How we work
With dozens of projects delivered to date, ASAPY has an established and efficient development process.
We blend best industry practices, tools and methodologies with our own ones to recommend the most effective approach to a particular project. At the same time, we can flexibly integrate into our clients’ business eco-systems and adapt to their developer toolset.
No matter which option you decide to choose, we guarantee:
Mature Project Management
Right after the project initiation, a dedicated project manager is assigned to drive the entire process from the requirements elaboration to the product release. A dedicated PM organizes all the required project activities and acts as a single contact point for the customer, providing reporting, collecting feedback and assuming responsibility for the timely project delivery. For each project, we select the most appropriate project management tools, from from MS Project and JIRA to customer-suggested solutions.
Flexible Development Methodology
We employ the best industry practices such as Waterfall, Agile and SCRUM methodologies or flexibly adjust our processes, workflow and toolkits to the delivery methodology used on the client side. Our software architects can easily plug into your development process without disrupting the existing workflow at any stage of the project.
Integrated Quality Verification
At ASAPY, we refer to quality assurance as an integral part of every project. Our QA department works independently from development teams to provide unbiased attitude to software quality. To speed up project delivery, ASAPY’s QA team smoothly integrates into the project, starting from the requirement gathering stage and works in parallel with the developers. This way, we significantly reduce the release cycle and optimize project costs by up to 30%.
At each project phase, we deliver regular (weekly/monthly) and ad-hoc project status reports with the agreed level of detail. All reporting is presented in a simple and clear manner to let our clients easily determine what progress has been made. We use industry-standard bug and version tracking tools and code repositories, such as Team Foundation Server (TFS), JIRA, Mantis, CVS, SVN, Git, Mercurial, Subversion, Red Mine, as well as reporting software and schemes suggested by a client.
While focusing on the final project goal, we also pay attention to its various aspects to provide a smooth project kick-off, 24/7 communication and security of clients’ data.
Every project we do starts with knowledge transfer. We delegate a dedicated analyst to collect project requirements, agree on the documentation format and development process. If the documentation is not yet created or missing, we can do a transfer from a knowledge keeper from the customer’s side, or do reverse engineering of the code.
At ASAPY, we have utter respect for your intellectual property and sensitive data. To ensure full legal security of your information, all members of our team sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement. We also employ established technical procedures to provide the integrity and security of your data including infrastructure protection, access control and video surveillance.
In every project, a dedicated project manager is responsible for day-to-day communications with a client via e-mail, Skype, office or mobile phone and project management software. We can adjust to our clients’ working hours, if needed, and ensure team availability across several time-zones.
Flexibility and Responsiveness
The ASAPY team can flexibly adapt to our clients’ processes globally, using their selected development methodology and toolset, and locally, switching to their documentation, reporting, communication standards and other specific requirements.
You can choose one of ASAPY’s flexible billing models ranging from dedicated teams to the “pay as you go” T&M option.
