In the majority of cases, our new customers are referred to us by our present clients, discover us through the tech community or find on Google. After going through our services and reviewing our website, customers get in touch with us by email or an online form.

After receiving the request, we would schedule a 30-minute call to sketch the details of the project and figure out the key moments of partnership. The discussion will cover some important questions about the project, such as:
Applicability. Does your project fall under the scope of our expertise (custom software, web apps, mobile apps, integrations, and web design)?
Business Requirements. Do we have expertise in your business, what are business needs and challenges that we will need to take.
Timeframes. We will figure out if our availability correlates with your timeline expectations.
Budget. What is the approximate investment needed for the project execution and does it cover all the stages of development?

Creating custom solutions for building software is challenging, like any other process that includes customization. Even if the idea of your project is clear and seems pretty simple to you, most likely there are tons of complex underlying operations and mechanisms hidden behind the concept.

To start an effective development, the team must know what to work on - and the discovery phase is created exactly for this purpose. The R&D stage lets us learn your project’s ins and outs, and go through all the required features. Such research helps the team gain an excellent understanding of your project, and will help us to assess timelines and costs accurately.

Simplified, the discovery stage looks like this:

1.Describing the different types of users (general user, admin, super admin, etc.).
2.Describing the most important user stories for the various types of users.
3.Describing the key features of the app.
4.Building wireframes for the primary pages of the app.
5.Planning which technologies will be used for the front-end, back-end, server, etc.
6.Creating a definite timeline for each development stage and for each large project section.
7.Creating a well-defined cost estimate for each large section of the app and each stage of the software development process.

Once we are finished with the discovery process, we’ll provide you with a detailed report about everything mentioned above.

What You Get in Result:- R&D Report.

A well-made design is a must for every app. Regardless of how diverse, functional and useful your application will be, the visual part introduces it to the user. If the design is dull and tedious, chances to get your customer’s attention almost equal to zero. We care about the visual part and believe it’s as important as the functionality.


The design process includes:

Building wireframes for every page of the application: Wireframes are the set of sketches used to create the application structure and the layout of the pages. Basically, it’s a visual schematic guide to describe user interactions: left and right swipes, button taps, etc.
Information Architecture: Once all of the wireframes are built, we create an information architecture showing how all of the pages and sections are connected.
User Interface Design: After completing the basics, we can move to the visual part. At this stage of development, we choose which colors, fonts, and icons to use. We will also provide you with a style guide (or how it’s called right now - design system) for future design campaigns.
Interactive Prototype: The final step of the design phase is to put everything together into the prototype, so you can see the exact prototype of your project. We put all the mockups into InVision App - a tool that will give you a final image of the project’s design.

What You Get in Result:- CLICKABLE PROTOTYPE & READY TO DEVELOP SOURCE FILES.

Despite coding is an extremely important part of building software, we start this stage only after doing the research and creating the design. Writing code is not only time- and effort-consuming but is also much more expensive. To save you from extra-payments and to avoid the rebuilding of an entire project, we start with an easier and simpler discovery and design stage. Once we are done with the design, the team of developers can start coding.


The development phase includes:

Setting Up the Development Environment. We start with creating a general plan of development and setting up all of the systems that are required for the project.
Preparing Infrastructure. Setting up servers, Amazon or DigitalOcean. What’s better for you solution.
Developing Data Architecture. Developing data architecture means building the basics of the app: setting up user accounts, structuring data, etc.
Building Features. The next step is to develop each feature that will be used in the application. We determine all the required features and user stories and transmit them to Jira - our development project management system. Each story is assigned to a certain developer with a stated deadline. When all of the sections are completed, the features go from Jira to the quality testing.
Quality Assurance. All the completed features go to the quality assurance team, which tests the code for bugs and inconsistencies. To assure the proper functioning of the application, we set up an automated test suite and use several testing paradigms. It provides the coverage of high-level behaviors of the system and ensures the performance of every single module. This test suite steers the team towards further development and ability to maintain the optimization easy.
Once quality assurance is completed and the test suite is implemented, the team is ready to deliver the beta version of the application.

What You Get in Result:- SOURCE CODE (in Git repository).

Project Managment As we’ve already discovered, building software is not as easy as it seems. The process of creating the project includes various complex operations and multiple interactions between many people. Building custom software is complex by its nature, and there’s no wonder that it involves a lot of communication between the team and the customer.


The team for your project will mainly consist of:

1.an account manager, who is responsible for business management and customer relations 2.a project manager who coordinates the entire project 3.a designer 4.a frontend developer 5.a backend developer 6.a quality assurance tester who oversees the code and tests it for bugs

For each project we're working on, there is a following communication tools and process: Jira, Trello, Slack and what's app

What You Get in Result:- COMMUNICATION POINT & PLAN.

Once all the parts of the project are developed and combined, a beta version of the product is delivered. It goes to the trial period to fix all the bugs and add missing features before the final launch. The stage of beta testing shows how the app will function and how the real users will perceive it, so it is a crucial phase to provide the best result.

There are two types of beta testing: private, where only invited users can test the app, and the public, which allows everybody to try the beta version of the software. Regardless of the testing type, it will uncover the bugs and help define which features are missing. After thorough checking, developers fix the problems and - drum roll - the project is ready for launch.

Finally, we are here - at the launch moment. After a long time of hard work, the most awaited phase of building software has come, and your product is released. Our team puts all the efforts to check every single aspect before the launch.

Here at Taknik Bharti Software, we assure to implement all the needed analytics and tracking systems before starting the application to define possible errors and observe the success! Also, you can rely on us 24/7, as we know how the decent support matters while launching the product. However, the launch stage is far not the last one, as it seems to many..

Despite the common opinion, the launch is not where everybody says goodbye and enjoys the process. As every complex system, custom software requires constant overview and maintenance. It will need technical and strategic updates, as your customer demands will change with time. For excellent operating, the software needs adjustments and administration.


The basic level of maintenance involves:

Error monitoring and bug fixing: Regardless of how good the code is, and how many times the app was tested, in the real world things are different. Essentially, the more users start utilizing the software, the more errors can be uncovered and corrected. To find and fix bugs, we use BugSnag, and New Relic and Skylight - for performance overview.

Dependency management: Applications and software are often connected with different additional systems, like API’s (Application Program Interfaces), that are used for payment solutions, running social media accounts and for integrating data sources. The apps and software are also often built with the help of open source frameworks like Ruby on Rails, React.js, Angular, Bootstrap, etc.
This means that your app will not function autonomously, as the additional tools will require updates as well.

Performance optimization: Once the app is launched, the number of users will constantly grow, impacting the performance of the app. That’s why performance overview and optimization are essential.

Security: Cyber attacks and ransomware are still a common problem in a digital world, and hackers are discovering new ways to disrupt web applications. Security is extremely important, and we provide security monitoring and maintenance agreements, adjusted to the type of your application.
