This is the process in which your genie will deliver your requirements. Remember, this genie can deliver projects worldwide.
Needs analysis and requirements specification
The more I know about what you need the better service I can deliver!
Every project is different. You tell me exactly what you need done and I will then evaluate your requirements and send you a proposal document. Within the proposal document, I will break up your project by task, cost and timescale so that you are clear on what is involved.
At the end of the document are my standard terms and conditions. Once you are in acceptance of the proposal, this means you are also in acceptance of my terms and conditions. These form a binding contract, so it's important to read these as well as the other parts of the document.
In most cases, this genie requires a deposit to be made before commencing development. The amount will be documented in the requirements document. Once this is settled, the first draft of your project will be prepared in accordance with the requirements document that was delivered to you and a prototype of the product will follow.
Here you will get the chance to review what I have done and suggest any changes that you may need. The job isn't done until you are 100% satisfied with the output!
Once everyone involved have indicated that they are happy with the product, then the project is essentially signed off/agreed on completion and the remainder of the budget settled.
Once the remainder is settled, then the final version of the product is published and, if required, placed online to replace the prototype version.
