implementation starts with a good design process, and
ASC's expertise at this is unsurpassed.
The ability to design software that performs a certain
set of functions is only one component of a successful
solution; to be truly successful, designers must pay
attention to how it will perform, how easy it will be
to use, and to the usability of the data it will provide.
To do this, we and our partners must make sure that
our own industry experts, interface design experts,
and customer relations personnel are fully involved
in the design process.
The software development process is cooperative and
iterative, and in order to successfully implement a
design the customer must enter into this process at
several key stages.
The first stage of customer involvement is in the production
of a technical specification - which is a cooperative
process of development towards a final signed document.
After the specification is settled, ASC produces a series
of increasingly complete "betas". The customer
reviews each beta and provides feedback on how the functionality
and interface meet the specifications. The result is
not only that you receive a well-designed, tested and
proven final product, but also that you now have people
in your own company who are trained and ready to implement
the system throughout your organization.
