Check out the technologies we use and our FAQ section.

Complete Software Products

For 10 years we have been focusing on dedicated solutions for projects. We design and implement software products on time and that work exactly as they should.

It can be a Web Application, a Saas, Mobile Application, Ecommerce Solution, Website or any other Custom Application to solve your pains and challenges.

We split the development of a full software product into three separate services that can be delivered separately depending on your product stage, or can be delivered one after another as they are three steps that need to be followed in order to develop a new digital product or new functionalities for existing products.

Product Types

Web Application

Web Application

Any application that runs on a web server and is accessed via a web browser is called a web application. We are specialised in developing any kind of web applications in different domains, as web technologies are our main area of expertise.

SaaS

SaaS

Software as a Service (SaaS) products are in most of the cases web applications licensed and delivered on a subscription basis. Many of our delivered products are built on this model, as in it became a common delivery model for many business applications.

Mobile Application

Mobile Application

As mobile devices are a constant presence in any user life, mobile applications are a very popular software product with a large spectrum of utility. We develop both native applications for iOS and Android and also using cross-platforms in order to make it more efficient in terms of delivery time and complexity.

Website

Website

Websites need no introduction and our large experience with web technologies includes website development. When developing a website we focus on responsive design, usability, performance and technical SEO (Search Engine Optimization). We adopt the best practices in the field and constantly stay in touch with the latest technologies in website development.

Ecommerce Solution

Ecommerce Solution

Even if ecommerce is a complex domain, on the market are many ready to use solutions. We developed many ecommerce products but we like projects with challenging needs where a custom implementation can make the difference.

Plan

Business Analysis, Technology Stack and Strategy

This is basically the planning part from the beginning of every project. It is the step where we understand the product requirements, we understand the pains that your product needs to solve and collect information about requirements.

Your product can be just a Proof of Concept (POC) or a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in order for you to test and validate your idea on the market or for potential investors.

Or, it can be an end to end solution, a complete product.

Based on the product type we choose the proper technologies to build it on.

At the end of this phase you will get a deliverable containing the requirements and the recommended technology stack. It also may include the database structure, infrastructure architecture and other mockups to describe the product that needs to be built in terms of technical aspects. It also includes detailed estimations of effort for each technology used, in order to have a clear vision about the time and costs.

It is the equivalent of an architecture plan when building a house.

You can use this document to work with us in the next steps, or you can use it as a bench document for future actions.

Implement

Product Development

This is the part where we write code to implement your product based on the features and the documents resulted in the previous step.

For this purpose we build a dedicated software development team formed out of developers skilled in technologies needed. Depending on the needs of each project we can include in the team other various roles such as testers, UI/UX experts, DevOps engineers.

We work Agile, so the team in charge of developing your product will be organised by a Scrum Master and most of all, your product development backlog will be managed by a Product Owner.

We work in 2 weeks sprints and deliver small increments of your product in order for you to validate and test features.

Maintain

Adjust, add new features and offer support

Your product is now alive and kicking. You want to adjust some features or add new ones. Or maybe you want support on using specific modules of your product.

Even if your product has been built by us or by another team, we can offer you this service on a long term.

Client profile

When is this service suitable for you?

You have a clear understanding of what your product should do and you need a partner to fully implement it.

You need to find talents and know-how and put them together in order to build your product.

You do not intend to build and manage your own development team and you prefer a collaboration where your input is the product requirements.

Software Development Services

Building a software product is a mix of different specific services.

As a company who creates its own product, you may choose to create some of the components in-house. For example maybe you want to create the interface (UI) and define the user experience (UX) with your designer. Or maybe you want to fully own the QA process, or the infrastructure (DevOps). Or, you just want to own the project backlog (and we strongly recommend that), so in other words, the Product Owner will be an internal resource of yours.

But for the rest of the services needed you want to outsource, you want a partner to develop for you specific components.

We specialize in software development services needed on the entire lifecycle of the development process.

Being an experienced company specialized in software development we are also a one stop shop for different development talents and services.

Software Services

Backend Development

Backend Development

It is about writing code that runs on the server side of your application. It can be an API development or integration or any other backend logic. We primarily use PHP as the backend programming language and Laravel as the main choice of framework. We are also open to work with other programming languages like NodeJs or Python!

Frontend Development

Frontend Development

Stands for developing the part that the user interacts with. It is about coding user interfaces, styling and writing logic that runs on client side, usually a browser. As technologies used, HTML, CSS and Javascript are an inseparable trio. We use VueJS as the main choice of frontend reactive framework, but we are flexible in working with React or Angular.

Mobile Development

Mobile Development

We work both ways, native development or using cross-platforms to develop mobile applications because there is not one correct way. The right choice depends on the project type and requirements. We are experienced with the Swift for iOS and with Java or Kotlin for Android. As cross-platform framework we mainly use Flutter, but we are flexible in using other technologies too.

Software Testing

Software Testing

Quality Assurance (QA) is a vital component in developing any software product. Testing can be done directly on the application and can be manual or automated. There is also code testing known as unit testing or feature testing, which is done by developers who will write code responsible to test an initial part of code or feature. We do both types of testing and for that we use different tools and libraries.

DevOps

DevOps

DevOps or Development Operations is a set of practices and tools that help delivering products faster by facilitating an integration of the development and operations functions. We offer DevOps services in order to improve speed, agility and quality of software development process.

UI / UX Design

UI / UX Design

Our UI / UX services consist in user research, creating scenarios and flows, drawing wireframes and mockups and in the end creating the high fidelity design that will be brought up to life by the frontend developers.

Business Analysis

Business Analysis

We collect and document requirements and specifications, as this is one of the most important steps in the beginning of every project. In other words our business analysts can translate your vision into a software development specific language.

Project Management

Project Management

For a team to work properly and in an efficient way it needs to be aligned to certain workflows and procedures. We work Agile, both Scrum or Kanban and we can contribute to ensure a solid collaboration and operational transparency in your product development.

Why us?

We build software and efficient teams

We are great at building software but if there is one thing that we are greater at, it would be creating strong and efficient teams. We are always guided by our core values and selecting people to join our family is also the first filter we apply, before any technical skill needed.

Having a great team is not enough. Teams should follow a mix of procedures, best practices, standards, frameworks and should adhere to the same values.

Before building software we build teams with people, teams who guide after strong and tested procedures and workflows.
