why use B13 Technology?

  • Get your project done on time with no HR hassles.
    Our experienced team of Java consultants will give you a helping hand when things get busy, so you won’t have to hire developers you’ll no longer need 6 months from now.

  • Get an expert consultant at a reduced rate.
    You’ll work with an expert consultant for a lot less than you’d pay for a similarly experienced contractor. You don’t pay so much because we outsource the low-level stuff to an offshore development team, passing the savings on to you.

  • You only pay when you’re happy.
    We’ll sit down and list your exact requirements before starting the project. You only pay for the requirements that are met, which lets us both stay flexible as your project changes over time.

  • Long-term partnership makes scaling a doddle.
    Don’t worry about hiring for those “one off” projects – we’ll provide the extra manpower, so you don’t have to shell out on office space and recruitment fees every time you need that “little extra”.

our approach

Scratch your biggest itch Get your most important feature in 2 weeks

One of our consultants will help you figure out what's most important.

They'll sit down with you to discuss your single most urgent requirement. That could be a feature, an upgrade to a current product, or an MVP.

Then, we'll help you meet that need in 2 weeks or less. Going forward, new features will be based on how you really use your product.

Not how you imagine yourself using it. You'll be shocked at how much progress we'll make in the first 2 week sprint (we're an agile shop). Our experience means we can get up to speed in record time, and can commission a large team in days if that's what you need to get the job done.


Set the scope Keep an eye on where your project's headed

We'll work together to lay out your project's scope..

We'll get this down on paper in the form of a living document. It's a list of things your product should do...

...When a feature gets implemented, one of the things on the list will turn from red to green. You'll know your product does that 'thing' now.

This lets you take a quick pulse of how your product's coming along.


Staying nimble It's okay if you change your mind

Our development set-up puts you first.

You'll be working with a team that's agile, efficient, and nimble.

We don't have the overheads of M&Ms (Meetings and Managers) like most companies do. We can change direction at a moment's notice.

Your requirements change as the project evolves. We stay light on our feet for that exact reason.


Easy to read, maintainable code Code your developers will love

Our developers write clear, concise code that's bug-free and a breeze to maintain.

On top of that, we hire top-of-industry developers (with clients like The Gates Foundation to their name) to review your code. It's their sole purpose to make sure it's easy to read, bug-free and maintainable.

Once your project's finished, your developers will have no trouble taking it under their wing.


Save money where it matters Pricing with you in mind

Our pricing is set-up to give you peace of mind.

You pay for each part of the project that gets completed. So you pay for what you get – nothing else. This helps us stay flexible as the project evolves.

You'll save money, too...

...Our in-house developers only handle the tricky parts of your project. The everyday stuff is done by our offshore partners. We pass the savings from this on to you.


Continuous Delivery No waiting around

We move fast, so your product will be updated 2+ times per day.

Unlike stodgier, bigger companies, we move quickly. In fact, your product will be updated several times per day.

This means you'll be able to play with new features – and see if they need tweaking – as soon as possible, giving you a head start for planning the next Sprint. (We're an Agile shop.)
