You should never become dependent on Latitude 40 or any other company. We try to do everything possible to help you keep your independence. If you ever decide to go elsewhere, you should be free and able to find another development firm to easily adopt and maintain your code.
The source code for your custom software applications is written for and belongs to you. Some companies attempt to retain (sometimes secretly) the intellectual property rights to that source code which ends up either binding you to them indefinitely or creating greater unknown costs later when you have to purchase the source code from them at a price to be negotiated.
The internal quality of the source code must be sufficient to make it easy for a new developer (whether they are from Latitude 40 or not) to be able to pick it up. Software should be well-designed and documented to allow for this.
We want to keep you involved in the overall process to such a degree that you know just as much as we do about the product. This includes all of the functions, options, data requirements, platform requirements and limitations. We can also produce training documentation that you can refer to and use to train your users.
