Custom software development is the right solution if you have a business process that is specific to your product or service and you want software to match. If your methods have evolved to precisely meet your business requirement then you want software that matches your way of doing business.
Our on-time on-budget software development expertise was built over 30 years. We help large and small clients in a wide range of industries. If your goal is process tracking, decision support, accounting, data storage and analysis, reporting, information communication or marketing, we have successfully delivered a solution that matches your need.
You are going to be pleased over the long term as well. We differentiate ourselves by designing custom software that anticipates changes to your process. We generalize our solutions so they can be adjusted as your business changes. Cost of ownership starts at a reasonable price and does not materially increase.
We work with the latest technologies which have proved over time to have the lowest cost of ownership while providing the best scalability. We most often work in the .NET or PHP open-source environment.
The Best Approach to Custom Software Development
A team approach. Each Strand project is developed by a team of technically excellent developers skilled in several areas. The team is led by a senior manager who has at least ten years experience.
We provide teams of individuals so that you aren’t limited to the expertise of only one person. Your project receives a full spectrum of system architecture and design, database expertise, network analysis, code development and testing, code review and in-depth problem analysis resources.
We also feel that teams are the best approach because they ensure that several people will know your project intimately and that no single individual becomes irreplaceable. People get sick or become otherwise unavailable. This fact of life should not jeopardize the success of your application.
A proven methodology. The greatest impediment to on time delivery of a software application is an imprecise assessment of where the technical hurdles lie. We use a proven “On Time Methodology” to ensure that the technical difficulties are explored at the beginning of the project. We can then quickly construct a demonstration solution that proves that the material technical challenges have been overcome. We can all then be confident that the project schedule is reliable.
Maintainable, standards-compliant code. Our project teams are trained to implement for maintainability. They know the importance of coding standards and their code is carefully reviewed by their coworkers. Your team will learn your implementation standards as they understand and appreciate the need to develop to your specifications. We provide technical oversight as both a training tool for developers and as a means of ensuring high performance and maintainable applications.
Cost effective pricing. In the case where your project can be precisely specified, we can provide a fixed price for the work. We are experienced at managing offshore development and when appropriate work closely with excellent offshore development teams. We maintain a full-time team of employees and have additional resources available to meet your needs.
Knowledge sharing and training. We will freely share all information about the structure of your systems, the organization and relationships entailed in your data and discuss both their strengths and their weaknesses. We will be happy to train your staff in any technical area. With greater understanding of your systems, comes the ability to derive more benefit from them. We will then assist you in finding the most cost effective combination of our services.
Ongoing support. We know that you may need support so we are available over the long term. Our commitment to you lasts as long as you need. We have customers we continue to support who have been with us for over 30 years.
