The Development Process That Streamlines California Software

Our development process is tried and tested, ensuring a streamlined and efficient means of building solutions for businesses throughout the area.

Location Step 1


Our development process begins with an in-depth consultation to learn more about your overall vision. For this, we strive to fully understand your project needs and expectations, while also gaining insight into your business. As a California-based software agency, we might even visit your business during this stage to ensure a thorough and collaborative process moving forward.

Location Step 2


After meeting with you to discuss the project, we’ll then set to work researching your market. The research phase of our development process focuses on identifying your customers’ preferences and addressing any regulatory requirements we’ll need to follow. This will allow us to build a solution that rivals your competitors and resonates with your user base.

Location Step 3


During the design phase, we marry usability and functionality with your brand to provide a smooth and appealing overall experience. Our expert team of designers will work closely with you to bring your vision to life, leveraging their innovative skills to create a seamless, one-of-a-kind product that users will enjoy.

Location Step 4


After approving the design, we start the actual development of the project. With our extensive experience and impressive tech stack, we confidently build your application to the highest standards possible, prioritizing the user experience. We’re also sure to follow any industry regulations.

Location Step 5

Quality Assurance

While we iteratively resolve bugs and other issues throughout the course of a project’s development, we also thoroughly test an application after it’s been built. During this stage, our quality assurance team will rigorously test your application, fixing any problems and refining it accordingly. Once all issues have been resolved, we can then prepare for the project’s deployment.

Location Step 6


After your project has proven stable, we will then deploy it to your personal servers, allowing you to have full control of the application. However, our work is hardly done. Because ongoing maintenance is crucial to a project’s long-term success, we offer robust post-release support packages to ensure the solution functions properly throughout its lifecycle.

Do you offer in-person consultations for businesses in California?

Generally speaking, we recommend remote consultations because they allow us to get started on your project right away. However, as we’re headquartered in California, if you’d prefer an in-person consultation, this is something we can discuss.

What local industries does Idea Maker specialize in?

We’ve got our fingers in so many pies that it’s hard to put a name to just one industry in which we specialize. However, with our existing experience in AI and machine learning development, along with the rise of technology across the world, we’d like to think we’re experts in this area.

How do you ensure timely delivery for clients?

To ensure a timely delivery, we follow our carefully refined iterative development process. As a result, we can actively make bug fixes and updates during the development phase, getting your project to market much quicker.

What support and maintenance services do you offer post-launch for businesses?

We offer post-release support options appropriate to your project and requirements. For example, if you simply want us to monitor and maintain uptime, we’re happy to help. If you want comprehensive support, that’s not a problem either.
