We utilize the latest development frameworks for web and mobile applications, including Rails, Angular, Swift and Android. Our team of 20 is based entirely in Dallas allowing us to make higher quality products at a faster pace than our offshore peers. We do not use outsourced labor or third-party contractors. We have developed applications for companies across a variety of industries including Healthcare, Banking, Financial Services and Ground Transportation. Our diverse team has backgrounds ranging from Petroleum Engineering to Private Equity, which gives us a broad view of the market and allows us to apply a rich set of experiences to every problem.
The initial step in our process is to discover the user’s problem that you want to solve. It makes logical sense that you should first understand the problem before firing off a solution, but this step is too often overlooked by design and development teams. Start with the problem and then move to the solution.
With the requirements of the application in hand, we then focus on constructing user flows and stories which sets the foundation for site and app maps. With the potential view structure laid out in a map diagram, the data and visual components are the next step with the final product being high-fidelity UI layouts.
Communication is everything. Throughout the project build cycle, you will have direct access to a dedicated project manager who is responsible for communicating updates, managing the sprint cycle and getting your application completed on-time and on-budget. We also use task management and communication tools such as Basecamp and Slack to make communication seamless and our work cycles more transparent.
We engage in a development practice called Test Driven Development (TDD). In practice, this means developers first build tests or “specs” prior to developing a feature and then work on the feature until the test passes. We use continuous integration and deployment tools that allow project managers to audit the testing results of the application and prevent failing code from being merged into staging or production environments. While no testing process or protocol will prevent all bugs, we believe that TDD allows us to produce more reliable and scalable code.
For all of our applications, we construct a staging environment for the functionality testing of features by project managers and product owners before release into production. This environment is made accessible to your team to provide feedback on proposed changes and updates before they are pushed to your live production site.
