Frequently Asked Questions
Good question! With Aimform you get a Fractional CTO + an Engineer/Designer/Analyst (depending on your needs) from Day 1. You can't really compare a CTO to an engineer in terms of expertise and depth of knowledge. The better comparison is a Co-Founder CTO and a team which will cost you 20-50% of your company and 6-12 months of your time to find, build, motivate and manage. - Product Expertise: You get engineering, design, and product expertise at a fraction of the cost of hiring dedicated full-time employees or hiring an agency. - Clarity: We provide a well-tested structure to our collaboration. We also do workshops and have playbooks. With employees, that structure must be provided by you. With agencies, it's much more expensive. - Peace of Mind: With the monthly plan, you can pause and resume your subscription as often as you need to ensure you’re only paying your engineers and designers when you have work available for them. - Affordable & Flexible: An MVP with us can cost from $4k to $25k done within 1-12 months with multiple pauses so you can collect feedback. The annual cost of a full-time senior-level software engineer or a product designer now exceeds $100,000 plus benefits in the USA, and everywhere else it's $50k+, you may also find it's pretty hard to find an available one. You may not always have enough work to keep them busy at all times, so you’re stuck paying for time you aren’t able to utilize.
Since we work iteratively, you will receive new versions of your product every 1-3 days. The final delivery ideally depends on specifics, but here are some numbers to give you an idea: - Simple MVP Development: Within 1 month - Average MVP Development: Within 2 months - Complex MVP Development: Within 3 months - SaaS Web App Development: Within 6 months - Mobile App Development: Within 6 months - 1 Screen Design (Minimal): Within 3 days. - 1 Screen Design (Artistic): Within 6 days. - Single Feature Prototype: Within 1 week - Multi Feature Prototype: Within 2 weeks
A track is a dedicated service that we provide to you on top of your Fractional CTO Service. The available tracks are Analysis, Engineering, Architecture, Product Design, Graphic Design, Quality Assurance, Strategy, Management, Auditing.
You can switch between tracks anytime, we may switch it for you depending on your type of requests and priorities. For example, if you need a Prototype initially you will be on a Design Track. You might come back later with feedback and switch to a Development Track to build your MVP.
You can buy as many tracks as you need to get your product to market faster. More tracks more agility. Each track costs an additional $3,995/mo and comes with your Fractional CTO included.
Of course. Aimform does not cover the following software work: - Design work without being able to convey the customer journey. We can help record and structure the journey with our UX Workshop. - Frontend work without user stories and UI designs. We can help you with our UI/UX services. - Backend work without clear business requirements. We can help you clarify it through our Business Requirements Workshops. - Anything that cannot be implemented with Web Technologies (React and Node), such as Native Games, Native Desktop & Mobile Apps (We deliver Cross Platform with React Native). - Custom Machine Learning Models. We are happy to build integrations with any open AI Systems like ChatGPT but custom machine learning models are not the scope of this service. Our specialty is Single Page Apps, Web Apps, Cross Platform Mobile Apps, Cross Platform Desktop Apps, UI/UX Design, and highly scalable REST APIs and Backend Architectures.
Once subscribed, you’re able to add as many feature requests to your queue as you’d like, and they will be delivered one by one if you're on a single track plan, or in parallel if you are on a multi track plan.
We understand you may not have enough software work to fill up the entire month. Perhaps you only have one or two requests at the moment. That’s where pausing your subscription comes in handy. Billing cycles are based on a 30-day period. Let’s say you sign up and use the service for 20 days, and then decide to pause your subscription. This means that the billing cycle will be paused and you’ll have 10 days of service remaining to be used anytime in the future.
We code in Typescript. For backends we use Node.js. For frontends, we use React and Next.js. For mobile, we use the cross-platform React Native.
Our web apps run on any modern Web Browser. Mobile apps run on iOS and Android. Backends run in the cloud or on-premise on Ubuntu, RHEL, or any Unix-style OS.
Backend services are hosted on Vercel, AWS, Azure or GCP. We default to Vercel for frontend development and AWS EC2 for Node.js backends. You can freely adjust these.
Simply create a ticket, choose the request type, and submit it to the queue. You may get follow-up clarification questions before the work begins. We can also schedule a call or do a brainstorming session with you.
No worries! We’ll continue to revise the software until you’re 100% satisfied.
That’s fine, you can pause your subscription when finished and return when you have additional requests. There’s no need to let the remainder of your subscription go to waste, all unused days will be available for you to use in the future.
It's the path your target customer archetype takes to solve your target problem. Your solution needs to fit into the customer journey, and you need to know at least how users arrive at your solution, what they need to input, and what outcome they expect. You also need to understand the user journey, ie. what steps are needed to take within your solution to achieve the desired outcome. The customer journey informs the user journey which informs the user stories. We need to understand this to craft exceptional user experiences and interfaces that your users will love to use. If you don't know yet the journey of your customers you might want to go back to researching your target audience in more detail. If you do know the journey but don't know how to express it we might be able to help you.
We mean the objective, customer personas, the problem you are trying to solve, and the ideal solution to the problem you see. These should be informed by your own market and user research efforts.
