RS Development Group specializes in providing Technology Consulting and Concierge Mac Services for companies and individuals.

Company

Experienced Consultants and Analysts

RS Development Group is the current evolution of the consultancy / technology services firm founded by Robert E. Spivack, SPIV Technologies Group. Founded over 10 years ago, the firm provided in-depth technical assessment and market research for Silicon Valley startups and mid-market companies. During the Dot Com era, the firm evolved into a systems integrator and then a web services company providing web hosting, co-location, and virtual servers under the Voicegateway.com moniker.

Currently, RS Development Group provides technology consulting for emerging technologies in the fields of the Internet of Things (IoT), Home Automation, Mobile Applications Design, Development, and Marketing, and Software as a Service (SaaS) back-end solutions.

Operating Principles

Fixed-cost, Predictable Fee Structure

The philosophy of RS Development Group is to provide expert consulting and technology services eschewing the typical overpriced hourly fees of both big and small consulting firms. It is our strong belief that when neither the analyst nor the client has to "watch the clock" and track hourly activities, the quality of information provided and results achieved is much greater.

Technology Consulting Projects are arranged on a fixed-cost, fee for services basis. Preliminary client meets are free of charge and a total project cost is calculated and presented before any work is begun. Smaller projects are billed 50% in advance and 50% upon completion. Larger projects are billed in increments commensurate with project scope and progress.

Staff Augmentation, Not Competition

We act on your behalf as a virtual additional employee or member of your team. We do not work in competition with your own staff or people. We respectfully decline projects with hidden agendas to embarass or reveal the shortcomings of internal projects or people. Our goal is to always be welcomed by all levels of management and employees within our clients' organization.

Your Purchasing Agent, Not Salesperson

Sometimes Concierge Mac Support involves upgrading or installing new computer equipment or peripherals. Unlike traditional consultants, we do not sell products to pocket hefty markups, commissions, or kickbacks. We act as a ruthless purchasing agent on your behalf procuring necessary equipment at the lowest possible cost. We choose brands and products based on quality, capability, and appropriateness for the application. We "dogfood" everything - if we haven't used it ourselves, we won't recommend it.
