Robust development process in digital TV projects
The digital TV area is one of the most dynamic: competencies are getting outdated, technologies are developing quickly. That is why the industry seeks narrow expertise and developers with versatile qualifications.
We form and dedicate our expert teams to targeted tasks as soon as the clients need that. That measure saves 30-50% of the costs. The average volume of these activities can result in 2000-3000 hours. Clients save around $20 000-30 000 on average.
At least 15% of the working time all our developers spend on training and professional growth without exception
Due to our business model's specific nature, we continuously face tasks and challenges from different technological areas. That has allowed us to accumulate in-depth experience, which we are always ready to share with our clients and partners
Working with us, clients get access not only to the core team but also to the knowledge base accumulated by Promwad over the years
We build effective relations with technological vendors
Vendors seek support and engineers on the local market. Besides, they struggle while promoting their products and accepting adequate feedback; hence, it is challenging to eliminate bugs and deliver high-quality SDKs.
Through a comprehensive approach and a well-established development & management process, we can reduce time and labor costs on projects that require vendors' solutions integration by 7-12% of the market average. With an average volume of $500 000-700 000, this 7% can save customers $50 000 and more.
We integrate various vendors' solutions into our customers' products, so we often see bottlenecks or undetected benefits that add value to our interaction with vendors
Not being a manufacturer, but rather a user or even a consumer, we can form real and honest feedback on performance, usability, and quality of this or that solution
