Software development consulting services we offer

If you are seeking software modernization or need help defining critical software requirements, our software engineering consultants can provide unparalleled guidance to align your application development with core business objectives.

Software development project discovery

In the discovery phase, we concentrate on strategic planning for the application development phase. Our proprietary approach includes outlining monetization strategies, thoroughly evaluating data storage options, assessing design specifications, and identifying your competitors.

This comprehensive process also entails thoroughly analyzing both business and technical needs, conducting risk assessments, planning third-party integrations, and formulating a software development roadmap.

Technology consulting and advisory

Vention provides expert guidance on selecting the right technology, including architecture and coding languages. We offer tech stack recommendations for both new solution development and revamping existing ones.

Our engineers also help you choose and implement cutting-edge technologies like AI, IoT, blockchain, and VR/AR. As a result, you get a product foundation that is scalable, adaptable, and easy to maintain and integrate with third-party systems.

Software UI/UX design consulting

Our deep industry knowledge enables us to pinpoint crucial design elements that make user experiences impactful and relevant.

With decades of UI/UX experience under our belt, we begin with wireframes to establish a basic layout and then progress to interactive prototypes, which are key in streamlining development efforts and crafting interfaces that are unique and aligned with your brand.

Regulatory compliance consultancy

We have expertise in domain-specific regulations to make your software solutions secure and compliant with regulations in your region.

Our consultants specialize in various compliance standards across industries, including healthtech (HL7, HIPAA, GDPR, FDA/CE, and EMA/DiGa), fintech (CCAR, DFAST, PCI-DSS), edtech (FERPA, COPPA, WCAG), and ecommerce (GDPR, CCPA, PCI-DSS, WCAG).

Secure software development advisory

Our approach to custom software development is rooted in a deep commitment to security. We craft a detailed and customized plan that embeds top-notch security practices into each phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

This comprehensive plan is more than a list of measures and rules; it's a roadmap offering specific insights and actionable strategies to effectively respond to the evolving threat landscape, continuously fortifying the security of your software.

Software quality assurance and control consulting

We collaborate with you to outline the scope, techniques, and resources crucial for your quality assurance process, creating a QA plan in sync with your project targets. Our software testing strategy provides a roadmap with planned steps, their execution timeline, and resource requirements.

Regardless of the industry, our team of QA experts is ready to help you adopt the highest quality assurance standards, refine documentation, and integrate quality smoothly into your development workflow.

CTO, Remotiv

“We were initially enamored with the design work on some projects we reviewed. They provided a thorough project proposal after reviewing our specifications and we were happy with the proposed tech stack, resource plan, and estimated cost for the project. We were very happy with the initial specification, the design prototypes, and the accuracy of time estimates on the sprints.”
