What are the benefits of using open source technologies?
Open source technologies save on development time and cost. Savings typically range from 40% to 50% compared to a product developed from scratch, depending on the complexity of customization.
Open source software comes with the rights to modify, offering complete flexibility, portability and the abilitiy to apply quick fixes and feature enhancements, which is generally not available with using proprietary software.
Using open source code, there are is no definitive source for obtaining required technical support. Questions ranging from simple to complicated, can be answered efficiently and quickly from a collaborative effort of a group of people, often working on voluntary basis.
How does ICUInternet add value to my web development projects?
We analyze your individual and business requirements thoroughly to understand your needs and perform extensive research to identify the best open source application that suits your business or individual needs.
We come up with a solution that best works for you by identifying the areas of your business that need customization, and prepare a plan to integrate multiple open source software development applications.
After customizing and integrating the applications, we subject the software to a thorough quality assurance and testing cycle to rectify any inherent software defects.
We can provide services to migrate your existing application and data.
We provide ongoing technical support, and can provide services to modify the functionality / add new features at any time.
How does all this work?
First we ask what you expect to accomplish and what features you would like to have on the site. We can make your website completely administrable. You won't need any advanced knowledge to add, delete, list or modify any information.
We find what you have put together in the form of pictures, logos and text and make suggestions and agree on a plan. We will then put together a cost breakdown based on our discussions and outline what the features of the site will be.
If you like what we have to offer than we will proceed to start the development of the site upon receipt of a deposit.
The final cost will never exceed the amount quoted in the estimate.
- Average Commercial Site Cost $2,500.00 US

We go the extra mile. We take pride in our work and our accomplishments and this is reflected in our reputation. Our clients will attest that we have gone beyond what they expected from a design group.
