R and D Philosophy: Our approach to software development
- Software development cycle: Being a tools company who creates software for
developers, we thoroughly understand the software development cycle and share the benefits
of this understanding with our customers.
- Buy as you grow pricing: Our products allow you the flexibility,
modularity, and initial investment affordability that normal business growth requires.
Because the web is useful for such a wide range of business problems, no matter where
you start your development you will undoubtedly add
modules, and you will want a solution that not only supports this but increases your payoff for
modular thinking. Start small and then add modules as you skills,
confidence, bandwidth, and the level of connectivity of your end users increases.
We design our tools without limitations to the number of modules, and the architecture and vision
of the products support this modular approach.
- Frequent releases: Software development is a process that continually generates
improvements. We know that you need updates
and enhancements on a regular basis to do your business, so we provide
free electronic downloads under an annual subscription plan.
- Object-oriented development: We firmly believe in object-oriented
component-based technology, and use our own tools for creating every aspect of our own
web sites including tech support, customer service, online ordering, credit card charging and
electronic order delivery.
