No feasible innovation ideas? High uncertainty with no tangible results?

Working as a marketing executive and in any such non-technical role can get incredibly challenging when you have to make crucial technical decisions to get your web application built right. With the wide array of new software and web app development agencies out there, it can be the agency that is right for you because they all seem to showcase the same buzzwords and USPs. And what might appear to be the best solution to your IT consultant might be too tedious for you and your customers, because at the end of the day, it’s the non-technical end-user who’ll be interacting with your web app the most.

B-works: How we develop your web app

A good web app gives off a clear sound, look & feel of your business goals. To make this happen, it should have a powerful architecture that is responsive across all devices (desktop, tablet and mobile). Thanks to our comprehensive experience with JavaScript frameworks (AngularJs, VueJS, NodeJS), object-based frameworks (Laravel, Symfony), and open-source platforms (Drupal 8), B-works can build for you a powerful mobile application that is very secure and easy-to-maintain at the same time.

How we go about developing your web app is a two-step approach: First, we understand your business requirements and personal expectations. Then, we proceed strategically in two phases:

Phase 1: Creating concept, UX design and specifications

To kickstart, our web development agency experts work with you to clearly define the goals and KPIs of your company. Based on your requirements, a project team is assembled made up of B-works professionals with niche industry expertise and diverse project experience. User stories and customer personas in an agile project are crucial for setting a solid foundation for business success.
After profiling your ideal customer, we create detailed user stories in everyday language to gain better insights on software requirements.

Deriving from the personas, we begin the UX design stage to create a responsive web app design. Using InVision, our in-house designers sketch prototypes and create artboards that are reflective of how you want your business to appear. These are always synchronized with you so that you have constant insight into our work and can efficiently contribute your wishes. Together with the user stories, the designs form the specifications for an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) or a first go-live appointment. Once the first specification is finalized, the second phase of web app development kicks off.

Phase 2: Agile & Scrum

In phase 2, we begin implementation of the project with the agile methodology Scrum. The Scrum team, headed by a product owner (digital project manager or product manager), is made up of individual members with necessary field skills and experience (backend developers, frontend developers, designers). In a kick-off meeting with you, open questions are asked and answered and fine-tuning of the specifications is done. As a next step, user stories are recorded in the Jira ticketing system, and time required for each task is estimated.

We work on a weekly or biweekly sprint planning basis which includes a sprint retrospective and sprint review as well. This enables clarity and effective communication both internally and externally as tasks of the past week are approved and discussed, whereas those of the coming week are defined. It also is a great way of ensuring that the project stays on time and within budget. Completed software packages can be shown, any questions can be answered immediately, and your feedback can be implemented in the best possible way.

During the project, there is also ongoing testing and parallel bug fixing by our testers and developers. As soon as all the necessary tasks are completed, an initial application version is activated on a test server (a password-protected server that is not yet freely accessible via the Internet) in order to test your website. After all the user stories and requirements listed in the specifications have been approved by you, a go-live takes place by activating the app on a live server, i.e. on a freely accessible internet domain.

The B-works web app development company uses the Github program code repository, which enables us to work together seamlessly on projects, and to store and document program codes. All codes used are open source, which means that there you bear no license costs and the unlimited rights of use always remains with you.
