    Our Process

    We have an agile development process in creating digitally-transformative mobile apps.

    1. Requirements

    With our end-to-end solutions, a feasible timeline that integrates all your app’s specs and parameters will be built so we can build a mobile app that is true to your functional, non-functional and aesthetic requirements. From the get-go, we can also offer another set of capabilities for your mobile app that may not have been considered before.

    2. Analysis

    In determining the feasibility of your mobile app development project, device compatibility is performed. Based on this, we make suggestions of the most suitable platforms. Proof-of-concept (or semi-functional mockup) is considered to determine if the app features and functions are workable or not.

    3. Design

    Before developing the app, a strong UX design must be carefully planned before it can be integrated into the app. A poorly-designed mobile app hence it must be built with its users in mind from conception and ideation. We vouch on complete transparency so our clients would understand what pain points the custom app design must address through capturing your requirements on a blueprint.

    4. Development

    The actual mobile app development occurs. We invest on upskilling hence our in-house app developers are conversant regardless of the technology we shall use in developing your native or hybrid app. Our main deliverables are application codes and files.

    5. Testing

    A fundamental aspect of the service, our in-house QA tester will test the app on various devices and environments to ensure that the app will be deployed free of bugs. The latter affects UX negatively, leading to high abandonment rates and bad app reviews. Rigorous testing is both automated and manual. Receiving early feedbacks is critical to integrate user-driven enhancements.

    6. Maintenance

    Our mobile app development services include support and updates. In this way, we can ensure that any defects are addressed long before they exist. System upgrades including integrating new features and functionalities are included in the package.

    7. Deployment

    With years of app development experience, we came to understand the importance of distribution. The newly-developed app will be marketplace-ready, scaling to varying screen sizes.
