“When I am working on a
problem I never think about
beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem.
But when I have finished, if
the solution is not beautiful,
I know it is wrong.”
— Buckminster Fuller

Some of the first questions our clients ask are about the process of developing their web sites, office systems, or large-scale development project. While the nature and scope of projects vary widely, we draw upon our skills of software engineering to ensure each project is accomplished on-time and under budget.

We do this by ensuring our process is followed which has been found to be repeatable and reliable. Our process is flexible and adaptable to projects of many sizes. We too are flexible and wise enough to realize not all projects are truly created equal. In virtually all cases, our process must be adapted to ensure project success. With an awareness of all phases of software engineering, we are confident in our estimates and can reliably complete the projects within our agreed upon budgets.
