How we work
Simplified solutions to complex challenges
Our services are designed to surpass customer expectation. Careful project management methodologies ensure that projects are delivered punctually within budget.
Getting the project started
On receipt of your order, SoftGroup, an Offshore Software Development company, immediately begins to work. We guarantee total confidentiality and support this by providing an NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement), signed by SoftGroup at the outset. Therefore, SoftGroup can be fully trusted with your project ideas!
The Project Proposal
First, as a responsible Offshore Software Development company, we carefully analyze your request and develop a Proposal around it. This Proposal will show a breakdown of the costs and demonstrate how the benefits of outsourcing software development can help your project succeed.

The Project Analysis
Our expert offshore software development team minutely analyzes the project requirement:
- Question and analyze your project outline
- Examine your business goals
- Categorize requirements to simplify technical, functional and operational analysis.
Prior to commencing, it is imperative that long-term project goals are established and we can help with this as part of the overall project or as an independent service.
The Project Scope and Specification
The Project Manager defines the technical and operational scope of the project in an interactive manner so that all your instructions are considered.
We offer clients a design prototype (or mock-up) as well as an interactive simulation of the application to ensure:
- The end product meets your specification.
- You get a clear picture of the end result, enabling you to accept or modify it.
- User feedback is collected from the outset.
- Our development team can gain early insight of the project accuracy to gauge whether the pre-defined milestones and deadlines are on target.
Project Coding and Versioning
Amongst IT outsourcing companies, the first development phase is known as pre-alpha, which describes the initial, incomplete draft version. The next stage is the alpha version, which is near-functionally complete and connected to a server. Lastly, the beta version is ready-to-use with a small amount of non-critical bug-fixing still to be addressed.
Application Testing Stage
We apply systematic Quality Control to our software development services to ensure the highest standards at every stage. We are uncompromising in ensuring that all projects comply with CMMI and ISO 9001 standards.
As the last phase of the development cycle, our offshore software company provides a release version for client evaluation, a process known as user acceptance testing (UAT). Here, we can help clients build a UAT model by combining a mix of client tests and our own test protocols. Finally, the application, accompanied by the relevant technical documentation, is released once all the stages described above are satisfactorily completed.
Application Support and Maintenance
At SoftGroup, of the many offshore software development companies in the marketplace, we take pride in our work, which we support by offering a free six month product warranty. When this free warranty expires, we offer a fully-tailored support agreement per client requirement. Our offshore services are supported by full-blown 24x7 first line service desk cover or a third line telephone support system.
We are an Offshore Software Development company who truly value our customers.
Benefits of Agile
This method advocates adaptive-type planning, evolutionary delivery and development techniques, and an iterative time-boxed approach, all of which create a flexible and swift response to change requests. During the development lifecycle, Agile accommodates foreseen, timely interactions.
