Frequently Asked Questions

Why Bulgaria?

eComDev Studio is based in the marine capital of Bulgaria - Varna. The first reason for choosing Varna is simple - as everybody probably knows, the programming costs in Bulgaria are presently one of the lowest on the software market. Due to the specific economic conditions, we can afford to offer prices much lower compared to the prices offered by companies in other countries for similar services. The other reason is that the Bulgarian programmers have the second highest SAT scores worldwide, and in addition to that - the majority of them are fluent in English.

Initial Information on a Project

We receive initial information on a project in the form most suitable for you. In case you already have a specification of a product, we will study it and send you a set-price offer. If you like us to elaborate a specification corresponding to your requirements, this is not a problem either. We are always ready to send our project manager in order to clarify and discuss all details at your location. It happens rather often that the problems important for the project are settled only in the course of the project. In this case as well, we will do our best to meet your requirements.

How do we start working for a customer?

Working with non-Bulgarian clients we have developed a short model of operation when working with new clients. Usually we expect to be assigned a small task by the client. This task has important implications for both parties involved. On our side we can make certain we have the expertise and know how to work for the client and get an idea of the coding standards and work involved in order to make sure that future assignments will be of the required quality. The client in turn can more or less evaluate our work in a way that would allow him to decide whether working with us is a viable option. This also helps the client to decide on the size and complexity of the task to be assigned for us to work upon.

Our Team

After a contract is signed we form a team of programmers, who would work specifically for that client. The team is headed by the person directly in charge for the completion of the project, in this way this person is already informed of the requirements of the tasks assigned. The initial team needed for this work usually is not larger than 4-5 people. If the quantity of the work requires it, we can provide software programmers in addition.

How we contract our services out?

Generally we work on a project base system. This means that the client offers a project, which needs development, then our chief software engineer and the respective team leader evaluates the length of work and complexity of the task involved. We make development plan and time estimate of this project as well as we include a period of testing and bug fixing as part of the task. If a project generally takes longer than one month to complete we offer to break it down into smaller phases of development, so as to ensure a better system of control of performance and quality standards in the work completed.
