Like a lock and its key, we believe in finding the right fit. This means you get exactly what you need, and we get to apply our experience to your project. Before we decide to work together we'll do a quick analysis of your project to determine the fit. Match made, our technical sleeves are rolled up and we're ready to go.
We use a combination of Continuous Engineering, Lean and Agile principles which reduce delivery time and increase quality.
Our process contains three core steps that we iterate over to complete your project:
Understand your needs, identify the issues and define appropriate goals. We'll determine the minimal viable product and establish a critical path. Finally, we make sure that everyone is onboard with the approach.
Milestones set, the team begins writing software. Working code is deployed several times a week so you can gain feedback in real time. We'll continue to dial it in and make sure we're building according to your needs.
Get your project live and into the hands of your users. Additional features and adjustments will be steadily added until it's feature complete. Now we track metrics, tune for performance and response to user feedback.
