As each of our clients has different
needs, the LevelEdge Software approach to crafting software varies
according to each individual circumstance. Generally speaking, we go
through five phases when designing custom software. The information
below on each of these stages is a guide to how we work with our
clients, though LevelEdge Software excels at dealing with a variety
of business scenarios.
We want to understand our clients’ precise
needs, so LevelEdge Software will always conduct a thorough
examination of their current processes, including site visits and
meetings with relevant staff. We work with our clients to examine
their desired end result and establish the business case for
custom-built software. We deliver a vision and scope document, which
includes risk assessment, high-level requirements and cost
estimates. We also consider the use of "off-the-shelf" components
that can help reduce costs.
Further analysis helps to refine our client’s
requirements, which inform LevelEdge Software’s custom design. This
stage can include use case scenarios, data modeling, object modeling
and user-interface mock-ups. We also deliver the plans for data
migration, product installation and user testing.
Once the designs are approved LevelEdge Software will
begin construction of our client’s custom software. This involves
translating the design into programming code, and creating the data
migration and installation tools. We routinely perform system and
user acceptance tests at this point.
Once the custom software is completed,
LevelEdge Software oversees its installation and handles the
transition from our client’s previous system. System and user
acceptance testing continues so the software can be optimized and
fine-tuned for maximum effect.
After the software has been installed and is in use,
LevelEdge Software is available to modify and update it as our
client’s business processes change. We are always on hand to resolve
any application issues and discuss further developments of its use.
LevelEdge Software: tools and
LevelEdge Software may leverage
certain third-party tools and technologies to help our developers
spend more time writing code that specifically deals with our
client’s issues. Where possible, we will use open source software to
help reduce our client’s costs.

the various technologies LevelEdge Software has leveraged in the
past. We are not limited by this list and LevelEdge Software is
