What We Do
We bring product ideas to life creating mobile, web, and hardware solutions on a variety of platforms in multiple languages. It’s not enough to simply build a product and release it into the world. We combine intentional design and strategic implementation to help companies achieve their business goals on product launch day and beyond.

How We Do It
Before we write a single line of code, we work with our clients to develop an action plan, defining and refining goals early in our process.
We review goals and requirements, develop design concepts, and produce documentation to guide the project. This phase ends with all parties understanding timelines and responsibilities, and with a common vision behind the visual and functional aspects of the project.
We consider ourselves true technologists. That means we don’t limit our tech stack or follow the herd. At DevelopmentNow, we use the best tools for the job. We utilize an agile, iterative approach to development, updating our clients as milestones and features are completed. This shortens the overall project cycle and allows for valuable feedback early in the project process.
Quality Assurance / User Acceptance Testing
While some testing occurs during the development cycle, we use a variety of professional testing techniques in our QA cycle, including black box and white box testing, formal ticketing systems, and device testing.
There is nothing more exciting than shipping a new feature or bringing a new product to market. The launch phase is planned at the beginning of the project. We provide contingency planning and hands-on support during the launch phase to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
