Atlas Software Process

Get a deeper understanding of the Atlas software development process and the project lifecycle so you know exactly what you can expect when you partner with us.

1
Enquiry
You can get in touch with us either via email to hello@atlascode.com or fill out our request an estimate form. Either way, we need to understand your vision at a high level so we can position ourselves to be as helpful as possible from day one.

It doesn’t matter if you’re not technical, that’s what we’re here for. Just focus on the business objectives you’d like to achieve and we’ll worry about the rest.

2
Initial discussion
A Director or Senior Manager will respond within one business day to set up a 15-30 minute phone chat. We’re keen to learn more about your business goals and provide you with no obligation advice on how best to move your project forward.

You’re welcome to follow up with any additional questions you may have after this initial discussion. We understand that software projects can seem large and unwieldly and we’re on hand to provide as much guidance as you need during the early stages.

3
Cost and timescale estimates
99 out of 100 customers have two burning questions – how much will it cost, and how long will it take?

While we can’t provide a fixed quote for cost and timescales at this early stage, we can often reference projects similar to yours that we have undertaken as a baseline to provide an estimate. Typically, we’ll provide a best and worst case scenario for cost and timescale rather than a fixed figure.

4
Requirements gathering
There are several ways we carefully inspect and define the technical side of your project, most depend on the scope and your preferred level of involvement. Our most popular approach, Atlas Roadmaps takes your project from high level concepts and scribbled down ideas to development ready in one straightforward workshop.

Regardless of the approach you take, we always recommend that you build a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) first. Read more about why and how to create a MVP in our resources section.

Proposal
Following the assessment of your requirements, you can expect to receive a detailed plan that outlines

  • key milestones,
  • costs and timescales,
  • risk mitigation,
  • the tools and technologies that we use to build your solution

Flexible Development
Your project is now in the best position possible to succeed. We’ve identified and mitigated any risks, set down a detailed plan for how we will deliver and now the most exciting part can finally begin.

We believe that communication is essential to deliver the best possible product in the most efficient way. You will be assigned a Project Manager who will build a communication plan customised for you and your team, and provide you with access to our customer portal which gives you real time updates on the progress of your project.

7
Free support and maintenance period
We provide free support for 6 months as part of all new software development builds. Our technical support team is available to you during regular business hours to provide service level agreement driven support and maintenance.

Following this free period, we’ll provide you with a customised support and maintenance plan that meets your particular business needs.

8
Ongoing partnership
We build long-term relationships with our customers and work as their technology partners for several years in most cases. Our flexible solutions are designed to ensure we continue to meet your ever-changing needs and also help bring new opportunities for growth to your business.
