Commitment to Quality
Being a customer-oriented company, we do our best to make our processes as clear and transparent for you as possible. We adhere to the best industry practices and always commit to deliver a predictable high quality result that you expect from your vendor. We place the major focus on delivering secure, reliable solutions of long-term value that enable our customers to concentrate on their core business objectives.
Comprehensive Service Offering
We have been accumulating best practices, expanding and polishing our technology knowledge and understanding of business processes. Launched separately, our major service lines gradually evolved into a complex systems integration offering, which brings concentrated expertise and synergistic benefits.

We usually suggest splitting the development process into several iterations (stages). Our most common iterative approach includes
- Initial requirements gathering
- Planning and project details specification
- Prototype creation
- Submission of demo versions to your approval
- Comprehensive product testing
- Final version delivery
- Solution implementation, stabilization and user training
Established Development Methodology
Thanks to intensive growth and close collaboration with such technology giants as Microsoft, SAP as well as the leading open source companies, we’ve managed to polish up our best software development and process optimization methodologies. Today we exploit the most effective software development and project management methodologies:
- IBM Rational Unified Process
- Agile (Scrum, FDD, XP)
Depending on project objectives, complexity level and customer specific requirements we select the most suitable methods to deliver faster, cheaper and better results, and provide a sound development process with full control over each development stage.
Inputsoft’s project management policy is aimed to provide maximum transparency to the key project activities and commitments, budgeting, workload planning, and metrics used in the process. We elaborate and communicate a detailed activity plan to every person involved in the project, which will
- define major and minor stages of the process,
- show objectives and deliverables at the end of each stage,
- reflect which processes, methods, techniques and methodologies are to be used,
- display human resources, qualifications that are required,
- assign roles and responsibilities for each team member.
Our Customers receive comprehensive reports that allow evaluating the progress made, and where required, promptly optimizing processes and resources.
Quality Management System
We realize the paramount importance of quality assurance processes. That’s why we engage our independent QA team in product development very early – right after the initial project requirements have been studied. Our ISO 9001:2008 certified Quality Management System ensures full compliance of our software solutions with international quality standards and enables our partners from all over the world to entrust their software development initiatives to Inputsoft and continually benefit from reliable and secure software.
Flexible Engagement Models
Depending on project-specific characteristics, we propose 3 major engagement models:
|Project Specific Characteristics||Engagement Models||Budgeting|
|Project specification, requirements for development processes, deadlines and resources are clearly defined, technical documentation is already available or properly planned.||Fixed Price||Fixed budget and deadline. Inputsoft covers all project risks.|
|Project specification either has insufficient level of detail or doesn’t exist, development processes and deadlines are not yet clear, documentation is unavailable or incomplete.||Time & materials (project budget is measured in man hours)||Project budget is formed on the basis of man hours actually worked, and can be flexibly adjusted to the changing needs for time and resources.|
|Only general idea and requirements to the project are available. Project specification, requirements for development processes, deadlines and resources are still to be estimated, discussed and negotiated.||Dedicated team (project budget is measured in man-months)||You assemble your team of professionals of required qualification, taking full control over project progress and budget scheme.|
