From smart customization of pre-developed platforms to full-cycle custom software development consistent with the client’s vision,Highlands is an experienced software development partner that can deliver cost-effective and reliable custom software solutions that match your specific requirements.
You tell us what kind of solution you need, how you want it to run, and which business processes are involved and we will build a solution that fits your needs exactly. Highlands always considers the potential for future business expansion, so your solution will be scalable and flexible enough to be modified later as your business grows or changes.
Already from project launch, you will recognize and appreciate our team’s technology skills, business domain expertise, and smart project management—from initial requirements definition and business process modeling, to user training, solution support, and maintenance.
We usually suggest splitting the entire project into several iterations (well-defined periods of time with fixed goals and deliverables). Such iterative approach has the following advantages:
- Transparency: Each iteration’s delivery is done on time and on budget.
- Reliability: Each delivery is a subject for acceptance procedures to confirm all the requirements have been met.
- Time-to-market: Each delivery contains some of the expected functionality and can be put to use right away.
