Solution Class Comparison
Are there differences between an A, B and C-level website solution? Absolutely. As with any product or service, the larger the budget, the more time and consideration our expert developers, designers, analysts and architects can put into crafting your solution. From an enhanced and modern user interface to draw your users in, to a streamlined and efficient back-end database and class architecture to save your visitors valuable time, an A-class solution will out-perform in every measurable way. In this section we describe the differences our clients can expect between the various solution classes.
So Why Pay More?
Websites and apps are ubiquitous and considered an extension of the organization. Creating an effective solution that gives users a positive overall experience is therefore critical to forming the right impression. In studies, web and app users consistently confirm that the aspects of an application’s design, speed and overall usability impact their trust of a company and their willingness to remain and make a purchase. Thus, developing solutions that are modern and easy to use is critical for converting your users. The newer methods and features take more time to plan and develop and therefore require a higher budget. If sales conversions and high-traffic flow are key to an organization’s online strategy, then we recommend either the Value or Performance solutions.
Another area where your solution class will have a noticeable impact is on the interpretation of requirements. In a C-level solution, Prospus will build specifically to the requirements received and formalized. So long as we achieve the end results specified, then we will consider our work complete. This may mean, however, that the final result is not the most user-friendly. It may also mean that certain elements that were not specified are not included in the scope of work. Economy solutions are aimed at building solution with the least amount of outlay. Since full requirements are often unknown at the outset, there is a higher chance that some features or requirements will be missed. In an Economy solution, those will be fully billable.
Solution requirements are open to interpretation. A working system for one person, is an unusable system for another. The Solution Class concept is Prospus’ unique approach to relating requirements and scope to budget. This manifests In a few important ways, notably around how we handle requirements. In a C-level Economy solution, we build strictly to specific requirements.
The Performance-Class Solution
Performance-class solutions are built to compete, win and impress while doing so. Every aspect of an A-level Prospus solution is finessed into existence only after evaluating all possible options and collaborating with key stakeholders to maximize performance, user experience and impact. These solutions are ideal for established organizations looking to update and improve upon existing online applications, new market entrants looking to carve out a space for themselves in a competitive arena, or players looking to deliver something unique and exceptional.
The Value-Class Solution
Value-class solutions are built to deliver the maximum amount of functionality and best possible user experience within a set, mid-range budget. B-level Prospus solutions are a harmonious blend of performance and economy; solid and reliable enough to perform the job they were designed for, yet engineered to take advantage of lower-cost components which don’t compromise their objective and future upgradeability. These solutions fit most purposes and offer piece-of-mind and assurance.
The Economy-Class Solution
Economy-class solutions are the hatchbacks of software, designed to achieve a specific objective without any extraneous expenditures. While not engineered to be the fastest, easiest, most user-friendly platforms, C-level solutions are built solid and dependable to get the job done at the lowest-possible price level. In choosing a C-level solution it is essential that the buyer beware of inherent platform limitations and compromises they will be making. And while a C-level solution is primarily composed of open source components, the range of available software is substantial and increasing every day, so even budget-level solutions can be quite impressive.
