What hardware design services does Regami offer?


Regami has the expertise to support customers with camera design and integration, wireless design services, power design services, high speed digital design implementation, mixed signal design implementation and industrial design.




Why do I have to develop a custom camera when I can find off the shelf cameras?


Yes. There are many off the shelf cameras available in USB, Ethernet, MIPI etc. These cameras can quickly get you to prototyping and proof of concept stages. However, when we are looking at from production design perspective, most of the off the shelf cameras do not fit due to various reasons such as form factor, interface supported, connector placements, sensor used, lens used, and so on.

In custom development, we consider all your needs from the full product perspective, design the camera right from the component selection to the placement as per your requirements and develop the camera that is tailored to your need. This also considers BOM optimization that can give you cost benefits as you go into production. There are cases where we also share the design files so that the camera can be manufactured more cost-effectively.





Software Development

I have an obsolete software system which currently doesn't meet all my business needs. Should I deal with modernization or it’s better to build it from scratch?


We will have to evaluate the project from technical as well as business perspective. The decision on whether to modernize an application or rewrite depends on the technical debt of an existing software. If technologies had been implemented are completely outdated and it doesn’t make any sense to deal with modernization, it’s better to decide in favour of a rewriting option right away.




How to protect your software idea from being stolen?


We studied the question about “idea security” closely, so we can distinguish several ways that can help to make sure your business idea won’t be stolen or copied and give you confidence in the future: 1. prepare the NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement); 2. select protective measures and make your ownership public; 3. check reliability of your partners; 4. follow up all your arrangements, questions, and proposals about your idea over e-mail or messenger




Should I hire a software developer or a software company?


At some point, almost any business faces the need to develop a custom business app to guarantee constant growth. If a company has sufficient funds and a team of experienced IT experts, it can afford in-house software development. Such software is usually produced by a company to use it within the organization. But, in most cases, business relies on a custom software development company due to various reasons. Pros of Hiring a Freelancer 1. Low Development Cost
2. Availability
3. High Flexibility
4. Good for Small Projects Pros of Hiring a Software Development Company 1. Reliability
2. High Quality of the Final Product
3. Scale your team with ease
4. End-to-end Development Process
5. Development Companies Are Intended to Build Long-term Relationships with Clients
6. Diverse Experience




What are the advantages and disadvantages of custom software?


Custom software is designed and developed according to the requirements of a particular customer. Such apps are often not suitable for a broad range of users since they implement specific functionality. Advantages: set of features that you need potential for business improvements reliable support services advanced security measures software scalability Disadvantages: high development cost time losses on requirements gathering risk of hiring the wrong software vendor




Should the customer own the source code for the application?


When you hire a software development company, it is crucial to discuss on the deliverables and pricing policy of the project. Pricing policy may differ from one company to another. Sometimes the source code is included in the price. But some companies asks the client to pay a premium for getting rights to the code. Since ownership of the software source code provides the ability to copy, sell, and modify it, you should not underestimate the issue of licensing.




Can the software be upgraded in the future as new technology becomes available?


Regami has got a diverse technology stack which is used for software development in various сombinations for each specific project. The answer to the question if the software can be upgraded as new technology appears will lie in the area of a concrete technology future development. A product architecture building is a scrupulous process of finding the optimal solution to meet current and future needs. Choosing a technology stack for each specific application, we rely on the application functionality requirements, which the customer puts forward right now, on his limitations. In doing so, we also take into account the customer’s plans for product evolution, trends of the industry, as well as global technology trends.




What technologies, frameworks and languages you will use to write my software or app?


Regami is an outsourcing software development company that renders top-notch and cost-effective services in business analysis, UI/UX, web app development, and quality assurance. We can ensure that the whole process meets the designated code quality and standards.Please refer to our technology stack page.




How to estimate cost of fixed price projects?


The estimation process is following. To find out all requirements a business analyst discusses a project scope with stakeholders and then invites a technical specialist. Engaging a technical specialist at the decomposition stage leads to better and more accurate results. The project is typically decomposed into smaller components called activities that represent the work to complete.The activity list includes activity identifiers and the detailed description of work scope. These specified activities provide a basis for project performance at all stages: estimating, scheduling, executing and controlling.When all the activities are defined, the business analyst and technical specialist sequence the activities using logical relationships and decide on a development path.The determined and sequenced activities are estimated by the technical specialist and business analyst in work periods, usually days or hours. During the project execution, the estimate allows measuring project progress against the time baseline and making forecasts. When the estimate is ready we calculate the project cost




How do you guarantee product quality?


At Regami, we pay much attention to product quality. Integration simplicity, performance, speed of work, clean code, system stability, compliance with the requirements, absence of bugs are a standard. But we also note down the quality criteria from the the customer as well and pay special attention to that, right from the start. To guarantee the end product quality, we start testing from the very beginning of the software development life cycle and implement it on every stage. At the requirement gathering and analysis stage, the requirements specification is tested. At the design stage, prototype testing is a dive into the project to make sure it aligns with business requirements. Also, the prototype usability audit is implemented to guarantee the product will be user-friendly. At the development stage, unit testing checks all the small testable parts (units) of your software for proper operation. Integration testing checks units for proper integration. At the testing stage, before the release, user interface, cross-browser, cross-platform, and stress testing are fulfilled. System testing is carried out during each build and the release stage as alpha and beta testing of the product.define from the start the most important quality criteria for the customer. And we pay special attention to these criteria.




Why QA should be included into your software development cycle?


A successful launch of a software product is a more valuable goal than high speed of development or low costs. Therefore, software testing must be included in every step of software development process. In consideration of the complexity of modern software, it’s hard to imagine a situation when development process can do without any tests at all. Nevertheless, sometimes there are cases of unsuccessful application launches caused by the wrong approach to the testing process. The reason is simple. Software development companies might include QA into the overall process just as a separate phase of the project which is isolated from other stages of development.
