From building our own awesome projects and those for our clients we have fine tuned a custom development process. Our background is in product development and we are very good at taking an idea from concept to reality. This process might involve everything from product development, business model discovery, market testing and customer validation. We've been blessed with the opportunity of working with a variety of great people on some very cool ideas. When we work on a project we treat it like our own. SEM is open to partner with Joint Ventures to create residual business models that lead to larger applications in the Mobile Space and beyond. Keep dreaming and creating.
It's a date, let's meet. After an initial handshake, a couple laughs we get down to business. We love hearing about great new ideas - and working hard to make them happen, making great products, is part of what drives us. The discovery process is where we meet you and hear your needs. It's also a valuable time to go over any existing solutions and components that you may have. The types of projects we work on can differ a lot, the discovery process ensures we plan a development and deployment strategy that makes sense for you.
After our consultation we sharpen our pencils and get to work. Studies have shown that for every hour spent in requirements analysis and planning 10 to 100 hours are saved in development. This is also where we ensure everyone is on the same page and building what you want and your customers need.
This is where we blend our experience in scaling applications with your expected traffic and usage demands.
Before spending much time writing code we like to create wireframes. Wireframes are simple diagrams that enable us to rough draft the application interface.
Branding is very important. We want to ensure that the application, website or program we design communicates the right message with its visual style. Before we get into designing full page PSDs of what the application will look like we start with a style guide. This ensures that we create synergy between core visual elements such as the navigation, titles and links across all devices we are building for. We also look at any existing branding you may want included into your application.
It's go time. We know what we are building, it's time to roll up the sleeves and get down to business. We break development into modules.
We have our development and design teams work side-by-side when building applications. When the best minds work together great ideas happen.
We release our products in stages. The first release stage is the "alpha" stage. This is a limited release by private invitation and it allows us to test across browsers, debug the system for all users, and get user feedback.
It's time for deployment to the world. The second release stage is the "beta" stage. This is a full release with a disclaimer to all new users that there may be some bugs and errors. You've probably seen Google do this when they release their apps. Beta release allows us to control deployment and ensure our systems can handle the needed growth rates.
Building webapps is fun. There are few things as exciting today as the opportunity to build an amazing webapp that solves a real problem.
Today's applications can be beautiful, intuitive and responsive. With the technology today, building a webapp is the best way to offer an application that truly can work on any device.

User experience has never been more important. "[Design is] not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." ~ Steve Jobs
Great design needs to take into account the key functions of the form. We believe design has the potential to take a great concept and make it truly remarkable and useful. With an in-depth knowledge of the programming capabilities and understanding of the core needs is brilliant design possible.
You have a great idea, but no idea of how to take it from a concept to a growing business application.
