All Wolven services are provided only
in conjunction with a Wolven
Wolvens primary service is creating and maintaining custom software for our customers.
of a custom software solution is usually done on a flat price basis.
Because each solution is unique, the price varies for each customer. We will talk more
about determining the flat price below.
In addition to developing a new software system, we occaisionally handle the purchase, setup
and installation of the computer network hardware, operating system and standard office
software, if the customer wants us to. In some cases, we have also provided sytem
administration services. Obviously, that requires the customer to be located relatively
close to Wolvens office. Depending on the existing software, Wolven may also provide data
conversion services to move the data from the existing system to Wolvens software. All of
these services are provided on a per hour basis.
When Wolven was first established, we developed software for the IBM S\36 and AS\400.
From there we moved to ASNA's Visual RPG running on Windows networks. In 2007 we moved to
Microsofts VB.net and SQL Server. Consequently, Wolven can provide migration services
for companies looking to move from an IBM system to a Windows based network. Wolven can also
provide Windows based software that uses an IBM system as the database server.
Naturally, one of the first things potential customers want to know is, "How much is it going
to cost?". Arriving at the answer usually goes something like this. The first step
is a conversation to get a general idea of what the customer is looking for and what, if
any, software and hardware they are currently using. If Wolven looks like a realistic
option, we advance to step two. Wolven will visit the customers site and get a much more
detailed outline of the system modules, programs and other capabilities the customer requires.
With that information Wolven can provide a flat price for the development of the software and an
estimate of the number of hours that will be required for installation, setup, training and,
optionally, data conversion.
From 25+ years of experience, we know that we can provide a custom based software package at a price
that is cost competitive with comparable off the shelf packages.
