Orange County Web and Mobile App Development
At Idea Maker, we understand the necessity of a user-friendly interface. In fact, user interface (UI) is a primary driver in user retention. As a result, our experienced crew of UI/UX designers work tirelessly to create a refined and smooth user experience that makes custom software enjoyable to use.
Our custom software is developed with efficiency in mind. This means that any processes and business operations you seek to automate through custom software are streamlined, resulting in increased productivity. So, with an Idea Maker development, you can rest easy, knowing high and low-priority tasks alike are handled expeditiously.
As your business grows, you need software that can handle an increased capacity of tasks and data. Idea Maker custom software comes prepared with scalability considerations. We use development frameworks and tools that enable the swift and effective integration of third-party plugins and server-side additions. So, your software grows with your business.
No business is created equal; each company has different software requirements. With Idea Maker's custom software development services, we build applications to suit your company’s exact needs. As a result, all of our developments are unique, and we offer both minimal viable products and feature-rich software.
When building custom software, our team of expert developers takes care to ensure security measures are tight. This means integrating additional steps and protocols into our process, testing for vulnerabilities, and implementing anti-virus plugins. We aim to keep your business’s and users’ data safe, whatever it takes.
Once your software is delivered, it will require continued maintenance to ensure its security and functionality remain steadfast. No application, no matter how well built, is invulnerable to bugs. As a result, we offer post-release support options to keep your custom software functioning correctly, reducing the hassle of broken software.
We provide software development services across all devices.
We first begin with an in-depth discussion about the requirements of your project, aiming to gain a deep understanding of your needs. This allows us to build a clear plan of action and development strategy. This is also a good chance to field any questions or concerns you may have about development.
After understanding your website's requirements, we then create a wireframe. This is a brief outline of your site to represent its final functionality. It helps our development team understand how the site should function and ensure your specifications are denoted.
Once we have a clear prototype of your website, our design team then fleshes out the skeleton with sleek stylings. At this stage, we usually like to create multiple stylings for you to choose from, bringing your site as close to your vision as possible.
If you’re happy with the designs our team creates, we then move on to the programming stage. This is where the core development takes place. The earlier functionality determined during wireframing is combined with your chosen design, and the site is complete.
Once the previous four steps are completed, and your website has been tested, it is ready for deployment. At this stage, we deploy the site onto a live hosting server, usually owned by you, and make it available to web users.
At Idea Maker, we believe that post-release support is a crucial part of any web development. That’s why we offer support options with all our custom development projects, keeping your site well-maintained.
How much does it cost to develop a custom software?
It depends on the type and scope of the project. For instance, WordPress websites can be built with a few thousand dollars. Meanwhile, the price of custom mobile apps varies a lot depending on extras like HIPAA security, FinTech systems, and Encryption.
How do you handle custom software support, product go-live, and post-go-live support?
At Idea Maker, we take pride in our excellent customer support. We fully intend to support you after your app is developed, as we have with several clients before. We want to grow with you by providing maintenance, enhancements, bug fixes, and updates as part of our post-production support.
What kind of customized software services do you provide?
We work with a wide range of services. For instance, we can build either custom or straightforward WordPress websites with extensive functionality, custom-coded web apps, SaaS apps, custom-made mobile apps, and more.
Where can I read testimonials and reviews from your previous clients on custom software development?
You can check the testimonials area on our website. We embed customer reviews from Clutch, all of which are verified by a third party. You can also find customer opinions about Idea Maker on our Upwork page or Google Reviews. We’ll be glad to provide more references if you need them.
Can you provide my clients and staff members with proper documentation?
Yes, every Idea Maker project is thoroughly detailed and documented. All you need to do is inform us what kind of documentation is required, and we’ll provide it. We can also provide instructions in video format for your employees if needed.
Will your software comply with my strict standards and security policy?
Yes, we can make every necessary change and enhancement to adhere to all security needs and guidelines.
How do you ensure project confidentiality? Who owns the software that you make?
A non-disclosure agreement guarantees project confidentiality we’ll sign with our client. The paying customer keeps full ownership of the project, except when we use proprietary libraries made by Idea Maker. In that case, we maintain ownership of said libraries.
What are the average hourly rates for your developers and specialists?
We use a blended rate of $85/hr regardless of the service provided or the professional you’re working with. Meaning you can work with a UI/UX, backend, or mobile dev and expect to pay the same hourly rate.
Can you guarantee project success and deployment?
We cannot guarantee the success of your project. Project success depends on the marketing efforts and the project itself. However, we can guarantee to deliver a high-quality product with an optimized codebase, instructions and host it on a server of your choice. Additionally, we offer full customer support post-development.
What are the modes of communication that you use?
We primarily operate through email. We’ll also provide you with weekly project reports. If needed, we can open up chat communication or video conferencing.
How much will I need to be involved in the project?
Your degree of involvement depends on your own interests. We can handle the entirety of the project and deliver a functional product to the client. However, we require that you review and sign wireframes and mockups before proceeding to ensure we agree on the project’s scope and direction. Aside from that, you don’t need to be directly involved.
What recent projects have you done involving custom software development?
You can head over to the “Portfolio” page on our website, where we list all released projects we have worked on before. There you can find a wide range of projects such as iOS, Android, SaaS, and web development.
