So, will your business eat, or be eaten by AI?

With AI having taken off like a rocket ship, it's no surprise that all of us are worried about whether this thing is gonna take our damn jobs or not.

The bad news, is that, well yes, it is going to change things. The good news is, it's likely going to be so in a very, very good way.

You see, having worked in the custom software and automation space for a decade, through catastrophic failures, and through incredible successes, placing entrepreneurs in a place to raise capital, help teachers get greater engagement from their students, and getting accounting staff off of data entry tasks - I've noticed ONE consistent thing amongst them all.

Effectively used, automations releases people to work more creatively. To find larger patterns, to identify greater bottlenecks, and ultimately to be of even GREATER value to their organizations.

Yeah, there's always a little friction, as those people are given free time, and are not quite sure what to do with it.

But inevitably, every time, work is found - and it's not an accident. People who get to choose the work they tackle - are going to frickin' love it! It's basic psychology - the kind that Ikea uses to make you love their furniture (I built it - so I love it).

So it's extremely lucky that we have not only the experience of dozens of projects, organizations spanning every application from shrimp processing to home insurance, and user counts spanning from just 1 to 1,000,000s, but also extensive experience building LLM applications since day 1 of OpenAI's ChatGPT releasing their APIs for developers to work with.

And even since then, while the rules of successful custom software projects still apply - there's TONS of nuance that goes into both using Generative AI, and also creating applications with it.

So let us, as an expert, handle these types of applications for you.

It is only logical, and intelligent, to avoid the burning wreckage of $10,000s wasted, headaches of not understanding what to do, how to do it, where to go, and all that time, never to be found again, by working with someone like us to get what you need. The result.

A functional, safe, software application, that does what it needs to in order to accrue value for you, your stakeholders, and most importantly, your users.

And a process where we can take you by the hand, and make it super silky smooth to get to the end result. No banging your head against the wall. No sleepless nights wondering what's going to happen. No irritating mornings feeling like you need to take control. Just a peaceful flow.

Here's the kinds of thing that you can expect from working with us:

Fixed pricing!

How many times have you shouldered the risk of hourly contractors, quoting you one price, and then chronically adding unexpected things to the final price, even in some cases not even delivering anything? What was the value add to you? NOTHING. Just wasted time, money, and the feeling of being betrayed. At Gadget, we charge one fixed, total price, and we don't stop until we reach the agreed upon endpoint - which is always to get you to the next value capturing milestone of your project.

Regular checkins

Let's avoid all the nonsense of over-planning - most roadmaps are at best a guess, and at worst wrong. Project specifications change as you get feedback from the users of your system (even if YOU are a user). Our team keeps in touch with you at regular intervals to make sure we are aligned with your needs, even as they are changing.

Decades of experience

Experience tested, solid advice and project leadership from a small team that has nearly 20 years of combined experience. We know where projects snag, where momentum is lost, and all the potential points of failure that can happen. Running into new territory? Stuck and not sure where to go? Instead of losing life and morale by watching your project go up in flames before it's even had a chance, let our experience and guidance do the work, and we'll make the process from confusion to victory so easy that project success will seem like it "just happened".

FREE consultation

Have an idea that seems a bit crazy, but you know will work? Take advantage of our absolutely FREE consultation and specification session - where we will either poke all the necessary holes in your plan, and leave you feeling clear of mind that the project doesn't make sense, OR we will refine your plan to make it robust and crystal clear as to how to go from just a rough idea to an executable list of items. Easily $1247 of value, done with you service, no strings attached. It's like you're' stealing, legally!

Total control

Total, full control over all assets and items created by our company. We don't own any of the intellectual property after we are done - and have no interest in it, so you can sell it and make a quick ROI on your investment, build it without fear of creating competitors by outsourcing, and feel good that you have full flexibility to hire in-house or otherwise after your project is complete (you won't want to, but we thought we'd mention it).

LLM (Chatbot) AI experts

Experience with cutting edge LLM (Chatbot) AI technology and more. We've been working with LLMs since public developer API access has been available for OpenAIs ChatGPT. Take advantage of this before the cats out of the bag and everyone and their mother realize the revenue exploding capabilities of the technology!

ZERO privacy or legal concerns with the AIs that we work with

We can use micro-LLMs thar are self-hosted, so you are full control of the data of your customers. As a result the model will not produce content that counts as plagiarism, and you can rest in peace knowing that you will not have privacy leaks, or heart attack inducing legal notices like copyright infringment lawsuits randomly showing up at your door.

Without any reduction in quality of the output from the LLM thanks to advanced RAG integration which has been proven to be the key factor in LLM performance, NOT model size.

Limited capacity

We aspire to excellence and meeting your needs.

As a result, we only take on 3 clients at a time. If you want to be part of that exclusive triad, reach out ASAP, as recently we've been capped more often.

RUTHLESS HEATSEEKING MISSILE VALUE DRIVEN APPROACH

Most custom software companies bloat your projects with unnecessary time-consuming processes, or nonsense features ("architecture" anyone?) to fill billable hours and keep their personal quotas full.

We get bored easily - so in order to have fun, get value to you fast, we've stripped down everything to the bare essentials. The benefit? Your time and money get stretched out to their limits, simply by us having learned to say NO to anything that doesn't get you to your first customers quickly.

For certain customers this can be annoying, but for the ones that really want to have their project succeed, this is a crucial piece that distinguishes Gadget from the average, soulless, software factory - and not only makes things more fun for Gadget, but it also takes a process has a lot of stressful, potential gut-wrenching uncertainty into a more easeful, zippy, interesting, fun, and simple way of working that nets RESULTS for you, the customer.

"OFF TO THE RACES" SYSTEM TO MAKE YOUR PROJECT REAL AND SUCCESSFUL

Every project fails because of lack of continuous directional momentum. There are two things that fuel that in a software project - users, or money. We won't even start building for you until we have either an investor demo milestone, which is one source of initial money, or for user acquisition and acquiring feedback in place, which is really just another proxy for cash coming in.

Why? Because otherwise the business envisioned is a complete fantasy. If those things aren't in place at the very beginning of the project, it doesn't matter how awesome a product we make, there will be no ROI. We love to build things because it's fun, impactful, and potentially life changing, but if the math doesn't make sense, there's sadly not much that can happen from there.

If this is enough to scare you off, good. We've seen enough failures to know what's pivotal for software projects to be successful, and if someone isn't willing to do either one of those two basic things, well, to say we have no faith in that project would be a nice way of putting it.

With almost two decades of experience, dozens of software projects, failures, successes, and everything in-between - including experience at working in Software at companies of several sizes (from just 5 people, to 1000, to 30,000), and multiple successful LLM/AI projects under our belt at Gadget (just check out our testimonials page), let us take you by the hand and help you run, not walk past the burning wreckage of failures of peers that didn't get expert help, and that are carefully hidden from public eye.
