AROBS: the processes of software services, from concept to delivery
More than 20 years of experience in the software industry helped us develop robust processes. With each new project, we make sure we are the best possible software services provider for your project. Outsourcing in software services is a highly specific business. Its singular traits come from the fact that we trade skills, innovation, commitment all in an excellent structure, and these assets are in high demand.
We create business partnerships with our clients, and their success is our success. When the potential client is confident it has chosen a trustworthy partner, it changes its status into “client”. Since custom software projects can take up to 12 years, depending on the industry, trust is one of the main factors. Because we share the success criteria, we consider our clients our business partners.
In this phase, the legal departments of review the contracts and, if everything is in accordance, the project will start. Since this point, the people involved were marketers, salespeople, and designated board members.The development and testing
At this point, the ownership will move from the sales and presales team to the delivery team. The project manager, who was part of the presales as well, will receive the resources and mandate to execute the project.
The business line manager, the project manager, and the business analyst play a crucial role, translating the clients’ conditions to the team. Because it is a complex process, and requirements change along the way, adaptability is key.
Software flexibility is both its greatest strength and weakness. To leverage this amazing strength and avoid the pitfalls, we follow a rigorous development process.
One of the most popular approaches to these fast-changing business requirements is the use of agile development procexures. It advocates for self-organizing, cross-functional teams, encouraging flexible and rapid response to change. AROBS uses more similar tools and even SAFe, which is perfect for a large team and large projects.
Simultaneously to agile, depending on the industry, there are other approaches still in use, like the waterfall and V-model, among others.
Finally, though it is also a circular process, the testers and quality assurers make sure that the software fits the needs of the client.
Here is the recipe AROBS applies to develop and maintai a fruitful collaboration when it comes to IT services.
Project Setup – finding the best for the client and project needs. According to statistics, 60% of success comes from setup, 30% from the team and 10% from the management.
Team structure – we can deploy an independent team or a customer’s team extension, or based on roles, specialists. These specialized roles include Project Manager, Software Architect, Software engineer, QA Engineer, etc.
Project management – depending on the industry for which the software company creates the product, flexibility is the primary concern when choosing a specific approach or procedure, like agile, V-cycle or other methodologies.
Collaboration tools –several tools can be used for transparency on the evolution of the project. These can be very diverse, from Timesheet Reporting Systems to Source control till Issue tracking systems.
Continuous communication – since outsourcing destinations are geographically distant from the client, constant communication is a must. It includes on-site meetings, weekly video conference calls, daily meetings.
Engagement model – there is flexibility when it comes to working models as well. Software services can be project-based or time and material.
From concept to delivery, software services are like other ways of doing business just to a point. The business model is different. To respond to the market and clients’ needs, different approaches arise. Through negotiation, matching, signing the contract to delivery, avoiding common mistakes – AROBS, as an IT company, and their partners can achieve a successful collaboration.
The commonality between software services and traditional business models is that it starts at the concept and ends at delivery.
AROBS has the expertise to deliver software services for different businesses and industries and is done exclusively by highly skilled and high-demand people.
There is no shortcut to success, but AROBS, a top Romanian software company, is prepared to take every step possible to ensure the delivery of impeccable services.
