We provide web app development and custom software for companies in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Whether you need a simple web application or a full-blown Software As A Service (SAAS) platform, we have the expertise to deliver. It doesn’t matter how far along you are in the ideation and planning process, we can help get your ideas into motion. We’ve developed a wide variety of solutions that include features such as dashboards, geocoding, image editing, e-learning, email tracking, and data visualization.
We use a rapid-application development (RAD) approach to building web apps. By spending less time planning and more time prototyping, we can better accommodate changes in scope and reduce the time to market.
Every application we build starts with discovery. In this phase, we conduct brainstorming sessions, determine project objectives, perform research, identify challenges, and propose solutions. By the end, we will have a roadmap for execution that includes a requirements document, wireframes, functional specifications, and process flowcharts.
Utilizing the materials from the discovery phase, we are able to design the user interface (UI) for the web app. In this phase, we develop a functional prototype with a unified theme of colors, fonts, styles, icons, and graphics. The prototype is meant to mimic the look and feel of the final product with navigable pages and interactive components, but without providing dynamic data or advanced functionality.
Observing how people use software allows us to apply a truly scientific approach to the user interface design. By adding at least one user testing phase, we will usually discover significantly more bugs and inefficiencies than we would by simply testing internally. We can then revise our original assumption-based designs to align more closely with the actual needs and expectations of the target market.
The requirements of the project will determine which approach we take for development. We build all web-based solutions on a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, mySQL, PHP) and use various frameworks and open-source libraries to cut down on development time and costs.
How fast your web app loads is crucial to an enjoyable user experience. We build web apps as single-page applications which means they load all the resources needed at one time rather than requiring a new page load with each interaction. We also use many different techniques such as caching, minification, and compression to ensure your web app is performing at optimal speed with every user interaction.
We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting our clients’ web apps. With AWS, we have great flexibility to build a server that suits the traffic and security needs of the solution. We can accommodate such requirements as building an infrastructure that auto-scales during heavy traffic spikes, delivering content over a global content delivery network (CDN), or implementing security mechanisms that meet HIPAA compliance standards.
Whether you're looking to begin your next project or want to bounce your idea off someone, we want to hear from you.
