Employment
ISF
Chairman
1988 - Present
I founded ISF to provide off-shore programming services to customers way back in 1988. Times have changed though. Telecommunication industry has improved tremendously. The Internet has changed the way business is done. We have moved from Cobol and Fortran to Java and PHP and then on to C# and AJAX. Sailing through this era of immense technological advancements has earned us wide-ranged thorough programming expertises along with seasoned project management skills.

Payment Terms
To reduce the risk both ways, we break up the payment into 4 equal parts:

25% mobilization
25% on demonstration of prototype
25% on first working version and
25% on final working version.

If the project value is $2,000 or less, we request payment in two parts:

50% mobilization
50% on final working version.

The entire amount must be escrowed with Elance and released accordingly if the escrow option is selected.

We have seen this work out very well for both parties. With long-term customers, payment terms are more flexible.

Moneyback Guarantee: If the prototype (or second milestone, if no prototype is required) is not according to your specification, you may formally cancel the project at that time and we will refund half of the mobilization fee.

Contractual Commitment: In the absence of a formal contract document, the original RFP (project description plus attachments), qualified by ISF's bid and the Elance PMB, and further qualified by the Business Terms section on Elance shall constitute a contract. For projects awarded on Elance, ISF does not have a policy of negotiating terms outside of Elance. All deliverables shall be explicitly negotiated including but not limited to executable code, source code, technical documentation, help and user guides, consultancy, deployment/installation on customer's system, beta/field testing, warranty, etc. Services/deliverables shall not be implied. Delays in intermediary milestones shall assumed to have been waived by the customer and extension in the final milestone shall be considered given if customer approves a delayed milestone. Any analysis, advice or suggestions offered by ISF during bidding (before contract award) remain the intellectual property of ISF and the customer may not use such analysis advice or suggestions in any way without ISF's formal approval.

Communication: During the life of a project, e-mails and/or instant messenger and/or telephone may be used to obtain clarification by either party. However, not all ISF staff is authorized to negotiate/revise contractual commitment, therefore communication outside of Elance shall not be considered as a promise by ISF. Only communication via the Elance PMB may affect contractual commitments. No response to a message on the PMB for more than 48 hours shall be considered acceptance by the other party.

Dispute Resolution: Formal project management methodologies at ISF help avoid disputes, but if such circumstances do arise, we shall both submit to mediation by Elance or another mutually identified independent organization. Reference to commitments/documents shall be restricted to those exchanged via Elance.

Nondisclosure, noncompete and nonsolicitation: Both ISF and customer shall adhere to expectations prevalent in the customer's country regarding nondisclosure of proprietary information, noncompetition directly with the other's business and nonsolicitation of employees, sub-contractors or customers.
