Long T fsTo kick of our “Meet the Team” series, we decided to interview Long Tran, a member of our Estimation Team. We, at Amadeus Consulting, don’t have flat rates for the many projects we do. We rely on our Estimation Team to determine the cost of a project based on various factors, such as:

Business goals

  • Are you an entrepreneur, just starting out and need to get your foot in the door?
  • Are you with a corporation that needs to develop a whole new software?
  • Are you a Mom & Pop type of business that is hoping to raise your sales?

Technical requirements

  • Do you want to create a mobile app? A website? A database?

How do you envision your users interacting with your solution?

  • Keep it simple?
  • Lots of graphics?

Once our estimation team gathers all of this information, they talk to our team of developers to do a little research on how feasible your project really is, given any budget parameters you might have. Then through a magic formula, they are able to come up with how much your project will cost.

Well, now that I’ve explained what it is that Long does here at Amadeus, let’s get to know a little more about him…

Long grew up in Aurora, CO and attended CU Boulder where he studied Economics and Mathematics. He also spent two years studying abroad in Hong Kong. When not in the office, he likes to spend his time either at the gym or playing Ultimate Frisbee. Long started playing Ultimate in 2008 when he joined his former co-workers for games during their lunch breaks on Thursdays.

When he was growing up he wanted to be a police officer, which he attributes to watching a lot of the TV show COPS. He thought that being a cop was just a bunch chasing people around. Once he realized everything else that goes into being an officer of the law, he went a different route.

If he could learn to do anything, it would be play the piano.

His uncle once gave him hair gel as a Christmas gift and says it was the oddest gift he has ever received.

Stay tuned for our next “Meet the Team” profile in July 2014. If you have a project in mind and would like to get a free estimate, let us know!
