You have realised an opportunity to grow, or you face a pressing business challenge that none of the existing software packages can address.
You are sure that your idea will have a meaningful impact on your business, and you are looking for a bespoke development partner, who can help you bring this idea to life.
The first step in turning your idea into reality is defining your vision and confirming its commercial viability by developing the business case.
The main objective of this stage is to justify your investment by defining the key business benefits of the project.
At this stage nothing is set in stone, but diligently recording the objectives, priorities, possible risks and contingencies at this early step can prevent issues at later stages of the development process.
A sensible, concise, yet thorough business case will ensure correct alignment between your business goals and the technological approach to reach those. It will also serve as the first step in creating a partnership between you and your chosen developer partner.
There are two key objectives of this phase. First, for us to propose a specific development solution, timescale and approach, that is all built upon and confirms your vision.
We demonstrate the way forward by delivering a specification document, spreadsheet models, proof-of-concept, and a working prototype. So, even at this early stage you will be able to visualise the end results of the project, without making a full commitment.
The second objective of the Specification is for you to evaluate the solution we have put forward and assess whether you are ready to authorise the next step, the Development phase. Transforming your idea into a functional prototype will demonstrate our full understanding of your vision, and prove our ability to turn it into reality.
The milestones and timescales of the Development stage are defined by your vision, the business case, and the Specification. While the time necessary to go live with a bespoke application greatly varies by project, our development methodology ensures quick, risk-free, and flexible progress in all cases.
Our staged approach entails delivering your bespoke application gradually, adding new functionality and features through a predictable, controlled, yet highly flexible time-boxed process. This continuous delivery method benefits your project in many tangible ways.
Habitual testing and frequent feedback from your users and stakeholders ensure that your software functions in line with your vision and brings real-life value. Time-boxed iterations and milestones give your business greater control over your investment schedule.
One of the key benefits of our staged approach is that it leads to a shallow learning curve and quick onboarding for even those who were less involved in its development. Smoother onboarding generates immediate, real-life business value, so you can see return on investment sooner.
Another advantage of time-boxed delivery is that your bespoke solution will be integrated into your day-to-day workflow seamlessly. Our goal is to ensure perfect alignment between your business goals and your software system without disruption.
So, it is only natural that we will be especially vigilant in this crucial phase. Our framework, our agility, and reactive approach ensure that we can promptly identify and resolve any issues that may occur during the go-live.
Our team is fully committed to keep the mission-critical systems perfectly operational. Our history and client list prove that we possess both the appropriate infrastructure and the right mind-set to support such crucial applications.
Working with our lean, close-knit team you will have an efficient and steady relationship with the developers who look after your bespoke application.
Change is in our name and in our culture: we design your system to be organically future-proof, and we react swiftly to new requirements. We are ready to quickly build additional features based on practical use and feedback from your team and stakeholders.
