We are Calgary’s Experienced Web App and Software Developers


The functionality of a web app or software refers to its ability to perform the intended tasks and meet user requirements effectively. It involves designing and implementing features that provide value and solve problems for the users. The core functionality should be robust, reliable, and well-tested to ensure a smooth user experience.

Usability Experience

Usability focuses on how easily users can interact with the web app or software. It involves designing intuitive interfaces, navigation systems, and interactions that are easy to use. Consider factors such as information architecture, clear labeling and accessibility to make the application user-friendly and accessible to a wide range of users.


Performance plays a crucial role in providing a satisfying user experience. A web app or software should be responsive, fast, and able to handle user interactions without significant delays or glitches. Optimize the codebase, minimize loading times, and ensure smooth transitions and interactions to deliver a seamless experience.


Security is essential in web app and software development to protect user data and ensure privacy. Implement robust security measures to safeguard sensitive information, such as encryption, secure authentication, and access control. Regularly updating vulnerabilities to prevent access and maintain the trust of users.

The Essential Process of Web, App and Software Development



At the start of each project, we work with our customers to build a solid project plan. The initial scope document can come from the client or a combined process of phone calls and in-person meetings.



Once the project plan and scope have been finalized, our wireframe team takes over to determine the placement of all objects on each page of the application, whether it is a consumer mobile app or a backend business application.



This is an exciting stage of the project where you can see the entire application come to life. We will provide you with clickable versions to fully experience everything the user goes through before we begin coding.



As an Agile development shop, we break down the project into baskets of features called Sprints. This approach allows our customers to regularly review the progress of their software development process and provide feedback at the end of each spring.



The testing process is a crucial step in ensuring that the product is functional, reliable, and user-friendly. The goal is to detect and correct any issues before the application is released, ultimately improving the user experience and ensuring the success of the product.



After the application is completed, approved by our internal QA, project management and the client - we are ready to deploy the code to its final destination. Hosting options vary from client owned servers to web or cloud hosting.
