I used Elan Emerging Technologies to build my current site at www.vinoservant.com along with an IOS and Android app. I was extremely happy with them. You should contact Rich. He is in Chicago. See contact info below. More than happy to introduce you two via email. Elan has a team based in India. The way they work is the following:
- You send them a spec document that explains what you are looking for
- Elan will come back with questions, and then provide you an estimate
If you move forward, they will then want to write a comprehensive spec document. I paid them $500 for this document (70 pages). In this spec document they will provide you a final quote. If you are unhappy with the spec document or think they can’t perform, then you are only out $500, and the spec document is yours.
Elan uses Basecamp to deal with all issues and questions once the project is started. They charged me around $10,000 for the site and applications, and they recently added some features that cost me another $2,400. All in all I am very happy.
