We began offering our app development services in late 2012 and have been helping other individuals, companies and organisations bring their ideas for digital products to life ever since. Find out more about the ways we can help you, and how to join our growing collection of clients and partners.
To kick off the process, we'll have a chat with you about the features that you want in the app, who the target audience of the app is, and what your budget is. We'll provide some use case scenarios, competitor analysis and a risk assessment, along with a scoping document providing further information on the app we're expecting to build with you. If it's not what you were expecting, we'll agree on the changes that need to be made to the project scope. Once you're happy with the project scope, we'll prototype the app.
A UX designer will build a wireframe app, so you can try out the suggested app layout. This will give you a feel for how your final customers will interact with the app. If the layout or app navigation isn't perfect, it's not a problem to make a change. The wireframe app can be viewed on a computer, phone or tablet, so you'll be able to try it out on the device you intend for the app to be used with.
Send us your organisations design guidelines and we'll create an image set and colour scheme in keeping with your brand. If you don't have any design guidelines, simply fill out a basic questionnaire, and we’ll provide you with a set of concept designs. Choose your favourite concept, and we'll create a full set of design assets to use with the app. We'll show you every single design asset we're creating, so you have all the details that you need to be confident about the ongoing project.
Sit back and relax while we develop the app based on the scope, UX wireframe and design assets. We'll keep you updated on progress and let you know when to expect the first build. The first build will come about halfway through the development cycle. It might not be pretty, and some features may not be built yet, but you'll be able to see if we’re on the right track, and you can provide feedback as required. After this, you can receive builds as regularly or as infrequently as you’d like.
Our quality assurance team is at your disposal, and works closely with the development team (literally, they're about 3ft apart from each other), to confirm that all changes to the source code are working as expected. User experience testing is also conducted, along with automated testing, to ensure that the app maintains stability under a variety of conditions. We'll check for crashes, memory leaks, and only deliver a finalised app when we're happy that everything is running smoothly.
During the first weeks after going live we'll provide you with a user guide. We'll share with you a carefully commented & documented source code. Your project manager will still be available to answer any queries you might have, and you can even ask us to help with customer support. It will be our top priority to provide a safety net while you and your team get to grips with everything the app we've built can do.
Once we've completed all the actions from the project scope (and acted on feedback relating to these issues) we'll start the support period. Projects come with a complementary 3 month support period as standard. This gives you the peace of mind to release your app, knowing that any issues you find in the first few weeks will still be eligible to be fixed by our development team.
