Agile Custom Software Development Process

We use a flexible hybrid Agile approach refined over 20 years of on-time and in-budget projects

Have you run out of budget before your solution was delivered? Do you have projects that never seem to finish? Do you look at the software delivered by your so called “development partner” and wonder how they got it so wrong? Are you looking for the “Goldilocks” approach to custom software development where your involvement is just right? You need to leverage Solentive’s experience.

We have been delivering successful custom software projects for customers of varying size for over 20 years. During this time, we have seen a lot of change in both technology and delivery methodology. We have found that there is no single development methodology that fits all clients. A flexible approach, tailored to each client and each project is the only approach that works without fail.

It’s all about balance and listening to our clients. This is why we use a flexible hybrid Agile model. The degree of the following must be just right for each project:

  1. Definition of scope/user stories
  2. Development of prototypes
  3. Amount of effort and elapsed time
  4. Involvement of your resources
  5. Rigidity of budget
  6. Management of contingency
  7. Management of change
  8. Length of each sprint
  9. Time of minimal viable product (MVP)

What does this mean for you?

  • We can tailor an approach that is right for your next project
  • We can deliver your next custom software development project on time and in budget
  • Your team will be comfortable with their level of involvement

How we engage with our current clients

jjrichards Commercial Engagement: Time and Materials
Development Methodology: Practical Agile Methodology
Initially we built a system for JJ Richards based on a fixed price basis. Following the deployment of the system, JJ Richards moved to a Time and Materials approach, where the Solentive team is an extension of the internal JJ Richards development team. Through joint elaboration sessions, the Solentive team capture the requirements and deliver iteration based enhancements to the system on an ongoing basis.
Commercial Engagement: Cost Targeting
Development Methodology: Practical Agile Methodology
UNSW Medicine, came to us with a requirement to build a cross platform mobile application on a predetermined budget. The Solentive team worked with UNSW Medicine to prioritise the features of the app to ensure that it fit within the budget. Using this approach, UNSW Medicine was able to deliver an app that provides the most value to the University while meeting their predetermined budget.

"We see Solentive as an extension of our internal team rather than an external vendor. It’s natural for us to involve them in new projects that we are planning." Matthew Schoemaker,
