Software Development Services Lifecycle

Custom Software Development Solutions

Custom Software Design

More and more businesses are beginning to understand how custom software development can benefit their overall business, improving both internal and external processes and driving value and sales revenue higher. Software is not a ‘one size fits all’ and in many cases a custom application can often be far more productive and provide a better fit within the business environment.

This has been particularly evident with the proliferation of mobile devices, which now enables businesses and their employees to remain connected to backend systems even while out in the field. Having instant access to the latest stock figures and pricing information enables quick decisions to be made and orders to be processed in real time, creating a lasting impression with customers.

These custom applications also provide new capabilities and, by enabling the organisation to connect with employees, customers and partners, they make doing business with them a pleasure in comparison with the competition.

Successful Software Development Solutions

At ERS, one of Ireland’s leading software development service providers, we have been successfully developing custom software applications for more than 15 years across desktop, portal and mobile device platforms, during which time we have forged an exceptional reputation for delivering robust software development solutions ahead of time and within budget.

There is a lot more to the development of effective software applications than merely writing good code. There are many good software programmers across the world but the key limitation is that their expertise lies deep in a coded environment, not within a business environment. Just because a programmer can write good code does not mean they can guarantee an effective application or a positive customer experience.

The key to top-class software development is being able to get inside the mind of your customers, understand exactly what they want and visualise what they are trying to achieve.

It’s about bringing our many years of development experience to the fore and demonstrating that we not only understand our customers’ brief, but that they can depend on us to identify and rectify the gaps in their scope that are preventing them from achieving a successful project.

Successful Software Development

Discovery is key to software development services

Discovery is the Key

Our team’s variety of skillsets have enabled us to deliver the most complex customer solutions that include Web Portal design, Database Middleware design, Web Services, iOS App Design and Android App Design as components of a single project.

They work in programming languages covering C++, C#, .NET, Java, AJAX, REST and SOAP on many different software platforms such as Windows, iOS and Android, along with database platforms including MySQL, MS-SQL and NoSQL.

Before our development team begins to write code, we liaise with the customer in a thorough discovery process which can often incorporate a series of meetings between the project manager and other business stakeholders to identify the full project scope.

Over the course of this process, we utilise visual screen representations explaining how various stakeholders will interact with the final solution. We are happy to invest this comprehensive effort into the process so that stakeholders can identify any aspects which they may have missed.

It also allows for ongoing updating of visuals to incorporate all the necessary functionality. Once completed visuals are signed off, these form the bedrock of the project scope.

From our experience, this process has saved customers six-figure sums of money in potential change requests by helping to pinpoint key functionality that was initially overlooked but is imperative to the success of their project.

Agile software development solutions principles

At ERS, every solution we develop is based on agile design principles with a clear focus on delivering working software.

We encourage the formation of a close relationship from the outset between the development team and the customer, with an emphasis on face-to-face conversations.

Which we have been doing for years as one of the leading software developments companies in Ireland.

As part of the delivery plan, we will have agreed on a number of phased release milestones where the customer can review incremental progress and provide feedback through every stage of the development.

This enables the team to adapt to include any change requests and to maximise the value for the customer. The key objective is to deliver working software at all times and ultimately deliver a successful project on time and within budget.

What others say about our software development company

“…National Lottery Company (NLC) were looking to develop a Point of Sale (POS) portal that would manage the rollout of assets to the various NLC agents throughout Ireland. These assets included signs, visual display equipment, point of sale stands and various other assets. ERS was invited to carry out a discovery session within NLC to establish the exact requirements. This resulted in a detailed scope of work document which identified the various steps of engagement from assignment of the initial instruction, completed installation, remedial work requirements through to invoice submission and approval. Since implementation, the NLC POS Portal has streamlined a critical process within the NLC and radically improved communication with our suppliers. I would highly recommend the ERS development team….”

Ronan HayesDevelopment Manager, National Lottery Company

“…At Cathcart we wanted to launch a website portal to present our range of STIHL, VIKING and HONDA products and to enable our network of dealers in Northern Ireland to place product orders online. A key objective for the dealers was to transform a current manual task into a streamlined online process that would improve communications and reduce delivery times and costs. ERS were chosen to design the new website and portal because of their vast expertise and existing customer base using similar solutions. They designed and deployed our website which included a ‘Content Management System’ (CMS) allowing us to update the site content ourselves and also integrated the online ordering with our back-office accounts system. It was a pleasure to work with the team at ERS and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for similar projects….”

What is the difference between IT services and software services?

IT services encompass a broad range of technology-related activities and solutions that support the operation, management, and optimization of information technology systems and infrastructure. This includes networking, hardware support, cybersecurity, data management, and cloud services, among others.
Software services, on the other hand, are specifically focused on the development, maintenance, and support of software applications. This includes custom software development, SaaS development, application maintenance, and software project management.
The main difference lies in their scope: IT services cover a wider range of technology needs beyond software, including hardware and networking, while software services are specifically concentrated on software products and solutions.

Is software development an IT service?

Yes, software development is considered an IT service, as it falls under the umbrella of information technology services that deal with the creation, maintenance, and management of software applications. It is a subset of IT services that focuses specifically on software components.

Is SaaS a software or service?

SaaS is both a software and a service. It is a model of software delivery where applications are hosted by a service provider and made available to users over the internet, typically on a subscription basis. As software, it refers to the actual applications that users access and use via the cloud. As a service, it encompasses the hosting, maintenance, and ongoing support provided by the SaaS provider, ensuring that the software is available, secure, and up-to-date without requiring users to manage the underlying infrastructure or perform updates themselves.
