When you can’t find what you need, then let Veracity Technologies build a custom software solution for your business.
Veracity Technologies strives to provide custom development services at reasonable prices and quick turnaround times. We have experience with a wide range of platforms and understand the strengths and weaknesses of each.
The first step is to Listen. We want to gain a clear understanding of what you want and what your clients want. We’re not going to start coding until we have the insights we need. Next, we’ll ask you questions. A lot of questions! Things like “who is going to use this?”, “what do you envisions?”, and “what type of budget have you planned?” – and probably more than that! We will spend some time working on a Business Model Canvas for your project. This will help us align your goals with our development methodology. We want to be fully transparent. We charge a small engagement fee to get you to this point. You’ll walk away with a development roadmap for your project. Should you choose Veracity Technologies as your development partner, we’ll deduct that engagement fee from your project cost.
A picture is worth a thousand words! Should you choose Veracity Technologies as your development partner, the next step we will take is to design your application in a story board fashion using such tools as Balsamiq and Moqups. We strive to do these mock-ups in grayscale. That way we can keep the “bright shiny” distraction to a minimum.
Often times we generate a set of interactive PDFs that you can take to your clients and walk them through your application. We find that this step helps tremendously by making sure that we’re building for the right audience.
There are many different ways to build out an application. We prefer the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) approach. This allows us to deliver something to you with just enough features to satisfy the initial set of requirements. This allows us to conduct testing to see if we’re on the right track. Test results are used to make necessary changes and proceed with the next iteration.
It’s fundamental to understand how your end users (clients and/or employees) interact with your application. Does the flow make sense to them? Is the navigation intuitive? All of these metrics encompass what we call “Customer Insights.”
It’s also important to consider how to maintain the engagement level of your app users. This may require promotions or incentives. We encourage app owners to constantly seek the feedback of their customers so that they can continually make improvements to their app.
With the ever changging platform updates, it is necessary to ensure that your custom app has its own update and maintenance cycle. That is one line item that you should budget in to your overall cost of ownership. Don’t worry, we can help you with that!
