Our philosophy on project development is quite simple. We deliver exactly what you need to ensure the growth and effective running of your business. To do this we undertake a complete analysis of your business needs with you, then conduct thorough research and use our knowledge and expertise of software development programs to identify the products that are most beneficial to your business projects.
After years of experience we are confident we have perfected an approach to the software development process. We understand the importance of considering the lifecycle of a model and our standard defines all the tasks required for developing and maintaining software.
Our proven track record involves five steps, known in the IT world as the iterative approach. To give you a better understanding of what this actually involves we would like to share with you the secrets of our success, namely: planning, design, programming, testing and deployment. To put you firmly in the picture, allow us to explain each part of the process in more detail.
To us the planning stage is the most important as it gives us a chance to get to know you and your business. First we will discuss the day-to-day needs of your company and identify which software programs meet your business needs. From there we will discuss your ad hoc projects and incorporate your requirements into the development process in order of priority. Don´t worry if you don´t know what that is in the initial stages as we will be there to advise you every step of the way. The final piece to the planning jigsaw is to agree a timescale for the completion of each stage.
Once we have agreed all the details of the product development with you we start the design stage. This part of the process is where we go away and development the product architecture. The secret of our success is not to over complicate the design work as this save you time and costs you less money.
Another rule we abide by is to work on the list of priorities agreed in the planning stage. This means we can deliver the parts of the package you require immediately in order for you to get your projects underway at the earliest possible moment without having to wait until we complete the entire programming.
We must confess that the programming stage is our favourite part of the process as this is where things start to take shape. But even here our strict work ethics are put into practice because to us programming is not only about writing code to supplement the design, it´s about developing the software that fit your current business needs. More importantly we ensure the program code is flexible enough to be upgraded at any time in the future when business requirements call for a change of systems.
You know as well as we do that the business world changes rapidly. Because of this system developments need to be optimized so they can easily be adapted to meet your future needs. And this is where our expertise puts us ahead of our competitors. When we say our techniques create high-quality products we say it with confidence. The reasons for that are because we use:
- Self-test codes: this means that the software automatically checks itself to determine whether its functions complete successfully. It is a very a powerful tool that identifies errors that need correcting and at the same time cuts down on the expense of testers.
- Refactoring: or in simple terms, a technique that restructures the existing body of code without changing its external behaviour. This basically means the programs can be easily maintained and upgraded as and when your business requirements need it to be.
- Pair work: Using two people to work on the same program may not sound the best use our resources, but over the years we have come to the conclusion that programmers work better and more efficiently in pairs because two brains are better than one. Subsequently we produce high-quality results in less time and because we deliver a complete package from the outset it saves us a lot of time reprogramming as well.
Once the programming is complete we test the product to ensure it meets your business requirements as detailed in the planning stage. Because our Quality Control laboratory is principally made up of programmers, this stage of the process is also conducted by personnel who have an in-depth knowledge of program faults and capable of identifying areas for improvement.
Deployment and Support
Once we are satisfied that all quality checks have been passed successfully it is time to launch the product live. This part of the process is what we call deployment and support. Our team of highly skilled technicians will be at hand to select the equipment, install the products, develop all the necessary documentation and make any adjust that are required.
Now you know how our software development process works we look forward to working with you!
