What is a Software Development Company’s Process?
While creating custom software tools and applications is as complex as you might guess, the process of creating those tools is actually straightforward. While each software development team will put its own unique spin on things, it’ll take customers through a process that is similar to the following.
Identify the Problem or Need
A good company will take the time to really understand your problem, your budget, your goals, and your desired outcome. Ideally, both parties will understand exactly what success looks like to be sure this partnership is a win for everyone.
During this time, your software development team should also get a feel for what kind of software will best meet your needs. For example, will you be best served by an app, an intranet, or a website (like Hubspot or SalesForce)?
Create and Develop
After working closely with you to get this project off the ground, the software development company you’re working with will begin developing your custom software. They’ll start with a visual wireframe that helps you “see” what your product will look like, and then they will begin building it out with code. In the same way that no one wants to live in a house built in a day, you don’t want to pay for the rushed custom software during this process. Make sure you know what to expect in terms of communication so you can stay up to date on progress and so you know when you will have the chance to request any edits.
Test and Troubleshoot
Once your software has been built, it needs to be tested and used. The team’s product owner will use the software just like your ideal customer would, and will note any issues that might arise: glitches, slow loading speeds, random shutdowns, etc. Before your tool ever goes live, your software development team will test everything to be sure it works and accomplishes your goals.
Once your product is finished, the software team will help you distribute it in the appropriate channels, such as the App Store or through email or social campaigns.
