The argument has long been that the ideal startup team is comprised of a “hacker and a hustler,” that is, a CEO who understands the customer evangelical process necessary to find market fit, and a technologist capable of building the core product. While it is obvious that such a hustler/hacker pair can be wildly successful, most of these pairings don’t turn out like the movies.
The biggest concern people have when hiring a software development agency is uncertainty about reliability when it comes to delivery. Unreliable deliveries cause stops and detours in product roadmaps, leaving product managers struggling to explain why their plans are consistently delayed. Reliable delivery empowers you to set more accurate goals.
We had a software client whose users hated logging in to a coupon app we had built for them. The users could never remember their passwords and so they had login problems. They begged to be authenticated in a different way, without having to log in and remember those complicated passwords.
From our experience of launching dozens of apps here at Radial, we have developed some standards for production-ready apps. This checklist doesn’t take much time to implement at the start of development but will save a world of headache later on and ensure that you have critical metrics for your business.
Ergonomics is the study of people’s efficiency in their working environment. At Radial, we try to create a space into which everyone, our team, or clients, and our visitors, fits comfortably and thrives. We strongly value our staff and believe that ergonomics is not limited to our physical space, but extends to the culture we have worked to develop at our company.
s a web development company, one of our challenges is explaining to prospective customers what it is we do. It’s challenging because even though we live in a high-tech world, most people still don’t understand the powerful technology behind the applications they interact with daily. They hear “web”, they think “websites.” What we do is much more complex than that.
Justin Johnson: I’ve worked as a physical therapist for over a decade. Over that period, I’ve noticed technology increasingly facilitates my daily patient interactions. I turn to apps to look up medications, rare diseases, and durable medical equipment for patients. I’ve used just about every Electronic Medical Record (EMR) out there.
Here at Radial, we have developed several communication strategies to ensure that our clients’ products ship on time and meet their business needs. We are sharing them so you can learn how we communicate.
At Radial Development Group, we build a wide range of software applications. But even varied projects often have similar technical issues. One common customer request is the ability to upload lots of data to an app at once using a CSV file.
Radial recently created an application for the Loveland Museum. It’s an iPad game that teaches students how to correctly address an envelope. As a company, we decided to donate the work involved in building this application as a service to our community.
ustom software is very exciting. The possibilities are almost limitless, and you can build something that may become core to your business or your brand.
It’s not news that women in tech often suffer from a lack of confidence. It’s also no surprise that a lack of confidence translates into worse outcomes for women. This could range from lower pay to fewer promotions.
Figuring out client priorities is a key part of application development. It’s not an easy task. Here at Radial we’ve developed a web application to help us do this better.
Here at Radial, we work hard to maintain a strong company culture, focused on our core values. Culture is so important to us that we sometimes say we are a culture company, not a software company (more on that soon). We want everything that happens within our office to reflect our core values.
