Mobile Development

Our process involves three key stages: Strategy, Design and Build.

During the strategy stage, we define both our delivery approach (Agile, Iterative or Waterfall) and our technical approach (Native or Hybrid application). We will also define the scope, goals and high-level requirements of the application.

The key output of the strategy phase is the application roadmap, which describes the plan of how the application can evolve over time to keep users engaged and maintain usage.

Design focuses on user experience and functionality and how the application and user will interact. The main output from the design phase is the wireframes and concept designs.

The build phase is not just about cutting code. At Siso, quality assurance is a key activity it’s not just about performing system and functional testing but also code reviews.

Website Development

No matter how complex your website needs are, Siso can help. By placing emphasis on user experience we can design a website that makes even the complex simple.

Our developers works with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, AJAX and PHP to name a few and can provide both Windows and UNIX based solutions.

Due to the increase in both mobile and tablet browsing, our development framework includes the use of Twitter bootstrap to provide our clients with fully responsive websites.

WordPress Themes

Most people associate WordPress with blogging, but it is so much more.

If WordPress is good enough for the Rolling Stones – it might be just the tool for you and your website.

Through the use of both off-the-shelf and custom-built plugins we can customise and configure WordPress to provide you with a content management system that you can easily update and maintain.

Business Analysis

Information is king. A Siso analyst can work with you and your team to study business functions, gather information and determine operational objectives. We can help you analyse requirements, define processes as workflow charts and diagrams, and create detailed requirement specifications.

A Siso analyst has both a technical and user experience background, so can study your current practices to both advise and design process improvements and system modifications.

A Siso analyst is also trained in Project Management so can help in identifying project milestones, phases, and elements, and help establish project budgets.

We can also help in preparing technical reports by collecting and analysing business information and trends.

Interaction Design

Designing a website or mobile application without planning the user experience is like building a house without blueprints.  Our designer can help you not only with the production of wireframes but also explore who your users are.

Depending on your needs, we can help you analyse your primary/key users and create simple user journeys or develop in-depth user personas. These personas not only help you in designing your website or mobile application but can also help you get a better understanding of your customers.

Our designer can also help with other aspects of analysis and design including information architecture or usability testing.

Technical Consultancy

Technology is the Achilles heel of many organisations, some organisations don’t have internal IT resources or only have specific IT resources i.e. database administrators.

We can provide you with a technical consultant to audit existing technology solutions and provide you with a current/future state analysis. We can also help you develop your IT/digital strategy or work with you from the very start to define appropriate technology approaches for your next project.

We also have experience in the proposal process working with vendors to produce responses, including winning proposals of up to NZ$6.8 million, and working with clients to produce requests for proposals and providing technical expertise on the selection/review panel.
