The process to realize an app project consists of the following phases:
At this important phase, we take the time to sit down with our client and understand exactly what their needs are. If a client already has a detailed specification, we can proceed to the next stage of estimating. Otherwise, we offer a prototyping/requirements phase that involves a few days of work. We will provide an estimate for this process. After consultation, our local team will then develop a clickable prototype/wireframe that will give the client an idea of the end result. This is an excellent basis for our team in Kerala to make an accurate estimate of the project and provide a cost and schedule for the entire project.
Based on the deliverables from the above phase, we will prepare a detailed offer and submit it to the client. If they are fine, we will go to the contract step.
In this phase, the actual realization of the project happens. Our project manager at the local office communicates with our team in Kerala and manages the project. The project manager plans the project and submits the plan to our client. We usually follow Agile methodology viz. Scrum. We generally follow a 2-3 weeks sprint so the clients can see the progress early enough.
Once development is complete, our testing team will take over the app to review its usability, features, and any other relevant aspects. Should any issues be found, they are reported to the developers so that they can be fixed. After successful completion of the second round of testing, the app is ready to be handed over to the client for acceptance.
We will take care of uploading the app to Apple App Store (iOS app) and Google Play Store (Android app). At this phase, we will coordinate with the client to get the necessary permissions for the store so we can upload it smoothly. Alternatively, we can also guide our clients to get through this process.
We develop cross-platform and hybrid apps with the following framework
As you see below, how a wireframe/prototype looks like. Such a visualization with clickable feature to move from one page or section to another gives you a nice overview of how the apps look and behave in the end. This is output of Specification/Wireframe phase.
