Our Process

Our Process

1

DISCOVERY

Firefly learns about your organization and listens to your needs. We follow with related research, strategy, and solution development. The result is proposed solution, timeline and price.

2

KICKOFF

We initiate the project in a kickoff where we review the proposed solution and the work required. We review deliverables, timelines, deadlines, the project process and key success factors.

3

DESIGN

Depending on the solution, Firefly develops a design concept to present and review for approval. If its a custom app we present interface designs and requirements documentation.

4

Production

In this stage, we take the conceptual work and bring it to life. We produce usable collaterals, websites, ads, logos, billboards, applications, and more depending on the the type of work we’re doing.

5

Review

Once the work is produced, it is thoroughly tested by the Firefly team and the client team to ensure everything works as planned. Adjustments can be made at this time to meet set goals.

6

Launch

Now that the work is complete, we present it to the client’s audience. This includes taking websites live, posting digital products, sending out print collaterals and promoting the launch in various channels.

The Most Important Step

7

Evolve

Your marketing isn’t a static piece of art, it is a living enterprise that should continue to grow. Clients who opt into SEO contracts or other ongoing marketing services will experience the continued evolution of this phase.

Custom Application Development FAQs

What is the difference between off-the-shelf software and custom software?2020-02-14T11:03:04-06:00

Off the shelf software is more cookie-cutter and designed for mass usage by using standard, easy to understand features. With customized software, you can tailor your processes to your specific needs, directing your investment to features that you will need and use.

What are some examples of custom application development?2020-02-14T11:03:44-06:00

Examples of custom application development can be found everywhere, including online patient interfaces, student portals, account management tools for B2B, scheduling tools, volunteer coordination platforms, and more.

What are the advantages of customized software?2020-02-14T11:04:26-06:00

Custom software provides many more solutions other than making your day-to-day easier. With solutions tailored to your specific needs, we are able to increase security over standard applications. With only features that you will use, your application becomes more scalable and provides you with direct support from the development team.

How do I start planning for a new application?2020-02-14T11:05:06-06:00

The best way to start planning for a new software application is by creating a checklist. Collaborate with several members of your team to decide what features and capabilities you need in order to make your processes run smoothly. Once you identify your overarching needs, you can then work prioritize and establish your budget and estimated timelines.

How do I know I’ve outgrown my business software?2020-02-14T11:05:55-06:00

You’ll know it’s time for a new software application when productivity declines, efforts are being duplicated, collaboration is difficult, the existing technology is outdated, or if the existing software capabilities cannot keep up with business growth.
