Competitive advantage. This is the reason you are who you are and why your customers choose to purchase from you rather than from the many competitors in the marketplace. There is something unique about your business which appeals to them and this is why we provide software development. In many cases, we find that it is the owner of the business who creates the culture and the ‘how’ you do things which differentiates your business to other businesses. It is when your business starts to grow that keeping that unique way of dealing with people can become difficult. What if all your team could deal with customers the way you do? What if you could have your team dealing with customers the same way every time? This is what software developers can do for your business.
Purchasing off the shelf software can be the right answer in the majority of cases but if you really want to capture the essence of your business or you find yourself trying to fit your business into the software then it may be time to consider your own solution which today can be very reasonably costed due to improvements in the tools available.
Our process focuses on learning about your business and capturing the most important improvements we could make quickly, and then producing working software in 12 week phases. After meeting with you and going through lots of questions and looking at how and what you do, we can produce an initial feature specification. After this is agreed we move to a coding phase and then usually in 4 week cycles show you the software and get feedback on the progress.
The great advantage of this process is that the budgets can be very reasonable as we are working in shorter cycles. You also get the benefit of working software implemented quickly, which brings improvements to your business helping you create money for the next phase if you want to go to further phases.
