We build websites small and large. You want a website that you can be proud of, that people can find, and that does what your business needs it to do quickly and on whatever device your customers want to use. This is a site that you should own completely, that does not cost much to maintain, and is resistant to obsolescence. We can show you how to get all of these things, so that you can get back to business.
We build mobile applications for both iOS and Android. We can walk you through the production process so that your mobile application is a joy to use, easy to find, and inexpensive to maintain. The mobile landscape is changing quickly. You need help to stay current. Let our team guide you through the tradeoffs of different design patterns so that your app is developed with the right tradeoff between time-to-market, cost, and functionality.
Quality Assurance (QA)
At Foundry Interactive we take an agile approach to assuring quality. The process begins before the first line of code is written by careful risk-focused analysis of the requirements and design. Building quality and testability in from the ground up, instead of simply relying on inspection at the end of the software development process. Our developers and testers participate in formalized code reviews. Not only do we perform tests against requirements but we check usability, scalability, performance, localization and other quality characteristics. Our highly skilled technical testers take both a hands-on and an automated approach; we know when to apply either for the most robust coverage of your site or application.
Accessibility opens the door to a massive, underserved community of users who can’t currently access goods and services online. Well beyond the needs of just non-sighted users using screen readers, creating accessible digital experiences serves a large and growing body of users. There are users with visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive impairments that may or may not use assistive technologies to help them. Wonderful things happen when your site is easier to use for all of your users. Not sure where to start with accessibility? We can help. We can perform compliance audits, we can train your staff, we can train your developers on how to write accessible code, and we recommend specific implementation techniques to address specific accessibility problems that you may have.
Sometimes, you just need an expert. When it comes to technology, it is our work, our play, and our passion. You may need assistance assessing a technology recommendation, vetting candidates for a new development function within your organization, managing a large technical task, or performing a risk assessment on legacy code. We are here to help. We always start with a free consultation, so that we can gain a better understanding of your needs. From there, we will be able to determine if we are in a position to help, and what that might look like.
