Third Mind designs and builds custom web-based systems. We specialize in highly-functional websites and online applications including business process automation, products to be sold as services (SaaS), and integration of disparate systems and services.
Our services best fit the client who has a critical need that isn’t fully satisfied by an existing service or product. While we may customize available products as part of an overall solution, our custom development extends beyond the box.
Utilizing Microsoft .NET, Microsoft SQL Server, PHP, mySQL , Ruby on Rails and WordPress, our development effort encompasses 4 types of applications:
Software development is a complex process. We understand that your decision to pursue a custom solution and commit to an agency requires a leap of faith. Third Mind has over 20 years of experience delivering successful custom solutions. We are expert at managing your risk. We educate and illuminate as we nurture your concept together. And yes, we will hold your hand.
When it comes to a successful project, expectations are everything. Do we understand what you want? Do we all agree how far out on the complexity spectrum we are going to push development? Do we know where the greatest risks reside? If clients and developers are on the same page, future surprises should be limited.
That said, what should you expect when you work with us?
Every project is different. And any level of functionality can be built given enough time and budget. But there is a sweet spot for all development that is prioritized for the right delivery timeline and the available budget. Helping you find that sweet spot is one of our first goals.
This is where the heavy creative lifting takes place – where we design the technical solution.
Multi-function projects benefit greatly from a prototype or proof of concept. Studies have shown that proving the solution in prototype form greatly reduces overhead during the construction phase. It also positions for incremental development and, in turn, quicker delivery times.
This is essentially the construction phase – where the project is built out and takes it’s form.
When the development is complete, it’s time to refrain from making any further changes so planning can be done for going live.
Once the site is live, we follow up with tech support and instructions for care and feeding of the new site.
We are an agency who services beyond development. Our guiding principle is to support you and not just your software. We listen; we collaborate; we suggest alternatives; we assess risk; we execute. We are proactive and strategic. We see ourselves as partners in your business and won’t withdraw our exceptional level of customer service after development is complete.
The proof is in the pudding, Puddin’. There are a lot of talkers out there in the world: promising the stars along with fractional budgets to go along with their loose talk. Third Mind will tell it to you straight right from the start. Here are a few project examples of our agency stepping up and getting the details right. Every time. Now wouldn’t that be a smarter way to start your project and protect your company’s capital as well as its calendar?
