Solution Architecture Project

We work with you to map a custom architecture and governance strategy that will support your business, secure user data, optimize interactions and reliably scale over time.

Deciding whether to build or integrate with a third-party web service has major implications for your project timeline and budget. From creating custom software solutions to leveraging Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings for their performance, scalability and robust management tools, our architects work with you to safeguard against attrition and ensure the compatibility of your solution through side-by-side operation, migrating data-in-place or a custom alternative when maintaining or upgrading legacy platforms.

Elevate UX/UI

Speed Custom Software Solutions with User Validation

  • User Testing
  • User Experience
  • User Interface

We accelerate software design with our blend of lean methodology and Agile process, increasing our output and your return.

Practiced in considering your users’ expectations and selecting the optimum form factor, we deliver custom software solutions that distill complex business needs into experiences that feel simple for users. Our clients are involved upfront weighing in on features and storyboarding with us. Our first startup clients needed more value — faster. So we evolved our process to match their tempo.

Short rounds of concepting, prototyping and feedback harmonize our ability with your deep understanding of the consumer. Discovery, design, measurement and revision phases overlap in continuous iterative cycles. Information architecture and wireframes or illustrations of an interface may be created before visual design begins. They allow both visual designers and developers to gain an understanding and collaborate on the intended experience.

Possible Outputs

  • User persona designations
  • Modeled task/decision flows
  • Sitemap organization
  • User interface design
  • Annotated wireframes
  • Development-ready assets

blackriver Custom Software Development

With experience in the full range of frameworks and development languages, MentorMate technologists help our clients select the best development strategy and technologies to balance available capital and future potential.

We maintain SCRUM methodology throughout the software development lifecycle and deliver working software through short, iterative cycles of building, testing and learning maximizing transparency and minimize development time.

We start each custom software solutions project collaboratively ordering the feature list and prioritizing development according to its functional ability to drive business value. We present working software at the end of each two-week sprint to maintain momentum and accountability. Working at a pace the business can count on, we’re better able to forecast release goals and provide actionable intelligence.
