CodeSwyft is a small software development company based in Minneapolis. We are software designers & developers who specialize in building custom web sites, web applications, and mobile applications. We strive to build software that is both powerful and easy to use. Our goal is to help other small businesses succeed by providing them with high-quality tools that are tailored to their needs!
We design and build web sites and web applications, desktop applications, and mobile device applications. Our team can handle every phase of software development - from analysis and design all the way through support and maintenance. We’ll work with you to build your new product, or help improve your existing software.
We try to find simple solutions for complex problems. We follow a user-centered approach to developing software applications. When building a new application, we start by understanding what it needs to do. We'll work with you to write short ‘user stories’, which are very brief feature descriptions. Then we'll design the application's screens on paper. Next, we build a semi-functional prototype that we can demonstrate to you to get your feedback and make adjustments. Then we build the real thing - swiftly - and test it thoroughly. We repeat this process several times, adding functionality with each iteration, until the product is complete.
Communication is key. Frequent communication with clients during a project is essential to understanding a problem, and yields a better end-product than could otherwise be achieved.
Feedback is essential. Creating usable software right away is far more valuable than spending weeks or months doing up-front analysis & design. We prefer to build a working solution right away. Having a prototype that clients can interact with drastically helps reduce misunderstandings that often plague projects done with the up-front design approach.
Change is expected. A problem often isn’t fully understood until a solution is posed. Sometimes requirements change while a product is being built. Our approach to development allows us address changing requirements quickly and easily.
Keep it simple. Complex problems can often have simple and elegant solutions. Too many software applications are overloaded with unnecessary features, and are therefore more difficult to use and more expensive to maintain than they could be. Most software applications should not require training or thick manuals nobody wants to read. Software should be simple, intuitive, and reliable.
Our commitment to exceptional service means that we strive for excellence in the products we produce. We’ll work with you to find the perfect solution that meets your needs and fits your time and budget constraints. We’ll provide a usable, tested product at regular intervals so you’re able to see how your project is progressing. Finally, we're happy to discuss your project at any time via email, chat, phone, or a face-to-face meeting. We’re always ready to listen.
