I am Brad Hammond, owner and principal architect and software engineer.

No smoke and mirrors: Currently I am a one man shop. Established in 2014, On-Demand Software Solutions Inc. is a registered Corporation filed in the State of Iowa. I elected a corporation structure to protect the client from misclassification liability insuring that On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., is a separate legal entity under which is in a contract with a client. This separation of client and On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., insures that Brad Hammond, Managing Director of On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., cannot be considered as an employee of the client organization, "A director of a corporation is not an employee with respect to services performed as a director" (common law definition used by the IRS). In addition to this, if we enter into an agreement, that agreement will follow the common law rules.

On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., is a software engineering, consulting and staffing company for small to mid-sized businesses. We have the talent, skill sets, and the tools and equipment to build high quality software solutions. We offer short-term project work or long-term part-time services. From a couple weeks a year, to a few hours every month, and up to a few days every week, we provide on-site business analytic, architectural design, enterprise software development, and implementation and support services. Together, we agree on duration, frequency, and rate to develop your custom business application.

Principal developer and managing director Brad Hammond has been developing software solutions for over 18 years. Prior to starting On-Demand Software Solutions, Mr. Hammond worked with consulting companies in Minnesota, North Carolina, and Iowa developing enterprise systems for large and small companies. Mr. Hammond has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Information Systems from the School of Business, Saint Cloud State University, and a Master of Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the School of Engineering, University of Saint Thomas. Mr. Hammond is also a certified Project Management Professional.

Our Rates

Guranteed Rate

A guaranteed rate is based on a partnership between you and On-Demand Software Solutions. The partnership is based on commitment, dedication and a guarantee from both parties. You estimate the number of hours, frequency and duration of service work that fits your budget and business cycle, and commit an annual, dedicated, and guaranteed amount for services and I will commit and allocate dedicated hours of on-site work on demand at a guaranteed rate of $65.00 an hour. For example, if you have a maximum annual budget of $25K for I.T. services and guarantee this amount, I will commit a minimum of 385 hours of service work at your disposal. If you need a full-time dedicated resource for more than a couple of months than the role rate option should fit your needs.
