PROJECT BASED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
We believe in transparency. For which reason, we communicate with the client at every phase before and after sign-off.
Thus, each software application is scaled individually as a result of a faithful compliance to the distinct development phases.
Closing steps of the proposal
After making sure projects stick to the budget and requirements agreed, we create a final proposal and hand it to the client for approval. Our proposals include major project parameters such as hours, timeline, budget, and payment schedules. Once agreed upon by both parties, we are ready to get into the first development phase.
Kickoff with wireframes
ROPARDO prepares wireframes for most application screens and profiles general functionalities. This phase sometimes involves the client’s team meeting our project managers, designers, and developers. This way all requirements are transmitted to key stakeholders on the project.
Dynamic user experience
End user applicability is what we go after with our software results. We focus on user experience and user interactions from early phases like software architecture design of the software application. To meet finest results, our front-end developers program cutting-edge technologies and tools.
ROPARDO has competence in managing full development projects lifecycle. Each project has a project manager assigned to work with the client and coordinate open-ended project activities. We are experienced in conducting long-term development projects and consciously evaluate projects as they unfold.
Ongoing, agile builds
We apply Agile software development practices, focusing on short term goals as bricks that build to the envisioned larger project. Our developers are versed in handling agile methods for daily project updates, including managing daily to-do lists and using code repositories for version control. Developing in the agile mindset enables our clients access consistent updates throughout the whole development processes.
Issues from the regular builds are identified and managed to prepare beta version of the project. It is sent to the client for concluding feedback in terms of usability and functionality. During the beta stage building process we practice continuous integration, working with up-to-date code bases to prevent conflicts and undiagnosed QA issues from occurring.
QA & Testing
Our Q&A engineers naturally handle multiple testing tools and techniques under an accurate quality assurance process to identify issues related to functionality, usability, interface, performance and security. We can use automated tests on a regular basis following a specific plan developed in the early phases of a project.
Once the quality assurance phase is completed, the application is ready to be launched. Our developers are versed in implementing applications online while making sure that the client’s development team is well prepared for this phase. Launch dates are dealt with during the early phases of the process and our staff works hard to meet all project milestones on time.
Code of a completed project is transferred to our clients who have full ownership, rights, and intellectual property associated with the code. A key advantage of using open code is that the client’s team is able to manage it after transfer.
