Regardless of whether it is a technology start-up, or an emerging restaurant chain looking to harness technology
to automate part of its business processes, any fledgling company is always in need of more assistance
and more care than a well-established potential customer.
INSART’s experts have a good practical grasp of a broad array of software development methodologies and approaches, including SCRUM, RUP, Waterfall, CMMI, and more, and always make sure the selected methodology or approach suits the project at hand best.
Whenever expedient, we try to use SCRUM to create a potentially shippable product and enable the client to suggest amendments and modifications they may see it fit to introduce after the the bulk of the development phase is completed. To ensure uniformity and avoid ambiguity in communication, we use PMBOK.
The average number of employees we assign to a project is 7, and they are always lead by a Project Manager or Technical Team Leader. During the initial stage, INSART’s interactions with the client are handled by the company’s Chief Executive Officer and Business Development Managers.
After the start of the project, the bulk of the communication is handled by the Project Manager. However, whenever you need, you are always welcome to discuss general issues with INSART’s CEO.
