How we deliver
1Goal Driven Design
Sentia follows the straightest path to results. We understand the intersection of good development practice with responsive user centric design.
2Small, Senior Teams
Our developers are based in Australia. This enables you to nurture a good rapport with your developers, genuinely understand rationale in developmental choices, plus remain eligible for access to Australian Government business grants for working locally.
We specialise in Ruby on Rails, iOS & Android development. Sentia’s team works hard to stay up to date on all the latest technology. We use these latest technologies to build your web software in the smartest, most efficient way we can. This keeps us with your budget and keeps us sticking to the timelines.
4Customers as Partners
We are constantly in touch with weekly WIP meetings and daily slack communications. Sentia has a strong history of working collaboratively with successful start-ups and established businesses across industries. We don’t just take your idea, run with it and leave you in the dark—you’re part of the team, and you’re involved at every stage.
5Quick to market feedback
We believe that the most effective communication tool is working software. That's why our apps are tested continuously and deployed several times a week. Using your products and getting feedback let's you validate strategic assumptions and ideas.
6Transparency & Honesty
We have nothing to hide. Our work ethic, attitude, and culture dictate that we share every step of the project with you, so you know what’s happening with your software. We develop practical software, without the extra fluff. You’ll see it in our work. With Sentia, what you see is what you get.
At Sentia, we take a structured approach to software development. Our development process was created to ensure every project is delivered on-time and on-budget.
We can either meet in person or talk on the phone, whichever is more convenient for you. Advise on market potential, estimate product cost. This can also advice about raising capital for your startup.
Sentia can provide a mutual NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) that protects your and Sentia's IP.
The get-to-know-you stage of the project. This is when we review business requirements and project goals, and high-level timeline. Assign team, establish process and get to know the client / team.
Gathering and finalizing requirements and goals for your project. Learning and understanding the problems to be solved, your customers and competitors. We then marry the results into a cohesive project plan (UX & prototype).
Everything we've discussed so far about your project starts to take shape in the design stage. We apply learnings into a high-fidelity visual representation of the end product.
The development phase of your project is where we implement the approved functionality from Planning and Design stages. Internal quality assurance testing and verification of feature completion.
Reviewing the functionality of the product with you against the established acceptance criteria in a testing environment. Reporting and resolution on any discrepancies.
You'll have been signing everything off at the various project milestones, so this shouldn't be a big job. Accepting the project as final and complete, according to specifications, and ready for release to its intended target audience.
Post launch, we're on hand for any immediate bug fixes, making sure you're running perfectly. After that, its up to you to tell us when you need our support. You may be a non-tech Founder or need an expert team of app developers. We can help if you want to continue to add features, to improve the product or just have a developer ready to roll, we can dedicate a number of hours per week to you.
Driven by amazing technology
The key to getting the most out of the technologies we use is flexibility. Sentia specialises in Ruby on Rails, iOS & Android development. We'll use other technologies when it makes sense for your project. For us, it's all about using the right tool for the job.
Additionally, we build software using: Redux, Redis, MySQL, PostgresSQL, Stripe, Paypal, Assembly Payments, Braintree, Anchor, AWS, Heroku.
