Building Better Software
Building Better Software Quicker
Give us your tired, your poor, your muddled masses...of applications that need a new start. Or, give us new unexplored territory, ideas you have for new applications.
Have IDEACore build your new system to get the latest thinking in application development at a phenomenal cost structure. Our build-out costs way outshine traditional IT firms and we'd wager, your internal development costs too. The real kicker is that have been inventing software for 20 years, so you get the latest thinking from top-notch computer scientists and seasoned business specialists.
No other firm combines our rich knowledge of customer-driven engineering and software skills. We built the world's first Microsoft Windows application for customer-driven engineering or Quality Function Deployment (QFD). That application is called QFD Designer and is now on Version 5. We released Version 1.0 way back in 1990 as one of the earliest Microsoft developers. QFD Designer is now in use at thousands of firms globally including many of the Fortune 1000. Volkswagen thought highly enough of QFD Designer to have us translate the entire application into German. Dow Chemical uses it enterprise-wide, as does Eaton and Dow Corning to name a few. IBM even standardized on QFD Designer for its Six Sigma consulting work.
In the custom realm, take Lockheed Martin for example. They wanted unique Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) system blended with data-driven interface and sub-system diagramming. We created FMEA software for them, according to their exacting specification. Or, take Harley-Davidson as another example. We created a quality assessment tool for enterprise-wide use at Harley-Davidson. We built a multi-departmental database for Michigan's largest pediatric hospital, Children's Hospital of Michigan. You can see more of our portfolio in the slideshow at the top of the home page.
We have also coached around the globe, in the realm of customer satisfaction and requirements. Research shows that most I.T. systems fail from improperly specified requirements, so we can apply Quality Function Deployment (QFD) to your project, to insure high performance and to prevent missed requirements. Most other firms quickly jump in and code in ad-hoc manner. The result is incomplete, under-performing designs.
Our better attention to requirements management means we learn your Voice of Customer and your use-cases, and we prioritize our findings. This way, we build future-proof systems that can evolve. Our history in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) means we proactively design around pitfalls that most other firms don't spot till after launch. Our designs connect well with other software to, for better integration and data sharing. Our systems are easier to update. Our systems get careful aesthetic/visual design and information architecting to be sure they are easy for your staff to learn. You get to productivity faster. Above all, we keep your business goals front-and-center, because to succeed, good technology must delivery business results.
So, give us your tired, your poor, your muddled masses...of applications that need a new start. Or, give us new, unexplored territory, ideas you have for new applications.
Just be sure and set us free to solve problems of scale, your largest problems and challenges. IDEACore will make sure it gets done right.
