OUR PROCESS FOR PARTNERING WITH OUR CLIENTS

Welcome to the heart of our software development ethos, where precision meets innovation in our five-stage lifecycle framework. Developed and deployed over decades, the Zircon Integrated Lifecycle Framework has been designed to propel clients forward, drive innovation, efficiency, and unparalleled success. Together, let’s shape the future of software development, one milestone at a time.

Zircon’s Integrated Lifecycle Framework

OFFERING PEACE OF MIND BY STARTING ON THE RIGHT FOOT

Strategy & Discovery

At the outset, our journey commences with Strategy & Discovery, in our experience the most important phase of the lifecycle. This is the phase where we immerse ourselves in understanding client objectives, challenges, and aspirations. It is here that we lay the foundation for a robust partnership and align our strategies with your vision.

We will take in the degree of definition already in place, put stakeholder perceptions to the test and remove the presence of internal bias to really get to the root of the problem, in turn leading to overall reduced project risk.

ROBUST AND COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING SETS THE STAGE

Analysis & Design

Throughout the Analysis & Design phase, our expert teams collaborate closely with our clients and their teams to conceptualise and architect solutions that not only address current needs but also anticipate future requirements. Through detailed analysis and innovative design, we craft comprehensive plans that will serve to guide the Development and Deployment stages. Essentially setting the stage for what lies ahead.

WHERE ALL THE PLANNING FINALLY BECOMES A REALITY

Development

Flowing down from discovery and design, the Development Phase is where the magic truly happens.  In taking the designs and applying industry best practices, our talented developers transform our clients’ ideas into functional software solutions.  With an unwavering commitment to quality and efficiency, guided by defined and trusted processes, we ensure that every line of code is meticulously crafted to deliver optimal performance.

LAUNCHING CLIENT SOLUTIONS WITH EXPERT PRECISION

Deployment

Navigating from the collaborative development phase into deployment, our focus shifts towards orchestrating the smooth integration of the crafted solution with our client’s wider ecosystem. This pivotal phase not only encompasses the technical aspects of deployment but also extends to providing comprehensive documentation and training.

PEACE OF MIND DOESN’T STOP AT DEPLOYMENT

Support & Maintenance

The journey doesn’t end with deployment, it merely marks the beginning of a new phase. The software we develop is crucial to your business operations, and any downtime or issues can significantly impact your productivity and bottom line.

Once agreed and successfully deployed, we enter a period of hyper-care to provide support and troubleshoot unexpected technical issues should they arise and assist with any questions our clients may have.

Our maintenance agreements with clients provide proactive monitoring of the deployed software to identify potential issues before they become major problems, minimizing downtime and increasing productivity.
