Maintenance of a Large Existing Website

From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

We have used Remote Programmer for last 77 months (as on March 2014) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 400 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.

Maintenance of a Large Existing Web Project

You might get a lot of PHP companies for making a new website but you will find a very few of them who provide proper maintenance support in the long term. Because most new companies develop projects with newbie’s, but maintenance of a large web application requires experts.  

If you have any PHP application running over years and facing maintenance issue, or simply want to outsource the work to a reliable hand to cut the cost you must contact us.  It   is not an issue with us how much complex it is. If might be connected to multiple systems, it might have PHP android/iPhone client - we will take the maintenance contract after just ensuring that the codes written has maintained quality standard to an acceptable level. 

However, please note, we will not accept any contract for any application that was never been successfully launched.  In most cases, those projects are done by inefficient people and went unmanageable at some point of the SDLC.

We have several teams comprising 3-10 years senior programmers and architects who can take this responsibility.
 

How to move forward?

Working on a project written by a 3rd party is not an easy job.  But it is not impossible either.  However, we will not be in a position to give you any fixed cost estimate as we have no knowledge of your project. It is never possible by us to know what was in the mind of the developer s and project managers.  It requires a gradual transfer of knowledge. Here are the steps that worked in the past

  1. We discuss about the existing  project and the future tasks those needs to  be done
  2. You send us all possible documents/details of the project that includes database structure, sample codes, access details to explore different part of the applications and documentation done by the developer if any.
  3. We will review and tell you whether we will serve you or not. We will simply say no, if we see that we will not able to give the right service. No cost so far.
  4. We will suggest you to  hire a part time senior or specialist developer  of XX hours in a month depending  your requirement
  5. After you bought, he will start working on your project. In the first month he may take 5 hours to fix 1 hour work, because a lot of time will go in making the knowledgebase. To offset the cost, we will give 30% discount on the first month bill.
  6. From the 2nd month things will start become normal.
  7. After some months you will hardly believe that we did not develop the system originally.

We provide long term support so you can avoid the hassle of maintaining in-house and save a lot of money. You can contact us anytime online.
