Have a complex project? No problem. By following the Agile development methodology, we can break down the work into smaller, more achievable steps. Our practice is to promote teamwork and regular communication along the project path so we can gather your feedback and respond with speed and dexterity as requirements evolve. Tasks are managed in time-boxed iterations called sprints, which typically last four weeks or less, each one delivering a set of outcomes that can be reviewed to steer and refine progress toward your ultimate project goal. This allows us to control costs, manage scope and ensure the rapid delivery of high-quality, customized software developed to meet your needs exactly.
At AcademyOne, we build complete solutions. This means we do more than just fulfill your business objectives – we also meet the needs and expectations of your users. Our developers and user research analysts work together, focusing on each touch point, to expertly craft a user experience that will be embraced by everyone.
First, we apply the findings from our user research to create behavioral personas and usage scenarios that accurately model how your users will interact with the software. We then use rapid prototypes and usability tests to evaluate and validate the design. Often, we will employ user groups across functional areas to pilot the new software or services, provide feedback and assist with a social roll-out upon launch. We also utilize responsive web design when building our solutions in order to make them adaptable to ensure an optimal viewing and navigation experience for your users regardless of device. Ultimately, this is the work that allows us to deliver the most engaging and effective user interface for your custom web portal or application.
