Software solutions are an integral part of business and our daily lives. You cannot avoid it.

Most businesses will need to run a software development project at one time or another. Many small and medium sized businesses need help with not only their software development but also integrating software products into their operations. This process can be a frightening proposition for business managers, introducing risk, uncertainty and financial and time costs. Forbytes can reduce the risks, reduce the fear and help implement software projects in a timely way at a reasonable cost.

When digital transformation is done right, it’s like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar.

Facilitating Success

Successful digitalisation projects deliver business value in a timely manner at an appropriate cost. Bridging the gap between technology and business is not always as simple as one may assume. A little research will show how easy it is for software projects to fail.

The consequences of an unsuccessful project can be far reaching, particularly when many business processes are reliant on the outcome. The knock-on effects of failing to meet timelines or budgets in a software project can be significantly negative in other areas. The ramifications can range from a delay in processing payments, for example, to job losses and significant reputational damage. 

Forbytes project management as a service domino effect struggling against consequences

Very few CEOs and senior managers have the spare capacity to manage short-term projects. Their core responsibilities naturally demand their attention, however they still need to be aware of what is happening and when. The responsibility for delivering short term projects are often delegated to the next available person, regardless of whether they have the skills or experience needed to successfully implement and deliver the project.  

Forbytes has the experience, respect, empathy, knowledge, manpower and discipline to deliver projects that meet your business needs – whether the project is a short-term one or will develop into a long-term maintenance relationship.

Just like the other components of our service offer (Customer Dedicated TeamConsultancy and Advisory Service) the Forbytes PMS offers the benefits of having your own in-house project management team, without the overhead of having to recruit people and manage the project on a day-to-day basis. We take care of the project management of your software development and implementation, so that you and the rest of your team can focus on achieving your business objectives.

Forbytes works closely with you to put together a highly trained and motivated team to deliver business value to you. The team:

Has a flexible structure

The team structure is flexible so the necessary skills are employed at the right time. You do not have to manage this as the coordination falls under the role of the project manager. Your time can be spent on your other business critical strategies.

Works to a well defined 4D structure

The Forbytes methodology for software development is agile and focuses on delivering smart solutions with real value to your business.

We use simple, well-defined agile concepts and processes, giving our clients full control throughout the project. The four core processes within our methodology are:

  • Discover
  • Design
  • Develop
  • stop

Communication is regular and abundant, so you can follow the project’s progress closely, without having to be involved in the minutiae involved.
