Custom Software Development
What is custom software development?
Off the shelf software offer solutions for general problems and tasks, while custom developed software digitalize the client’s unique business processes and provide effective answers without any impractical features.
Even though using a ready-made product may seem to be cost-effective, due to their license price and unused functions customised solutions prove to pay off financially. Besides, owing to the digitalization of the work processes business efficiency increases steeply.
For whom do we recommend custom software development?
For enterprises where…
- the Excel sheets have taken over,
- dozens of software are used simultaneously because there is not one to fulfill all needs,
- the increasing number of administrative tasks hinders business development,
- employees do repetitive tasks,
- it is challenging to store and organize data.
- simplified, routinish written communication takes place,
- different applications need to be connected,
- manual documentation is a struggle,
- the industry is too special and no off the shelf software product exists that meets all the needs,
- it is less cost-effective to update the old software than implementing a new one,
- systematic, transparent data storage is still a challenge.
Custom software development at Alias
Business logic analysis and concept creationFrom the very start we analyze every detail of the business processes and detect all the possibilities to develop and provide efficiency enhancing automatization ideas. During the process the first elaborate mind maps and user stories are created in collaboration with our clients. We believe the key to success lies in deeply understanding our clients’ needs and discovering correlations.
Creating the software specifications and schedulingWe translate business logic to the language of the programmers and collect every single feature that the software should do. In the iterative phase of the planning we provide prototypes to the clients to help making decisions, then we indentify the most effective solutions and the choose the technologies that suits the best to the individual needs. Lastly, we mark the milestones and determine a detailed schedule.
Agile development and testing - hand in handWe divide the whole software into logical units, plan the database, then elaborate and prioritize the developer tasks. During implementation we ensure the quality of the application by automatized and manual tests, while due to our agile principles we immediately adapt to the clients’ altered needs.
User testingAfter reaching the milestones that have been set, we make the software available for the clients’ internal use and test it manually together. Any new request for alteration is fulfilled thus finalizing the software and preparing it for launching.
Delivering the software and training usersThe finalized version of the software is integrated into the clients’ system or if needed we configure it on an external server providing a comprehensive DevOps service. In order to help the users acquire all the knowledge about the functioning of the application we organize trainings and hand out detailed documentation.
