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 agile software development process 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 concept draft 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 quotation that 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

We use them 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.

What is software development anyway?

An introductory FAQ on the topic of software development

  • Why is software development often expensive?

    Software development can be costly, especially in tech-oriented cities like Essen, mainly because of the skills shortage that necessitates high salaries for qualified IT staff. Development requires specialized knowledge in different technologies, which makes the process complex. Each project has individual requirements, such as system integrations and security standards, which take up time and financial resources. Quality assurance is also essential in order to avoid expensive errors later on, which leads to high costs overall.

  • What does the software development process consist of?

    Software development consists of several phases: Firstly, the planning phase, in which goals and requirements are defined. This is followed by the design phase, in which the architecture and user interface are designed. The actual code is written in the implementation phase. This is followed by testing the software for errors and problems. Finally, there is the maintenance phase, in which updates and adjustments are made to keep the software up to date. Each phase requires specialized knowledge and skills.

  • Under what circumstances does it make sense to use customized software?

    Custom software is beneficial when standard solutions are not sufficient to meet a company's unique requirements. It enables a more efficient design of specific business processes, better integration into existing IT systems and offers flexibility for future needs. Despite higher initial costs, such a customized solution can help to increase efficiency, reduce costs and achieve a competitive advantage in the long term.
