Business analysis and consulting
Have an idea? Let us provide you with a comprehensive analysis of the potential of the business, complete with suggestions on where to improve. We deliver advice based on our vast experience with new products, market research, and a look at possible competitors.
Understanding the associated functional and technical requirements of a project is key to its successful completion. We help you identify and document these specifications, providing our team and yours with a detailed overview of project expectations and the resources required.
Forming the perfect team
By establishing requirements, a budget, and a timeline early on, we’re able to hand-pick the most productive, yet cost-effective team for your project. With the perfect team selected, we are able to design, develop, and deliver top quality results that address all of your needs.
Our years of experience have proven to us that the first step in creating a successful product is to know your audience. Therefore, we perform an in-depth audience analysis to determine what your users want and need before going on to develop a product that gives them exactly that.
Phenomenal User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) design is what it takes to make your project succeed. With your involvement, we create clickable wireframes that clearly display all of your product’s functionality, making sure that the final result will do what you need it to do.
Gorgeous graphic design
Appealing graphic design gives your product its face and we’re here to make it as attractive as possible! We use the latest in modern interface design for web and mobile products, paired with industry standards for stunning marketing materials, to make your product really shine!
Planned product architecture
Well thought out architecture is at the heart of a great product and a key component of the development process. We dedicate time to designing your product’s architecture properly, greatly reducing the amount of questions we have during development and significantly decreasing the likelihood of bugs. Our detailed planning phase saves you time and money. It also helps us build a flexible final product that stands on a solid foundation, ready for future product updates.
Modern development process
We use Agile methodologies to keep our development process organized and moving forward. Using these modern methods to manage the project allows you to have direct influence on the process, set deadlines, and keep track of the budget. We perform thorough manual and automated reviews of the code often to guarantee that top quality coding has gone into your product.
Expert quality assurance
Our QA experts join the development process from the start, clarifying requirements about supported devices and operating systems. They go on to test intermediate product builds that come out of the Continuous Integration process and suggest UI/UX improvements throughout the entire product’s development lifecycle.
Launch and post-launch support
Once the product meets all of your requirements and is launched, we hand it over to you. We respect your potential desire to maintain the product on your own or through an in-house team. That’s why we also include product documentation with our delivery, giving you all the details about the project that you might need for the future.
Most of our projects are hosted on servers that run on the Linux operating system which is extremely stable, thanks to proper setup and monitoring from our DevOps department. Our certified experts are pleased to maintain these servers to ensure that your project is running properly and we’re always there to respond in case of any unforeseen issues.
Once your product is live, you might decide that it needs to be updated based on user feedback, new versions of the operating system, third-party component updates, or a wide array of other reasons. We’re happy to assist you in making these updates to your product as it grows and matures.
We understand that a relationship built on trust and effective communication is a crucial aspect of finding the right company to outsource your project to. Our project and account managers have flexible schedules, making them available to respond to your support questions or requests at an unparalleled rate.
We’re always available to take on new projects and we look forward to working with you! Let us make IT simple.
