Our Approach

Web app development process

Step 1: Research and Discovery

Our web app development projects start with a Discovery Phase. This is where we determine: 

  • what you need out of your app 
  • what your users need out of your app 
  • what are the core functions of your app 
  • how we’re going to approach the project
  • what a realistic timeline looks like 
  • and any other important starting points 

Step 2: Design and Development

Once we’re all on the same page about what the project looks like and how we’re going to get it done, we start doing. We use Kanban as a methodology to keep the project moving forward smoothly and identify any hiccups quickly, so they can be dealt with in a way that disrupts the project the least.

We maintain regular contact with you, sharing updates and previews of our progress to ensure you’re satisfied throughout the project. Using an agile approach like this enables us to stay nimble and pivot whenever needed, resulting in the best possible output.

What you’ll see in these status meetings could include: 

  • Navigation exploration
  • Preliminary interface designs 
  • Functionality demonstrations  
  • Prototype walk-throughs
  • Sample data and reporting outputs 

Step 3: Testing, Launch, and Maintenance

As we work on the design and development of your web app, we’ll also be testing it throughout the process. This consistent and recurring testing ensures we can handle any errors quickly and effectively and can also avoid surprises at the end of the process. Our most comprehensive QA and UA testing occurs shortly before launch where we make sure everything works smoothly for your users. Once we push the app live, we transition from the build phrase to a maintenance phase, offering you app support and development based on your needs moving into the future.

Building Value

Web app experience

The value of an app goes beyond providing a service—it’s also important to consider the experience of using the app. A good web app makes life easier for the people who created it and the people who use it. As a web app development company, we carefully consider every perspective during development so everyone can get the most out of your web app.

User-centred

User-centred means that we put ourselves in your users’ shoes to consider how they want to accomplish their tasks and what features would make their experience as smooth as possible. 

Outcome-driven

Outcome-driven web app development means that each detail and functionality included in your app is created specifically to help your users complete one or more actions. These tend to be actions that they need to do on a regular basis and should be easy to accomplish.

 

We offer web app development for your company
