To telecommunications, financial services and retail industry clients across Europe, Metasite offers full-cycle software applications and platforms development services – from business case development, requirements analysis and product development to ongoing technical support and maintenance.
Over the last 18 years we have accumulated considerable industry-specific experience and have built up a unique knowledge base for development and testing of software applications and platforms for customers operating in the industries we are focused on. This focus enables us to build and deliver high quality results quickly and cost-effectively.
Development of custom software and platforms
When a company needs to automate complex, non-standard processes, out-of-the-box software often just cannot deliver. This is where smart customers turn to us with their custom applications development needs.
We base our solutions on the principles of openness, reliability, maintainability and scalability, and we provide rock-solid support, maintenance and further technical development services to our customers whenever and wherever they need it – in many cases for a decade or longer after the initial launch.
Typical key phases in developing a custom application
- Analysis of business requirements for the new custom application or platform
- Analysis of existing systems and infrastructure
- Selection of an optimal solution to meet key requirements (e.g. functionality and interoperability / usability / cost / implementation time / ease and cost of maintenance)
- Review and optimization of business requirements with the customer
- Prototyping solutions and integrations
- Development and testing of the application or platform
- Implementation of the developed solution for key users, UAT
- Iterative adjustments following user feedback and UAT
- Gradual roll-out to new users
- Formal launch
Benefits brought by a custom software solution
- Optimal operation: the software adapts to the company’s business practices, not vice versa
- Lower cost of implementing complex or unusual business requirements
- Retention of company’s accumulated experience and know-how in workflows and business processes
- Often – quite counterintuitively – shorter time-to-value compared to expensive off-the-shelf products requiring time-consuming customization and integration
