Your Business Deserves the Right Solution. But You Don’t Have to Have It All Figured Out
Many custom software developers, particularly near-shore and offshore providers, expect you to hand them a design spec or detailed requirements to implement. That’s not how we operate. CAPSHER expects you to come with knowledge – knowledge of the business, knowledge of the particular part of the business needing help, and access to the people that are living the “problem”. We join your team, learn how you do business, speak your language, and create a strategy and custom design that answers to your specific business needs.
No one knows your business more than you do. We are here to boost your performance. Custom software design is all about finding the right, practical solutions to your specific problems. We find the answers by building a relationship with your business and learning about the real-world issues that need to be addressed.
We Learn What Success Means to You, and Drive to Make it Happen
Our software strategy & design experts will listen to you, help you describe your problem, define success in terms of tangible and measurable goals and criteria, and design a solution that meets the success criteria. We present this information in your language, terminology, and in a form that is relatable to your business. English is our design language. If we can’t explain it back to you simply, then there is no way to turn it into code. We can’t code what we can’t explain — and explain simply.
We anchor our process of custom software development to the exact problems that you and our team identify. This helps us create solutions that are more aligned with your business and that are easily understandable and administrable in your processes and operations. We value communication and cooperation between our teams, and it shows in our end product.
We Focus on How Your Users Get Real Work Done
We start with how you make money and how the problem you are solving is related to this key business driver. Then we talk to end users to understand how they get their job done, how they interact with each other, share information, and what a “job well done” looks like to them. We need to understand these ‘natural workflows’ before trying to create software interactions to improve what they already do day-to-day.
We Design Software That Users Will Like … and Use!
Our consultants have simple guidelines when crafting these interactions for users:
Understand how users get real work done in their day-to-day environment
Build software workflows that give end-users something of value for them
Follow three basic rules: don’t make users think, don’t make them look stupid, and don’t give them more work
Start with a simple, practical interface before trying something novel
