Custom Software the Append Media Way
Append Media is an Agile development studio that crafts custom business software to meet your company’s individual needs. We do this using a unique process designed to get you the best software at the fastest speeds and the lowest prices. This process has three phases each of which is a unique service we offer. All three phases work together to ensure that you have a stable, scalable, secure, and sustainable product that will help improve the efficiency of your business processes.
The concept phase of our process is when we collaborate with you to figure out what we need to do to meet your goals. We work closely with our clients to ensure that we fully understand the problems and what we can do to provide solutions. We investigate pain points and possible roadblocks, and with your input, we blueprint out exactly the software you will need.
This is a highly collaborative phase of our process where we listen to problems and consult on solutions. This helps us create what we call the minimum viable product (MVP), a small but scalable solution that will give you exactly what you need at the lowest possible price. Even though our intention is to deliver a final product at the end of our process, in this phase, we mostly ensure a thorough understanding of a problem so that what we deliver addresses your pain points and solves your company’s problems.
This is the phase of our process where we do what we do best: create software for you. Even though our Concept phase is our highly collaborative portion of the process, we certainly won’t leave you without any contact in this phase. While we are creating, we will keep you up to date on your project, the progress being made, and the roadblocks we’ve been able to overcome while we make your new piece of software.
We do product demonstrations once a week so that you are always aware of where we are and how close to the finish line we are getting. These weekly meetings also give you an opportunity to step in and provide feedback as needed. As an agile company, we can shift course quickly and easily to make sure that you are getting the functionality you need. If your requirements change, we can change with them. This couldn’t happen without our relationship building which involves you in the process of creation.
This phase of our process also helps ensure the overall stability of the final product. You know your company best, so with the weekly updates, you will be able to make sure that the product will integrate with your other software and processes. We also continue to make sure your business objectives haven’t changed. We can alter our creative process as new features become a priority, but we always do that with your input. Our value of producing stable products ensures that we are doing what we can for the stability of the software, but since you can see what we are creating, this phase of our process continues with your input in the creation.
Our process involves you as much as it can, but at the end of the day, you and your team are the users, and you will know the difference between what is working and what needs work. From our perspective, if the software doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work at all, so we build sustainability and security into our process of software creation. Cradle to grave, your mission critical information system is always our team’s top priority. We always maintain availability for your asset-support and administrative-support needs, so your solution stands the test of time.
We don’t cut corners when we are making software, but at the same time, we also recognize that software has to work in your business environment, and it has to work alongside other apps as well. Although we don’t expect anything to go haywire, we are always prepared in case it does. Our continued support of the products that we make ensures that from the moment our product is delivered, you can have some peace of mind knowing that you won’t be on your own if something goes wrong.
Our support also means that your software is always secure. We keep our products up to date with the latest security measures, so you never have to worry about the safety of your company’s information.
If our process sounds complicated, it’s only because we take our time to make sure that we are doing our work correctly. But that doesn’t mean it slows us down. Our thorough process actually helps us work faster because right from the start, we know what you need, and we know how our development can help fill those needs. That is how we deliver the best in bespoke software at speeds no one can match.
