Custom Web Development

When your website needs more functionality than the basics, you might need a partial or complete custom solution. We have experience in product development, custom software, and agile web development methods. We work with our clients to find a solution that is the right fit for their needs.

Managing change is hard

53.80% of the web development companies feel that adapting to changing client requirements poses the biggest challenge for the developer team.

Integrations

Many websites need to talk to other types of technologies. That could be a CRM, ERP, 3rd party API, booking system, job board, shipping gateways, or other software that needs to integrate with your website. It’s essential to understand how to add these services correctly. Incorrectly implementing these solutions leads to unreliable customer experience, we can help.

Feature Development

Some websites contain features that are more interactive and complex than a simple website. Whether it’s a location finder, custom e-commerce, surveys, data-driven functionality, customer portals, or custom dashboards, our talented technical and user experience team will help you avoid common pitfalls and create the best implementation of your ideas.

Web Applications

Web applications are more robust than marketing websites. They require extra experience to complete successfully, and picking the wrong partner is expensive and ineffective. Our team has worked tirelessly to become experts at web development, API & database design, security and scalability. We provide solutions for complicated data-driven software. 

Internal Applications

Custom web applications are not always customer-facing. Often times the most impactful applications are the ones that help you operate your business more effectively. Well built back-office web applications can improve workflow, automate manual processes, and empower your teams while lowering your bottom-line. 

Product Development

Our team is specially trained in gathering requirements, product roadmaps, user experience (UX), managing long timelines and budgets. A proven-process ensures that your product launches as soon as possible with a high-quality, technically sound, Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that is improved over time. 

Agile Project Management

Project managers keep teams aligned and navigate changes in the project. Every client receives a dedicated project manager trained in both agile and waterfall management methods. As a client, you’ll receive regular reviews of the work, proactive communication, and a partner in your project the entire way.  

Our Process

Assessment

At the beginning of the project, we perform an audit that provides insights that align a digital strategy with a fantastic user experience. Solid Digital uses best practices to recommend design and technology solutions that communicate, engage, and perform over time.

Digital Strategy

Each project includes a strategic working session to ensure that our teams are aligned and there is an understanding of what you want and need. When all of our client’s needs are clear, our team creates a plan and technical approach, everything is transparent and collaborative.

Agile Development

For custom web applications, most of the time is spent in the development phase. We keep product backlogs groomed, sprints planned, and provide in-sprint QA to harden the product as we go. The goal is simple, collaborate, deliver quality, and plan for the future.

Project Management

Your dedicated project manager ensures that the product backlog is kept completely up to date and progress is tracked. We meet on a regular basis to provide you with reviews, and key information about the state of your project. You have a partner, with Solid Digital.
