By saying we possess an Agile mindset, we mean that all our work is primarily done to satisfy the users’ needs. We also understand and respect your customers’ needs and the underlying goal to do good business with the product we develop.
Our work focuses on the early and continuous delivery of business value throughout development. To us, adding value to our customers’ business means that we focus on delivering working software that is somewhat usable even in the early stages of development.
We have practices in project planning, management, and monitoring put in place to accomplish this. We seek to effectively collaborate with all business stakeholders to ensure technical excellence by the delivery team.
Trust is an essential aspect of our development process, along with daily cooperation and transparency. You have the same access to the product as the development team and can test, accept, or reject the work done at any point during the process.
You can also alter any future plans regarding the direction of the product. This makes you a team member, as you are just as crucial to the product’s success.
By collaborating with us at all stages, you can be sure that the time and money you have invested in product development is spent wisely.
The Scrum Process has several advantages, listed below:
The main advantage of an Agile approach is that throughout all the stages of product development, we have opportunities to learn and improve both the product and the development process. We are inspired to improve our process at every sprint. Using Scrum methodology allows us to work using an Agile approach.
The Scrum Master holds a vital role in making sure these improvements take place during every phase. Their role is to manage the development process, including facilitating the product and the team working on the product. Every member is equally important and committed not only as an individual but as a team.
There is also great importance placed on our work cycle, dividing it into 1-2-week sections called sprints. Each sprint is focused on tasks where we deliver a finished piece of work. We also use self-assessment techniques to encourage our growth both as individuals and as a team. After every sprint, a retrospective meeting is held where we conduct these assessments. Using this framework, we improve with every sprint, improving both the product and the process itself.
1.We always start with consulting your project with our product and business teams to see if we’re indeed a good fit.
2.We’ll then create a cost estimate and a proposed timeline.
Then we’ll organize workshops to help us define the business and product requirements so that we can build the best software solution for your needs. The people who took part in the workshops will make up the foundation of your project team.
3.We sign the contract and set up a kickoff meeting to nail down all the project details.
Our development team will talk you through all the benefits and drawbacks of a specific technology for your specific project so that you know all you need to know to make your decision before you actually make it.
One of DeSmart’s core values is transparency, and we always inform our clients about any risks involved.
This really depends on your requirements. We have project managers, testers, and developers on board, and everyone’s equally involved in the project. This means you can talk directly to the developer working on your software and avoid the usual miscommunication that can happen when information travels through the hands and keyboards of multiple people.
Yes, we communicate using Slack and Jira and try not to use email too much. We’re also open to adjusting to the tools your company uses.
Oh, we are. In the past 19 years, we’ve completed over 200 projects and have a full-time in-house team of about 30 people. We’re also the founding members of sodapl.com – the Polish Software Development Association. Go to https://clutch.co/profile/desmart to read what our current and past clients have said about working with us.
We’re a boutique software house hiring a maximum of 30 people. Among other things, this means that your project is always a priority for us – we just can’t take on too many projects at a time. We’re also super honest and transparent and will always give you a clear picture of what’s going on.
Our team includes experts with many years of experience, and we’re often asked by other software houses to support them with their projects.
We also have a unique company culture. We’re teal-oriented and value a human approach to software development (which is why “Human-first software development” is our tagline) and work in general. And you can see it both in how we run the company and the way we work with our clients.
