How we work
We build applications using IRAD: Interactive Rapid Application Development
Step 1: The Strategy
First we identify the problem. We meet and discuss with you about the issues you are facing, and we use our industry experience to suggest the right solution for you. Research and planning are established in this phase as we guide you through your roadmap development, critical business decisions and technical implementation strategies. Successful business applications are created with the perfect blend of technology and design. The Coactive application developer team focuses on combining human interaction with state-of-the-art technology; the true secret to customer added value.
Step 2: The Plan
We quickly turnaround a plan for you that works within your timeline, resources and budgets. Using IRAD, we provide clients with an initial app framework within hours, which means the development process is significantly faster compared to other app developers out there. We work with a suite of tools that enable full-stack development, deployment, scale, maintenance, and support of cloud applications that work on any internet enabled device with a browser. We accommodate development processes whether they are Waterfall, Scrum, Agile, or something in between, helping you to cut your final costs without impacting on the quality of output.
Step 3: The Design
When the basic framework for the business application has been agreed on, we start to build in the UX design – the true path to successful business applications. You are involved in this process closely as we progress through performance and user testing phases, making sure we nail it first time round. We adopt the latest techniques together with our developer experience and we guide you through this process at your own pace. Our goal here is to provide both maximum user adoption through logical and natural UX, as well as beautiful designs that your users will enjoy – all within your company branding of course.
Step 4: The Delivery
This is where IRAD really kicks in. You will find this process to be a natural conclusion as our engineers develop your product according to all the information, research, conversations, input and decisions made in the Strategy, Planning and Design phases. Our philosophy is that every problem has a solution, so we don’t allow technology limitations to stand in our way when it comes to providing you with the best customized business application experience. When it comes to compliance and security it is important for you to know that Coactive evolved from regulated industries and has the tools and technical backing to be the basis to your compliant application needs. Coactive is both HIPAA, HITECH, and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. We use a highly secure architecture that allows for discrete and secure user control over every aspect of developing tables, fields, views, scripts, etc. The platform utilizes SSL and web sockets to ensure transactions are encrypted and safe for use, for example, in Defense and financial institutions. Our developers can easily define custom application-level security to meet your specific roles and responsibilities profiles.
We won’t leave you stranded all alone! When you launch and scale your app, you can do it either within your own infrastructure or you can opt for hosting services like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc. Furthermore, we have a robust API architecture that lets you integrate other systems into your app with virtually all systems that have APIs. Google Maps, Salesforce, SAP, Oracle, SQL Server, Tableau, just to name a few. We can also provide you with ongoing maintenance services to support timely, efficient and compliant upgrades. Thanks to IRAD we perform upgrades with ZERO costly downtime to your business.
