About Us

Images of the New ForestWe are a small company working out of the ancient and beautiful New Forest in Hampshire. Hence our name, Sylvaticus means ‘of’ or ‘from the forest’ in Latin. Working from our home office we keep our overheads low and can be very flexible. To you, this means we will always offer competitive rates and we can work at your offices or from our own.

We aim to provide our clients, small, medium or large, a professional service with a personal touch. We are committed to providing solutions that are developed to suit your needs and budget making the best possible use of available technologies and that comply with standards and best practice.

We believe strongly in using the ‘best tool for a task’ and keep ourselves up to date with the fluid market in which we work.

How We Charge For Our Work

Since every project differs so widely, we have found it works best for both sides to establish needs, budgets and provide estimates per project.

All design and development projects vary in style, content and complexity as well as the depth of our involvement. Rather than offering set ‘packages’ where you may well end up paying for functionality that you do not use, or fixed quotes that necessarily include some allowance for underestimation of time taken on our part, we have found it much more beneficial for both sides to work on hourly rates. We will always give the closest possible estimate of time against the specification provided and any variance in the actual time taken will always be discussed fully with you well before the event. We promise not to present you with a bill that you weren’t expecting!
Naturally, you may have a very clear specification and prefer to work on a fixed price, in which case we will happily come to an arrangement with you.

An agreed deposit is usually required prior to commencing the work, with the rest paid on delivery. If a project is estimated to take more than a month, we will arrange a set of stage payments with you. Consultancy work is always billed after the work is completed.
