I am looking to get an Andriod based Taxi aggregator app developed similar to Uber and Ola with some new features. I am looking to invite quotes from people who have developed similar Apps and have proven track record in developing Enterprise grade Andriod applications that are hosted and managed on the cloud.
Some of the things I would expect anyone bidding to have is
1. Should be willing to link the payment key milestones e.g. App go live, Stabilisation exit. 50% plus payment will be linked to app go live and 1-3 months post app go-live.
2. Should be willing to work together for next 3-5 years and should show what investment you are willing to do to build the relation.
3. Should be willing to sign a NDA and contract and stick to it.
4. Clear understanding of change request process, Not like implementing a change and asking for more money after implementing it. Agree upfront if any defect raised are considered as changed.
5. Strong defect management process and good testing team. willing to work in Agile or iterative waterfall model
6. Should have strong project management skills and should have though through what things like project phases and how much time you need from client.
7. Good stakeholder management skills and being response and keeping Client informed and planning ahead calls that are required to complete the project.
8. Willing to name the resources working on the project and share the CV’s
9. Preference will be given to teams who have prior experience of building Taxi aggregator apps and preferably based out of Kerala, India
Only inviting request from serious bidders and not someone looking for a short term project. Long term partnership bids only with App development and support fully thought through. Should have capability to to develop IOS App also, since the App will be scaled to IOS later.
Engagement model could be fixed price or T&M, please propose a model that you think will be the best.
