@rogerdickey Can you work on a project that is already started?
Michael Buckbee@mbuckbee · Founder+Developer
@rogerdickey Very interesting - but I'm amazed that you're able to quickly scope projects (5 minutes!) and then also have a 'guaranteed' price. How do you balance that?

@nicolasegosum Hi Nicolas - yes. Let us know where to pick up and we'll start from there.

@mbuckbee We have been training a quoting engine for ~10 months. Sometimes we guess price wrong but it averages out on volume!
Ryan Castillo@rmcastil · Challenge Accpeted LLC, Founder
@rogerdickey what parameters are you using for your quoting engine? I'd imagine for any AI to work it's got to be actual numbers. The main one I can think of at this point is project hours estimated versus time it actually took.

@rmcastil Yes, estimated vs actual is one of the biggest inputs. A few other tricks but that captures most of it.

@rogerdickey I was just quoted a huge amount just to review the code of an app...

@nicolasegosum How much Nicolas? That generally costs $1k for the following work: set up your dev env, test app, review all code, generate detailed report on bugs, optimizations, and potential architecture improvements

@rogerdickey How do you stop the "quote shopping jackpot" problem where the customer shops around until they get a wrong estimate that is too low for the scope. Also what about scope creep?
Roger Dickey
Maker
@rogerdickey · Founder of Gigster - We make apps!
@nucleics_inc Our sales engineers all use the same quoting engine so thankfully not an issue for us! We absorb minor scope creep, major scope creep is captured as a separate "mini project" in the same source base.

@rogerdickey this is amazing! Great job.
Justin Kwong@justinckwong · Increase Engagement Time = wiya.io
Great
PA@prestonattebery · Founder + Designer at DesignCue
@rogerdickey Love it! I'll definitely use you guys as a reference as I continue to build out DesignCue. It's essentially the same concept applied to design using a team of remote designers!
AJ@alanaut24 · Engitrepresigner
Awesome company and great group of people. Highly recommend.
Frank Fumarola@ffumarola · Product at Pinterest, Formerly Facebook
I submitted a project over 2 months ago and never got a response after repeated follow ups. There may be room to improve quality before driving more volume.
Steve RAFFNER@steveraffner · Senior Innovation Consultant
I sent a project to quote one year ago - follow-up was terrible. I hope v2 is different.
J@worldhistorical
@steveraffner Was gigster even around then? I'm pretty sure they launched this year.
Vlad Ciurca@vladciurca · Executive Producer, Techsylvania
@worldhistorical yes, the service is more than one year old
J@worldhistorical
@vladciurca It was a rhetorical question, I know when they launched. The company has been around longer than a year, but the service didn't launch until early 2015. See the original 'hunted' Gigster. :P
Steve RAFFNER@steveraffner · Senior Innovation Consultant
@worldhistorical I contacted them (Debo) on December 6th 2014 - had half a dozen emails with them - never got any clear answer/proposal to my brief yet.

Congratulations @rogerdickey this is awesome!
