We Solve Custom Application Challenges for Companies Just Like You

Do you have an application idea for your business that will become your main revenue stream? Do you require custom developed software to help your business operate?

If so, partnering with a custom application development company is just what you need to help get your business off the ground.

While each custom developed application solution will be different based on a company's requirements; experience has taught us that in many cases every unique application starts by addressing similar business needs.

Some of the most commons challenges we’ve helped our clients solve include:

Missing a specific expertise

Your Challenge

You have almost everything you need for success; the brilliant idea, domain specific knowledge, and capital. You’re just missing the technological skillset to get the application idea off the ground. There’s no budget or time to hire a new employees with the tech expertise you need and all of the other pieces you have won’t matter if you can’t launch.

The Solution

With our comprehensive knowledge and experience, we can jump into projects and get up to speed quickly with minimal handholding. We’re keen listeners and will collaborate with you on approach options based on your needs, budget and technology requirements. Using our technical expertise, you’ll receive an elegant custom developed application that will scale cost effectively with demand from your user base. Now you can watch your idea grow rather than your salary budget.

Too many hats to wear

Your Challenge

You have so many facets of the business to manage; a million details everyone wanted confirmed yesterday and your deadlines are merciless. How are you ever going to find time to successfully assemble, manage and lead a software development team that will play one of the most crucial roles in your company’s success? You need a team that knows what they’re doing and can take the lead in application development, giving you time to take care of everything else; like managing your business.

The Solution

With our proven experience in spearheading small to large application development projects, we can provide the leadership you need! Through every phase, we will deliver what we promise and protect your funds by ensuring application features are justified and prototypes/minimal viable products aren’t thrown away. At last, you can feel confident taking care of other things because you have a reliable, knowledgeable partner who knows exactly what’s required for success.

Can't justify full-time employees

Your Challenge

Financial commitments need to stay at a minimum. Your operating line has limited funds and you need to ensure you can allocate as much of it as possible to customer acquisition and getting a prototype or MVP released. You can’t justify a team of full-time software development employees based on the amount of work required and the fact that these resources will sometimes sit idle.

The Solution

With us as your technical partner, you’ll have access to smart cost cutting solutions, established procedures to save time, and a transparent process with technical leadership to help make the project a success. Our team can accommodate a wide range of needs. You can invest in our abilities and experience as you need them for crucial deadlines or save budget when possible. Finally, you can achieve the results you need without the burden of more salaries.

Tight deadlines & deliverables

Your Challenge

You’ve got big goals to achieve and high pressure deadlines for investors and pitches. There’s a long road of expectations to meet or you’ll risk losing the success that follows. You could bootstrap your in-house team, but with all of the pressure they’re under fulfilling other requirements, they don’t have time to deliver what’s needed with another excruciating deadline.

The Solution

With our proven track record, we can handle pressure and successfully meet your custom application deliverables, while reducing strain on your team. We excel at finding ways to maximize production time; often it means developing multiple pieces of the architecture in tandem or quick and cost effective development iterations/pivots to give you the flexibility to respond to requirement changes from customer and investor feedback. Now you’ll have more ways to tame those deadlines.
