Web App Development

When you choose Codelation for your app development project, you gain a partner who is dedicated to understanding the big picture goals of your organization and helping to find the best way to get you there.

What is a Web App, Anyway?

Websites are great for sharing information, but when you need your website to actually WORK FOR you, you are looking for a web app.

Some examples of what a custom web app can do for you:  

  • Improved profitability through online sales
  • Provide valuable tools to increase efficiency for your team or clients
  • Build SAAS products for virtually any industry
  • Generate and deliver custom reports to stakeholders
  • Create unique eCommerce and Marketplace solutions
  • Develop software integrations and custom dashboards

We have a simple mantra when it comes to starting a new app development project – “Think big, start small, and learn from real users.”

Think Big

You are an expert in your field – we’re going to have some catching up to do before we can understand what makes your business tick.

  • What is your vision for your business in the short and long-term?
  • What is it that you provide that keep your customers coming back?
  • What are the overarching processes that drive your business?

Questions like these aren’t just great for establishing a good rapport, they are critical to understanding the nuance behind every feature request or requirement for your project.

We understand that in most cases, the product that we are being asked to produce is only a small piece of the much bigger puzzle that is your business. Taking the time to understand your whole business is a critical step to ensuring the resulting product will be a good “fit.”

Start Small

Do you ever worry about sinking a ton of money into development only to find out you’d missed the mark and people just aren’t interested in the resulting product?

Approaching a development project as a ‘one-shot’ endeavor is one of the biggest mistakes we’ve seen many entrepreneurs make. You’ve likely spent years working on the ground game for your business, your technical development project shouldn’t feel like a “Hail Mary” pass.

We’ll help you come up with a great initial product launch that your users will love, and we’ll find a way to do it as quickly, and as cost-effectively, as possible.

When we help our clients come up with a small initial product launch, we are effectively saving them tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on what might have been otherwise spent on a very expensive educated guess.

Learn From Real Users

Once you’ve launched your initial product you’ll be in a much better position to rely on real user feedback to drive future development on your product.

We’ll help you access that user feedback and turn it into actionable tasks to improve the product and increase customer conversions and retention.

Did you know that Codelation provides an in-house product manager to help you create a great product for your users? Your product manager will help you understand how to interpret and respond to user feedback.

The Technical Side

The vast majority of our clients aren’t super ‘tech-savvy’ so don’t think this needs to mean much to you now, but in case you are curious…

  • Ruby on Rails 5
  • Postgres Database
  • Amazon S3 or Google file storage
  • Vue.js
  • Heroku
  • GitHub

We’re excited to help you with your web app idea!
