What Our Customers Are Saying…
Don’t take our word for it. Listen to what our customers are saying…
“Our Services organization is scaling quickly and we urgently needed a custom software application to automate our workflows, without breaking our annual budget. CodeStringers was the perfect fit, supporting us from ideation through go-live and everything in between. They innovated, hit their deadlines and released an amazingly high quality application that decreases our internal costs and improves our reputation with our customers. It would not have happened without CodeStringers.”
Lori Oakley, EVP of Services and Training, Master Control
“CodeStringers is the perfect outsourcer to call If you have a solid software business idea but don’t know exactly how to bring it to life. They have both a top-notch development team as well as an executive staff with expertise in marketing, finance, and general business acumen. So they can not only build a product for you but they can make sure that the product you want to build is likely to succeed in the marketplace. If it wasn’t for them I probably would have spent a lot of money building the wrong thing.”
Christian Schraga, CEO, Tabula Learning
“Vitil Solutions has been providing help desk services for decades. We have a unique process that helps our customers systematically decrease costs by decreasing the number of reported issues. We’ve used every trouble ticketing application imaginable and none of them fit our needs. So, we decided to build our own. We prototyped internally, but our effort fell well short of a releasable product. With CodeStringers, we built a scalable application – KnowledgeDesk – that we not only use internally but has now become a product offering we sell to other firms.”
Dale Ott, President of Vitil Solutions, Maker of KnowledgeDesk
“As we ventured down the path of building the MindTRAK Golf platform we quickly realized how fortunate we were to engage with Michael and his team at CodeStringers. From forethought to wireframe, creative concepts, to practical user experience and those unforeseen problems that surface from time to time, CodeStringers was there to deal and resolve every critical issue quickly. CodeStringers was more than a web developer for us, they added value to MindTRAK Golf.”
Dick Zokol, CEO, MindTRAK Golf
Some outsourcing firms claim to do everything well. We’re specialists in outsourced product development. You have a vision. We have the expertise, experience, and proven process to translate your vision into a high-quality software product.
Both hardware, software and combined startups have realized their “minimum viable product (MVP)“ and beyond by working with CodeStringers. Our unique focus on high quality with offshore cost enables those firms to get to market at a far lower cost than in-house personnel and do so without building “throw away“ technology.
Growth-Stage Technology Firms
Growth-stages technology firms often find challenges both in recruiting A+ talent as well as cost-effectively delivering software capabilities that not considered intellectual property but are critical to the success of their business. Whether it be porting a mobile application to a new device platform or building mission-critical software functionality, CodeStringers has helped growth-stage companies maintain and accelerate their growth.
Consulting & Services Firms
CodeStringers has helped consulting and professional services organizations realize their business vision by defining and building web and mobile applications that better support their business than off-the-shelf software and, often, create new revenue streams by marketing the software as a new product offering.
Onshore Leadership, Offshore Budget
CodeStringers is headquartered on the west coast of the United States with offices in Portland, Oregon; Santa Cruz, California, and New York City where our leadership, who manage all client engagements, live and work. We proudly develop our software from our offshore development organization located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Unlike some firms that will claim to have an offshore team when in fact it’s merely a collection of contractors, our Vietnam entity is a wholly-owned subsidiary employing 50+ full-time product managers, user experience and interface designers, software engineers and quality assurance engineers. We remain “boutique” to enable our US leadership to engage with clients and personnel in Vietnam to deliver world-class software at a fraction of the cost of in-house teams.
CodeStringers has built more than 50 enterprise and mobile cloud applications for customers of all sizes. We’ve tuned our agile development methods – Scrum and Kanban – to maximize team velocity, delivery superior quality, and enable the iteration that great software requires.
Understand your problems and needs through a series of workshops with stakeholders who articulate requirements and their value
Draft user stories (feature requirements), wireframe (low fidelity screen designs), evaluate user journeys, and style user interfaces
Select technologies, design architecture, estimate effort and duration, recommend team structure, and establish a budget
Build the application services and clients including database, API/web services, web and mobile client applications using agile methodology (Scrum or Kanban)
Configure production environment, deploy application, host and manage, and rollout to the organization and/or end-customers
Great software is the result of iteration based on user feedback and expanding and improving functionality and experience
