Custom Solutions, Consistent Results

Your competitive advantage.

Every organization has a set of unique people and processes that makes them special. Custom software development should help take these processes, refine them, and make them predictable. After all, consistent, predictable processes lead to consistent results. When you have software driving your key processes consistently, it makes it awfully difficult for your competition to keep up.

“That little competitive advantage that you can get with a piece of custom software will take your organization to the next level.”

-Kyle David, CEO

Withstand the Test of Time

While there are tens of thousands of off-the-shelf applications that promise the ability to be customized, nothing will come close to the operational details that can be planned into something you create—and those little details can give you a big advantage. With nearly two decades of experience and not a single orphaned project in the past five years, KDG’s risk-managed development process has withstood the test of time. Featuring full-stack expertise, multi-platform/cloud-based development, and streamlined quality assurance, we provide the factors critical for success starting right from Day One.

What We Offer

The typical makeup of a development team puts project managers, business analysts, and (if you’re really unlucky) a “relationship manager” between you and the people who are doing the actual work, many of whom may or may not be in the same time zone or even on the same continent. Our process is simple. We provide direct access to the people doing the work, who all happen to be our employees in the same time zone. Then we use project management as a facilitator, organizer, and accountability inspector…but not as a barrier to communication.

All applications change. Requirements change, stakeholders change, and even the purpose of the application can change. Developing applications with a focus on maintainability manages the downside risk of change. If you have ever worked with a development team who responded to requirements with, “that’s not the way the system was designed” or “we would have to refactor half of the system,” you have worked without the benefit of planning for maintainability.

Like any other buzzword, the idea of “agile” development is often misused. At KDG, we are not agile. We are practical. We develop projects with an “owner’s mindset” to make sure that we are showing useable progress early and often so that you can feel comfortable with progression and your ability to course correct as necessary. Leave the development methodology to us. If we are doing the job of inspecting deadlines and deliverables, you do not have to.

Custom Software Development Pricing

Custom software development costs can fall into a very wide range for a number of factors. However, it’s very important for any client or potential client to understand that custom software development is not an episodic purchase. More commonly, software projects continue to improve over time, optimizing feature sets and adding new ones as more value is created. As a result, custom software projects can often start as a six month project and turn into a multi-year relationship. Below you will find a representative distribution of the cost of KDG custom software engagements by their project budget.
