The science and art of business software development

The science and art of business software development

July 31, 2018 AppWright News

The vast majority of businesses require agile software solutions to keep everything about their operations running smoothly. In 2018, we're experiencing the early days of numerous notable trends in the creation of business software – blockchain, various iterations of artificial intelligence, expansion of the IoT ecosystem and much more, according to The Innovation Enterprise. The complexity of these methodologies, particularly something as intricate as blockchain, is undoubtedly fascinating.

"Business software may use all the hottest new development trends – but is it actually beneficial for workers?"

Yet as a business manager, you have to focus on more basic concerns as well. For example: Is your company's software solution easy for workers to use efficiently, and does it perform reliably? If not, its complexity is wasted and ultimately impedes productivity. What makes the JobCenter business process management platform from AppWright so effective is its merger of complex architecture with ease of use and dependable function that cannot be underestimated.

Development from beginning to end

Our in-house developers at AppWright saw the internet's barely realized potential in 2000, when they got to work on the original JobCenter. Those who follow in their footsteps today echo that boldness by being full-stack developers: This means they work on all aspects of the program's design, from initial database creation to user interface development. Much like an auteur film director, their vision shapes every aspect of the final product. Each feature, from scheduling and job templates to process auditing and line-of-business integration, is within their purview.

This requires no small spectrum of knowledge: SQL, TSQL, C#, HTML, JavaScript, our various proprietary frameworks and more are all involved. Not only that, but our developers are so close to the process that in certain instances, clients can speak to them directly to troubleshoot an issue. Fortunately, such situations are rare, but this is yet another way in which AppWright commits to customer service. 

Reliability above all

A great deal of effort goes into making JobCenter the eminently reliable BPM tool that it is, but excellent raw materials – figuratively speaking – are also important. Developers at AppWright employ a Microsoft software stack for development and deployment to streamline the entire process, so that they can easily move back and forth between all of the build tasks they're handling as necessary. 

This also helps ensure that it's fairly easy for the AppWright dev team to make any macro or micro changes to the platform – because any of our developers will be adept at modifying all aspects of JobCenter. Reducing the competitiveness that can result between separate dev groups is a huge advantage. Last but not least, this stack approach means it's much faster to complete any bug fixes in an emergency. 

A reputation for excellence

The market for BPM software can sometimes be like the Wild West. AppWright JobCenter wouldn't have nearly 20 years of success to its credit if customers didn't appreciate the platform's effectiveness and recommend it to their colleagues – and they've most certainly done both.

Don't solely believe us: Take a look at satisfied clients' testimonials from multiple business verticals to see proof positive of what JobCenter offers today.
