Our Approach

1. This is YOUR project

In order for a system to be successful, that system needs to reflect YOUR workflows and your needs. Prior to starting any project, a workflow analysis will be performed to define clear processes and requirements. This workflow will be verified with you both prior and during the development stage.

2. Feedback, whether positive or negative, is ALWAYS a good thing

Communication is the most important part of any project. "Negative" feedback is often the best feedback as it means you are invested in the outcome of the project and are paying attention to it's progress. Regular reporting is a key component of our development process. This can be accomplished through formal reporting or through regular scheduled teleconferences, but the goal of keeping you informed and in the loop of progress is the same.

3. Built to Last

Our main objective is to provide a solution that grows with your needs. Each solution is built in a modular fashion so as to allow additional functionalities and requirements to be added on without having to start fresh each time. It is also our objective to provide you with the tools and understanding required to manage the system day-to-day. A custom user interface will be developed to meet your preferences and can be accompanied with whatever documentation is required.
