Application Development

"At NavigationArts we create transformative applications for smart organizations."

Don Bruns, Senior Consultant


Custom Application Development

Well-constructed custom applications can give organizations the tools they need to accomplish their unique business needs. Intuitive and easy to use applications allow organizations to work more efficiently and improve their bottom line.

Custom applications can:

  • Improve services to customers, employees, members, and other users
  • Streamline operations through advanced workflow solutions and collaboration tools
  • Increase profits by lowering expenses and raising revenue
  • Leapfrog competitors by providing new capabilities and improved functionality
  • Transform an industry by introducing game-changing applications online

In order to best meet these goals, NavigationArts approaches application development from the user’s perspective. From the very beginning we strive to identify the business case and the user needs by gathering requirements, facilitating interviews with users and business stakeholders, and prototyping the solution.

We have experience building scalable, extensible applications in the major web programming languages such as: ASP.NET, Java, PHP, and Ruby. Our excellent front-end development team is intimately familiar with interactive libraries and Rich Internet Application technologies such as: Flash, ExtJS, jQuery, and Dojo.

Our expertise lies in:

  • Workflow and Collaboration
  • Knowledge Management
  • Business Intelligence Systems
  • Data Visualization
  • E-Commerce

Our application development services include: rapid prototyping, usability testing, heuristic evaluations, data modeling, requirements analysis, solution architecture, database design, systems integration, and custom coding.

The award-winning mapviewer tool NavigationArts designed for LandScope America lets users explore conservation trends using maps, data, photography, and stories in a rich, compelling user experience.


Development Methodologies

To efficiently and correctly build websites and web applications, we align our development teams with our client’s needs and preferences. We are able to employ waterfall, iterative, or fully agile methodologies. Our cross-discipline teams work in the most effective manner depending on the engagement, the resources and schedule available, and according to the size and scope of the system to be built. Whether it’s a standard waterfall or an agile process with sprints, NavigationArts has experience ensuring that the product is sound and that our user-centric approach is still a key aspect of its success.
