Indian Web Developers & Website Designer India
Selecting the best web designers and web
developers is one of the most daunting tasks when
outsourcing your web site to India. There are literally thousands of options
from free-lance designers, to large national web
and IT consultancies. Development processes range from a
few hours putting together sites of amateur quality to
projects by an organization with a proven and refined
process for crafting a world-class web presence. Costs
range from virtually free to millions of dollars - and
every web developer is marketing their offering as a
complete "results driven" solution. So how can
you determine who should create your next online brand
or application? This checklist will help you cut through
the marketing smoke and mirrors that some website
designers from India used
to over charge and hide deficiencies. It will arm you
with the questions that will separate the real result
getters from the rest. In the end it will provide a true
apples-to-apples comparison so you can make the right
choice the first time.
How Long have you been in Web Design business ?
6 years with a project execution rate of 600 + web applications @year even
at the time of the dot com scare, clients in 29 countries. Offshore
Development centers at Kolkata, Bangalore and NewFoundland. Exponential growth for the past
3 years. (Our
revenues doubled in 2004/5). We attribute our resiliency
to our efficient process-driven operation and an unique
outsourcing model that keeps overheads low, yet delivers SEI CMM certified
quality deliverables. Our
extraordinary growth comes from a balance of existing
loyal customers that want to build on their success and
new clients who are committed to "doing things
right." Being a subsidiary of the 40 yr old
Dassnagar group, investment in manpower and hardware have never been a
problem for us since inception. Our targeted markets are North America
How large is your Web Design company?
Only 31 men in Bangalore ODC. 25 out of them are Graduate ENGINEERS and most of them have
Masters in COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING or MBA. Paid much more
than other Indian Web Development or Web design company
. We have
two Visualizers who have an Art School Background and overseas working
experience something rarely found among Indian
. Aesthetic & appealing
creations come from our Kolkata Web Design studio. Optimized graphic design and
Flash animations by Action scripting is done by our Flash programmers unlike other Web Design firms
who employ local institute trained flash designers lacking Flash Programming skills. "Quality comes from education" is what we believe and when
experience combines education, the impact is lethal. We recruit only engineers
or MCA's and train them up in our Bangalore training center. Very few
Indian Website Designers or Web Developers can maintain an infrastructure
that we possess. Investment comes from our financers "DASSNAGAR", a
renowned business group all over Asia. Each and every steel plant in India
and Asia have at least one turnkey installation done by them. They are
India's largest exporter of Coil Processing machinery.
Are you national or international ?
We tend to be 100% export oriented. In India we have limited customers like
Premiers, Tata, Jindal, Modicare, Tirumala and a few more. Internationally we have
been working for leading brands like Adidas, Nike, Honda, Mercedes,
Code Plus, DNA Solutions, Bosch, Bank of Nigeria and many more....Our SEO
takes part in promoting American Health Insurance sites, a sector
regarded as the toughest by the SEO industry. We have a Canadian division and
branch offices in 6 countries in the world. Have a look at our top 20 web
design and development clients
Where do I find your Web Design Portfolio and Client Testimonials ?
Well - we are not a freelancing web designer who depend on portfolio and
testimonials to get orders. An SEI CMM Level 3 firm
do not require an
introduction. Our quality certification and customer
base speaks on
However to gain your confidence we have a list of our hi-profile
international clients who have given us the permission to publish their names
in our website. Visit Clients page. We have
over 10,000 international clients. Most of them have NDA contracts with us so we do
not divulge their identity, even to our employees, to protect their
integrity. We have designed, developed and now maintaining some of the most
sensitive offshore investment sites hosted at the tax heavens. The owners do
not want to get identified to stay away from anti-outsourcing protests.
What are the technologies that you work on ?
Answer is ALL. ASP / JSP / PHP / .NET / J2EE / MS SQL / Oracle /
mySQL / Access
We are a Microsoft Gold. So ASP, ASP.NET and C# comes to us
Open source and Java are our bread and butter (we are into wireless asset management systems and hand held programming
where J2ME and J2EE are extensively used). We maintain separate teams in all
three platforms and at the same time most of us are equally skilled in all
three platforms. However we prefer JAVA (JSP/Servelets) as they are platform
independent. But very few customers go for JSP as development and maintenance
cost is much more expensive than ASP, ASP.NET or PHP. Generally we suggest ASP.Net/MS SQL
as they are proven and most importantly have a company like Microsoft
supporting them. PHP/mySQL is suggested for those who are looking for more
cost effectiveness and their applications requires high volume Web server and
data server space. Version control was and is always a problem in PHP and
mySQL is not equivalent to MS SQL 2008 which comes with advanced automated
features. Another disadvantage is that PHP is not owned by anybody so support
in the form of a Software Vendor knowing the ins and outs is not available.
The hype of PHP is due to its cost effectiveness. With Free Source Codes in abundance on the world wide web, it is much cheaper to
build an open source solution. So freelancers tend to offer services such as "Customization of Open Source Resources" which in other words means
downloading one such free source code and then making small adjustments and cover it with a graphic design. But any intelligent
investor would understand that this is nothing but a way to make money using a free resource.
PHP is famous among India freelancing designer firms only because they get the
source code free.
PHP also has its merits but most of the time it is implemented to offer CHEAP.
Ideally applications requiring high volume hard disk & database space should select PHP. This is because not only PHP is free but
its Operating system Linux is also free and the database software mySQL is also free. So WEB HOSTING cost of PHP websites are
lesser than ASP sites. The development cost is about 20% less too.

We offer Web design & Development solutions for SME's. We have executed
projects over a wide price range 500 USD for a static website and can go up to
5,73,000 USD for Online Banking Projects

We are not a cheap Web design & Web development Company, rather we are
Do you outsource Web Design & Web development services ?
Yes we do, but in a different fashion. Graphic creation is the easiest thing
on Earth. Any 10th standard student if taught Adobe Photoshop can do that. So
why we waste our time to do them. With abundance skilled Web Designers and
freelancing outfits in this country, we get the low end graphic creation done
by them. WE DO NOT OUTSOURCE WEB DESIGN TO ANY INDEPENDENT FIRM but WHAT WE
DO IS HIRE THEIR MANPOWER who come and work at our ODC in Kolkata or
Bangalore under the guidance of our PM's. End of the day, the graphic
files generated are sent to one of our Multimedia experts and then he starts
optimizing them. Websites made by us are Search Engine
friendly. Optimized Graphic Design and Action scripted Flash
programming keeps file size to a minimum. Action scripting is a
technology in itself and Flash animations made by Action scripting are light
weight and appealing. We have optimized Flash files of 350 Kb to 25 Kb vide
Action scripts and optimized graphics.
We also hire local manpower for scripting. A successful Software
should have an architecture on which it is built. 80% of Indian Web Design
companies don't even know how to handle a Case Tool like Rational Rose or Designer
2000 or Clear Case. So how can one expect them to build Database driven
applications. Without case Diagrams and Normalization, relational concept can
never be properly established in a database. The only way you can establish Data
Concurrency is by establishing relationship between all tables in which
case data entry in one table will influence data entry to another table which
is our objective. As a Database Designer one needs to ensure that same pairs
of data are entering into multiple tables at the same time. To know more
about Advanced Database Design techniques, email us at .
Within our business model, we can offer you extremely competitive pricing and the quality is maintained
even though manpower is being outsourced.

ISO certification, a hall mark of quality. Website Design India
Interra (ISO 9001), SEO-India
, TgSoft, Cybertica,
Bright Sols are permanently
associated with us. We are choosy about manpower outsourcing and that is why we
select from these companies who themselves have application installations to
their credit. We also have small time web designers working for us on low end
graphic designing on hourly rates. Some of these firms can be found in the search engines.
We do not outsource projects but we hire man power and make them work at our
ODC's under our Project Manager's guidance. This enables us to maintain our
quality intact at a lower overhead than using permanent employees on our pay
