We contacted 12 companies to develop our web application. In first meeting with Ivoryshore, we were convinced with their level of expertise. Entire development process was handled very well. Ivoryshore helped us organize our feature requirements and delivered the project on time.

Our Development Process
We organize 2-3 brainstorming sessions with you (client) to kick-off the project. This is termed as requirement gathering & analysis stage. These sessions help understand your vision and convert it to deliverables. More we understand your target market, thought process, requirements, competitor landscape etc better we can deliver.
This document will have detailed list of features, platform to be used for development, content requirements etc. Wireframes will be developed. Wireframes is like architecture of the proposed website. You can provide feedback on these wireframes. Once wireframes are approved, we proceed to the design. Wireframe stage helps to ensure that end product is as per your expectations & features to be developed in next stages are as discussed.
Our Creative Director and Designer takes the lead in this stage. For clients, this is the most interesting stage as you start seeing the real design. You start seeing your vision turning into reality. Therefore, we provide Free revision to the designs so that you feel completely satisfied with the outcome. Number of free revisions to design will be mentioned in your project scope document. Once design is approved we move to the next stage.
Developers often call this as heavy lifting stage. If design is the beauty, development is the brain behind the beauty. Our development team starts working on the backend to customize features as per the project document. At completion of this stage you will get a link to active web application. This stage includes but not limited to, development external API integrations, payment gateways etc.
Development of custom web application involves integrating dozens of softwares, plugins, and writing thousands of lines of code. You might have noticed bugs and issues with some of the world’s most famous softwares too. In recent history, most talked about was issues with Apple iOS Maps. Therefore testing the website before launch is the most critical yet often underrated part of development. We do multiple rounds of testing. This will help find and resolve bugs in the web application. Client is also encouraged to review and test the web application to be double sure of its functioning before official launch. Number of testing rounds included in your project will be mentioned in your project document or at the start of the project itself.
Finally the day of joy is here. We move the website (custom web application) live. This involves moving tons of code from trial server to live server. Each server may behave differently therefore we often do one round of testing on live server before switching the website on for your end customers.
Depending upon your plan and project scope, from here you start running your online business. As and when required we will provide you technical maintenance service so that you can focus on your business and are not worried about day to day running of your website.
