Dear Buyer,

Thank you for your interest in my services! I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of your opportunity to tap into a unique methodology for your project. Key benefits of this methodology are timeliness, quality of work, and effective collaboration between the buyer (you) and the coder (us).

Out of the 12 steps contained in the process based on this methodology, nearly half deal with effective communication. This ensures that the result is what you want. After all, that is what custom software development and outsourcing is all about: getting it the way you like it! Regular collaboration ensures that you as the buyer are aware of progress being made, and allows you to have input in each stage of the project.

The process provides quality of work because it ensures that proper analysis and planning takes place. Analysis and planning are key to a successful project. The process guidelines make this stage easy but very functional in practice.

Thirdly, it gives timelines in execution of work. Using this method, you will start to see results quickly. You will be assured that progress is being made, and, depending on the type of project, you may benefit from some limited functionality in a very short period of time.

So if you're looking for an energetic and honest custom software provider why not try out this methodology today? Invite us to bid on your project now!

Respectfully yours,

Lloyd Cotten

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about CrucialCode, but I'll tell you right now, it will only be praise. Thank you and Keep up the good work.

  Lloyd knew that I had to have this small project fixed by Monday and I accepted his by on Friday. He worked most of the day on Saturday to complete my work and was done with it that day. He even added another small function for me!!! Check back in a few days and you will see that I've asked him to do more work for me. If you need Database work done, use him. But I might be using him still :-)

THANKS a bunch!

  NOT just the best one

Technically - Professional
Business - Friendly

He gave us more then we asked for. We needed someone who can not just build up an application for us, we needed someone who will help us aim the application and match it for our special needs. All the way he was giving us major important points in development. Helping us and guiding us in a professional and friendly way.
I know it&'s hard to find the right one, but defiantly he is.

Thank you.

  This was my first time using Rent-a-coder, and I came here due to a task I had for a client which I simply could not accomplish on my own. I was in danger of not being able to fulfill my contract.

I could not have asked for a better experience with my developer. He was fantastic! He responded to all my requests quickly, fixed all the bugs that popped up, AND he was happy to adapt as new features we're needed for the control.

My life became a MUCH better place, and I can not recommend him enough.
