Planning service
How the planning service works
Initially, we’ll work with you to gain a clear understanding of your business objectives and the targeted user base. We then work as an extension of your team to finalise the overall requirements. This involves workshopping to define goals, producing a technical roadmap, and a minimal viable product (MVP) while setting user stories based on requirements. The team will produce diagrams, high-level architectural layouts and user workflows during this process.

We then integrate a bespoke CI/CD pipeline to deploy your application to a preview environment, so that tasks can be signed off individually. This allows us to develop and deliver as quickly as possible.

Our team will advise on best practices, and approaches to developing your application before configuring our own scalable hosting platform, or one of your choice.

If design forms part of the requirement, we’ll work with you to develop the required prototypes and interfaces.

We can also integrate with existing team, encouraging best practices across the board, as well as adapting to your cultural environment – with both flexibility and transparency.

All of our work is owned by you, from beginning to end.

How the training service works
Our embedded integration into your team allows for continuous and ongoing knowledge transfer. It’s a unique approach that ensures our clients get the best of our expertise. We encourage regular training sessions to share industry best practices, and also to provide an insight into the rationale behind our particular development processes.

We also provide remote or on-site training for application end users.

How the setup or migration service works

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Our team use testing as part of our own ‘definition of done’ practices. When working within a client team, we encourage the use of automated and manual QA testing processes. During each development lifecycle (Beta, Alpha, Live) we can handle any penetration testing required to test the performance of the application. It’s this approach that has seen us pass Alpha and Beta GDS assessments.
