Our App Development Process

At Brightec, we work as a team to deliver high-performing apps to our clients. Our app development process is a collaborative effort. We are proud to have a team that always goes the extra mile to deliver great results for our clients. Journey through our app development process and what it involves below:

Client Interviews and Workshops

The beginning of every app development process starts with planning and research. This is where our team delves into understanding the project and what it involves. During this phase, our teams carry out client interviews and workshops to get a clear understanding of project goals, audiences, and timeline.

Beginning every new project with a thorough understanding of the client, their industry, and their users enables us to deliver an app that is purpose-built to serve their business well.

Research and Data Gathering

Using the information gathered during the client interviews and workshops, we analyse competition and industry demand, as well as software requirements and user habits. Data gathering is a crucial step in our app development process and helps refine our strategy moving forward.

UX and UI Design

In this phase, our award-winning app designers work to deliver a seamless and enjoyable user experience. Everything from the aesthetic of the app to its functionality is taken into consideration.

As part of the UX and UI app design process, our designers create wireframes (essentially digital sketches of an app) to showcase an app’s conceptual layout. This helps our clients to understand how the app we develop will look and function.

Code Development

Next, the app is handed over to our development team. Our expert developers write the code the app needs to work as intended. This stage can include back-end, as well as front-end development, depending on the client’s requirements. Good app development ensures that an app works smoothly and intuitively while remaining engaging for users.

User Testing

Everything we do at Brightec is tested by real users. All our apps undergo formal user testing throughout the development process to verify app functions and highlight any user difficulties that need addressing. User testing is an essential part of our app development process as it ensures the apps we build are made for the user to deliver great results.

App Release and Maintenance

Once user testing is complete and the app has undergone final production, it is released to the public. We provide support at release stage and often work on a retainer basis with clients for ongoing maintenance, as well as larger project reiterations. This ensures the apps we release continue to function well and remain up-to-date in a fast-changing digital landscape.
