Project Development & Delivery

How long does it take to start my product development?

To start with, we review project requirements from the client, we get them analyzed and then inform you of the estimation results. Once you are fine with the cost and time, the next step would be to create a project report document and a proposal. Our team prepares all the needed documentation with requirements and sends it for the client’s approval. Once everything has been finalized, we would then take the project to the next stage, which is the start of the development process.

What does your software development process look like?

A product development process stands for the multiple stages that a software development team takes to bring the idea of a product into reality by undergoing software product development steps.

Thus, we rely on the software development life cycle (SDLC). The procedure implies building high-quality software within the shortest possible period, in line with the 7 phases of the software development life cycle.

The development life cycle phases involves:

  • the assessment of the user’s needs,
  • research on customer behavior and marketplace competition,
  • creation and visualization of the roadmap,
  • concept design,
  • code development,
  • creation of a minimum viable product.

With a seamless and well-designed SDLC process, we don’t miss a thing and find the balance and the best possible solutions between different actions while developing software.

What software development methodologies do we use?

Our professionals use a wide range of SDLC methodologies for creating apps: from the Waterfall Model to the Big Bang Model. We choose one of them based on our expertise and the requirements of your project. Our team also considers the size of the budget, the timing, and your wishes. We create solutions that help you to achieve solid results in your market.

We document all the operations required to handle the development of your digital product and measure them according to the following key parameters:

  • Activity description;
  • Milestone documentation;
  • Project scope statement;
  • Organizational assets.

What control do you have over project development?

You would retain full control over all stages in the development life cycle of your project. You can monitor the process through regular calls and meetings, track the status and exercise of every task.

Within a set of meetings scheduled throughout the whole development cycle, we would inform you of the progress in regard to the project roadmap. We divide our entire work into sprints for ease of tracking and so you can make changes in the scope at any stage.

How do we assure privacy and confidentiality?

We sign NDAs and Confidentiality Agreements as required by the client. All our employees work for us full-time and are bound by company Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure clauses.

Additionally, for sensitive projects, we can sign custom NDAs.

How do we comply with Intellectual Property issues?

We have developed our own Service Agreement and NDAs and have signed them with all our development teams. The agreements ensure the confidentiality and the full transfer of ownership of the intellectual property from the developer to the company. After you decide to outsource your project to us, we sign up for a software outsourcing agreement that transfers all IP rights to your company.

How do we ensure security and risk management of your product?

When you outsource your projects to our company, we not only provide software development services but manage all possible compliance and security issues.

Our specialists evaluate all types of threats before creating your digital product including confidentiality weak points, IP compliance, third-party integrations, data management, and others. This approach allows us to discover the possible risks on the prospecting stage and create the appropriate policies to prevent them.

How do you guarantee product quality?

We evaluate the result after every two weeks, we test our work (we conduct both development and acceptance tests), we present it to you, we ask for the client’s feedback so the clients know they get what they are paying for. Also, we have continuous communication with the client, so that there are no surprises and we move forward in the development only after the client’s approval.
