How we work
Whole-Systems ThinkingOur holistic mindset focuses on first understanding the nature of WHY situations are the way they are, taking the pulse of the process ecosystem, and how to go about improving.
Lean Product DevelopmentOur Lean approach helps us to continually eliminate waste while building quality in. We do not work on anything that doesn’t add value and we continually seek the balance between speed of delivery and iron-clad quality.
Agile Software DevelopmentOur Agile methodology is tailored for mid-size companies to ensure timely, incremental delivery of items of value. Our clients see working software early and watch it grow in value and potency on a regular schedule.
Hybrid StaffingOur team is your developer. Synap brings a hybrid staffing model tailored to meet your needs not typically able to be addressed with any one resource. This model has many of the benefits of having an in-house developer but alleviates the challenges of having to hire and retain your talent. With a full-time employee you’re limited to their weekly hours, whether that is occasionally too high or too low. Take advantage of our flex hours to fit your organization’s changing needs. Perhaps you only need 40 hours per month now but down the road you need 80 or 320. We can easily adapt.
Custom ProjectsWe understand that there is no ‘one size fits all’ model so we’ll work with you to right-size our team and pricing to best meet your needs. This approach is ideal when you have a specific end goal and timeline in mind. Perhaps you’ve been contemplating a particular solution to tie into systems you already have working and that would increase your efficiency or accuracy. We can prepare an estimate for an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and then additional phases of improvement or funtionality where applicable. This provides you with an estimated timeline and price to have what you need up and running.
“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”– George Bernard Shaw
Benefits of Our Team
Hiring just one employee or a freelancer limits you to a single skill set. Our team is staffed with developers holding a wide variety of skills and experience so we can draw on this base to help build you the best solutions. You won’t have to worry about losing your developer and all of their accumulated knowledge of your proprietary system, leaving your system unsupported and undocumented. We cross-train across projects to protect the knowledge we gain about your business. We document our work and organize our code in the way we would want to see in a project that we were picking up. You own your code so if you ever need to work with another team, you’ll have everything needed to hand over to them.
