Contract rates vary depending on the skill set and experience required, the length of the contract and the location of work, but all resources are provided typically at a far cheaper cost of outsourcing or agency rates. A typical contract rate for a Business Objects or Visual Studio based developer would be around just £250 per day.

All of our work, including supplied products and contractor/consultancy resources are fully covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Touchstone can also offer fixed price, fixed duration contracts. From a specification of requirements, Touchstone will provide an estimate for completion of the development and an estimated completion date. Touchstone will then guarantee the cost of the project and the delivery date, but will always try to come in under budget and before the project end date.

  • Visual Basic software development
  • Visual Studio .NET software development
  • Project Manager (Prince2)
