Custom Web App Development

We all know Disney Land is the happiest place on Earth, and who hasn't heard that joyful cry of, "I'm going to Disney World"! But, here's something we never hear; "I'm going to sit behind a computer and repeatedly enter twelve digit codes until my eyes are blurry!" And for good reason too, who would want to do that?

You've signed your contract with the web application development company, and the developer is actively building your project. Even though you’ve completed the wireframe design process, your input will still be needed, most likely in the form of feedback on changes. However, if your project has kicked off and you haven’t heard from your developer team, you should be worried. This can be an indication that things might not be going according to plan. Stay on guard and work to keep the developer on task and on schedule. Here are some other things that you should expect during the build phase of your application:

Once you and the software developer have decided that a custom application is the best course of action for your business, the software firm will provide you with a budget and demonstrate what they are going to build for you.

The Initial Budget

At this early stage in the process, you should not expect a specific budget, rather a wide range budget.

If you’re considering new software for your business, how do you determine what type is right for you? Should you have custom software developed, should you buy pre-packed software, or possibly stick with what you're doing? The following three steps will guide you towards a successful decision.
A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information (Wikipedia). Now that’s a definition of utopia for your business! However many businesses do not take the steps necessary to establish the workflow practices that will optimize their profits. How about you and your business? Here are some high level thoughts to get you focused on the right strategy.
In 2013, an error on a J.P. Morgan Chase Excel spreadsheet, led to a $6 Billion portfolio loss and $600 Million in fines for the bank. A devastating and expensive outcome for something as simple as a spreadsheet error. Does your business rely on spreadsheets? Like most today, it probably does. And like JP Morgan Chase, your spreadsheets could contain errors without you even realizing it. Studies have shown that 88% of all spreadsheets have errors in them.
Spreadsheets have been your tried and trusted business tool for decades now, but whether you realize it or not, they have their challenges. The reason, spreadsheets don't know when you have entered inaccurate data, and as a result, you may not know it either. Here are five reasons why it might be time for your business to replace spreadsheets with a custom reporting tool.

Entering the Inverse-Square work domain, one might immediately hear music resonating throughout the office or notice several individuals with headphones on. At one time, many Indianapolis software companies restricted the use of personal audio devices during work hours, however, it was soon realized that music may promote working through tasks and even positively affect the productivity of employees. Inverse-Square embraces and encourages their employees to utilize personal audio devices. In our office,  it has been concluded that music is as important as coffee, and if you ask the Inverse-Square team whether music benefits their daily workflow and productivity, the answer would most certainly be "yes".
As I sit here writing this, my broken leg elevated in an uncomfortable recliner, I can’t help but think about unforeseen challenges when it comes to software development. The inconveniences and set-backs of a broken bone can be related to the tribulations of an engagement. As our Senior Application Architect, Jesse Bacon describes, “It is inevitable that an intricate application is bound to have unforeseen challenges. It is ultimately how we prepare to meet these challenges and not necessarily how we react to them.
