The development process of an individual software

In 7 steps to your future-proof software

Step by step to your individual software solution. The development process of your customized individual software requires six or seven steps. Thanks to our agile approach, the software can be quickly and efficiently implemented in your company. EXWE's experts will accompany you from an initial needs analysis and tailored consulting to the creation of a unique concept, subsequent implementation and an extensive test phase. Once the test phase is completed, the software can go live! However, our work does not end with the go-live of the individual software. We are happy to support the introduction of the software in your company with customized training for your employees and are responsible for your inquiries as part of our support and service packages.

  • Requirements analysis

    In order for your individual software to be a complete success, the first step for us is the analysis of your requirements for the software project. This also includes taking a close look at existing systems, uncovering potential for improvement and identifying your needs together. Together with you, we document your performance requirements for the project and keep a record of the time frame.

  • Consulting

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

  • Planning & Design

    A successful individual software needs an intuitive user interface. This is the only way users can later find their way around and efficiently integrate the software's functions into their work processes. The individual software is not intended for internal use, but is to be used later by customers? Then an individual and intuitive design is even more important! You do not have your own ideas yet? Our graphic department will gladly take over the conception of an appealing design in close consultation with you.

  • Development

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

  • Test

    Before we complete the software project and make 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 the previously defined requirements. Because only when our developers are 100% satisfied with the result, the individual software is considered finished.

  • Go Live

    Now the time has come. Your individual software is completely ready for use and goes live. During the whole process we are at your side and are always there for you if you have any questions.

  • Support & Monitoring

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