We provide outsourced development and expertise to other agencies.
We develop and maintain mutually-beneficial partnerships with like-minded agencies in need of a reliable, technical expert for their client projects. Likewise, we look to them to provide exceptional design services to our clients when needed.
Benefits of Working with 10 Degrees
If you’re designing complex sites with more involved functionality then we are on hand to provide our software development expertise during specification and design.
Before, during and after a project we’ll keep you updated on scheduling, development and supporting your project. We are praised for our regular and honest communication by other agencies.
On Budget, On Time
We have 8 years experience of quoting for agency projects so we know when we commit to a project that it’ll be delivered within budget and on time, every time.
High Quality Code
We strive in every line of code to put accuracy (to artwork), performance and security at the forefront of every project. We use professional development tools and source code versioning to maintain code quality.
How We Work
We are an open, honest and transparent business. Our preferred way of working with agencies reflects that. But, we understand that in some situations that is not always going to be possible.
In our experience from working with many creative agencies over the years, the highest levels of client satisfaction comes from projects where we are involved as a joint partnership from the earliest requirements gathering stage.
When our relationship is visible to the clients up front, they understand that they are getting the best of both worlds, with cutting edge design combined with technical excellence.
It also minimises both scope creep and retrospective design changes due to requirements being technically specified. This lets everyone play to their respective strengths.
This is our preferred approach to all agency work.
Sometimes however you need to outsource development in a white-labeled way, and we understand that. Whilst we prefer partnerships, we can also work under an NDA for your client projects.
Ways We Can Work Together
Quoting and proposals
At first you may not need our input on your quotes and proposals but as the relationship develops we can offer invaluable insight into new technologies and functionality you can propose to your clients. We include the time spent on quoting and proposals within our quote for a project.
We project manage
We can project manage the whole project on behalf of both of us, you will be responsible for delivery of all design collateral – we’ll ensure you maintain a strong relationship with your client and keep our communication open and visible. With our technical lead on a project we can brief your designers on specific functionality to ensure a smooth design and build process.
You project manage
You manage the project with the client and we manage the development phase, from delivery of completed and signed off PSDs. We can help write a technical specification for the project to ensure all your client’s requirements are captured at the start of the project. We’ll deliver a skeleton site with content from your artwork for you to populate the rest of the site.
Development only under NDA
We can complete all development tasks, under your project management, from delivery of completed and signed off PSDs – under NDA.
Ongoing support and care
After we’ve helped deliver a site to its live domain we can offer ongoing care and support to you and your clients. This is in the form of regular software and plugin updates; telephone and email support; retained hours for development; and regular performance reviews.
Pricing will be determined on a per project basis, depending on our agreed way of working. Work completed in partnership will be at negotiated agency rates; work under NDA will be at our standard service rates.
The team at 10° have completed many successful projects for Onimpact – they are reliable, communicative throughout all stages of development and above all, the quality & performance of their websites means we are long term partners. Their developers work alongside our designers to provide useful feedback and they feel like part of our team. They also help out with proposals, attend pitches and support our long-standing clients.
