How does custom software development work?
knit uses best practices in software engineering like Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Deployment (CD), and a modern development pipeline to build custom software.
Here’s an example:
Recently, we worked with an environmental organization to develop a web application they could use to share data with funders, scientists, and other stakeholders. The organization needed a custom web app because no search engine or shared database existed for distributing their conservation research.
In our initial meetings, we learned about the organization’s requirements for the web app, including:
- The categories and types of data which need to be stored
- The types of queries users need to run
- Filters users need to narrow down relevant information
- The types of maps, charts, and graphs needed to display data
After creating the initial web application, we used the client’s feedback to make modifications and publish the final version.By creating a custom web application,
- Our client is able to automatically make research available for all their stakeholders.
- The organization’s staff saves immeasurable time that would have been required to provide requested information from the 2,600 stakeholders per month who use the application.
- The transparency provided through the web app helps the organization obtain new contracts as they build trust with federal, state, and local government agencies.
