Our approach

We have used our knowledge and experience to develop a six-step approach that we follow on all bespoke projects. Our aim is to reduce the perceived risks and build relationships on a strong base of trust and understanding. We involve the customer in all phases of the project and sign off each stage to make sure that they are completely happy with the final outcome.

1Discover

We start all projects by working closely with our customers on a discovery exercise to understand all aspects of their requirements. This ensures we both know exactly what is needed and when it will be delivered, as well as allowing us to give the most accurate price for the project.

2Plan

Once we have all the information we need, we create a detailed project plan details about the proposed solution and project approach. Each customer has a designated team including a Project Manager, UX and graphic designers (if required), as many developers as necessary to build the application within the timescales, QA engineers and an Account Manager. We organise weekly status meetings to make sure our customers are involved at every stage and aware of our progress.

3Create

Once the project plan has been agreed, we move on to the design and build of the application. The project team remain in close contact throughout the design and build process so customers are always informed and can see how it develops. Once the app has been created and signed off, we go through full quality checking and testing procedures.

4Launch

Once your app is ready, we will assist you in selecting the best mechanism to distribute the app to your intended target audience/user base and get you to the point where your app is ready to launch. We then offer our full support to launch the application, ensuring it happens as smoothly as possible.

5Support

The KLOC experience doesn’t end when the application is launched, we offer staff training as well as ongoing support and maintenance to ensure continued satisfaction. We provide maintenance contracts with SLA’s for response time and prioritisation of issues or we can just work from task to task as needed.

6Evolve

We know that business needs change over time, so we remain on hand to help with the evolution of the applications we develop. If new features or capabilities are needed, KLOC will be there to assist.
