Consultant; Web Biz

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

Andrew R. Taylor

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.

Martin J Smith

We have used Remote Programmer for last 13 years (as on Jan 2020) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 500 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.

Martin Gibbons

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

Mohammed Moulay

Consultant; Web Biz

Please allow me to start with a shocking news. More than 90% of the web venture fails.  And most fail because those projects are not defined properly.  You will discover following issues once you from the next day of the launch.  

  1. Some important features have been overlooked.
  2. Many developed features has become obsolete
  3. Some features have been developed in a non-practical way.
  4. And so on.

The result is blaming each other. But you could really avoid it by simply defining the project properly.  You should do the homework; keep yourself up-to-date in the field you are going to work and write down in a way such that the developers can understand what actually you have in your mind.

But this requires a years of tech, business and marketing experiences. You do not have. We can help you at a nominal cost. We have people in our company with more than 19 years experience in these fields.
