Software Development Made Easy

Oak River Software
Software Services

Updated! At ORS we provide an easy way for you to produce your software. We plan, design, develop, test, install, maintain, and market the software and graphics for your web sites, and internal company software systems.

We have created hundreds of programs, and designed dozens of systems for business and non-profit companies.

If your goal is to establish an online presence for yourself with a simple home page, or for your company with a more elaborate business site, or if you wish custom software services for non web purposes, you will receive the same personal attention and professional service at reasonable rates.

Project management research shows that only about 16% of software development projects succeed - the rest are over cost or schedule, or don't deliver what they were intended to, or are canceled. And the biggest single reason for failure is not understanding what users really want.

Oak River Software has been created to help clients, including commercial, non-profit and individuals, invest in technology that meets their needs - not their software designers' needs, or their consultants' needs. Also, Oak River Software is dedicated to making organizations more effective through the appropriate use of technology, focusing on impact and simplicity rather than over-elaborate code or animated extravaganzas.

Updated! Creating Your Software
We use proven software development methods, for web development, for business and enterprise software, and systems development of all types. Whether it's custom software created from your specifications or with our analysts who create the design, you will be involved with the development cycle in the appropriate level agreed upon before the job is started.

There will be no surprises with our tried and true method of software development, the ORS System Development Phases. If you want to be intimately involved with the detail of the design and development, if you just want periodic updates for your approval, or if you want to be somewhere in the middle of this range, we have the experienced personnel who will meet your needs.

Please see our Customer Info and FAQ Page for a more complete review of commonly asked questions about software development at ORS.

Our Referral Program
We've started a referral program to benefit you. It works like this: For any contact that results in a paid job and explicitly agreed upon with you before the job starts, we will pay you a five (5%) percent referral fee. The referral fee will be calculated upon the first paid invoice for any new client other than work for you or the company for which you work.


Updated! The ORS Work Contract
We use a simple work contract, easy to understand, ensuring for both you, the client, and ourselves that we agree to clearly define our goals, the job, and the payment for this work.

Our fees are variable depending on the task and specific job at hand. We can quote by the job or by an hourly rate. Please contact us for our current rates. We are competitive, and offer very reasonable rates.

If you agree to proceed with our company we would talk jointly to develop a plan which will satisfy your job requirements, including others which may be defined during our plan development meetings.

Once the plan is approved in both tasks and time estimation, you would send us an advance payment of forty percent (40%) before work starts. We will work from the agreed and approved overall plan without modifications. During the development phase your close cooperation and approval for minor details will be needed and expected. Upon and before live implementation, another fifty percent (50%) would be due and payable. After one month usage of the new software, graphics/art, and/or other services or products, the last ten percent (10%) will be due and payable. After implementation of the original job, any modifications not specified in the original job specification could be made for an additional fee at the agreed upon hourly rate.

The above percentage payments are variable and can be changed without notice. Please contact us for our current rates and policies.
