How we work
Rapid iteration, lean development with a kick-ass team.
Concepting & Strategy
There is an incredible responsibility when making software that impacts lives. We start with two fundamental questions: What’s best for your users and what’s best for your business?
We want to know why your idea makes sense, why it’s going to be successful, why anyone would care about it and last but not least, how will it make your users happy. This is where our user experience designers will challenge assumptions and overhaul business points.
Working hand-in-hand with our clients, we take your initial concept and merge it with everything the Konstruktor team knows about mobile, about cloud technology, about what does and doesn't work. We turn ideas into actual software products.
Great products result from collaboration between creator and consumer. Using interactive clickable wireframes, we’re constantly challenging assumptions and validating ideas keeps us true to our intention. Once we all agree on a general direction, Konstruktor’s team fleshes out all the details.
The wireframes with a feature set documentation is your project’s bible. It’s a plain-English, written description of how your mobile or web application is going to work. It’s what our designers use to come up with designs and our developers use as a guideline for coding. It is the foundation for all the steps to come.
One of the great benefits of this process is that minutes in strategy translate to an hour in wireframing, a few hours in design, and days or even weeks in development. We progress gradually.
There are numerous reasons why we have multiple clients, who love us. Probably one of the biggest is the solid design behind everything we do. In a crowded marketplace, the perfect design will help your product stand. It’s the first touchpoint your users will have, and it’s important to make it count. The functionality of your app and how solidly it’s coded is critical. The look and feel of your app will set the tone for everything else. Our team is deeply experienced, well-trained and balancing illustrative creativity with a deep understanding of app layout.
Development isn’t just about writing code. The very first step in developing a perfect app is figuring out its architecture. We loop in our lead architect and a team of senior developers to pick the perfect technology stack for your product.
When it’s time for development to actually start, we assign specialists that match with the technologies selected during the architecture phase. Our agile-based development runs in two-week sprints that result in a new, incremental build at the end of each fortnight, allowing you to regularly review and assess what we’re building. You can also track the developed feature sets in Asana, our favorite project management tool.
Once the app is ready for the public, we launch it to the store and your website goes live. Our team does everything from making sure your desired app name is available in the store to ensuring every app gets through Apple’s notoriously fickle acceptance process.
Maintenance & Support
We offer maintenance packages that cover everything from the occasional check up all the way up to ongoing feature expansions and whole new versions.
And when it makes sense to bring on your own team to take over the app, we can help. We’ll even put your potential hires through the same rigorous evaluation we created for our own team.
