As one of the premier app development firms in the industry, Arbormoon understands that the best app development comes as a result of a well-defined strategic direction. Is it marketing? Sales? A new way to support your existing product lines? A better way to support your sales staff? A new way to improve internal processes? Mobile can improve almost every aspect of your business, trimming costs, increasing revenue, and possibly all of the above. Let Arbormoon walk you through an analysis of how best to utilize mobile for your company, before you go to code, and then help you realize the vision throughout the development process.
Arbormoon has designed and developed apps and software for iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android (smart-phone and tablet), and BlackBerry. We’ve done it all, from small projects for start-ups to large enterprise systems for multimillion dollar companies. For us, the focus is on the quality, craftsmanship, and ultimately, the utility of the results we provide. We have designed multi-media apps, informational systems, and fun, creative apps.
So what’s the process?
Consulting and Strategy
The first step is to make sure that we understand your concept as well as you do. Our talented team will meet with you and help you develop and fine tune your idea so we can begin to create an architecture for it.
We listen. And we can make sure your mobile strategy fits in to the broader goals of your organization, whether revenue, marketing, production, or analytics. Your mobile strategy should be a distinct, and at the same time, a seamless contributor to your overall objectives.
If you are currently developing a mobile app and are stuck, just need some professional advice to get you over the next hurdle, or some one on one coaching, we can do that too. We will help you move forward.
After we have a firm grasp on the project, we create a detailed architecture leaving out no details. This architecture comes in the form of diagrams, demos and design documents.
If time and money are factors in the success of a software project then software architecture is equally proportional. The basic idea is that the cost of developing a well constructed document set with demos, and fully laid out logic, and functionality is far less expensive than developing in code, designing and testing. There will always be changes in the development of the most well laid plans, but you can minimize them and their subsequent budget increases.
Before the coding kicks off, the developers will need the design to be finalized. Our designers will work with you to to create a pixel perfect mock up and finalize all the design aspects. The art is then handed to the developers for inclusion in the app.
This is where the magic happens; our developers will disappear in their caves, collaborate, consume vast quantities of caffeine and produce a product that is air-tight and polished. All the while, our project managers will keep you posted on all the developments and issues that might arise.
During this phase, it is vital to keep lines of communication clear and updated regularly. The bulk of the work is done in this phase and this is when changes have the most effect. However, this is also the time when you see your project come to life.
Testing and Deployment
After a healthy round of testing in-house and with our clients, we help them to deploy their app in the appropriate stores.
