Our Web Development Services in a Nutshell

Our services are clear: We develop web applications. We custom build your application to exceed your expectations, and using Ruby on Rails for rapid development, we do so quickly. The goal is to provide you with a rock-solid application you can show off to your friends – and customers, of course.

Most clients have a general idea of what they would like, however the majority lack a clear vision of how to execute the steps necessary to develop their application. We help clients understand the process and offer help in project planning.

The application development process is crucial to a successful launch. Our cycle includes:

  • Initial application planning
  • Application wire-framing
  • Software development
  • Testing and bug-tracking
  • Code re-factoring and debugging
  • Design integration (with your provided design)
  • Application deployment
  • Production analytics and server optimization

My Idea Is Unique, Can You Build It?

You bet. Depending on the complexity of the application, the only thing that will change is the required timeline for completion and the price, our ability to execute a development process won't be hampered. Web applications follow the same general ideas, that is, create/update information, receive information, output information, and destroy information. How you go about this is what makes your web app different. Generally, these are the most popular apps which we can develop:

  • Ecommerce
  • Social networking
  • Blogging/Publishing
  • Content management system (CMS)
  • Billing and invoicing
  • Intranet
  • Account services
  • Support/Ticketing system
  • Project management
  • Time tracking
  • If you think it, we will come...

How Do You Build It?

We use Ruby on Rails for rapid application development. This allows us to write your code faster and give you more prototypes to view. We deploy your app locally on our development server and give you access. Our project management page allows you to view daily deployment and weekly status report updates. You can also leave feedback and updated requirements for us to view.

While we do integrate your provided design with the application, we do not design the front-end of the application ourselves, that's up to a web designer. However, we're partnered with Orpheux Design which create phenomenal interfaces, so if you need design work that can be covered. A package deal can save you a substantial amount of time and money.
