When there's not an app for that...

Our Strengths

With over 30 years experience in solving complex engineering problems, it's likely that your software development project is something we've seen and had success completing.

Enterprise Application Development

Sometimes there's no way around it. Your business processes are too complex and out of the ordinary for "off the shelf" software.   We excel in bringing together multiple technologies to produce a custom solution that will meet your needs.

Mobile Development

Mobile technologies and applications are evolving past "cool apps" to being a key to enterprise process automation.   We have the expertise to weave these mobile solutions into your business processes.  That's not to say we can't help you with your "cool app".

API Development

Consolidating your business process code into concise, extensible, reliable, and maintainable application programming interfaces can leverage your automation investments.  A secure, scalable, well documented API means that your business logic code can be leveraged by new devices or applications.  You won't have to re-invent the logic for the next new thing.

Integrations

Bridging the gap between exisiting systems can help you get the most out of your technology investments. There are many ways we can help you create these bridges.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the things we're asked on an ongoing basis.

cost

Will you develop an application for equity in a start-up?

This is not likely.  Writing code to get an application concept to "work" is only one of many steps to creating a viable software product.  A startup that is not able to pay for developers is not likely to be able to pay for the people and infrastructure required to scale to millions of users.  While we make every effort to accommadate budgetary concerns, we simply can't afford to develop software for free.  It's how we pay the bills.

time frame

How long does it take to get an app written?

This varies based on the number of things you want the application to do.  We do endeavor to break large projects up into monthly deliverables.  That way you can evaluate and perhaps even use portions of the application while the full extent of your project is being developed.

cost

How Much does an app cost?

Like the project's time to completion, a project's cost varies with complexity.  We do try to break the project down into monthly deliverables with a fixed cost.  With our current resources, these fixed fees range from $8,000 to $20,000 a month with the variation being how many developers, project managers, and software testers we assign to the project for that time frame.  If you can agree to take on some of the project management and testing we can get close to the lower end of that range.

process

Where do you start with a new enterprise application, mobile app, or integration?

A project manager will contact you to perform an evaluation of the project.  Many do not realize the level of process detail required to build an application of any size.  Our project manager will walk you through "what if" scenarios while building user stories to script the application as if it were a movie or stage production.  This exercise will lead to a set of user stories that can be broken down into programming tasks that will allow us to create a very detailed project plan and time estimate.

process

Why can't you just start writing code?  The user story process seems to be quite the interrogation, is it necessary?

Absolutely, you don't want the "what if" scenarios our project manager uncovers during this discovery process to be revealed after your project goes live. It's best to discover as much as possible before even one line of code is written.  This is most efficient for everyone involved.  It's less frustrating to users and developers alike when we take the time up front.

support

How long do you support the software after it's written?

Priority support is free for the first 90 days, during the 90 days we come to a mutual agreement on the service level required and arrive at a support plan.  Some clients opt to bring the application in house after its developed and our straight forward  intellectual property agreements and our source control methodologies make this a smooth transition.
