The consultation is part of the development process. We cannot properly develop an application for you if we do not have all the details of what the applciation is supposed to do. any application development will start at the white boarding stage. it shouldn't take us very long to get to the point of being able to determine the time involved, but it is not something I can tell you here in the forum, i just don't have enough information to be able to tell how long it will take, and the needed details really need to be hashed out with the person that will be doing the development, in other words Ray.
the process is to put in a request for a premiere support appointment, we will call to schedule the appointment with you. at that time we will get the details about the application and come up with an estimate on how long the application will take to complete and schedule that time block. normally, that initial conversation about scheduling and application details is not charged.
