AltexSoft fully commits to your project the very moment we start. We seamlessly integrate into your team and do the hard parts. If what you expect from your IT partner is deadline fulfillment, open communication, full requirements compliance, we are the ones for you. That is just how we work.
We believe project management methodologies, as they are by definition, work only on paper. In reality, it’s a combination of their practices used by teams of developers to achieve the best results in software product development.
If your knowledge of the project features is not complete, or you want to go live with the minimum viable set of features and then extend the product relying on the actual users' feedback, choose Scrum practices. We apply them for you to see or modify the product’s features, after each iteration, all along the development process. It suggests a lot of planning, requirement clarifications, some feature rework and your ever constant involvement.
Although Scrum isn’t cost-saving, it provides the fastest time to market, as compared to Kanban and Waterfall.
Enable a fast time-to-market due to work in progress optimization, which is the main advantage of Kanban. Since it’s very convenient for handling bugs and implementing new features effectively, we use Kanban mostly for projects in the support phase.
We prefer to use Waterfall if your fixed-cost project has a very detailed and preliminarily developed specification, especially in the Pharmaceutical business vertical. We can help you prepare a sufficient amount of project requirements to use this methodology, with minimal risks included into the budget. By choosing Waterfall, you save a significant amount of money through minimizing the overhead while accurately predicting the budget of your product, deadlines, and deliverables.
Holistic Quality Management
Our team helps you choose a technology, platform or tool that perfectly fits your project and business vertical. Meanwhile, the QA team verifies that the product complies with industry standards and all the solution deliverables are produced.
Full Requirements Compliance and Changes Handling
We strictly adhere to the contract. We negotiate possible adjustments if the scope is getting over budget. Having access to the reporting tools, you can fully control the implementation and modify the process at any given stage.
Solid Risk Mitigation Strategy
Our architects take into account all the risks from the very beginning of the project. What is critical is that our contract always includes advanced risk management policies, enabling on-time and on-budget delivery.
Transparent and Clear Communication
Clear communication with you is crucial to us, therefore the people who you are dealing with for most of the time speak good English. We regularly conduct client satisfaction surveys to maintain high-quality service. At any time, you can contact a SMR (Senior Management Representative) or our CEO with questions or requests regarding your project.
Streamlined Internal Workflow
Your future multi-featured product goes between our specialized departments. Our streamlined workflow results in clarity of processes that you are able to supervise at any given moment of time.
Regular and Comprehensive Reporting
You get regular reports and updates on your project status and anticipated progress. Throughout the process, you know exactly how many hours each engineer spends on your product, what he or she is working on, and how much it is costing you.
Such Scrum practices as daily standups, (bi)weekly reporting, and the sprint-demo used by AltexSoft enable you to closely coordinate with our team and always stay on the same page regarding project progress, potential risks and expectations. Instead of lengthy documents, you have transparent and timesaving face-to-face communications, which correlates with its high efficiency.
Along with such XP practices as test-driven development and pair programming, we apply continuous integration to make the development process transparent, produce the latest deliverables easily, and increase the product’s overall quality. Continuous integration amounts to beneficial build and deployment automation; keeping the build fast and self-testing; maintaining a code repository; testing in a production-like environment.
If your product already has a stable feature-set but needs an extension or further development, our knowledgeable specialists recommend QA automation. It significantly increases your product’s quality, because it eliminates the human factor in manual testing while reducing costs and business risks. It lets you spot all the defects and check the whole system consistency multiple times. What you get as a result is a considerable financial savings and quality uplift.
