Projects are priced at 3 different levels:

Yes. We have in the past and also are open for further discussions.

This is tricky, as some will tell you three months and some one year. However we have seen many fail past the deadline. Reasons are: latest functionality in upgrade not completed, customised pricers etc not upgradeable, super-ceding functionality in latest version not understood.

However for a vanilla based upgrade, 3-6 months is the norm, where an upgrade is after multiple versions, we would allow 1 year to ensure all new functionalities are compatible, tested and understood.

  1. 1. OPL (Official PL)
  2. 2. Schedule Tasks
  3. 3. Front Office Workstation
