Process

Product development without a good workflow is difficult. That's why after completing many projects we came up with the concept of 6 steps to successful software development.

  • First date

    Communication is the key in the process of software development. We discuss the project goals and make sure that we fully understand the scope. It’s also a great time to get to know each other.

  • Pre-estimation

    Our dedicated software development team estimates the project based on the discussion with the client.

  • Agile Workshop

    We meet with the client for an Agile Workshop where we create a development plan and a backlog for the first release of the product. We use tools like Story Mapping and Product Canvas.

  • UX/UI design

    Based on the client's business goals we create a clickable prototype where every detail matters. This phase helps us understand the expectations of the users.

  • Development & QA

    We work in weekly or biweekly Sprints. Each Sprint starts with a planning session and ends with a demo a new version of the product. All the latest features are tested and ready for release.

  • Result

    Your product is now ready! But we're still here to help you with continuous development. As we listen to the feedback from the users, we'll help you implement the necessary changes to your product. Let us help you make your product successful!

What our clients say about our software development services

We received a great deal of effort for our money, and I’m happy with our collaboration. The quality of work was professional, and their team identified any bugs by themselves most of the time. Based on the ideas we provided, they came back with an improved solution. They also gave us extra product functionalities.
The initial meeting we had with DeSmart before we started the project was really effective. I recommend doing so if you have the opportunity. Also, their communication, speed of development, and expertise were impressive. DeSmart was excellent at providing their own ideas, which benefited the project greatly.
DeSmart is synonymous with service quality. The company works in a truly agile mode, regularly
delivering work increments, which allows to quickly and easily synchronise on requirement details. I was
especially impressed with the dev team’s capability to quickly learn and start using our new APIs.
In terms of deadlines, they performed well. The original timeline was for 15 weeks, and the project was completed in 17 weeks, given that we increased the scope along the way, I would say that's very impressive.
The recommendations contributed to the process by DeSmart, coupled with their questioning of our decisions, have made them stand out. The quality of their work is extremely good.
DeSmart effectively delivered a platform that served as the starting point of our business. My partner and I have been very pleased with the quality of their work!

FAQ

We realize you might not be familiar with all the aspects of the software development process. So here are a few pointers and explanations you might find helpful. And if you have more questions, send us a message, and we’ll get back with the answers.

What are the first steps when we start working together?

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.

What are the benefits and drawbacks of the technologies you use?

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.

Will I work with a dedicated contact person on your team?

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.

Do you use project management software like, e.g. Jira?

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.

Are you a stable company?

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.

Why would I want to work with you?

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.
