Our team of expert developers, project managers, and quality assurance engineers can be tailored to solve any software development challenge.
We are committed to building a long-term business relationship built upon trust, communication, and providing the highest level of value for your business.
We’re tied to your needs.
Anyone that’s worked with us before knows we’re obsessed with ROI. This obsession ensures that we’re always staying tied to your needs. We don’t build anything your business doesn’t need. This takes a bit more time upfront – asking lots of questions, interviewing different people, and proposing multiple solutions. But guess what? Our process works. Remember – custom software is expensive…so if it doesn’t work for your business, it really doesn’t matter.
We’re ruthlessly efficient with your budget.
Custom software is expensive and, unfortunately, cost overruns are common in our industry. We see ourselves as stewards of your budget. In fact, we define a scope of work upfront that matches your initial capital. We never promise more scope than your budget can handle…that’s just dishonest. Our approach with your money is simple – we’ll make sure there’s enough capital for a strong first release and then try to squeeze as much value as possible out of that initial budget.
We never outsource or offshore.
We’ve seen first-hand the dilemmas of working with offshore teams. We know how important it is to work with a team you can trust and is easy to work with. We go to great lengths to attract, hire and retain the software talent in the state of North Carolina.
We bring the whole team.
When our clients engage one of our project managers, they benefit from the collective experience, expertise, and creativity of our entire team. If someone on our team encounters a challenge, they have all of our internal and external resources at their disposal to overcome it quickly. Our team isn’t the biggest, but we have a good number of successful projects to back up our talk. You can be sure we know what it takes to consistently deliver successful custom software projects.
We’re insanely easy to work with.
We are committed to be the easiest, most flexible and most convenient team you’ve ever worked with. Our team is local, professional and friendly. We never use complicated tech jargon and we see it as our job to learn about your business, not the other way around. We believe that long-term success is achieved through great relationships.
How can we help you?
When you come to us to talk about your software project, the first thing we do is listen and ask questions. We learn about your business and your project in order to understand your needs and determine whether 2MI Software is a good fit. If we think we can help you, we’ll work with you to develop a preliminary proposal.
The proposal serves as a high-level description of your project and a corresponding time/budget estimate. We use early project requirements, historical data from previous projects, and our expertise to initially estimate cost. At this point, the estimate will have the broadest range. As we learn more about the project, the estimate will be refined. Learn more about our pre-project consulting process.
Research, Design, & Planning
Forget acronyms. We start in English.
Your project starts long before we write any code. Coding focuses on technologies and languages, but preparing for a software project involves the larger process of understanding your business, how you’ll measure ROI, user needs, potential risks and future opportunities. We’ll do this collaboratively – through discussion, sketching out workflows, and deciding on solutions. The best part of all is we don’t require you to learn our language; we communicate in yours.
Once we understand the problem and agree on the right solution, we’ll define the features that support the core application and create an accurate cost and schedule estimate for your software project.
Creating your product
All of our design and development practices are aimed at producing maintainable, extensible, and highly usable software. We begin with the most essential features, so we deliver the most value early-on in the process.
We build your custom software incrementally, one fully-tested and fleshed-out feature at a time, rather than creating many incomplete features all at once. We add new value to the project at each iteration. Our process ensures that software is always well-designed and fully tested.
Release & Support
The first release
You hire us to build custom software in order to make or save money. Until it’s released, software can’t do either. We help you determine the proper hosting, licensing and distribution mechanism for your system. For example, whether it’s internal, shared, dedicated or cloud, our expertise is available to get your software safely deployed and responsibly hosted.
In for the long haul
Whether you’re a startup or have your own technical staff, we’re available for the long-term to maintain and extend your application. The quality of our work means your maintenance costs will be very low. The quality of our company and employees means you can count on us as a long-term partner.
The easy stuff
All of your software project’s artifacts are stored in a version control system. We have a disciplined and tested backup procedure. Our backups are stored both locally and offsite. Our continuous integration servers are always watching your project, building and running all the tests on every change.
