Posted: 2023-05-09

While every client is different, the questions asked when working with a software house often recur. Our Sales Team has compiled the most popular ones to create a mini-compendium of how we deliver IT services. Read the article or watch the videos we have prepared for you.

When can you start working on our IT project?

As Solwit now has more than 400 people, we can quickly put together a team of specialists to begin IT projects. Typically, the formalities related to the contract, ordering, transferring access, or establishing customer requirements or specifications that consume the most time. The sooner we complete all formalities, the sooner we can get started. It is usually our practice to open up new projects for new clients with consultants who have worked with us for a long time. This gives us confidence that entry and recognition will be seamless and at the highest level possible. If everything goes smoothly, we can begin within three days of signing the order.


What is the process of selecting people for a project?

It’s worth pointing out that the consultants who work with clients are our employees – behind every CV is a very particular person. We select specialists according to their competence and availability, but also according to the project requirements and the industry. We can present several candidates to our clients, and our programmers and testers are always available for consultation. We mainly hire seniors and mids, i.e., people with at least a few years’ experience. Having worked on different projects, they are able to enter new business domains with ease.


What happens if a team member falls ill or takes a leave of absence?

We back ourselves up when such situations arise. As part of our practice, we ensure that people are included in projects capable of replacing team members in case of extended absences or illnesses. It’s like having a shadow that seamlessly enters a project when needed. We always use honest and open communication to handle these types of situations and come up with the best solution possible.

Which clients does Solwit work with?

We have been trusted by over 100 clients – from startups with a polished vision, to non-technology companies needing assistance converting a need into a product, to organizations with in-house engineering teams that we support with our expertise.

We often work with companies in the industrial, automotive, medtech, or fintech sectors. We develop custom software for small, medium, and large businesses. Based on the knowledge and experience of our best consultants, we answer your questions and suggest ways to turn your idea into a viable application or system.


Do you have experience working with international organizations from different cultures and time zones?

We have completed more than 1,000 projects successfully. Adaptation to client company culture was required for many of them. Our engineers are fluent in English. We cooperate with many clients in a Nearshore Team Extension model. Our team works on the most popular and efficient project management systems universal across several regions.

What makes us stand out from the competition?

The #solwitteam primarily consists of mid and senior-level specialists. Working with us means that your project will be handled by experts who have implemented similar systems successfully in the past. We place a great deal of emphasis on security in everyday business, such as confidentiality, and in the broader sense, confirmed by ISO 23001 and ISO 27001 certificates.

We make a difference through our flexibility, both in our project approach and our billing approach. We can work together on a fixed-price, time-and-material, or hybrid model. We deliver projects holistically or jointly with your in-house team. We transfer complete copyrights and documentation, ensuring all know-how stays with your organization.

Our best selling point is, however, our customer feedback. Check out how they rated working with us on the Clutch portal.


How can I be sure that collaborating with you will succeed?

We work in a business-first model. Your project is our top priority. In order to make the project successful, we always encourage our clients to be close to the project. The project team will hold daily meetings and weekly reviews you can attend if you want to. As a result, we can be confident that the software being developed is up to par, giving you peace of mind that all is on track.
