Find answers and general information quickly about Cousant Connect’s services and procedures.
We have a very simple model. Cousant sits with each client to understand their project/product requirements. Once the requirements are understood, we go through our marketplace of verified developers and match you with the right developers and designers that have the capability to deliver on your project. There will always be an account manager assigned to you to oversee your project.
All of the talent in our marketplace have successfully gone through all our rigorous assessment stages that tests their technical competency, professionalism and communication skills. Our assessment process consists of numeracy tests, coding tests, requirements gathering exercise and design tests (for User interface designers), skills test and an interview.
Pricing very much depends on the type of project and the resources that will be deployed on your project. However, our promise is to get the most efficient pricing for your project by inviting all interested resources in our marketplace to bid for your project. We will only ever deploy the best priced resources to your project.
We run a time-based payment model for all our service models. This means clients only pay for the time the resources have been deployed to their team/project. We would usually charge clients on a monthly basis for each resource deployed to their team.project. If the project will overrun from our initial estimates, we would usually inform the Client well in advance.
From past experience, the time-based pricing model has proven to provide a better experience for our clients. In the past 4 years, we have successfully delivered over 30 fixed-priced projects and a key lesson we have learned is that our clients would prefer to have the flexibility to modify the scope of deliverables as more information becomes more available. This has historically been an issue with fixed term projects but with a time-based model, the Client has more flexibility on scope with the understanding that changes in scope may affect length of project.
Our clients range from 9-5pm Solopreneurs that need to build a prototype of a product to large organizations that need to augment their technical team with skilled developers and designers.
Cousant's Headquarters is at No. 2, Reverend Ogunbiyi Street, off Oba Akinjobi way, G.R.A, Ikeja Lagos.
