User friendly web applications

Perplex develops user friendly, smart online applications, service portals and tools. Integrated with your internal systems or data from third parties.

Maybe software development is not the first thing you think of with an online agency. But the very strong focus on a real user-and-marketing oriented way of thinking combined with our Microsoft certified programmers make for a powerful combination.

Think first, act later

It is very tempting to start the first scrum sprint as soon as possible. But in our experience, putting some extra time put in the business case and user research is its own payback during the journey. Why are we going to develop this application? And what are the patterns and needs of the users? We develop a clear plan, jointly describe the required functionality and test external links through a proof-of-concept.

Functional design, blueprints and user interface

As an online company, we strongly believe in the power of the image. Also in software development, we get started with wireframes and blueprints as quickly as possible. We work out all the processes and step-by-step test all screens and interactions.

The rise of HTML5 makes it possible to develop online interfaces with the experience of offline applications. Web designers at Perplex also develop the front-end and have a regular look at our eye tracking study among users. Perplex has its own usability lab. Therefore, they know exactly what is working correctly and what is not. We focus strongly on user friendliness without losing sight of aspects such as perception and functionality in the process.

Reliable technical realization

Meaningful applications ask for experienced programmers. All our developers are Microsoft certified and Perplex is a Microsoft Gold application development partner. Our development is based on the Microsoft .Net platform, Umbraco CMS and HTML5/ CSS/JavaScript. Our programming is based on the usual standards in our industry, such as MVC and Bootstrap.

Linking with external systems

Characteristic of online applications is that they are often integrated with existing information systems. We have experience with many APIs and web services of sometimes highly complex applications such as Sofico Miles (leasing and financing), Hogia Bookit, Google, Copernica, LinkedIn, TicketLab, Ogone / Ingenico, Azure Active Directory, SAP, various PIM systems iProfiles and Salesforce.

Development: To scrum or not to scrum

We prefer implementing detailed design, development and testing of the application in a number of sprints. In our experience, all project methodology has its benefits and drawbacks. Everything depends of the people at the key positions of the project. We prefer working with a pragmatic version of Scrum, supplemented with tactics from other project management methods.

Reliable hosting

For hosting of the application, we cooperate with a partner so that we can guarantee quality and safety in this area as well. Our partners IS Online possess triple ISO certification (ISO 20000, ISO 9001 and ISO 27001). They also have an ISAE 3402 Type II-accreditation and PCI DSS and ISO 14001 compliant data centres located in the Netherlands.

Your own experienced and dedicated team

Within Perplex we work in multidisciplinary self-managing teams that integrate thinking and acting. Even after delivery, the Perplex staff developing the application with you take care for support, maintenance and new releases. This is to ensure that working together really means together. And we secure all knowledge and experience gained in the development of the project.
