A process that fits your needs.

Our development process is a flexible framework that adapts and responds to you. It is the streamlined result of decades designing and building solutions for corporate clients, small businesses, and startups.



We start every project by listening to you. We ask questions and document your goals and requirements to ensure we have a clear understanding of your vision. We create a plan for your project that details core user scenarios, identifies priorities, sets milestones, and specifies deliverables and a budget.



Once the plan is approved, we sketch screens, design the navigation, workflows, and add detail to the user scenarios we started in the plan stage. Visual assets and interactive prototypes are delivered to share with your team, investors, and potential users. The design stage involves various collaborative sessions between you and our team to conduct reviews, get feedback, approvals, and adjust as needed. Our goal here is to create a blueprint for development.



With the blueprint and visual designs as our guide, the development team begins to build your software using start of the art, professional grade tools. We focus first on the core features and addressing risks identified in the plan stage. Our goal is to build quickly without sacrificing quality. Prior to delivery to you, our team tests and validates what is being built. We develop in phases to get you the earliest delivery of features for review and feedback.



At the test stage, we put the product in the hands of your beta users so you can pre-flight how well things work and get insights through analytics. During testing, we help with gathering and understanding the usage data, watch for crash reports, and offer recommendations on design improvements or additions. The best model for success involves iterating through design-develop-test cycles to learn, make improvements, and get ready for production.



The product is beautiful and functional and thoroughly tested now. At this stage, we can help publish your software to the Apple and Google stores and servers in the cloud. You own the code at this point but that doesn’t mean our relationship is over. We stand behind our work and offer services to measure usage, discover trends, make improvements, plan future enhancements, and support your operations.
