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.
