Your perfect application, delivered on time

Taking your first steps on the web or app development process can be daunting. But when you partner with EB Pearls you can relax, knowing you’re in the hands of leading Australian software development specialists. Right from our initial assessment through to strategy, design, development, testing, deployment and ongoing maintenance, we take care of it all.

Here’s a step by step guide to what to expect in your app development process:

Your confidentiality is paramount

It goes without saying that we’ll always help you safeguard your idea with ironclad protection. So we start the process with the signing of a watertight non-disclosure agreement (NDA). We can also help you register your idea, to protect your intellectual property.

Scoping and costing your idea

In our initial consultation, we will discuss the project in detail and work through your concept to outline the opportunities and challenges moving forward. We will also ensure all the proposed features are technologically possible. Once we’ve all agreed that your project is viable, we’ll supply you with a free proposal of cost, timeframes etc. Our proposals are detailed, clearly broken down into the cost of each phase, so that you’re able to make a highly informed decision, right from the start.

Strategy

You’ll find our discovery phase is highly evolved to set you on a winning path. 

  • Comprehensive market analysis including in-depth analysis of target audience, competitor, market size and growth opportunities.
  • Optimal marketing strategy to acquire, convert, retain and nurture your potential customer.
  • Monetisation strategy including your actual mode of charging, price points and timeframes. 
  • Application development strategy to release features that excite users and improves user retention.

UX design

User experience (UX) design is the foundation to any web or mobile app development project. 

  • User flow diagram to outline each and every interaction of the user with the application.
  • Wireframe will provide a visual representation of the entire application screen by screen. It will help you visualise each element in a particular page and how it relates to rest of the application.
  • Rapid prototype will make it easy for you to simulate the application at this early stage. It is also a great presentation tool to gain more traction while the application is in development.
  • User engagement testing will ensure we get the user experience right at this early stage, rather than costly code rewriting at a later stage.

UI design

Next comes the all-important UI, or user interface – the visual aspects of your app. 

  • Develop brand guidelines encompass your application name, logo, vision, mission, icon, fonts, colours and other important assets.
  • Based on the brand guideline, our UI design team will create an initial design concept to showcase the look and feel of the application.
  • Once the design concept has been signed off, we will design the rest of the screens utilising atomic design principles.

Development

The actual building of your project involves developing code and integrating with third-party application.

  • Our team of solution architects are highly experienced and skilled to choose the right technology for your project. Whether its programming language, database or hosting infrastructure – we have the right resources to assist you with any technical requirements.
  • We have delivered every development release on time since 2010, thanks to our meticulous planning procedure, large resource pool and 4-stage quality assurance process.
  • We will conduct face-to-face project review on each version release so that we can collate your feedback and analyse the progress of the project on a regular basis.

Development using SCRUM®

When we reach the stage of actually building your mobile app, it’s vital that all the moving parts come together at the right time. That’s why we use the global leading SCRUM methodology.

scrum
The Sprint

A sprint is a time-boxed period during which specific work is completed and made ready for review. Sprints are usually 2-4 weeks long.

The Daily Stand-up

The Daily Stand-up is a meeting in which each developer covers progress since the last stand-up, planned work before the next meeting and any road-blocks.

The Sprint Review

The Sprint Review is the demonstration of the work completed during the sprint. All parties involved will provide feedback and accept or rejects the work completed.

The Retrospective

The Retrospective is a team meeting in the Sprint to determine what went well, what didn't go well, and how the team can improve in the next Sprint.

Quality assurance

In every phase of the development process, our quality assurance engineer will extensively test the completed features. 

  • Functionality – all features are working as they should
  • Performance – response speed
  • Regression – features working in every phase
  • Device-specific – versatility on different screen sizes and device/combinations
  • User acceptance – getting feedback on every feature from target users 

All tests are repeated and the results reviewed until everything is working perfectly. We can coordinate for the app to be tested by focus groups of target customers. The results will prove invaluable to your refinement process.

Your ideal app development partners

If you’re thinking of starting your app development journey, the whole process can seem almost insurmountable. And it’s true – the app development process certainly isn’t a walk in the park. But in partnership with true professionals like the EB Pearls team it can be a highly rewarding and even lucrative experience. 

Launch

Prior to deployment, we perform the two main processes essential for your mobile app’s launch:

  • Configuring your webserver to meet the needs of your present and future customer base cost-effectively in partnership with cloud-based server providers such as Amazon Web Services and Google App Engine.
  • Submission to the app stores. We carry out all necessary procedures for deploying your app to Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

And since we’re a full-service digital agency, we can also help you with all other app launch essentials, including SEO and copywriting for your app’s store description, contents and website/landing page. Plus a paid advertising campaign on Google, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms.

Post-launch

The world’s most popular apps are continually being updated, and your app will be no different if you want it to remain successful. Our expert EB Pearls development team can take care of all ongoing fixes, assessment and maintenance, including:

  • Round the clock monitoring, including speed performance
  • Comprehensive analytics, to help you make the right decisions for conversions and growth
  • Constant updates, to repair crashes and bug fixes
