Methodology

To ensure the smoothest and most efficient development process, we adhere to agile and lean methodologies. They were chosen from professional experience of our employees and are tailored to the customers’ requirements and project specifics, but the underlying basic principles remain the same.

Iterative development

Our clients receive daily reports of the work completed, as well as working demo versions of the project. Due to this, you can make necessary adjustments at any stage, resulting in a product of the highest quality. This approach allows you to perform the work alongside with the analysis of the results and any necessary corrections. In addition, it significantly reduces the risks in the early stages of the project, which is why the risk management costs are also minimal.

Interaction with clients

Regular interaction with clients helps us to create a trusting and mutually convenient environment for cooperation and to avoid many misunderstandings

Code Review

Daily code review significantly improves the quality of software, enhance and complement it.

Fixed-time cycle

For easy control of the workflow and to minimize possible bugs, the whole project is divided into fixed time periods. At the end of each iteration the working product is compiled and analyzed and possible errors are identified. At the same time, a plan for further action is formulated.

Testing

TDD / BDD testing of the project lets you see it in action at any stage of development and enables developers to fix all possible code imperfections. So we do our best to meet all the customer’s requirements and deliver a high-quality, stylish and original product.

Continuous Integration

Continuous integration helps to reduce the complexity of integration and make it more reliable, due to early detection and correction of errors and inconsistencies.

Project management

Since our foundation, we have been trying to create the most favorable conditions for cooperation with our clients. To achieve this, we offer our prospective clients a range of available services, competitive prices and full maintenance during every stage of the contract. Largely owing to the consistency of our actions, we avoid many mistakes made by an average outsourcing company. We guarantee you the quality and timely results. Most of our development projects follow one and the same course of actions. Of course, it can vary depending on the specifics of the project and the special requirements of the client, but the steps points are the same.

We appoint a manager who will supervise the work on your project. After we sign a contract, the project manager will be your point of contact in AIS Novations. Feel free to discuss any questions with him or her.

Every day you will receive a report of the work completed so far. Every other day or even more often you will see the demo version of the product, which is regularly updated so as to make the necessary adjustments in a timely manner and avoid most bugs.

Your development team will present a project roadmap for your approval. In case any unforeseen circumstances arise, we always present alternative ways of solving issues, and your project will be completed on time and to the highest quality.

Your development project will be implemented by a team of professional software engineers, who will be responsible for the progress of work and control of the project at every stage.

Tasks completed and times spent by developers who work on your project are logged in the Redmine project tracking system. This data will be analyzed at the project end, and the invoice for the completed project will be prepared accordingly.

We guarantee ongoing automated testing of the software to obtain the most accurate and high quality result.
