Hi. Thank you for watching this 6th video in our video series. I’m Jody Chaffin, and today we are discussing what the process of working with The App Pros involves.
Our process begins with a free consultation where you tell us about your idea and the problem you hope to solve with a custom mobile app. We will ask you several of the questions that we discussed in our 4th and 5th videos. We need to understand your business or business objective, your goals for the mobile app, and know what level of thought you have already put into your idea.
After that initial meeting, the next step is our Software Architecture Design Process. I like to use the analogy of building a custom home. If you wanted to build a home on a nice piece of land, you wouldn’t just hire a builder and have them start throwing boards together. No, you would first go to an architect and have them design your home first. That architect is going to ask you dozens of questions about the size of the house, your plans for expanding your family that might cause you to need to add on to the house someday, the type of finish you prefer for your floors and cabinets, do you want a one story or two story house, and on and on. That is so crucial, because without a blue prints or designs, you can’t get apples to apples bids from contractors on what it will cost and how long it will take to build your house.
Well, the same applies to custom software. With our years of experience designing, developing, and deploying enterprise software while working at a Fortune Top 20 Healthcare Software company, our team are expert architects and designers. During our design phase, we work with you to design your software, and we create the “blue prints” of your solution. At the end of that phase you receive all the documentation necessary for a development team to estimate the costs and time to develop the software. At the same time, we provide you a solid project estimate and plan for the development of your software if you choose to have us build it for you.
If you choose to use The App Pros to develop your project, we then begin our Iterative Development phase where we build your software. During the development, we meet with you every two to three weeks to show you progress and get your feedback. That way you can see regular progress and make adjustments if needed. Generally by the time we finish a project, the users have all seen and used the software along the way and most of the training is completed. That speeds the deployment process.
I hope this has helped you understand our process for designing and developing mobile apps. If you have questions or would like to provide feedback on this video, we would love to hear from you.
