What project management methodology do you use?
All our projects run Agile as from our experience this is by far the best approach to software development.

Can you help me with the ‘business’ side?
Yes of course! At Hitori we do much more than just build apps and websites. Our team has decades of experience in digital/tech and business; we pride ourselves on providing real-world advice for all projects we are involved.

Do you work with technology partners?
Yes, Hitori has established technology partnerships and working relationships with internal staff at Apple, Google, SAP, Amazon AWS, Australian Digital Health Agency, Telerik, HealthDirect & Garmin.

Do you with with anyone?
Although we work with a wide variety of client types we won’t work with just anyone (not these days anyway!). We much prefer to partner with clients and work on projects that we believe in; projects making a positive change and impact (albeit in a business, tribe/group, or the wider society). We find we are more dedicated and proud of the work we produce when we believe in the project/product we are building and can 100% back our clients (and build on their ideas) + see the positive change we are creating together.

Do we outsource any work?
No, our design & development team is located locally in our South Melbourne studio.

Do you provide proposal/RFP’s?
We don’t typically provide big fancy proposals. Why? Simply put we find our time is better invested ‘wowing’ you with actual work than proposals; but if you need one just let us know.

Do you provide fixed price quotes or pay by the hour?
We can work on a fixed price project based on an agreed fixed scope/functional document (usually our quote which is created from discussions &/or your brief or designs); OR we can work on-going under an hourly arrangement for as long or a little as you like; this can be discussed and agreed upon (our goal either way is to establish a long-term relationship with you and your business/startup).

How much does it cost to work with you?
Unless you only need updates to an existing project or a simple website or MVP you should budget ~25-50k+ for a brand new website, web or mobile app build and ~50-100k+ for more complex multi-platform apps. We are a small, specialised & independent agency and intend to keep it that way (we’re also family owned!); we work closely to build long term relationships with our clients and solid scalable technology solutions.

How long will it take to build/deliver my project?
It really depends on the complexity of your project; a good guide is ~3-6 months. It can take more or less if your budget/investment is on the high end as we can allocate more developers to your project but it also depends what you are like to work with as a client; we do think “Anything worth doing, is worth doing right“.

Can you host my website/app?
Yes we also provide DevOps so can setup the required servers and hosting infrastructure for your platform/application, load test for X concurrent users and provide on-going monitoring and maintenance.
