Software Development Process

Our software development ensures successful delivery of your project. Learning your business we identify shortfalls and streamline your business with software solutions and optimisation. With early prototypes, interactive mock-ups and by working with agile methodologies, we add create software that adds value to your business.

Our Software Development Process.

Project Starting Stages

Every business is unique and we want to recommend the best solutions for you. We start by assessing your business in its entirety. This means we look at your production processes, sales, financial processes, management systems and costs. Weighing these processes against your business aims, we will produce a report identifying wasted efforts and costs and advise solutions.

Understanding The Problem

We are focused on achieving return on your investment (ROI), with an aim to make an immediate, positive impact on your business operation in the short term and overall savings in both time and money in the long term. As part of the assessment of needs, we will outline where the immediate benefits can be found and where larger investments can be realised when continuing to work alongside us. Optimisation is putting in effort to allow future effort to have a greater impact, so we never suggest something you don’t need.

Thoughtful In-depth Planning and Review

Once an understanding of how your business works is reached, we produce an “optimisation road-map” for your business. Working with you to ensure that the technologies and/or processes we recommend can provide efficiency improvements that lead cost saving. Core aims of optimisations will be to induce savings in both time and money.

Helpful Support

Investment in terms of time and money can be costly and so planning is conducted with the budget in mind. Solutions will be tailored to have a value rating, where the most cost-effective approaches will be weighed against the size of the impact to your business to plan the best route for the current budget. We produce a report on the potential approaches to optimisation, allowing you to plan the needed changes to your business’s future. During each phase of optimisation we support you through the provision of consultation, software and equipment.

Perfect User Interface Design

When the road-map is agreed, the required solution can be designed, whether this be software to aid management of accounts / report on sales, the introduction of a hardware solution to manage stock to prevent waste, or even the creation of a bespoke application to prevent continual fees from third-party software products.

Tailored To You

Each design is tailored to provide optimisation alongside your business needs. Once we collaboratively agree on a design, we will work tirelessly to implement it. Our team is driven to turn your vision into reality. We love seeing the savings that come from our software solutions.

Agile Development

An agile development approach is taken to provide working solutions to you with continuous development. This allows for improvements to software systems without disruption to business operations. All whilst working towards larger changes that lead to your perfect optimised solution.

Small but Big

This is where the work pays off and the fruits of the labour are realised. Little changes that make a big impact to how the efficiencies of your business can be increased. Each deployment will aim to make your business a little more efficient each time, while working toward your perfect system.

Critical Eye Testing

Key to a reliable and trusted solution is good testing done carried out by professional testers who liaise with both clients and the account managers. We document all testing, use the most advanced testing tools, and wherever possible produce automated tests. Once we deliver a feature, we want it working forever.

Ensuring Perfection

Your solution has got to work right for you and must work right for your business, and so putting time into testing the deployed solutions is core to our delivery. We pride ourselves on a solution that is robust, useable, intuitive and works for the business and the employees who use it!

Final Project Deployment

Once tested to ensure quality, the solution can be deployed to your business. Once the impact is seen, a measurable and noticeable impact should be seen. It is at this point the “User experience / impact” can be studied and the solution tailored or refined as needed or desired.

Simplicity is Released

Whether a single module of improvement or an end-to-end system of optimised process, the deployment is the moment where your savings through investment start to be realised. We aim to prevent the disruption of any current businesses as little as possible to enable trade to continue and the business to work while our solution is being implemented.
