Supply Chain Software Development Process
Rapid Application Development Model
Unlike manually-coded software, Watkyn delivers supply chain management development on our customer’s timetables. Whether your business needs to launch a new product in a week or if your enterprise has time for project planning, we work according to your time constraints.
Here are our supply chain management software delivery options:
Express Application Development (1 Week or less)
This option is for organizations with an acute need for an application or with time-restricted SCM development issues that need to be solved ASAP. With this option, we clear our calendars and devote all our time and resources toward developing a functional supply chain management software application that solves your business’s problems.
For a flat per diem, we will work with you for up to 10 hours a day. In order to complete the task efficiently and at cost, we recommend our customers take every opportunity to work closely with us for as long as it takes. In our experience, a fully functional and quality application can be built in as little as two days with the right amount of dedication and focus.
– Express application development is only available to customers who meet specific requirements and when our schedule allows it.
Rapid Application Development (2 - 8 Weeks)
If you need a custom supply chain or warehouse management application fast, but not within a week, Watkyn recommends our rapid application development option.Rapid application development can be completed in as little as two weeks but can be extended to roughly eight weeks, depending on the circumstances and the complexity of the custom supply chain management application.
Here are some features of the rapid application development option:
- We start right away on the basics of the application, even if you aren’t quite sure of the specifications.
- You receive a weekly demo of the SCM software to track its progress and test its functionality.
- Our “build as we go” methodology helps us deliver responsive, well-tested products that exceed customer expectations.
- Costs less than the express application development.
Collaborative App Development (4+ Weeks)
The collaborative app software development option is best suited to organizations that plan to take over the continued maintenance and development of the application after we get it launched. This option takes more time but has the added benefit of hands-on education and guided practice for your employees to make the custom supply chain software their own.
