Why is it more profitable to hire an outsourcing team than to hire one developer on staff?
IT outsourcing is a great solution for SMBs and startups, especially when it comes to software development services. First of all, it increases efficiency and reduces costs, as there is no need to set up an additional workplace, and an extensive talent pool and process automation accelerate product development. In addition, Seedium takes responsibility for the risks and gives you guarantees that allow companies to focus on their "core competencies". Last but not least, the rates are lower than hiring an in-house team in North America or Western Europe.
Why is it profitable to hire a software development company in Ukraine?
Ukraine is one of the world leaders in IT outsourcing, the IT sector in Ukraine is growing by 20-25% every year, and more than 100 “Fortune 500” companies have chosen to hire programmers here. There are many reasons for this: professional staff, low taxes, convenient legislation for the export of IT services, knowledge of English by specialists, as well as the software skills of Ukrainian developers necessary to create world class products.

What is the basic budget requirement?
We don't have a specific minimum budget but based on our experience, good quality web or mobile application development takes from 1,000 working hours with a budget starting from $25,000. The landing pages quote usually starts from $7,500 and takes a few months of work, which include design, CMS integration, and SPA front-end development. In most cases, we have tools and pre-ready solutions to minimise the time and cost of quotes for our clients.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients?
Our team follows different payment structures, and depending on project specifics, we select the more suitable model for each project. We are working on both hourly payments and fixed-price contracts. For the fixed price contract we are doing the discovery phase which usually takes 2-3 weeks to make a detailed project plan and assure the project will be done in the proper timing & budget. For companies looking for ongoing development and considering possible pivots, we offer hourly basis contracts and options of a dedicated team to assure the maximum value for projects.
What is the Dedicated Team model?
A dedicated team is a remote professional team working on your project. In this model, the Seedium team works exclusively on a specific project full-time with direct responsibility to the client. Seedium provides recruitment services, administrative support, and resources for project implementation.
What are the benefits of the Dedicated Team business model?
The dedicated team model has the same principles as you would hire in-house employees just without bureaucracy and administrative overhead which Seedium will take of.
How many developers can I hire for my Project?

Why does my project need the Discovery phase?
The discovery phase is an essential stage of development, where requirements are identified and business goals are analysed in order to make a proposal for technical implementation, fix project boundaries and estimate the cost of development. Moreover, in the discovery phase, we deliver project architecture, event storming, and API description, to make sure our quote is accurate as possible.
Can you handle ongoing maintenance?
Yes, of course, we can provide maintenance services for your project. Ongoing maintenance helps keep your project to be up-to-date, keeps high performance, and security, and reduce the risk of project downside.
