Software Project Services

Thorogood Software offers a wide range of services covering the full spectrum of the software development life cycle and typically includes the following:

  • Project analysis and planning
    We are able to investigate the feasibility of a proposed project. We have gathered a wide range of experiences to enable us to quickly identify project requirements and know which technologies are best suited for many given software processes
  • System design
    From information sourced during the planning phase we can create a detailed architecture and specification for each application
  • Development and documentation
    Using the design documents prepared by either yourself, ourselves or a 3rd party we instruct our development team to begin construction of the system. All source code is documented and presented using industry recognised formats and of course the degree of documentation is dependent on the level you require
  • Testing
    We utilise unit, integration, system and acceptance testing
  • Deployment
    We always aim to make program installations as straight forward as possible, although it is often dependent on the range of technologies used. Windows® operating system applications are usually deployed from sources stored on our web server and intelligently installed using digitally signed Installaware Studio packaged execuables. Installations can be deployed using the Windows® Installer service or run independently
  • Maintenance and enhancement
    In consultation with the client we agree a flexible product enhancement and support package tailoured to the needs of the customer. We actively take part in customer arranged user group meetings from which system enhancements and action plans are constructed
