Envative About

Acting as a consultative partner in all engagements with our clients. Challenging ourselves to solve the complex. Working with integrity to earn the trust of those we do business with. Staying current with the latest advancements in technology to make sure we’ve got the answer. Leading by example and doing what we say we’re going to do.

These are our core values. Sticking to them is how we measure ourselves and our success. So far so good.

OUR PROCESS

Some people really love process while others…not so much. At Envative, we more or less have to love it. Why? Because developing, testing and implementing a successful project without process would be, well, crazy. That said, there are often unforeseen variables that can impact the process mid-stream (requirements that have evolved, new features recommended, client resource limitations, etc.) – let’s face it – this is the real world, not always a perfectly orchestrated textbook scenario. Process is critical to project success, however, it’s important to be able to regroup, readjust, and reset when necessary and to keep the end goal in mind – a product or solution that wows you and your users. So we account for the “unknowns” right in our process. We are “agile” in the true sense of the word.

DISCOVERY

Communication between development team and client to ensure clear understanding of client vision, goals and requirements. Allows us to determine the best approach for delivering a great application!

DESIGN

Bringing your vision to life with eye-catching creative and User Interface and User Experience (UI/UX) expertise. Our talented designers will discuss your brand guidelines and incorporate them into your solution. Need help with branding? We can assist with that too.

WIREFRAMING

Prototypes for the functionality - one of the most critical phases of a project as this is the optimum time for new features to be identified. Code is not written until wireframes have been approved so no time (or expense) is wasted on rework due to unclear expectations.

ARCHITECTING

Laying the foundation upon which we'll build your Experience! This might be a site map, a framework or a database infrastructure depending on the project at hand.

DEVELOPMENT

This is the "heavylifting" phase when the actual coding of your wireframes takes place along with APIs and any other systems integrations! Regular sprint meetings are held during this phase so you can watch progress along the way.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

In addition to manual debugging, we also employ Automated Unit Tests, User Interface Testing and crash report analysis. All bugs are logged in web-based issue tracking tool and monitored through completion to ensure nothing is missed.

BETA TESTING

Once Envative gets through initial QA testing/bug fix phase, we turn over a fully functional instance of the system (app) for client review and testing. This gives you the opportunity to fully vet it with your internal teams. You will likely find a few minor bugs yourselves, but don’t worry, we will quickly rectify them prior to launch.

ACCEPTANCE

Your team has vetted the product, is comfortable with the solution and excited to start deploying it for production use. This step is when you officially "sign-off" that we've checked all the boxes and delivered as expected, giving us the go-ahead to publish.

TRAINING

We'll review your new application with client administrators and users to make sure everyone is comfortable using your shiny new system.

DEPLOYMENT

Woohoo! Mobile apps release to stores (iTunes and Google Play); Websites and custom web applications are published to production url. Everyone is happy as customers flock to your awesome new site or app!

We stand behind our work so rest assured that every project comes with a standard warranty period to give you peace of mind.
