Product Methodologies that Serve your Purpose
Software development methodologies help you design, develop, and maintain products in alignment with
your users, goals, and the way your team works. This alignment is critical, as it impacts the length,
costs, and outcomes of your product implementation.
That’s why we direct all energy and efforts to understanding your vision and context before we choose
the guiding principles and processes that will ensure optimal results. Most often, we choose between the
Agile and Waterfall methodologies, offering the flexibility to combine both approaches, if suitable.
Agile provides continuous, concurrent iteration of development and testing to maintain a
customer focus and ensure visibility into quality at each stage of the project.
The flexibility of this approach allows self-organizing, cross-functional teams to reduce
re-work and implement changes fast, according to user feedback and validation.
Agile development lends itself to projects that:
- Aim at delivering business innovation through trial and experimentation
- Include few initial product and regulatory requirements and require new changes to
be made quickly, without documentation
- Involve independent, self-organized distributed team members who can work
unsupervised and take ownership of their work
- Require high product-owner involvement and collaboration with the development
Agile makes up around 60% of our software development projects.
The linear, structured Waterfall approach presents clearly defined scopes and
well-documented processes for stable and timely product delivery.
The development cycle is rigid and it proceeds from idea, through design, implementation,
testing, and deployment.
We usually recommend the Waterfall approach in the following scenarios:
- Small projects where the requirements are clearly established and can be executed
- Projects constrained by cost/time, with a fixed budget and predictable deadlines
- Implementations with multiple software components that must be designed for
integration with external systems
- When the customer expects an upfront understanding of the project outcomes
We follow the Waterfall methodology in about 40% of our projects.

Engagement Models Tailored to your Needs
Depending on your project requirements and specifications, timeframes, and available resources, we offer
three engagement models to maximize the benefits of our collaboration:
We can augment your in-house development resources with skilled technical experts on either a short- or long-term basis. Our developers, QA engineers and project managers will become a core part of your team, devoted exclusively to your project. We can also provide the necessary equipment and infrastructure based on your requirements.
Billing based on hourly rates
Full control over the project progress and budget
No need for costly and lengthy recruitment
Time & material-based collaboration
Our software specialists can add value to your complex projects that are prone to change by offering their services in the time & material model. With this approach, billing is based on the actual time spent on development and the cost of materials and equipment used. It’s a flexible arrangement where you’re not committed to a long-term business partnership
Payment based on the completed work
Agility to modify the workload and adjust resources any time
The transparency that reduces the risks of unmet expectations
In this pricing model, we provide you with a fixed estimate of our work, based on the project details provided by your team. Together, we define the expected deliverables, milestones, and timelines, and agree on the final cost. Once everything is set in advance, you delegate work to our team and wait for the outcomes.
A fixed budget and predefined milestones
A low-risk model that saves you from unforeseen expenses
An economical option for short projects with exact requirements

By implementing the following principles, we help you attain your goals with minimum investments, regardless of the product methodology, engagement model, or project scope.

Steady enhancement is part and parcel of the rapidly evolving software development process. We never stop learning and validating new ideas to constantly add value to your business solutions.
Our teams balance autonomy with alignment to take advantage of individual strengths and at the same time stay on the same path to achieving your goals.
Our roadmaps set milestones underpinned by your goals, not mere product features. This way, we tailor our tools to build effective systems that fit within your budget and meet your requirements.
