Fixed cost, are you serious?
Yup! reinteractive is one of the largest Ruby on Rails dedicated
development agencies in the Asia Pacific region. Due to this we
have met many companies that have applications that just need constant
tweaks and maintenance to keep them online and functioning. Because
of our scale we can provide this to our customers at a fixed low price
and you can be happy knowing your app is being looked after by our
What work can I get done?
CodeCare is a professional service, and in delivery of this service
we focus 100% on critical bugs in the software (as reported by our
bug tracking tools).
But you get ten hours a month that you can have our team working on
anything you want.
How much time do I actually get?
Each month you get 10 hours of development to work on your app per
month you are subscribed. You can request us to do whatever you would
like on your application and we'll work on it in the priority
that makes the most sense for you and the application.
In addition to this, we will occasionally do proactive support at
our discretion, this includes fixing Rails versions, security updates
on software your application depends on as well as tooling or changes
to the application that will make the job of maintaining it simpler
and more efficient, these changes are not included in the 10 hours
per month and you aren't billed for them.
What if I need more than 10 hours?
No problem, you can purchase more on demand hours at any time, these
are given at a 15% discount on our standard list price, because we love
our CodeCare customers :)
What reporting will I get?
At the end of each month we will provide you with a written report on
the proactive work done on your application via email. This will include
all the helpdesk tickets we have completed on your application and
any other work done for you. We do not provide a specific hours
report or otherwise on the CodeCare service.
You will also get an itemised list by hour on the way your 10 hours
of development (and any additional hours) have been spent.
Can I get reinteractive to look after my operations and deployment as well?
Absolutely! We have our OpsCare
service for exactly that, and even better, if you get both OpsCare and
CodeCare, you get the CarePackage with a $75 discount each month!
Which of your development team work on this?
None of them :) We have a dedicated operations team at reinteractive
who look after our CodeCare
and OpsCare services.
Your code updates are done by this team and every change is reviewed
by at least one other person on our team to ensure quality before
it is published.
We have an active development team on the application, can we use
No. CodeCare is designed to be a maintenance service that runs when
you do not have an existing development team on your application.
After using CodeCare for 6 months, can you help transition
to an internal team?
Yes of course. We've helped many companies transition from using us
as an agency to an internal team. We also allow the option of hiring
your CodeCare developer for a placement fee if it would work out for
both of you! So you could effectively try before you buy :)
We had our app built by a certain other company, will you
still offer this service?
Couldn't I hire reinteractive for a month, get you to fix everything
and then get a refund?
Well, yeah, you could. It wouldn't be very nice, but we do let you
cancel any time if you are not happy. It's up to you, but we only
offer the refund once.
Do you take equity or other financial interest for a discount?
Is there a discount for non-profits or charities?
Yes there is, contact us
Can you invoice me and we'll pay by bank transfer or cheque?
Yes, but you need to pay for at least 6 months in advance and the
service will only start once the payment has cleared.
Will reinteractive sign a special negotiated contract for this
No. This is a monthly subscription product and we provide a very
specific set of circumstances.
Our Master Services Agreement
is the one we use for the Ruby on Rails CodeCare product, and we
believe it should cover pretty much any issue you have
(if not, please feel free to contact us to discuss the points that
you are concerned about).
