Advantages of individual software solutions

For many business processes, there is very good standard software that allows a sufficient degree of customisation to the needs of your company and is therefore the first choice. Equally, however, there is a large number of challenges for which there is simply no standard software, where standard solutions do not fit our customer's requirements, or through which potential competitive advantages cannot be realised. In these cases, our customers rely on customised solutions “made by Milestone” that are precisely tailored to their needs.

Unique competitiveness

“Made by Milestone” custom software is 100% tailored to your requirements so that you can exploit the entire digitalisation potential of your critical processes and thus differentiate yourself from competitors who only rely on standard software for these processes.

Software follows process

“Made by Milestone” custom software maps your business processes exactly as you imagine them. There is no need to laboriously adapt your own processes and organisational structures to the software and make unnecessary, suboptimal compromises.

Independence

By using “made by Milestone” custom software you have unlimited possibilities for customising your solution. Subsequent changes and extensions are possible at any time, so that your software adapts to unforeseen changes and the growth of your business. By using custom-developed software, you gain independence from updates, conditions and licence costs of standard software providers.

User-oriented software

The development of “made by Milestone” custom software requires
early inclusion of the software users' requirements, which means that a vast majority of users accept the software without hesitation. By using custom software, you provide your users with software that enables efficient and process-specific work.

The 8 phases of software development

Phase
1

Idea

Every project starts with an idea for the improvement of current business processes.

Phase
2

Requirements analysis

Together, we develop a clear vision and description of the future solution taking into account the current and future desired business processes.

Phase
3

Architecture

We develop state-of-the-art solutions in the cloud, on site, or as a hybrid solution, tailored to your IT landscape and the goals of the new solution.

Phase
4

UX/UI Design

We develop solutions with a modern feel and intuitive user interfaces that will delight your users.

Phase
5

Implementation

We develop your new solution step by step in close cooperation with your teams and ensure that it always meets your expectations.

Phase
6

Testing

Together, we make sure that the solution does exactly what you want it to do.

Phase
7

Deployment

We support you in the roll-out of the solution, train the users, and ensure that the solution is also a complete success in your daily operations.

Phase
8

Maintenance and Support

Even after project completion, we stay at your side and take over the long-term support for the application.

Use Case Assessment

If the requirements of new development are not defined, Milestone Consult proceeds systematically and determines them with a Use Case Assessment, analysing the processes in order to understand the problems. The result is captured in a problem description with the recommended actions and the implementation roadmap.

Requirements analysis

Architecture

Platform Assessment

In a platform assessment, the existing architecture landscape is analysed and a solution architecture (target architecture from the technical and economic standpoint) is determined.

UX/UI Design

Concept

We create the concept and design of your new software. A prototype is used for verification and feasibility studies, which provides valid results for the implementation. Prototypes can be exploratory, experimental, orevolutionary, depending on the requirements.

Once the new software is in operation, Milestone Consult ensures that it robustly meets user requirements by monitoring performance, errors, and quality. When new requirements arise, we react to them in a timely and agile manner.
