Software development project failure

There are many reasons a software development project may fail, sometimes its difficult to identify the exact cause. We understand that your priority is to complete the project as quickly as possible, in order to protect the investment you have already made and to deliver the solution that you require.

Our team is comprised of developers, project managers, consultants and quality engineers, all of whom are committed to understanding your requirements, identifying what stage your project is at and how to drive it to completion.

We understand how significant each project is to a business and we respect the importance of the investment made. We work closely with our customers at all stages to ensure we restore faith in the project and achieve the customer vision.

Types of project rescue

There are multiple types of project rescue, the main ones being:
  • Project review
    A project may be running behind schedule or you may be starting to have concerns and in need of a second opinion. It may need an independent review to identify any issues and suggest remediation options.
  • Project assistance
    The existing development team or partner may be short on time or skills and need help from an external partner to complete a project successfully.
  • Full project rescue
    The project is failing and a new development partner is needed to rescue to project by addressing issues, getting back on track and following through to completion.

Our project rescue approach

In our experience, most of the causes of project failure are due to poor communication, lack of skills, poor planning or issues with expectation management. KLOC uses the knowledge and experience gained from decades in the industry to develop an approach which means we do not encounter these issues, and we can work to rectify these issues if they have already arisen in a project.
Our approach varies depending on the nature of the project and the stage at which we become involved. Typically, we start by working closely with each customer to understand all aspects of their requirements. This ensures we both know exactly what is needed and when it has to be delivered. As part of this, we document use cases and user stories and produce workflow diagrams. Once we fully understand the requirements, we plan how to achieve an optimal solution that will satisfy this and deliver the most value for the business. During this phase we will produce screen maps, wireframes and other diagrams that that will help the customer understand how the solution will look and behave.
We schedule weekly progress meetings and make the new software available to view throughout the development so that you can see it grow. Once the solution has been completed and signed off, we go through full acceptance testing procedures with the client. Once the solution is built, we work together to launch it and then provide ongoing support and maintenance. This gives our customers confidence and security, while guaranteeing ongoing satisfaction.


We chose KLOC to create an incredibly complex and innovative website. The team at KLOC were professional and helpful at all times and we would recommend them wholeheartedly.

We selected KLOC to build and run multiple Fitbit challenge websites for their ability to handle the significant technical integration requirements of our projects, respect our specific needs in the processing of personal data, and to deliver on time. We have not been disappointed – KLOC has delivered every time. Each one of our challenge projects has been a success and we continue to use KLOC to build further integrated sites

The construction industry is seen as behind other industries in terms of the use of technology. We knew we had to move away from old paper processes to an efficient, paperless approach that integrated into our current software systems. KLOC helped bring all our plans and ideas for the app to life and delivered a truly game-changing solution to the issues we were facing. We are already filling positions quicker and more efficiently and can see this app benefitting the whole industry throughout the UK.

We have partnered with KLOC on several projects where we sought their web and software development expertise. The experience has been consistent, professional, diligent and the team demonstrate a genuine commitment to go the extra mile. They are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing to work with them as our development partner.

KLOC worked closely with me to fully understand the operational processes of Deeland Limited’s franchise business and it’s specific needs. KLOC made proposals to improve various aspects as we moved through the project. They were able to analyse the business processes that were needed by Deeland Limited to form part of their database and quickly transformed the database computer screen to a very professional layout and, importantly, easy to use computer programme.

Deeland Limited
We are so pleased with the new website developed by KLOC. It is really important to us that we offer the best possible experience for our customers and the new site delivers. Customers are able to easily navigate the site and complete their booking while we also have all the security measures we need in place. It has allowed us to improve the service we provide to our customers.
