Under the Umbrella: Custom Software Solutions Blog

There's a saying we like to kick around the office, "always write code like the person maintaining it after you is a homicidal psychopath that knows where you live." Basically, it means write clean code. There are many reasons writing clean code is important, but Technical Debt is probably at the top of that list. While Technical Debt is a topic that is not widely known outside of the software development industry, it's one that can have far reaching effects. 
Do you remember the last time you got test results from your doctor? Do you remember exactly what they said?  Would you be able to dictate that information to another doctor if you had to? Whether during an emergency or a regular checkup,  DocStuff can take care of that for you. Offered by Eperture, DocStuff is "a revolutionary new concept for individuals to have all their medical tests and records with them anywhere in the world" by allowing users to store and share their personal health care data via a secure, mobile application. In case of an emergency, having access to accurate and up-to-date medical data can be imperative to saving a life.

Technological changes move at a lightning's pace; that includes the coding languages we write in and the tools we use to develop software. We know that training is key to staying up to date in the fast paced world of technological development. Our Developers train...

Lose weight and save more money; if you asked someone to name three things that they want, you can bet that one, if not both of these would be on the list. It's pretty much what we did for SANESolution with application program interface optimization.
Devin Chappell is all about the quality code. As a Full Stack Developer at Inverse-Square, most of Devin's days are made up of solid programming which as far as he is concerned, is pretty great. Give him a chilled, laid back environment, and Devin is quite content to code all day long. Luckily for him and us, Devin finds the vibe at the Inverse-Square office perfect in that capacity. And when he goes home, sometimes he even works on his own programming projects.
You know that phrase, new year, new you? Well, what about, new year, better business? Haven't heard that one have you?  We can help you make that happen. If you really want your business to grow, first off, you need to ask yourself, "will our processes support the growth?" Because as much as growth is the goal of any business, expansion and success can lead to operational challenges that can in turn hinder that growth.  Next, we suggest you review these five steps to help you increase productivity:
Networking - some people love it, some people hate it. Right now, we love it because it brought us this guy. Meet Patrick, Team Awesome's Business Analyst. Thanks to a networking event and his wife, Patrick ended up meeting Bob Baird and as Patrick puts it, "two Reuben sandwiches and one huge industry jump later, here I am!"
Canterbury Investment Management is an investment advisory firm specializing in Exchange-Traded Funds. Their mission is to "provide a strategy that produces the stability needed to achieve long-term risk-adjusted growth through compounded returns." As you can imagine, achieving a mission like that requires collecting, managing, and analyzing a mountain of data. They can do that quickly and efficiently with their custom software, the Canterbury Reporting Portal.
I'm not really sure how it happened. I swore off formal process control documents when I left corporate life fifteen years ago, yet here I sit writing a blog post defending the use of Change Requests (CR) forms and actually meaning what I'm saying. I've grown to love CR forms, and I think our clients should too. Ask anyone who's been in a contract relationship how they feel about CR forms and the response is almost unanimous, they love to hate them. The reason is pretty straight forward; they tend to add project cost, slow things down and remove freedom. I used to feel the the same way and then I had to have one too many hard conversations at the end of a web application development project.
While Inverse-Square was founded by Bob Baird, it wasn't a solo effort. From the very beginning, Bob had another developer by his side helping Inverse-Square grow from a two-man team to one of the most successful custom software companies in Indianapolis. We can't celebrate Inverse-Square's fifth anniversary without celebrating Joe Diekhoff.
Since 2011, custom software development firm, Inverse-Square has worked with more than 100 businesses and organizations based in Indiana and over 200 projects for new and existing clients. Although we pride ourselves on being a local Indianapolis company, our custom software is used not only nationwide, but in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. And just as we've grown, so have the companies that we've developed software for. Aided by their Inverse-Square built Property Acquisition System, property management firm Renu has acquired over 10,000 properties worth in excess of $1 billion; and SC Online sales, an online livestock auction house has sold over $17 million worth of livestock through their Online Auction Platform.
Once we have developed a custom web application for an organization, that app has to be hosted somewhere. We work with our clients to help them choose a host that best suits their needs; it can be their own infrastructure, a third party, or our own go-to standard host MS Azure Platform
