Development process

Our structured development processes enable us to deliver quality solutions on-schedule and on-budget for projects of any size. We work closely with you to precisely determine your true requirements. We then follow an exacting, iterative and incremental development process when designing and implementing your solution. Each iteration is designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible while allowing the development to be modular, thus enabling us to provide a higher quality and more cost-effective solution.

With the delivery of each iteration we provide documented, tested feature sets that can be executed and reviewed by the customer. Part of the quality of the solution comes from the feedback that our customers provide. This feedback allows us to take advantage of knowledge gained each step of the way to modify the solution’s requirements where necessary. The iteration cycle repeats until the customer is satisfied.

We do not take shortcuts when developing our solutions; rather we follow sound software engineering principles and industry best practices.
