We Make Software Development Uncomplicated
That’s why our clients have increased chance of success
What does it mean?
Software Development is a complex process that requires many moving parts working together in harmony for a piece of “usable” software to be produced. The complexity of this process is usually the source of surprises and inefficiencies in projects which result is delayed deliveries and cost overruns. These inefficiencies and surprises can be reduced if decisions are made with a better understanding of the software development process and their impact on the project.
We help key decision makers of a software project make better decisions by making the software development uncomplicated. Understanding each moving part and how that impacts the overall project will give them the insight to reduce the risks of the project.
Using our unique approach to software development, which is a mixture of lean software development and agile processes, we can deliver projects on time and on budget with fewest surprises possible. This enables us to increase the success rate of software projects.
“I dealt with 2 other companies before working with A.Y. Technologies, and I had horrible experiences with both. The other firms told me that my goals weren’t possible, but A.Y. Technologies told us they’d find a way that was cost-effective. It’s been nice to work with them.”
Shirzad Entezari, Owner of Sorat Wheels
In today’s fast-paced environment, everyone is trying to get faster and faster. In software development this approach is resulting in projects that start without the clear picture of the goals and the scope of the projects. This leads to failures for the project and the companies involved in it.
We believe these type of failures are easily preventable if the projects are slowed down to start and planned accordingly. We believe there are other important aspects of software development that if neglected can make software that are “unusable”. They will be either to expensive to build, or too expensive to run and maintain. Using the right approach, we can build efficient and maintainable software.
Qualified Team of Experts
- Our senior engineers and architects have been developing software for more than 15 years. They have seen many ways software development can be done wrong and can use that experience in recognizing risky situations.
- Managing teams and projects throughout their career showed them how timely decisions can make teams more effective and projects successful.
- Unlike a lot of other development firms that just see projects from a technical point of view, we’ve been involved in projects from the ideation to customer success.
- We understand that a successful projects is more than just its features.
- We understand Usability, User Experience Design, Customer Journey and related factors that our usually missed in by technical firms.
- We also understand Scalability, Performance and Security and have helped startups with their strategy, approach and implementations.
- Being a small company allows us to be agile in our interactions with clients and their projects. We can turn around feature requests and bug fixes much faster than our competition which means we can deliver products to markets faster and more reliably.
