Software Development for Startups and SaaS

Looking to build a new startup or SaaS? Let us help you with the most challenging aspect of creating a startup: Developing your software application

Atlas for Startups and SaaS

The most important thing we have to say to startups is this: We get it.

  • We get the fact you have ambitions bigger than your budget. (We visit that territory pretty often, and return intact and invigorated.)
  • We get that you’re exploring uncharted territory. (That’s when things are at their most exciting, even if it’s scary at times.)
  • We get you have milestones you have to meet to attract and retain investment. (It’s good: real world constraints keep projects on track.)
  • We get that your team might still be forming. (And every new face brings new perspectives and skills.)
  • We get that your concept is evolving in line with research. (And it should – don’t pin something down just because you’re the one who came up with the initial idea, or out of respect for the person who did.)
  • We get that any number of factors could result in your business pivoting in another direction in line with feedback. (Batten down the hatches and enjoy the ride – these are exciting times.)

We get it because we’ve travelled down the road that you’re currently travelling. (And love revisiting it with customers like you.)

In a number of key respects, we’re at this point in our story – a conventional company – and have been for some time. As such we have faced many of the same issues that are coming your way and weathered them.

Above and beyond that general experience of evolving a business, we have put a couple of software products into the world that have been built by us from raw concepts and ideas, through to the stage of creating a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and with an endless stream of iterations and revisions beyond – they have become commercially successful and well-reviewed apps we have launched, marketed, and continue to support.

The experience of creating Staff Squared and Fundipedia gives us real world hands-on experience of SaaS software development and as such has been a vital part of our corporate journey.

Fellow Travellers

Our history means we are in a privileged position to act in a novel and effective way – think of us not so much as a supplier, but more along the lines of an experienced technical co-founder who doesn’t want a slice of your business. We’ve been there, we’ve done it, and we’re excited to make that journey again working on software development ideas with start-ups likes yours.

More than that, we’ve come up with a one-of-a-kind approach to such collaborations that we call TaaS – Team as a Service. It’s proving to be a real success for companies facing your kinds of challenges as regards financing and the software development process – you can read about the details of what’s involved with Ongoing Software Development (Team as a Service – TaaS).

The key features?

  • Rapid iteration cycle – we’re working alongside you, identifying and correcting issues as we go.
  • You pay for staff time at a discount.
  • We can provide full hosting, together with support and maintenance.
  • The Intellectal Property (IP) is yours.

You don’t actually need to be a startup to benefit from the Team as a Service approach – we have developed white label products for customers who could clearly see the advantages of having software that functions both as a tool for generating revenue and a stealth marketing asset. In that regard, many companies are only now realising the power of creating software products that have the capacity to act not just as profit hubs, but as ambassadors for their brand.

What we have come up with through collaborating with start-ups and generating our TaaS concept is a uniquely effective methodology for conceiving, building, testing, and iterating software that’s responsive, cost-effective, and embraces the advantages of Agile. If you haven’t already started to consider the advantages that TaaS could offer you and your team, think again. Get yourself a coffee and read it again. We’ll still be here when you’ve finished.

Given our advantages, we’re not at all surprised to get enquiries from a wide range of startup businesses. We would be very happy indeed for you to be one of them – and all it takes to get things started is an initial email or phone call. You can definitely find time for that, we know you can, call us now on +44 (0)800 033 7569 for a free no-obligation consultation.
