Q: When requesting a development, can you tell us the overall price ?
A: We understand the necessity to know in advance for the expenses of a development. However, since we are not selling a finished product, the price will depend on various factors related to the development itself. Therefore, it is difficult to give a clear answer in advance.
Q: How long is a development ?
A: In case we have already done such development, it would take few months. However, in our experience, most of the companies that contact us, do so for an original and new development. In case the development requires to do a feasibility study beforehand, the development might take few years. Please understand that such development is different than manufacturing an already made product using available schematics and hence can not be done in a short period of time.
