“Red Corner saved us $30,000 in additional costs by spotting a purposefully overcharged item on the quote."

How It Works
Hire a custom development agency with confidence
Initial consultation and scope definition
We begin with a detailed consultation, so our FCTO can thoroughly understand your project needs and define the scope. This ensures a tailored approach to selecting the right dev agency.
Vetting and selection of development agencies
We employ a rigorous vetting process to evaluate potential agencies and work with you to structure your project. Red Corner helps you identify and request only what is absolutely needed from the development agency – ensuring a reduction in project cost.
Proposal analysis and agency finalization
Once agencies submit their proposals, our FCTOs analyze them for practicality, cost-effectiveness, and alignment with your goals. We scrutinize their capabilities, past work, and fit for your project requirements to select the best match.
Project management and quality oversight
Our involvement continues as we oversee the project's progress, ensuring adherence to timelines and quality standards. Regular updates and proactive management keep your project on track.
Final delivery, handover, and post-project support
As the project concludes, our FCTOs ensure a smooth handover of deliverables. We also provide post-project support to address any subsequent needs or adjustments.
How does Red Corner ensure the Dev Agency is a good fit for my project?
Your Red Corner FCTO oversees your project from start to finish, adeptly mitigating risks associated with custom development agencies. They structure the project and collaborate with you to define its scope – ensuring consensus before submitting an RFI (Request For Information) to carefully selected dev agencies.
Throughout the project, your FCTO manages all communications, technical challenges, and potential change requests. With Red Corner, you can be at ease knowing we’ve got your back every step of the way.
Does the FCTO help with both the selection and management of the development agency?
For selection, your FCTO tailors criteria to your specific needs and industry, conducts thorough research, and collaborates with you to submit RFIs – we will choose the right dev agency!
Regarding management, the FCTO oversees all project aspects and communication with the agency until completion and launch. Even after your product goes live, our FCTO can continue providing support for as long as necessary
What level of involvement can I expect from the FCTO in project management?
Expect a highly intensive level of involvement from your FCTO in project management. They engage in every aspect, including:
overseeing quotes and invoices
participating in demos
addressing technical queries
providing regular status updates
Their comprehensive involvement ensures a smooth and successful project execution.
How does the FCTO contribute to cost savings?
Your Red Corner FCTO reduces dev agency costs by identifying creative, low-cost solutions that meet your requirements – rather than relying on more expensive options proposed by the dev agency.
Since development agencies are incentivized to inflate costs (and never tell you “no”), your FCTO acts as a safeguard against unnecessary expenses. Our goal is to get the most value for your investment.
How does the FCTO handle conflict resolution or issues with a development agency?
As seasoned technologists, our FCTOs are adept at managing conflicts or issues that arise with a development agency. They skillfully navigate technical disputes on your behalf, involving you only when necessary.
All communications with the dev agency are meticulously logged, informing you of any developments. Should there be a need for any project changes, your FCTO will consult with you first – ensuring alignment with your vision and goals.
Is there an engagement period for an FCTO in a development project?
Yes. Your FCTO remains actively engaged throughout the entire duration of the development project – from its inception right through to delivery, and often even beyond that.
Continuous involvement is essential because software development is complex, and new challenges can arise daily. The FCTO's consistent presence ensures that these challenges are promptly addressed and the project stays on track.
