Engineering focused software development
We're a custom software development company, not your typical web design agency. That means we're software engineering focused. We make sure your custom software solution is built with quality custom programming and architecture. When you work with our expert team, your customized software is scalable, extendable, and maintainable.
Passion for quality custom programming
Our custom software developers, architects, project managers, business analysts, and quality assurance specialists have a passion for building quality custom applications that solve complex business problems with user-friendly custom web applications, systems integrations using modern restful API services, automation of business processes, and more. Our experience includes developing large, enterprise-class line-of-business applications and architecting multi-tenanted, scalable solutions for SaaS offerings.
Agile software development
We follow the agile software development process tailored to the project size and client preferences. Typical software development projects begin with discovery, which involves senior software architects and business analysts who evaluate and document the technical and business requirements as epics and features. With that information, they devise a delivery plan and cost estimate for the overall project.
Once approved, we assemble a group of software engineers, project managers, quality assurance engineers, and others organized into scrum teams. Work is broken-down further into user stories and tasks which are organized into sprints of work (usually two weeks a time) to be completed by the engineering team. Custom programming is regularly committed to code repositories and continuously integrated and deployed into development and test environments. This process allows the work to be delivered and deployed into production regularly getting it in front of users as quickly as possible allowing for changes to be incorporated early and saving refactoring work and money in the long run.
Proven track record building custom software solutions
We have developed many custom software solutions over our history, which dates back more than 20 years. Reviews and testimonials from our long-term clients, awards from many online publications, recognition as one of the top places to work in the twin cities, and inclusion on the Minnesota Fast 50 multiple years in a row are all evidence of our commitment to offering the best custom software development services available.
Custom Business Applications
When your unique business model is your competitive advantage, you cannot rely on out-of-the-box software to efficiently manage your processes. With customized software designed to fit the way you do things, streamline your core business functions, increase productivity, and enhance your competitive edge. With our approach to continuous development, your custom line of business application quickly grows and changes with you. No more submitting a feature request and hoping your vendor responds in a timely manner.
Production Support & Continuous Development
With our services, you can have dedicated application team that maintains and supports your applications, databases, websites, and system integrations. We monitor your custom applications 24x7 and respond to issues within minutes, keeping your websites and critical applications running and your business operating smoothly. In addition to regular maintenance such as software framework and component updates, security vulnerability testing and fixes, continually improve your custom software with new feature enhancements and modules.
Custom API & System Integrations
Your digital world is full of web services and integration points that are likely not talking to each other. Your most important custom software solutions are not always fancy web applications or mobile apps, but the unsexy, behind-the-scenes glue that integrates your systems and helps you run your business efficiently. Our experienced team’s understanding of the principles behind integrations can help you bridge the gap between the systems you’re using and the functionality you want, utilizing APIs to help you stay connected as a business.
Cloud-Native Software Development & Enablement
Scale your custom software and business with Microsoft Azure. As a Microsoft Cloud Platform Gold partner, our software team develops cloud-ready applications that take advantage of the power of Azure including auto-scaling capabilities and geo-redundant disaster recovery configuration. We also cloud-enable existing custom developed software to utilize a serverless infrastructure or lift and shift legacy software into Azure’s IaaS services to reduce your on-premises support and maintenance headaches.
Mobile App Development
Bring your business on-the-go and deliver a consistent experience across devices with a custom mobile app. For customer facing mobile experiences available in the Apple & Google Play stores, native mobile app development is best to achieve the high performance and user experience. However, developing separate mobile app versions of internal business applications for every device is a thing of the past. With cross-platform options like Xamarin, React Native, and Progressive Web Apps, we build cost-efficient custom software solutions for your entire workforce even in disconnected situations.
Business Process Automation
Automating business processes frees up your most valuable resource: time. Our team of business analysts, software architects, and engineers can design and build custom workflow solutions that eliminate tedious tasks, make your company more efficient & profitable, and improve employee morale. From custom programming the execution of legacy software packages, clicking buttons, and validating results, to fully custom workflow user interfaces to support complex approval processes, our customized software development services can meet your needs.
SaaS Product Development
The primary business innovation of our era is arguably the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, and investors agree paying multiples on recurring revenue well above traditional service profits. If you’re a startup or have an internal custom solution that could be marketed to others in your industry, our senior architects can craft a custom software design supporting multi-tenancy, scalable cloud infrastructure, and security compliance to underpin your SaaS product and help you rocket to market valuation moon.
Sitecore OrderCloud & Four51 Storefront
