While tech startups get most of the fanfare (and investment dollars), when it comes to new software development the truth is that small, medium and large businesses are leveraging new software to drive revenue and profit in countless ways. Manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, energy, financial services, real estate, retail and virtually every other industry is investing in new software solutions to produce revenue, cut costs, automate and eliminate manual processes, provide information, etc. Gartner estimates the internet of things (IOT) will drive nearly $2 trillion in both consumer and business application investments in the coming years.
The question used to be buy (if you can) versus build (if you must). There are still many unique software needs where a “build” approach is appropriate. However, with cloud based Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (Saas) architectures, the approach now is typically connect, leverage services, and extend through customizations.
Not a day goes by when we aren’t impressed by the vision and ideas we hear about from a wide array of Denver companies when it comes to new software applications. Brainspire listens to our client’s goals and provides custom software development solutions to make these ideas a reality. Leveraging our Brainspire Development Framework which is based on the Agile Methodology, emerging Software as a Service offering, and enterprise grade software development languages and tools, we build new web based software applications that meet our client’s exact needs. While each software solution we provide may require unique and new development tools, the common languages, tools, frameworks, databases, and approaches we use includes:
A growing trucking and logistics company approached Brainspire with an interesting new software application idea. The company delivers and installs more than 300 appliances across a 3 state region. Each day they were manually planning what appliances to put on what truck and what routes to take. They felt they could be more efficient, reduce their fleet size and significantly reduce their fuel costs through automation. Brainspire analyzed their needs, designed, developed, deployed and trained their organization on a new fleet logistics system. At a high level, the new software solution leveraged their current database of delivery addresses, Bing Maps, a complex algorithm that accounted for the working hours in a day, appliance volume and truck capacity, and the Microsoft development stack. The end result was a cost savings of over $200,000 in the first year. The solution has since been enhanced with new features to meet additional business needs.
Brainspire Solutions creates full stack custom software applications that perfectly match your company’s needs. 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.
Brainspire’s business intelligence consultants work onsite with our customers to understand exactly what questions you have and what answers you are looking for. The best and fastest way to understand your needs and provide solutions is to be “in” your business, bridging the gap between your business goals and your technical systems and raw data. Seldom does the “canned” report provide the detailed insight decision makers 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Brainspire Solutions develops all software solutions leveraging industry standard best practices. This includes proven techniques to secure all applications and data. When we engage with each client we are fully aware that their business is at stake and realize the trust and expectations that are placed on our consultants when it comes to developing secure software applications.
