You want to have a software or app developed: for sale, as a small gimmick on your website, as free app for customers, …
But alas, you’re not a programmer yourself. And thus the outcome really depends on whether your programmer „gets“ what you want – and can turn your ideas into a working software.
I’d love to help you with that!
I take over for you
I can help you in all the steps along the way:
- writing software specifications
- communicating with programmers
- organizing and managing all stages of development
- and last but not least: testing your software
… either as whole, or just certain steps – wherever you need help.
A software engineer doesn’t think like you.
But the greatest idea for a software is useless if the implementation misses the mark.
I translate between you and your developers and make sure your ideas become reality – as painlessly as possible.
I help you decide which features are really important, and which features would cost you more than they are worth.
I take care of usability and all the other things which turn a software or app from „nice“ into „wow“.
And through rigorous and and thorough testing, I make sure that everything really works at the end.
With me on your side, you won’t just get to your dream software faster and much more relaxed, you’ll also save the money which you’d otherwise pay for misunderstandings or mistakes.
I’ve got a Dr.-Ing. in Computer Science (that’s a Ph.D. with focus on Engineering, in case you’re wondering), and I’ve also got more than 10 years experience in software development and management…
… in small teams and with freelance developers
… with a variety of tools for efficient online collaboration and software development
… with programmers from all over the world
… with different programming languages and environments
What’s important to me
Software shouldn’t just look great (well, that, too).
It should also be user-friendly. It should contain all the important features, but not be blown up with useless functionaliy.
Important things need to be considered during development and even before: your budget and the future pricing, expandability, potential support cost and much more.
And the full development cycle (up to the often overlooked „trifles“ like writing the manual) should stay within your financial and time budget – and should be as painless as possible for everybody involved.
I make sure these things are taken care of.
