Web Application Design & Development


Services: Web Application Design & Development

Custom web applications come to pass when a clear business case for custom software intersects with the lack of aligned off-the-shelf solutions. Basically, when nothing out there will do what you need it to do, and you know technology will make a significant impact on your organization – either the business, the bottom line, or both – you’re looking at custom web application design & development.

How We Work

We build custom web applications for our clients, often on Laravel and React JS – a powerful, battle-tested, popular and open-source stack. The majority of our web application development projects start with a Discovery Phase, wherein we do the requisite research and up-front work required to identify precisely what should be built, requirements-wise, alongside the approach and effort required.

Following sign-off on the scope of work on the subsequent Design & Build Phase, our clients work with one of our dedicated project teams through completion. We work with you in a highly organized and mature agile manner, following Kanban as a methodology. Standing Progress Review meetings (usually every two weeks) are used to evaluate work-in-progress with you, allowing us to quickly reprioritize or pivot as needed. Design and development proceed in tandem, alongside continual QA testing and formalized UA testing at the culmination of the Design & Build phase. A dedicated issue resolution period follows UA and platform training, and on approval we launch your new web application. At this stage, we shift into ongoing Managed Web Services for support, hosting (if required), and ongoing feature optimization and development.

We’ve delivered high-value, transformative web applications for organizations like Elections Alberta, Campbell Scientific, FireSmart Canada, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), and many more.
