Software Development

Got an idea for a software project but need someone to build it?

Bought an off-the-shelf package that only does 80% of what you want?

Whatever your needs, Amelo can provide the specialist skills or spare capacity, with clear processes and the freedom of a monthly rolling contract.

Flexibility built in

We embrace change, and accept that while you’ll often start with a goal in mind, even the best thought-through plans may need to change. That’s why our developers focus on responding to change and giving you working software, instead of rigidly following an out-of-date plan.

Flexibility is at the core of our software development process, with just enough planning for fast implementation. With Amelo you can always change software features as we go along, so you get exactly what you need.

Feedback throughout

We immerse ourselves in your business, by inviting an expert from your business to become part of our team. An assembly line manager who shared his experience enabled us to halve the time spent developing a model of the bottling plant. We supported the business need and helped his employer, a major manufacturer, gain a competitive edge.

Your appointed expert becomes our direct point of contact for questions and feedback. In this way - the agile way - you can ask for as many changes as you like, as often as you like.

At any time you can look at what’s going on - and see the project taking shape. We test and review as we go along, and fix anything you don’t like.

Many software development projects fail because they follow a traditional way of working.

The agile way

  • You get full visibility of the development process.
  • You know exactly what you are getting and when.
  • You get regular releases with new features – new versions of the software are constantly available to users.
  • You are able to provide feedback quickly for immediate response.
  • You get to shape the direction of the product with closer collaboration between developers and the business.
  • You can make changes at any point – even late in development.
  • You can make improvements while your existing systems are live, with no disruption to the business.
  • You don’t have to wait until the end to see the value to your business.

Traditional way

  • You must wait until the end to see the product.
  • You need to make formal requests for any changes.
  • Each of your changes leads to a change to the contract.
  • You spend time negotiating a detailed plan of attack, rather than getting started.
  • You don’t realise you are behind schedule until you reach the end.
  • You get as little as possible interaction with the developers with less chance they’re building the right thing or understand business requirements.
  • You don’t get a return on investment until the very end of the project.
  • You may not know what you want until you see it, and by that time, it’ll be too late.

At Amelo we believe the only measurement of success is working software.
