"Working with Blue Trail was a pleasure since they understood Section 508 compliance and made sure that the resulting code was merged back into our own development environment. Then they even helped us on how to remain compliant!"

Hybrid Development Model

We strategically designed our development model to deliver only the highest quality apps with significant cost savings for our clients. Our 5 global offices host exceptionally talented professionals of different domains.

Cost Comparison

Here is an example of how much it would cost to design and build a mid-complex MVP supporting both Android & iOS platforms.

Development Models

Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) mode

In this model, we set up a team of experienced professionals (project managers, developers, QA engineers, etc.), fully assigned to your company. Candidates are identified and selected, based on your own job descriptions. This team will be hosted in one of our development centers (ODC), and will therefore benefit from our existing infrastructure: office space, similar to the ones software developers are used to in the Bay Area, dedicated hardware and software infrastructure, high-speed communication equipment, physical and network security, and more features as requested. The goal is to eventually transfer the entire team to your organization.

Fixed-costed development

If you have well-defined requirements, we implement them for a fixed cost, which helps in planning your project budget in advance. This is best suited for customers with complete project specifications in place, and with little expected changes in specifications during the development phase (not a very common scenario though). If you do not have well-defined requirements yet, we can first work on them on a time-and-material basis and then, provide you with a fixed cost solution.

Staff augmentation

In this model, we provide resources that will be directly managed by you. Our commitment lies in identifying and retraining the best resources for the job. DevOps, core teams.

Hybrid development Model (inshore – offshore)

A blended team of resources from your and our sides is assembled to work on given projects. In this scenario, you will be able to add/retrieve development resources as needed. The team can either be located at your facilities or at ours.

In addition to developing your applications, we can manage them, while in production, using either a break-fix or managed services approach, both solutions having their pros and cons. A preliminary audit of your system will help determine which model is the most adapted to your situation.

IoT Expertise

We work with high potential and disruptive IoT startups to create intuitive mobile experience for connected
devices. We are at the forefront of developing IoT product solutions. Some of our IoT portfolios include:
