost of the scope will be included in the final quotation (and in the guide prices below). The scope will keep our project on track and focused as the creative work will have already been done, I just need to get on and build it.
