Our software development process

Your software in 7 steps

Are you about to implement your software project and wondering how exactly the development process actually works? We rely on agile software development to implement your project. The process of agile software development comprises six steps. We are in direct and transparent contact with you throughout the entire incremental development process. Our project management is fully mapped in the project management tool Asana.

The biggest advantage of agile software development is that you will have a powerful piece of software at your disposal after just a short time. The software already contains all the basic functions at this stage. In the further development process, the software can then be adapted even more specifically to actual user needs based on user experience and your feedback. This enables us to continuously improve your software and lay the foundation for your future-proof and successful software project.

  • Requirements analysis

    To ensure that your individual software is a complete success, the first step for us is to analyze your requirements for the software project. This also includes taking a close look at existing systems, uncovering potential for improvement and jointly identifying your needs. We work with you to document your performance requirements for the project and record the time frame within which it will be completed.

  • For us, transparent consulting is the foundation of a successful collaboration. That's why we create an initial draft concept with all the requirements we consider essential and feasible within the time frame you specify. Our developers know what is important and what you need for future-proof software. Are you planning a more complex project? We would be happy to work out a development plan for your individual software together in a workshop. This allows us to precisely formulate the offer with all the required functions and the associated time contingent. Your wishes and requirements combined with our expertise will then lead to a non-binding offer, which can avoid later deviations and delays in the development process.

  • Successful customized software requires an intuitive user interface. This is the only way users will be able to find their way around and efficiently integrate the software's functions into their work processes. Is the customized software not intended for internal use, but to be used later by customers? Then an individual and intuitive design is all the more important! You don't have your own ideas yet? Our graphics department will be happy to create an appealing design in close consultation with you.

  • Now we come to the core of the project: the development of your individual software. To ensure transparency during the development process, you will always have a direct contact person at your disposal. Regular meetings provide updates on the latest progress. Furthermore, all tasks are recorded in detailed documentation so that you have an up-to-date overview of performance and costs at all times.

  • Before we complete the software project and carry out the final acceptance with you, we subject our code to extensive testing. We check whether the software can be put into operation without errors and whether it meets all previously defined requirements. Only when our developers are 100% satisfied with the result is the individual software considered complete.

  • Now the time has come. Your customized software is fully operational and goes live. We are at your side throughout the entire process and are always there for you if you have any questions.

  • Is your customized software already being used in your company? Even then, our work is not yet done! Regular updates are essential to ensure that the software can be used without errors in the future. At your request, we can provide you with a sufficient support and monitoring contingent to keep your software operational. Our developers deal with the maintenance and upkeep of the functionality of your services.

User experience and high performance through the use of Vue + Symfony as basic frameworks

This allows us to build super-fast and reactive software systems with easy-to-use interfaces

Our custom software responds quickly and is interactive

Reaktives Verhalte einer modernen Webapp mit Vue.JS und Symfony

But what is reactivity? Reactivity in modern web applications refers to how quickly and efficiently an application responds to user interactions. A responsive web application responds quickly and seamlessly to user interactions such as clicks, keystrokes and mouse movements without the need to reload the page. This can be achieved by using technologies such as AJAX, WebSockets, or modern frameworks such as React, Vue and Angular. We specialize in Vue, but are also very familiar with the other technologies.

However, reactive programming in modern web applications goes one step further by not only reacting to changes made by user input, but also automatically recognizing changes in the data source. This means that if a value in the data source changes, the application is automatically updated without any additional instructions from the user. Our data source of choice is usually an API approach provided by the PHP framework Symfony. Symfony is one of the most popular and widely used PHP frameworks, used by many developers and companies worldwide.

Reactive web applications provide users with a faster, smoother and more engaging experience and can also improve application performance by minimizing data exchange between server and client.

Our software developers in Dortmund - individual software development in the heart of the Ruhr region

EXWE GmbH, Leierweg 13, 44137 Dortmund

EXWE has been based in the heart of the Ruhr region since 2016. For regional companies around Dortmund, EXWE is a strong partner for individual software development and tailor-made digitalization of complex business processes. Find out why the office in Dortmund is an ideal location for us in the following text:

Living and working in Dortmund

Most entrepreneurs would probably think of major cities such as Berlin, Munich or Hamburg when choosing a location. For us, however, Dortmund is an increasingly interesting business location. What makes the third largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia so attractive for working and living?

Almost half of the city area consists of waterways, forests, agriculture and green spaces with spacious parks such as Westfalenpark and Rombergpark. This is in stark contrast to the almost one hundred years of intensive coal mining and steel processing in the heart of Dortmund.

The city is also worth living in thanks to a wide range of cultural sites and museums, such as the Museum Ostwall, the Museum of Art and Cultural History, the German Football Museum as well as theaters and music venues such as the Konzerthaus and the Dortmund Opera.

Skilled workers and know-how in Dortmund

With around 600,000 inhabitants, Dortmund is one of the largest cities in Germany. In addition to a large number of companies from a wide range of sectors, the city is also home to numerous educational institutions. These include Dortmund University of Technology (TU Dortmund), Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts and the International School of Management (ISM). These institutions are attracting more and more young people to Dortmund. International and national specialists are trained in Dortmund, making the labor market attractive for local companies and creating great potential forinnovation. The founders of EXWE also met while studying computer science at the TU.

Dortmund as a business location

Dortmund's central location makes the city a very attractive location for companies. Dortmund Airport, the largest canal port in Europe and its location in the heart of the Ruhr region mean that Dortmund can be reached quickly and easily by any means of transport. The proximity to customers, skilled workers and sales markets was also a decisive reason for EXWE's choice of location.

Dortmund is one of the most important logistics locations in Germany due to its ideal location and the fact that it is home to over 900 companies.

Dortmund as a growing technology location

Dortmund has been becoming increasingly innovative in the IT sector for years and is gradually establishing an active start-up scene. One example of this is the CET, which supports those interested in founding a company in the implementation of their business ideas and helps with the transfer from research to industry.

The TechnologieZentrumDortmund is also attracting internationally active technology companies and is now one of the largest technology parks in Europe. In addition to trade and crafts, Dortmund's economic focus is primarily in the areas of "new technologies". These include information technologies, microsystems technology, biomedicine and logistics.

Dortmund is also one of the largest software locations in North Rhine-Westphalia. This facilitates the exchange and transfer of knowledge within the industry.
