Custom Development
Our Approach

The success of application development projects is attributed to its staff and strict project methodologies. It is this methodology that assures a match of resulting features and functions with your business needs.


We start by focusing on your business needs, defining solutions that ergonomically integrate software with existing or newly re-engineered processes. Our business analysts work with you in order to first define the business process and then improve the process by leveraging technology. Throughout this process, HBS analysts and architects develop prototype screens and reports in order to provide a visual means by which the requirements for the system are fully developed. This interactive process provides a solid understanding of the expected custom business software deliverable.

System Design and Build

The HBS system design architects utilize the best-of-breed design patterns and latest design technologies in order to develop the technical design and programming specifications for development. During the design process, an iterative approach to program construction is used. This approach applies an agile development process by which business software components are delivered as features. This shortened delivery cycle allows you to test the software and train users prior to total completion of the product.

System Testing and Implementation

With the business and process flow knowledge, HBS analysts are responsible for testing the application once the developers have completed their testing. This complete system test assures that the functionality and ergonomics of the system have been met. Once fully tested, an implementation and training plan are developed and executed.

Process Control and QA

Over the years, HBS has developed internal standards in order to assure the delivery and quality of our products. We utilize tools to generate formatted code, automated testing and code compliance monitoring. HBS combines a code compliance monitor with a build server assuring that all code is reviewed prior to building new features into the deliverable product. Automated testing assures that previously written code is not compromised due to new enhancements. Alerts are generated should previously tested features no longer work due to changes made to the code.
