Our discovery phase takes a given project scope or hypothesis, against which we will validate technical drivers using: known best practice; real-life experiences from delivering EPoS systems over the last 20 year period; and an appreciation of the current marketplace demands.
Our design approach focuses on deriving a set of architectural principles which map directly back to the business and technical drivers of the project. The architectural principles in combination with the project scope are then taken forward as the basis for validating the solution design and technology choices.
BUILD AND TEST
Once our technical specification has been signed off, the project will be delivered using agile methodology over 2 or 4 weekly sprints. Regular stakeholder meetings between sprints will be used to get feedback on the build as it progresses.
We offer flexible support options that puts your retail customers first. From subject matter experts required ad-hoc to ongoing service contracts that under-write your mission critical trading platform.
