Software Consulting, Support and Development for Organisations Working with Ruby, Android and iOS.
We work closely with our clients as a technology partner to help grow and develop their organisations with software.
I have an idea for a new product, or my organisation is starting a new project…
Our one–day Inception Workshop explores and refines your idea, and gives you a working plan to realise your product.
After the workshop, you'll receive:
- a full report detailing a roadmap for your product.
- a set of user stories from which your development team can work.
- a wireframe mock-up of your product for demo and testing (optional add-on).
The Prototype service gets you from idea to real, working software in 30 days or less.
Great for early-stage testing and validating your concept, we'll focus on the core value of your product to deliver working software quickly, which you can test on your market, or use as the basis for ongoing development.
Two–week Sprints are how we provide full product development, including everything necessary deliver working, real software at the end of each sprint.
Each Sprint is its own discrete block of work, used to build your product iteratively and deliver the highest business value as early as possible.
Sprints are purchased and scheduled in advance on an as-needed basis. A Sprint includes all the necessary planning, consulting, development, testing and set–up.
For larger projects, we offer a Six–Sprint Pack, scoped to roughly three months of work.
