App Development Process Phase 1

Phase 1 of our app development process is our discovery phase. It usually takes between 4-6 days. During this phase we meet with you to understand your business need for a mobile app. Then we engage your key stakeholders in a half day workshop to gather the business requirements, map out the app, identify the components and estimate the project.

After the workshop we produce a set of wireframes. The wireframes illustrate how the user’s needs are met in the app. We then provide a detailed plan of how we will develop this, along with a timeframe and an estimate of how much it will cost.

We charge a daily rate for the discovery phase. Get in touch with us to discuss your app idea and we can provide you with our rate card.

App Development Process Phase 2

Phase 2 of our app development process is where your app is developed. At the outset we assign you a project manager. Your project manager will be your main point of contact throughout the project. They will ensure your app development runs as smooth as possible.

During the development phase, we turn the user experience wireframes into a set of full-fledged user interface designs. This is when your app is brought to life. You get to see exactly what your users will experience with your app.

We work on a system of continuous integration, which means you can take a look at a new build every day as the project progresses. We give you our issue tracker database, so you can report any issues you encounter during the development.

You will find out what your app will cost in phase one. In phase two you decide how you want to pay for this. We offer a three-prong payment approach. This includes a fixed cost, time and materials cost and the cost of a virtual team. You can tailor the pricing model to suit your business needs.

App Maintenance and Support

We recommend an app maintenance and support agreement once the development of your app is complete. This extends the life of your app. You can tailor your app maintenance and support packages to suit your business needs. The packages typically consist of an agreed number of days each month, and these days can be used as you see fit. Our support can include preventative app maintenance and/or reactive changes.
