  • What is the minimum project size that you will accept?

    Aveliscope Systems is a small company, so we do not scoff at small projects. Over the last 2 years our project portfolio has built up to cover a wide range of clients - from big, blue chip multinationals, to small one-man operations with a great idea. To us, the viability of the project and it's ability to excite us is what matters, not whether it is considered "small potatoes" by other developers. After all, happy clients sometimes sometimes grow and bring their friends.

  • Why Should I Hire/Contract Aveliscope Systems?

    There are numerous reasons, We'll give you seven good ones.

    We perfect our projects.

    If you need: a beautiful user-friendly mobile app? great logo for your business? a powerful software application? a site with all the bells and whistles? contact Aveliscope Systems. Database integration, video, audio, iOS and android integration, e-commerce — no problem.

    We emphasize simplicity.

    Some developers love to complicate your project. Not us. We choose the simplest tool that will effectively accomplish a task. Simple projects work, are easy to use and are less prone to problems.

    We are affordable.

    We have very low overhead. No fancy office, just a hard-working Internet professionals chained to my computer. (Just kidding. We're not really chained to our computers. We're chained to our desks.)

    We are friendly.

    Most of our clients have fun working with us. We make the development and design process easy and pleasant. We speak in plain English, not techno-babble. And we love what we do for a living.

    We only charge you when we do work for you.

    Seems somewhat obvious, right? Ask other developers -- some insist on maintenance contracts that require you to pay them even when you don't need any work on your site or application.
