The most important part of a project is often the initial research and discovery. At RocketBuild, we refer to this process as “exploration.”
We love the feeling of setting off on a new adventure, learning about opportunities, and defining innovative ways to push through the unknown. During this phase of a project, goals are set, success metrics are determined, audiences are outlined and, most importantly, strong relationships are forged.
Our team excels at research and planning, augmenting our partners’ own in-house resources with our software development expertise. We are pros at getting to the heart of user needs, crafting user stories, and turning insights into technical requirements for designers and developers.
Whether designing a website or developing enterprise software, setting and committing to a strategy is critical. RocketBuild can help our partners plot the most effective course to arrive at desired outcomes.
The “navigation” phase of a project is when maps are plotted, courses are set, and blueprints are drawn up. RocketBuild can be a valuable resource for assisting our partners in the production of user flows, wireframes, sitemaps, and even working prototypes, all of which can be crucial in gaining client buy-in and user feedback early in the project.
Our developers work as a cohesive unit, co-coding and reviewing one another’s work regularly. No piece of code is pushed live that hasn’t been seen by at least one other set of experienced eyes. This means we’re checking one another’s work, making sure we’re commenting the code correctly, keeping up with industry standards, and doing work that is elegant, RESTful, and repeatable. We work in 2-week sprints, which means we’ll often have something to show you at 2-week intervals throughout the project.
Our work isn’t done until we’ve gotten the solution to its final destination. For us, that means handing the work off to our partners to share with their clients.
We are engineers, developers, and builders, but we know it isn’t enough just to build a better rocket. We need to get it into the hands of our partners so they can complete the mission with their clients. It is our goal to make sure that those handoffs go smoothly, and that what our partners present exceeds expectations.
Of course, the technology world isn’t static, and getting the first version out the door is often just the beginning. We help our partners plan a roadmap to maximize their investment and capitalize on user requests and new technologies.
