Software Development Process

Our six-stage software development process assesses your needs and meets your demands. From discovery to delivery, we have perfected every step of our process to develop software solutions efficiently and on time.

Our Philosophy of Agility

Custom software development requires a custom approach for each system that we develop but agility is at the heart of our software development process.
Agile does not just refer to a certain practice or the use of specific tools and technologies; it is a way of thinking that has completely changed our perspective of traditional software development. We prioritise customer satisfaction, effective communication, and continuous attention to technical and design excellence throughout the various stages of software development. Following the agile philosophy allows the project to evolve as we move forward. It has made our development process quicker and more flexible to adapting changing requirements.

1. Discovery Phase

When developing a custom software system, we kickstart the development process with comprehensive planning and analysis. We work closely with the client to define and document the requirements of the software system. This stage also consists of the ‘discovery’ part of the software process – a three- to six-week phase that helps visualise your idea and creates a well-defined scope of work.

2. UI/UX Design

Our team of UI/UX experts work out a well-suited design blueprint for your software that is not only aesthetically pleasing but functional and user-friendly. We put thought into every small detail of your software, from layout, navigation, buttons to all the other UI elements. The goal of our UI/UX design process is to specifically tailor an impactful, intuitive, and easy-to-interact design for your software that meets your requirements.

At this stage of the software development process, we finalise the internal and external design for the software and present you with mockup screens, workflow structure, and high-fidelity wireframes for your software. This gives you a sneak peek into the look and feel of the finished software product.

3. Development

This is the phase of the development process where your software starts being written. Our highly skilled team of developers turn your vision into a working piece of software by closely following the requirements and specifications compiled at the discovery and requirements gathering stage.

The development and implementation stage is a major part of the software development cycle and takes up most of the time. This stage can vary for different software projects depending on the development methodology. For instance, with agile methodology, the development is divided into smaller short-term deliveries called sprints, whereas with a traditional model, the complete software is developed in one go after a thorough research and design process.

4. Testing and Quality Assurance

This is the stage of the development process where the team makes sure that the software is of the highest quality and it conforms to the requirements specified by the customer. Our QA engineers thoroughly test the software solution during and after the development process to guarantee that the software performs smoothly and any development oversight is rectified.

We use various manual and automated testing methods to verify every aspect of the software until the quality of the solution meets the original requirements. Only when the software has passed all quality checks do we proceed to release it to the end-users. Find out more about testing and quality assurance

5. Deployment

After successful testing and a final go-ahead from the QA and testing team, the software is prepared for deployment. This stage marks the end of the development phase and the beginning of the process of handing over the software to you.

With mobile application development, we ensure that apps are successfully launched to the app store(s) and available to users. Our team is also experienced with planning the roll-out of complex software systems and we work closely with you to make sure that the deployment process is swift and streamlined.

6. Maintenance and Support

Our job does not end after the release of the software. It is our responsibility to make sure your software is up and running. For this, we offer post-deployment technical support to maintain your software. Our team addresses any problems with the software that you may encounter after deployment and solve them in a timely manner.

We also offer varying levels of support plans that you can choose from to avail our all-inclusive application and maintenance services for an extended amount of time.

Your Role Throughout the Development Process


We go through the six-stage development process to create a fully custom and valuable software solution for you, and effective collaboration is what makes it successful. As the client, you are the most important stakeholder of the software process and we closely collaborate with you to make sure you are fully aware of the progress of the project. This does not mean we overburden you with excessive information, but we keep you in the loop with all important milestones along the way.

The discovery phase of the software development process is where we need maximum input from you. This three- to six-week-long stage is where you can expect multiple meetings to discuss your idea and requirements. To develop a complete understanding of your project and an accurate cost estimation, we need some key information from you at this stage.
This includes the product idea, a list of features, sketches or wireframes, reference of competitors, and any technical specifications that you may have.
Beyond this stage, you can choose the level of involvement you prefer but our team will be available at all times via any communication channel of your choice.


Frequently Asked Questions

The software development process consists of six main stages:
  • Requirement Gathering and Analysis
  • UI/UX Design
  • Implementation
  • Testing and Quality Assurance
  • Deployment
  • Maintenance and Support
We will assign a relevant professional (usually the Project Manager) for this purpose. It’s always a lot more efficient and productive to work through Project Managers and not developers. However, you can go for an engagement model of your choice to coordinate with the development team. Our team will be available to you at all times via any communication channel of your choice, be it via phone, email, live chat, or any other messaging service. We also use different collaboration tools, such as Redmine, to communicate with our customers. Zoom is another key tool that we use to stay in touch with customers.
If your product was developed by another company, we can explore taking it over from them. Generally, cooperation from your existing provider is needed. Such projects are always tricky and each project is different from the other, but we are willing to dig deeper to find out if it’s something that we can help with.
An important step to get started with your project is communicating your requirements to us. After you contact us, we conduct an initial discussion to understand your requirements to quickly determine the indicative project scope and costs and identify any significant project risks.
