FAQ

About Aeturnum

What business problem is Aeturnum focused on?
Aeturnum is focused on helping early-stage software companies accelerate their time-to-market and significantly reduce their development costs.

Most entrepreneurs and early-stage companies engaged in application development spend precious time and capital developing common business functionality, services and logic. This slows time to market and stifles efforts to innovate and differentiate their software products. In addition, they add the risks and costs associated with hiring and managing new development team members, architecting, designing and developing their solution and licensing different software components.

We also bring this same “start-up” thinking to product development teams within larger organizations that need to move fast to get a new product to market or pivot with an existing product.

There are several case studies available here on the site to give you a better idea of the types of clients we work with.
What type of services does Aeturnum offer?
We combine our deep technical expertise and implementation practice with an innovative accelerator platform. Called Athiva, the platform is made up of reusable, standards-based, functional modules that cover the common business services every app needs. With our team providing the technical know-how and innovation – and the platform providing the technology foundation, including the hooks and flexibility to design and develop features quickly – we can reduce a team’s development costs by as much as 40-50%.

About Athiva

What exactly is Athiva?
Leveraging our extensive start-up and technology experience, we developed and refined a comprehensive accelerator platform - called Athiva - that provides ready-to-use and highly customizable business application services commonly used in business software products. It is highly modular and built on industry-standard technologies such as Java, Spring, Tomcat and AngularJS. It is built on a non-proprietary technology stack that is easy to maintain.
Is Athiva used on every client project?
No. We use Athiva selectively – depending on each client’s specific needs and where it makes sense. If we do use Athiva, individual modules can be quickly customized to a client’s needs. We also custom develop from scratch as needed.
Who owns the IP?
The client owns the IP. Our services are performed on a work-for-hire basis, so everything we build (including Athiva modules and source code) is fully owned by the client.
How much does it cost?
Aeturnum’s services are delivered on a work-for-hire basis. You pay project implementation costs. There are no additional or hidden costs for Athiva.
Do I need to hire my own team?
No – we will staff the project fully to get your product to market in the time period specified. If the client already has a team, we will work with them to complement their efforts.
Maintenance and Support?
There are no support fees for Athiva. Aeturnum does offer support and maintenance for any solution we build. Fees are project-specific.
Who are your customers? What do they use Athiva for? What’s been their success rate?
Athiva is used primarily by Angel and VC-funded companies, but we also work with teams in larger organizations that need to get a new or re-worked project to market quickly.

Some examples of the types of applications we’ve built using Athiva include:
  • Mobile marketing, payment and loyalty systems
  • Subscriber management systems
  • Payment & settlement systems
  • Digital marketing & ad management systems
  • Advertising analytics and attribution systems
  • Municipal services portals

Is Athiva flexible enough to build solutions or products for different industry verticals?
Yes – the platform is very horizontal and provides features and functionalities that are common to most software applications and products.
