Custom Software Development

At Applied Engineering our talented team of developers will help you streamline workflows, manage data and find usable technology solutions through software development and support. We’ve used our experience and expertise to provide software development services to small and large companies alike in a variety of industries. See how we can fit your software development needs.

What are some of the benefits of custom software development? We’re glad you asked. It can reduce errors caused by manual data entry, increase productivity by reducing data entry, can automate manual processes and standardize business processes to improve efficiency.

What’s the process of custom software development?

We utilize an agile software development process, which means we work in small iterations (or sprints), allowing you to be part of the process by providing us feedback throughout the entire design and development cycles.

Here’s how the process works:

  • Give us a call to schedule a free requirements assessment meeting
  • Identify problems and processes you’d like to streamline
  • We then deliver a comprehensive proposal outlining the core functionality of your software application
  • We begin designing and developing your software application through ongoing iterations based on your feedback
  • User acceptance testing is conducted throughout the entire development cycle, allowing you and your users to see the software as it’s being developed
  • We deliver on-site user training and technical documentation
  • “Go Live” or implementation of your new software application
  • After your “Go Live” date, we offer ongoing support, bug fixes and software enhancements, so you’re never without help
