How to Xeo
applying agile and lean startup as a strategic development partner
It starts with an idea. That idea blossoms into a product as we discuss how the end customers will interact with it and how it will bring them value. Customer Interviews help refine the critical priorities that the idea needs to solve first and how to pivot toward revenue.
Our favorite clients are experts in their field looking to disrupt that field with new technology. We are experts in technology and are able to build a wide variety of website and mobile application features. Together we dance to find that right balance.
We typically recommend fixed price engagements split in milestones with clear deliverables. Once the scope is agreed and down payment received, we proceed with full requirements and detailed technical design document. We manage the project using Trello so updates and status are a glance away.
We have found it more efficient to start with a theme than a photoshop file. Beautiful, modern themes based on Bootstrap themes are plentiful and affordable. Some clients prefer to bring their own design team and wireframes, or we can create them.
Our typical codebase is built on Laravel 5.7 in PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7 and hosted on AWS. Our native applications connect to this using a REST API. Which is why sometimes a web first strategy is cheaper for MVP builds. Code is always secured in bitbucket or github and uploaded to a staging server for joint review and feedback.
The development process is a joint partnership to test out and feedback on features both new and revised. We have found that in our successful projects, clients are very hands on and provide feedback in 24 hours. Transfer of IP rights occurs after sign off and final payment.
