Is IonEngineer right for you?
IonEngineer is the right solution for you if your success is dependent on:
- Being able to develop high quality, highly-intuitive, extremely-robust, easily-scalable and very-secure enterprise, shrink-wrapped, or SaaS software products that are used by an extremely large number of users, OR
- Being agile and very responsive, and being able to in a timely manner roll out new software functionality based on changing business needs, OR
- Being very cost-effective and getting a high ROI for your software engineering budget
and you are facing one or more of the following challenges:
- Not able to develop solutions on Mobile, Cloud, Big Data, and Social Media technology platforms due to inadequate expertise in-house, OR
- Unable to quickly and in a timely manner develop business critical Enterprise Software because you do not have sufficiently large software engineering bandwidth in-house, OR
- Incurring high software engineering costs, either due to high cost of resources or due to the cost of rework because the work was not done right the first time
and therefore as a result maybe experiencing schedule and cost-overruns, missed time-to-market deadlines, inadequate quality, and perhaps the negative outcomes that comes with such an experience.

With IonEngineer you will see and experience:
- Draw, Aim, Fire: There is much to be said about doing things in the right order. Before we give you firm cost and time estimates for any development, and definitely before we build anything for you, we take the time to understand your business requirements. Of course, when we have an established a track record with you and generally know what your needs are, we are able to draw, aim and fire very quickly in the blink of an eye.
- Proactive and Transparent Communication: These are the cornerstones of our project management. Successes, failures, challenges, risks, plans and progress are all communicated to you proactively in a transparent manner. We ensure you always have the information that you are interested in or is relevant to you. No surprises for you, other than being pleasantly surprised by our commitment to your success.
- Dig deeper to truly understand: Before we go out and build something for you, our business analysts and product managers are trained to did deeper by asking thought provoking questions, so that we truly understand your product vision, the business requirements of your user-base and the ground realties of your existing technology and systems landscape. This helps us to fully understand not only what you want, but also what else is possible, and of-course what we should look out for and take into consideration when developing the solution for you.
- What-if and Why-not interactions: We may come across as being questioning or sometimes even argumentative, however we have only your best intentions at heart when we question what you ask us to do, and offer alternatives to you. Our goal is not just to do what you ask us to do, but also to find solutions that may perhaps be better for you, improve your ideas, enhance your product, reduce your costs and bring out the product faster to market.
- Attention to Detail: This is what makes a good product great. Dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s is not just lip service at IonIdea. We truly live by it in everything we do. So you can rest assured that your business functionality will be addressed, your software will be very intuitive and easy to use, and it will work well as specified be it in functionality, performance, interoperability, scalability or availability.
- Agile and Responsive: We will help you boil the ocean, one barrel at a time. Based on the shifting winds of your business needs, we will reprioritize functionality that needs to be delivered in the next sprint of our Agile development process.
- Beauty is also in the mind of the Designer: For the beholder to judge something as being beautiful, the designer has to envision the beauty in their minds. Our UI/UX experts are trained and experienced in building highly-intuitive and user-friendly interfaces for all the products we build. They will design, redesign, and design it again, until they are happy with what they have come up with, before presenting options to you.
- Mock-ups and POCs: Before coding any functionality, we develop mock-up screens with dummy functionality for you to experience so that you know before hand what you will get after we build the solution for you.
- Build to address today’s needs, and to set a foundation for tomorrow: Our “SAT - Subject-Matter-Experts and Architectural Team” reviews, critiques and approves the architecture and design of each and every software product we build for you. We present it to you for your review and approval as well. If you specify the architecture and design of the product you want us to build for you, our SAT reviews what you specify and makes constructive suggestions if any as a value-added exercise. Our goal is to ensure that the investment you make not only adequately addresses you needs for today, but also is reusable as a foundation for your needs tomorrow.
- Reduce and Reuse: Quick turnaround and high-productivity is what you will experience. To do this, and at the same time deliver high quality product to you, our architecture and design stress on simplicity and reusability of software components.
- Do it right the very first time: All code we develop follow the best coding standards, are unit-tested and reviewed by peers. The focus is on catching and fixing errors early on so that cost of developing good quality software is minimized.
- Test it quickly and test it well: Before it is made available to users, we do functional, regression and user acceptance testing. By building and continuously enhancing test automation, our test and deployment process is as fast as fast can be.
- Be there for you when things don’t go as planned: In spite of the best intentions and the best efforts of everybody, sometimes Murhpy’s law comes into play. When things go bad or don’t go as planned, you can count on us to pull in all-nighters and weekenders, to bring in extra ammunition and troops, so that we can together save the day.
- Document and Train: Whatever we do for you, we document it, hand it over to you and train whomever you want us to train, be it your internal employees or other vendors/partners you work with. Our strategy for developing a long-term relationship with you is not based on holding critical knowledge close to our chest. We aim to work with you for a long time only by delivering excellence and helping you succeed.
