We’re driving application development and engineering to the nth degree.
CoreMind has successfully undertaken complex software development projects in the past and this business segment is now a strategic driver of our growth.
Because we love what we do, our overall philosophy is to only take on projects where we can genuinely add value to your business. Our approach to software development is unconventional. We are most excited by work that transforms the way business is done and where you don’t yet have a firm spec and are open to ideas. We act as your partner to realise your vision and can contribute our own innovation to this process.
Our key software development capabilities:
We specialise in bespoke application development where our clients are trying to achieve genuinely innovative or transformational business process change. All our projects are implemented using our custom hybrid Agile process, which takes the best bits of Agile and Waterfall methodologies to maintain innovation and adaptiveness to change, whilst also ensuring overall project value and budget predictability. Technically, we prefer to deliver projects leveraging open-source technologies and cloud-based systems.
Whilst we have customers across a wide range of industry sectors, we target our software development expertise for startups, not-for-profit organisations and educational institutions.
We are experts in three main areas:
Online marketplaces and transformative business models, typically run by disruptive startups (AirBNB is an example) or internal entrepreneurship programs
Educational tools, such as the eSmart Digital Licence
Business process and workflow systems such as custom CRM, HelpDesk, Project Management or Communication systems
Experience the CoreMind difference
As a result of our collaborative software development methodology, stakeholders are more engaged with the project, quality outcomes are more certain and the overall development is more flexible and adaptable to feedback from you – our client.
Communications and engagement
We know that developing the application is just part of a successful project. Ensuring user acceptance and management support for the new system requires communications skills and stakeholder engagement.
We only take on development projects we are genuinely excited about. We aren’t desperate for the work, so you can trust that we will only take it on if we think there is genuine win-win and a level of mutual excitement about what we can achieve. As part of this, we will be brutally honest – honest about what we think of your idea, honest about what it will cost and, in particular, honest about how to make projects succeed and keep costs manageable – “standard” business processes like RFPs, for instance, are not only a way to waste everybody’s time, but also pretty much guarantee you kill all innovation. Similarly for fixed-price bids: you’ll be paying a (often significant) risk margin and setting up an us-vs-them argument about scope. Despite your best lawyers, as a rule, the client loses in this – whether through accepting unanticipated extra fees, having to reduce scope or simply through extended delays.
Open source specialists
You’ll benefit from our specialisation in open source software by reduced licensing costs and programming fees. We know businesses can do amazing things without prohibitive licensing fees or ongoing costs, and often with less hardware as well! Just ask us and we’ll show you.
Efficient and faster delivery
Based on actual results from a recent software development project in the non-profit sector, our proven methodology can deliver outcomes such as:
• Faster development time
• Reduced management effort required
• Ongoing cost reduction through more efficient management of infrastructure
