Application Enhancements

Most established organizations have made significant investments in the software that drives their business.  To stay competitive and address market demands, occasionally businesses must add functionality to an existing application or perhaps address performance concerns.  Most times, software enhancements can be accomplished quickly and cost effectively, leveraging the current code base.

With experience in nearly all programming languages, Brainspire is effective in providing short-term assistance to enhance an application by quickly understanding the business need, how the current application is constructed, developing the enhancement, testing the code and rolling out the new features.

For instance, a compounding pharmacy had a secure, customer-facing web application that had been used by physicians across the country for many years to place new drug orders.  To remain compliant with new FDA regulations, the software needed to be updated.  Within 45 days, Brainspire had analyzed the code base, made the necessary enhancements and even improved the performance of the site.   During the project, the customer experienced no disruption to their normal business operations.

Custom Application Development - FAQs

What are the advantages of customized software?

Simply put, customized software solutions are created to work with how the client works. Tailoring software to the specific needs of the client means that the user experience can also be customized, which can lead to increased productivity. Customized software can also be maintained to the client's specifications including security, scalability, and technical support. It's a worthy long-term investment for as long as the client is willing to use the software.

What are the things to consider for using custom development?

Important considerations for using custom software development include the technical needs of the client, the maintenance process for the software, the return on investment and the impact of software use on the client's staff. Here are some important questions to ask: What purpose does the software serve? Who will train users to use the software? How will it make life easier for the software's users? What methodology is involved to balance business and software development goals?

What are the advantages of code refactoring?

Code refactoring is the process of restructuring software code with the purpose of improving its internal structure and non-functional features. Code refactoring cleans up the software's code to make it more efficient and maintainable, which can also improve how the software is implemented. Aspects of software implementation affected by code refactoring includes performance, maintainability, security, interoperability, extensibility, and scalability.

When should you refactor and rewrite?

Deciding to refactor and/or rewrite depends on how much change is required for the software solution to run properly. Refactoring software code means making manageable changes to the software without major overhauls that can slow down its progress. On the other hand, a complete rewrite of software code may change the foundations of the code altogether, which can then accommodate updated development technologies or application languages. The decision to make changes in software depends on factors such as the application, the team's capabilities, and the client's goals for the application and the cost of maintaining the current software versus the cost to rewrite.

What does application development include?

Application development involves the design, construction, and implementation of software applications. The process of development also includes planning, analysis, testing, and support for the application being developed. Depending on the size of the enterprise, it can be done by a single developer or a dedicated team.

Why settle for out of the box software that doesn’t meet your exact needs when you can have a solution the precisely meets how you work. Our consultants drive the process for capturing requirements, providing an estimate, planning, architecture & development and solution delivery.


Data & Business Intelligence

Brainspire’s business intelligence consultants work onsite with our customers to understand exactly what questions you have and what answers you are looking for.

Brainspire will work side by side with you to provide dashboards, reports, and analytics using the latest business intelligence, predictive analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques.


Portals & Website Applications

A company’s website is the world’s window into an organization and should accurately represent the essence of the mission, goals, culture and operations. Not only should it be appealing from a visual standpoint, it needs to function flawlessly from a usability and performance standpoint on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. Quality sites can’t simply function as digital brochures; they must attract visitors and engage new and loyal customers. This holds true for public sites, company intranets and secure extranet portals.


Application Integration

Brainspire develops software solutions to integrate your organization’s internal, standalone applications, and your applications with key external business partners. Growing organizations tend to rely on off-the-shelf software, software as a service (SaaS) and custom built solutions to drive their business – but rarely does the chosen, out of the box, software solution work with other systems within or outside the business. This lack of cohesive integration creates manual processes that are time consuming, error prone and expensive.


Mobile Development

Today, more users access the web through a mobile device than from a laptop or desktop computer. For this reason, it is critical that software applications are efficiently usable from a tablet or a smart phone for today’s workforce. As a custom software development firm, Brainspire leverages a variety of tools to build highly customized applications that function on countless devices. These solutions include native, hybrid and mobile web applications that can be used either when connected or not. Each business use case is unique, and the mobile requirements, and form factors, need to be considered when creating a custom mobile solution.


Cloud Based Software Development

Cloud environments offer the greatest opportunity for modernizing software applications while reducing costs and time to market.  Brainspire Solutions has developed and deployed web applications leveraging AWS, Azure and Google Cloud environments as well as private clouds.  The ability to quickly provision identical Development, Test, Stage and Production environments ensures projects get off to a fast start in secure and scalable environments.  Developing and promoting code within a cloud environment through continuous integration reduces development time and improves quality.
