Velocity Software Systems Ltd., is a private British Columbia company formed in 1996 based in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Velocity was formed for the purpose of offering software and hardware development services to the high technology industry. Velocity operates with a roster of independent consultants that are retained on a project by project basis. Together with other internal efficiencies Velocity offers its clients high quality design services on a very cost-effective basis.

Velocity's objective is to continue its profitable operations and grow by providing its services in a manner that improves the profitability of its customers. The Velocity development team can provide reliable and secure applications designed to its customers mission critical specifications: delivered on time and at competitive prices. Velocity has the software development expertise to create the best applications, tailored specifically to our customers needs.

Velocity provides software and hardware development expertise on a project by project basis. The company maintains a roster of highly skilled software and hardware professionals whom it contracts to fulfill specific needs of a particular project. This structure provides Velocity with a very broad base of expertise. Under this paradigm, Velocity itself provides the project management infra-structure along with technical and administrative control over the project and the contractors.

The technical direction is provided by Velocity itself through Mr. Leslie Mulder. Mr. Mulder is the principal of Velocity. His resume is included for reference in Principal's Resume.

Contract Particulars

Contract Remuneration

Velocity works under the guidelines of fixed price contracts based on an initial understanding of the project and a formal agreement of the scope of the project after agreement on a functional specification. Velocity generally provides the client with an initial quotation for the work prior to the formalisation of the functional specification. It is understood that this quotation may vary once the functional specification has been agreed to. These variances could be the result of changes to the design, additions or deletions of functional requirements or changes in methodology as a result of the review of the functional requirements.

Non-Disclosure

Velocity can provide a short but comprehensive non-disclosure agreement to our clients. The agreement provides bi-lateral protection for both our clients and Velocity from the publication of private or privileged information.

For the full text of the agreement please see Non-Disclosure

General Contract

Velocity uses a standard contract to cover major projects. The agreement provides bi-lateral covenants to protect both parties.

For the full text of the contract please see Contract

Quality Assurance

Velocity is committed to the four defining points of quality control:

  • The desire to formulate clear documented understanding of our clients needs, wants and goals;
  • The desire to understand and define Velocity's core competency's;
  • Adherence to methods of reporting that demonstrate that Velocity has control of its core competencies as it applies to our clients needs, wants and goals; and
  • A strong desire to improve and expand our core competencies along with methods to bring those changes about.

In all cases when Velocity commits to a project, we work with our clients to formulate a clear functional specification of the work to be done. The functional specification document forms the basis for all further work. In preparing the functional specification, the dialogue will illuminate the details of the process. The functional specification provides clear parameters for the design requirements, a basis to formulate a testing program and clear line of accountability. Velocity believes strongly in measurable results and endeavours to provide clearly definable parameters for its client's goals and its products.

Velocity continuously evaluates its methodologies in light of its current performance and goals. Its evaluations enable it to pinpoint areas that require upgrading and improvement. We strive to bring to bear the best tools for the task. These assessments provide our clients with continually improving levels of service and quality.
