Envision a solution that allows your business to do exactly what you wish it could. Would you like to connect your employees, customers and suppliers through web- and office-based software? How much more efficient would it be to gather vital insights from your data with custom reports? Have you been needing to leverage the skills that your staff possesses to improve company-wide productivity and increase profitability? Do your customers need easy access to your system from tablets and smartphones everywhere they go? Play what-if and how-about with our developers to see just how far your vision can take you.
Using close to thirty years of experience creating custom systems, we will quickly bring your idea to reality. We get things started with a collaborative planning meeting that ensures that your software vision is fully understood. We will create a software design that will be tailored to align with your real-world problems that need to be solved. Our team will will also consider alternative approaches, judging each based on the requirements of the problem. The design will be reviewed to ensure confidence that all requirements will be fulfilled.
Once the design phase has been completed, our software development team will begin crafting your custom built system. The development process may include research, reuse, prototyping, modification, re-engineering, and any other activities that may be required. The project will be broken into smaller segments as an approach to try out certain features. This will allow you to monitor the progress of each section of your program, providing for easily made changes during the development process.
We make the deployment process straightforward and painless. In most cases your data can be converted and tailored to work with your new system. This will greatly reduce duplication of effort in setting up your customer’s records. Initially after release, a short period of time may be spent running both old and new systems concurrently. This will ensure that the new system will receive a thorough inspection. Once both you and our developers are satisfied that the new system is working correctly, your legacy program can be retired.
After delivery, we’ll keep things running smoothly so you can focus on your business. Any bugs found in our software will always be fixed free of charge. Management of your system will also include modifications of your software product to improve performance and to adapt to the ever-changing world. We’ll also set up a development environment for you to test out new ideas. Our systems are always designed so that alterations can easily be made at a later date.
