Since 1998, we've been developing software for a variety of small and enterprise clients within energy, health, photonics, and agricultural sectors. We've learned that even the most complex projects can be simplified into bite-sized chunks, making progress more visible and frequent. This approach allows for fast prototyping, frequent feedback, and continuous oversight by stakeholders to ensure steady alignment with the overall vision and objectives. Our time-tested methodology results in project objectives being achieved on-time and on-budget, with no surprises. We'll walk you through our process, explore your specific requirements, and work with you to determine how we can help turn your ideas and requirements into something real.
Why pay to re-create the wheel when we've already perfected a brilliant user experience including an application framework, navigational structure, admin dashboard and user portal? It's yours at no additional cost when you have Altitude manage the hosting and support of your solution.
When we build your next great software project, you won’t have to worry about application and database hosting. Using Microsoft Azure, a leading cloud platform, we'll host your app in a Canadian data center and manage security aspects, code updates, database backups, and uptime.
A proper project management process that includes an understanding of use cases, the classification of core and non-core requirements, a roadmap, and a simple and extensible system architecture enables a project to 'hit the mark', on-time and on-budget.
From discovery to development and deployment to documentation, we've got you covered.
We'll determine the necessary framework and technology components required to support project objectives.
We'll configure application entities and their relationships and constraints, as are relevant to the specified requirements.
Perhaps the most crucial aspect of project success is how intuitive, convenient, and efficient the user experience is.
Getting our hands dirty with a little code is what we live for, but only after prerequisite pieces are understood and in place.
Exceptional user experience is intuitive and frustration-free. User guidance can help ensure satisfaction and acceptance.
We can modernize your existing out-dated software with a universal web app or fresh new desktop app.
As you can see from our prior work, we know our way around graphic design, video production, and online training.
Developing a great app is sometimes only half the battle. We help you rank high within Google and other search engines.
Why re-create the wheel if you don't have to? We've developed a user experience and back-end framework that allows for rapid prototyping and development.
We are a full stack development firm with expertise in industry-leading technologies and platforms.
We specialize in mobile-friendly, Microsoft ASP.Net MVC web application development utilizing cloud platforms to enable easily-updatable and extensible content.
Sometimes the most important applications are those you can't even see! We develop universal APIs that can serve a variety of purposes.
Data architecture is at the core of any software application, and we use industry-leading Microsoft SQL Server for all of our projects, in the cloud or on-premises.
Managers have better things to do than dig in the weeds for information. We produce intuitive analytics solutions to help visualize and make complex data actionable.
Everyone loves a view from 30,000 feet! Our dashboards and business intelligence analytics solutions allow for high-level visibility with drill-down granularity.
It's no secret that software projects typically run over-budget and take much longer to complete than what was initially expected. We'll develop a roadmap and stick to it. We don't like surprises either.
With an active Project Management Professional designation, we've developed a simple, cost-effective, risk-minimized approach to intuitive software development.
We’ll develop a detailed work plan and budget that clearly defines project milestones and timelines.
We’ll develop a working solution that incorporates core requirements and an intuitive user experience.
We’ll recruit a select group of users to test all aspects of the software to ensure a stable, production-ready solution.
We’ll develop the necessary training and support media to ensure effective and rapid user adoption.
You are now the hero, having developed an impressive on-budget application that meets your specific requirements.
* The above methodology assumes a complex project. Smaller projects are much more condensed and less formal.

We've all heard horror stories about software projects taking longer to develop and costing more than initially anticipated. This problem is mainly due to a few significant flaws in the development process: poor planning and re-creating the wheel. We try to do things a little different--to avoid unanticipated surprises. That is, before we start writing a single line of code, we work with our clients to define both core and non-core requirements, and then develop a suitable roadmap, timeline, and budget. Only when this process is complete, and everyone is on the same page will we develop a simple prototype for client and end-user validation. Given we've been at this for more than two decades, we've developed a framework that allows for this stage to occur rapidly. Once the prototype is tweaked, and we get a thumbs-up from everyone at the planning table, we develop the core application. The result is a product that is completed on-time and on-budget.
Absolutely! If you can find an already-available solution that meets 80% or more of your overall requirements, try it out. For instance, if your objective is to create an employee survey or find software to help manage your lead generation efforts, there are plenty of available solutions to choose from. If you find a solution that doesn't deliver on all of your critical requirements, contact the developer to learn if there is an option for product enhancements based on your needs. Only if you are unsuccessful in these efforts, or if your requirements are complex, unique, or proprietary, then custom software is something you may need to consider.
This depends entirely on how involved and complex your requirements are. In any case, however, a non-working prototype can be developed fairly quickly so that you and others within your organization can start visualizing the end product and discovering otherwise unanticipated feature requirements and considerations. We handle this very carefully, however, to ensure scope is managed to exclude unnecessary nice-to-haves, otherwise called 'feature-creep'. The short answer is that you may be able to start experiencing a simple prototype within only a few weeks of project initiation.
In a nutshell, we're batting 1000! This means that we've yet to fail to deliver or exceed expectations on any of our projects. When we say 'on-time and on-budget', we mean it. In fact, since we started in 1998, our business has been built entirely on referrals and continued work from existing clients. From small mom-and-pop industrial companies to technology start-ups, and large, multi-national organizations to the public sector, we've had our hands in just about everything. Most important to us is that our clients end up with something that exceeds their original expectations and that they see immense value from their investment. And when projects are complete, we sure like to stay tuned-in to help ensure smooth operationalization / commercialization.
You will notice that many of our projects have a consistent 'look and feel'. This is because, over the years, we have developed a solid and robust UX and code framework that we roll forward to new projects. While clients will always retain their proprietary logic and other digital assets, we provide the option to utilize our existing framework to significantly reduce the time and cost required to complete new projects. We don't like to recreate the wheel, and we certainly don't feel it would be right to have clients pay for work that has already been done in the past. This is how we can develop software very quickly, at a lower cost, and with very few bugs and unexpected issues.
This software was developed for internal use by the client and is not available to the general public.
