Our Process

Our process is based on a proprietary incremental development system in which solutions are formed by collaboration amongst self-organizing teams.

Our method starts with modeling.
To understand the project we must first understand the organization we are working with. What challenges do they face and how will our application overcome the problem domain?

The problem domain model is then turned into executable code. The code is subjected to rigorous unit testing.

Objective evaluation of quality means finding defects and fixing them, as well as verifying all project requirements are met.

The next stage is to develop system delivery, how will the system be deployed to end users?
