Product DevelopmentExtensive Experience in Product Development

Our software development partners specialize in Microsoft technologies as well as many other technologies. Our developers are skilled in the full product development life-cycle, from initial concept and research, through design, development, and testing, to deployment and ongoing support. We understand software development from the inside out—and we leverage that expertise to help other software companies develop their own products. We got our start in the 1980s, developing an ERP and financial software for the Japanese educational market—software that today is the most widely used educational ERP system in all of Japan. Based from the start on Microsoft technology, it is currently a .NET Smart Client solution with a Web services-based architecture.

We also build, sell, and support advanced developer tools based on Microsoft technologies. Over the years, we’ve upgraded them from COM (Component Object Model) to .NET to SaaS (Software as a Service), to take advantage of the latest technological breakthroughs.

Long-Time Microsoft Partner

Our partner has been a part of the Microsoft Early Technology Adopter Partnership (TAP) program since the early 1980s. We are an active Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and Preferred Solution Provider, and we maintain a dedicated R&D team on Microsoft technologies. Microsoft has recognized our technological leadership on numerous occasions, inviting us to give presentations at events such as DevDays, TechEd, and the Professional Developer Conference, and to conduct MSDN online events on emerging Microsoft technologies. Microsoft has also recognized us with numerous awards, including Best Small and Medium Enterprise Solution, Best Financial Products Solution, Best Asia Pacific Microsoft Commerce Server Solution, and Best Asia Pacific eCommerce Solution.

Product Development Life Cycle

We understand the demands of a dynamic economy and the need for companies to quickly adapt and change directions midstream.

Product Inception

The product development services are tailored to help both start-ups as well as established companies. We can take your product from conception through implementation, or we can strategically partner with your development teams to accelerate your go-to-market time. Our project planning teams will work with you to assess where you are in terms of your product development life-cycle, and conduct a gap analysis to recommend a best-case approach that fits your specific goals. If you are considering having your own offshore subsidiary, we can facilitate your transition by setting up a managed Offshore Development Center as the first step.  The BOT model (Build Operate Transfer) is a great way to leverage our core competencies, while ultimately owning your future.

Research & Development

Our program management and development teams use an agile combination of an iterative software development approach and top-down product planning practices, supported by rapid prototyping. This approach successfully translates your vision into working software, in order to mitigate risks and keep the focus on your business goals.

Quality Assurance & Testing

We are dedicated to quality assurance and our testing team is fully versed in cross platform requirements and testing procedures. We provide comprehensive testing, including unit and integration testing, to verify that all application requirements are being met.  Please see our Testing Page.
