We are primarily a service business, so if there are commercially available hardware that meets your needs, we'll buy it and integrate it for you. If not, we'll build it cheap and integrate it with our software solutions.
Most of our software will be web-based and will cost between $2,000 to $4,000 to develop depending on complexity. Very simple requirements may cost below $2,000.
Cost of operating the server is free for the first year and subsequent years will typically cost less than $20/month. We'll provide you with all the software that is developed for you, so you're free to source for alternative web-hosting.
Contact us and we'll be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs and provide a quote.
We can't really estimate hardware costs, since it'll depend heavily on the quantity and type. It can range from less than $100 per unit for very simple and low cost devices, to over $1,000 per unit for more complex solutions.
If the hardware is available off-the-shelf, we can purchase it for you at a nominal mark-up (typically 10%). Our business is in developing customized solutions, not hardware trading, so you can also choose to purchase the hardware yourself.
Cost of operating the server is the same as the software only service, and as always, we would be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs.
