Our Custom Software Development Engagement Model

Understand the business problem | Create your solution

Before we sign any contract, our expert technology consultants will sit down with you to understand your business problem or investment you are seeking to make in your business. We will develop a ‘state map’ of your current process, as well as proposed custom software solution to carry your business forward. Before you will have spent a dime, we will have clearly identified for you:

• A detailed cost proposal of a customized, technical solution to meet your needs.
• A cost-benefit analysis of how our custom software solution will enhance your company.
• A service agreement, defining the process to implement and maintain your custom software solution.

Next, when you are ready to commit, we will work together to specifically define your custom software needs.

NOCHALLENGE is an excellent company who designed my software as a system from scratch to a fully functioning, operational system. Our software is for educators and educational systems. There were some challenges with educational lingo to software design. However, the team overcame those challenges. NoChallenge has been diligent, trustworthy, reliable, and fun to work with as I was a novice to the entire process. I will be working with them again in the future!

Phase 1: Develop a Business Requirements Document

Now that we clearly understand the business problem we are solving, our senior Business Analysts will engage in several on-site or over-the-phone conversations with your Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). During these exchanges, we will document each and every function of the proposed custom software solution. Our finished product will include a detailed Business Requirements Document (BRD), and potentially a set of wireframes, process flows, and other documents that define the needs of the system.

Once the BRD is completed, we will provide an estimate date for each milestone, and our project manager will make sure that we are meeting our deadlines. Our typical projects life cycle is between three to six months based on the complexity of the project. Download a sample Business Requirements Document.

Phase 2: Wireframe Development

After we have an approved Business Requirements Document, our UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience) experts will create a custom software look and feel (Wireframe). In this stage, you will see your concept coming into reality. We will design each and every page of the application in accordance with the BRD. Once you approve the wireframes, our expert designers will create a custom design theme for the application with Photoshop. Now it’s time to start Programming and Database development.

Phase 3: Programming and Database Development

As soon as the BRD and Wireframes are ready, our programing team will start designing the database and integrate back end coding. Our preferred technology platform for custom software is PHP based open source Yiiframework or Laravel. We will discuss the technology platform and it’s benefit with you before starting programming phase of the project.

As we make progress developing the items identified in the BRD, we will upload our code in our test server so you can start user testing, provide feedback, and report any defects using JIRA (Project Management Tools) tracking software. Our certified project manager will provide regular update on the progress via email or scheduled meetings.

Phase 4: Software Testing

After each functional requirements is completed, our internal QA (Quality Assurance) team will test the function in our test site. QA team will ensure all defects are fixed before you start your own user testing. We perform both automated and manual testing for our projects.

Phase 5: Production Deployment

Now, its time go live. We understood and documented the requirements, we created wireframe, our experienced programmers coded your concept into reality, and our QA team ensured that custom software we developed is defect free. We will deploy the custom software application in our hosted Linux based server or on cloud, or we can deploy the application in your preferred hosting vendor. We will provide post production support and bug fixes until you are 100% satisfied with the custom software we developed.
