Previous developers went out of business without notice

The old team abandoned the project halfway through

The developers failed to grasp your project requirements

Previous developers were incompetent or inexperienced

Failure to effectively communicate with the developers

Poor-quality software causing you to lose clients

The project became too complex for the in-house team

Using obsolete programming languages for maintaining systems

Legal trouble, contractual issues, and business disputes

How We Do It

Whether we are taking on a new development project that has to be done from scratch or trying to salvage an existing one, the first step of our process is always discovery. When we first take over a software project, we conduct a thorough audit session with the client and pinpoint and understand the exact problems that need to be addressed. This sets the flow for the rest of the rescue process.

A team of dedicated developers – along with any other required roles – is then brought in for the project. The team carries out a detailed review of the existing source code. If the developers feel that parts of the code are too far gone, they may have to rewrite them.

Our QA engineers then perform extensive tests to ensure that the software works perfectly. The system may have to be taken on a number of test runs, performed by end-users, to ensure that the software runs smoothly and flawlessly at each phase. With multiple feedback-review cycles, the code is perfected over multiple iterations.

The last phase of our software project rescue services involves the provision of ongoing post-implementation support and maintenance in case the end-users run into any problems in future.

Post-implementation help and support


Our flexible process regularly incorporates feedback from the client to ensure that the project development team continues with its tireless efforts until the project has achieved perfection. Our team will stay in touch with you over the course of the entire project recovery mission, and thus, you will remain updated every step of the way.

The software rescue team will break down your project into modules and deliver them regularly according to the pre-decided schedule. You can rest assured that our expert project management personnel will ensure the completion of your project within the allocated budget, strictly meeting your deadlines to get you back on track as soon as possible.
