We Can Do Better
In an industry with extremely high failure rates for IT projects, we don’t fail. Ever.
How do we do it?
We’ve been serving Long Island, New York City and the Tri-State area for more than 30 years. With experience comes wisdom.
We put that experience to work with you with a design and development process that ensures your project is optimized for success from our very first call together.
No project succeeds if the client and the software development team are not totally aligned on the project goals and objectives. This most critical step is always our first.
We take an in-depth look at your business, your business goals, and your current processes. We talk to you about what you are trying to accomplish, what problems you are experiencing, what just drives you crazy. We talk to all the key stakeholders so that all perspectives are considered. And we are careful not to monopolize their time – they have jobs to do also. We take whatever time is necessary to make sure that we are clear on what needs to be accomplished through process improvement supported by software development and that you and your team are clear as well. Only then do we begin to think about a software solution that will deliver on these objectives.
Once we are aligned in what the software solution needs to accomplish, our business analysts create a comprehensive overview.
This design and information flow document for the software development process details the functional requirements together with identified touchpoints for the software. This document is presented and reviewed by all key stakeholders in your organization. Comments are gathered, questions addressed and revisions made, if necessary.
Once all key stakeholders agree to the functional requirements, we prepare a detailed design document that contains pro-forma screens, data requirements, business rules, and reports.
Again, alignment and approval is gathered from you and your team before any actual software development is initiated.
Then you are presented with a detailed software development project plan, final cost estimate, and analysis of expected benefits to the company. The plan highlights all major milestones with timing, which helps keeping all parties accountable to delivery dates and provides a framework for successful system development and implementation.
We incorporate frequent reviews with you and your team during this time. The software is reviewed, demonstrated and revised as it is being developed.
This iterative process helps to ensure that all objectives are being met as the software development project moves forward and is a critical part of our path to complete success. A further benefit of this is that in the rare case of issues arising, these can be dealt with and resolved quickly, with minimum impact on project timing and cost.
Before we implement, the system undergoes rigorous testing. When it passes our tests -and yours – only then will the system be deployed.
Once deployed, we will work with you to monitor its use and functionality to ensure that it delivers seamlessly on all of your key objectives. Once we are all in agreement, the project is complete.
We’re dedicated to your continued success and don’t walk away when the project ends. Businesses evolve, especially when a new software system is incorporated into operations.
So, we continue reviewing the results of the work with you, and how the software has affected your business. We are available to modify or refine the process, continue as consultants, or even come to you with the new ways that technology can transform your business. Let us help.
Our project management service starts with defining your project and ends with delivering on time and on budget. In between, we lead, manage, create and implement, whether we are working with your team or ours.
We adhere to the same standards and processes that have seen the successful creation and implementation of custom software development solutions for all our clients, from feasibility to delivery. We work with you to understand your goals and create a system designed to monitor workflow, measure progress and ultimately deliver results.
Each project is tailored to your needs, staffing and budget. We have experience working with large corporations or smaller organizations for single projects.
