Building Custom Software Faster & Smarter
Building Custom Software requires a proven process to achieve the goals of the project. We’ve honed our skills and process over the years and know what needs to be done to achieve results.
1. Schedule a Call
It starts with a simple call with us. We will listen to what you need and want and give you straightforward advice about what needs doing.
2. Basic Proposal
Once we have our needs and wants, we will provide you with a summary proposal with a broad estimate of what it will take in terms of time, complexity and cost to deliver what you want.
3. Gather Requirements
Before you build a house, you need the architect’s drawings. The same applies to custom Software. You need to scope it out and flesh out the requirements together with a basic visual illustration of the requirements.
This helps everyone be on the same page, and for a more accurate costing of your project to be given.
4. Full Scoping and Prototype
Once a project’s requirements are known, a full visual prototype that you can click through is completed so that everyone knows exactly what the software will look like and how it will get used.
This helps you verify that what you want is what you need and will achieve your goals.
5. User Interface and Experience
Now that a prototype is built, a revised theme of the look and feel is done to guide the team on how your custom software is truly custom and built around your brand guidelines.
This also fleshes out many points regarding the user experience and how the software should be built to achieve a valuable and meaningful experience to your end-users.
6. Sprint and Release Development
With the major planning done, the development can start.
Your project is broken down into releases and sprints. Each release is a fully workable product that you can start using, instead of having to wait for everything to be built. Sprints are time-boxed to 2-week cycles, where the team works on certain features within that time period with the goal of demonstrating those features at the end of the sprint. Once a few sprints and features are complete, the release is completed and released to your user base.
7. Rinse and Repeat
This is where your project shines and our team can help you build and enrich your software with features based on user feedback.
This is arguably the most valuable phase of any project and the most underestimated. Your users are key to the success of your software project, so we use them as much as possible to improve the product and process.
8. Your Success Achieved!
At this stage, we’ve gone through 2-3 releases of your software. It’s stable, actively used and is achieving your objectives.
You can now scale the software and your business and we will continue to support you during your growth.
