CUSTOM APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT Unique Tools for Unique Business
Cogeian Systems specializes in creating effective custom software that support, extend, and improve your business processes. From internal tools to public eCommerce sites, our business-first methodology will ensure that your most pressing problems are solved with ROI serving as the driving force behind each project.
Your custom software project will be steered through a classic, time-proven 7-step process. Our business-first perspective will allow us to meet with you and quickly learn the important aspects of your business, particularly sources of pain, profit, and cost. The most important aspects of the project will be put down on paper before we proceed, allowing you a chance to review everything before any software development begins. Your feedback is one of the most critical aspects of the project, and everything we do will be designed to communicate with you as a businessperson, not to inundate you with tech-speak.
After we have determined what we are building, design and construction follows. Our project management methods ensure that you will receive regular updates and opportunities to provide feedback. Following construction comes a test deployment, giving you a chance to test your new custom software in a safe environment. When the testing cycle is complete, we will deploy your custom application in a live environment and support you through the process of getting accustomed to your new tool.
Once construction and testing and deployment are complete, we offer both printed and electronic documentation for every custom software application, as well as training for your in-house "super-users" who can then train the remainder of your staff.
Custom Software FAQs
Once I hire you, am I obligated to complete the project?
We try to design our projects so that you are provided an opportunity to opt out after each phase. You will be required to pay only for work done to that point. For example, if you only wanted to hire us to design your application, but not to build it, that would be just fine. In fact, many clients initially commit only to the design phase, then sign up for the actual development once the design is complete and the estimate is as accurate as it can get.
How much will my custom software application cost?
The cost of any project depends on the total scope of the work being done - small projects need small budgets, and large projects need larger budgets. We offer a free 30-minute consultation that may help to put the project in perspective enough to offer an estimate.

Can I add to my custom software later?
Absolutely. Cogeian Systems uses professional-level design that allows applications to change as your business needs change - adding features, subtracting features, and overall changes can be done with minimal risk in most cases.
That planning process sounds expensive - can't you just start writing code immediately?
Industry experience has taught us that the more you invest in planning up-front, the more you save later on with a faster development cycle, fewer errors, and more certainty of meeting deadlines. That said, the key is in planning the right things, not in trying to plan everything. Cogeian Systems is expert in planning the right things.
