Our Process

Our Process


Our process is iterative - we revisit and re-integrate and re-factor during the software development life cycle. We follow a general linear flow outlined below, but tap each modality frequently, optimizing until we have a production quality product.
We focus on understanding the client's business model, its context; we identify problems and create strategy, plan and problem solve technology solutions and improve performance for the organization. We use industry best practices through our core skill set, design, development and administration in combination with business acumen to bridge the gap and improve business through the use of technology . We have experience across many industries that we perpetually leverage to refine our services. We build long term assets for the organization, we recommend tech solutions, either build / implement part or all of it, work with and train staff in your organization on the implementation.
Blueprints of the software, listing features and functions of the system. The Functional Specification report includes use cases for various users and roles within the context of a particular goal or workflow. For example, user A goes here, does this, creates output B which is then used by user C. The functional spec defines the universe of the software, a detailed breakdown of its functions.
We first develop project life cycle plans and functional specifications, then manage development and creative teams, staff projects, create projects schedules and supervise using tools such as: Pert, Gantt Charts). We collaborate with stakeholders, distill and integrate feedback into project plans and liaise with project members. We tackle contingency planning and agile project management.
From planning to testing we take an iterative approach to development and are continually refining the product to a perfected end state. We work closely with the client, obtaining feedback along the project life cycle from the beginning to the end with the goal of delivering an end product that fits the customers needs, not just meeting the project requirements..
We have numerous criteria we test before launching an application including security, site speed and site functionality. We comb through the application on a staging environment, looking for loose ends, potential exploits and diligently fix bugs. Once the application is production quality ready, we document functionality and train the customer in the use of the software.
Perhaps the most important aspect of the software development life cycle, we train company staff on how to make the most from the software investment. From adding simple content to adding new pages with custom layouts that respect in place style guides, Blue Tundra is on site, on the phone, responding to emails working with staff with the simple goal of sustainability.
Customer Focus

Innovation

Understanding clients objectives before proposing potential solutions is our first step. Our goal is to listen and learn from the client, bringing innovation and problem solving skills to the table and leverage technology; applying it strategically to the project goals creating comparative advantages for the customer.


Create long term IT assets

We take personal responsibility and accountability for timely response to client queries, requests or needs, working to remove obstacles that may impede execution or overall success. We train individuals and groups in use of the applications we build, avoiding over technical jargon, focusing on clarity and maximum ROI for the customer.


Teamwork and Ownership

We collaborate with clients and other project team members and contribute productively to the team's work and output, demonstrating respect for different points of view. We work in small teams with direct communication. We drive for results and take personal ownership in meeting deadlines and achieve agreed-upon results.
