Rapid Application Development

Rapid Application Development

A solution that meets your needs

Let’s build something that meets your unique needs, leveraging our experience building solutions for agencies here in Oregon and across the country.  We have helped agencies build larger more customized solutions such as front and back end licensing systems, claim processing solutions, and case management systems.  We have also helped countless agencies quickly launch solutions using our rapid application development solutions.

Our goal is to help you streamline your business processes and create efficiencies through secure online solutions that are right-sized to meet your business, technical, accounting, legal, and customer needs.

Our Process

Step 1: Dig

Requirements aren't always obvious. They are often buried within layers of domain knowledge and evolving processes. We work with your team to identify and clarify current processes and help translate those processes into digital solutions.

Step 2: Plan

Careful planning ensures everyone's needs are being met, from the customer service representative to the Executive Director.  Planning activities ensure we work together efficiently as a project team. 

Step 3: Build

We use a hybrid development methodology to pull on the industry's best practices while meeting government's unique needs.  You will have access to test your solution iteratively throughout the process so that we can remain nimble and responsive to your evolving needs. There's no black box here, you're involved every step of the way.

Step 4: Launch

We can launch with a bang, or open the doors quietly to ease your customers and staff into the new service. We will help you meet your strategic goals by delivering on time, on strategy and in budget. 

Step 5: Monitor, Support, & Update

Once the doors are open, our friendly support teams monitor, support, and update your service to ensure it continues to perform as web browsers and security standards evolve.  Our teams are ready 24/7 to respond to any incidents that may arise.  We will also be here to help you onboard new staff as your team and business processes evolve.

Our focus

Our project management team utilizes the Scrum framework to create user stories, prioritize them, and put together a plan. This process allows us to incorporate and adapt to changes as needed, speeding up our time to market, and keeping our partners and citizens engaged throughout the project lifecycle.

Security & peace of mind

All applications are PCI compliant and are regularly scanned to ensure citizen data is protected.

Excellent user experience

We make sure your application is easily navigable by all your constituents and staff on any device.  We build mobile-first and adhere to State of Oregon standards.

Usability testing

Prior to launch, we test usability with real potential users to make sure the known use cases of the application work for your users. 

Smart, efficient design & development

Our team of talented software designers and engineers will work their coding magic to build the application according to your requirements.

Quality assurance testing

Testing is a key piece to a successful application. Our team of Quality Assurance testers not only test during development, they also continue checking the application post-launch to make sure no balls are dropped.

Marketing support

Need help getting the word out about your new application? We will help market the new application by releasing press releases, posts on social media, and more!

Friendly, responsive support

We're local Oregon residents committed to support the full life cycle of your service.  We're here to help with any questions or concerns, troubleshooting, or training needed.

Accessibility is a given

We understand that accessibility is legally required in all of the work we do for our Oregon government partners. Each solution NIC Oregon builds is designed to meet the rigorous accessibility standards government expected on government websites, such as federal Section 508 standards, international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and the Plain Language Act of 2010.

Let’s work together.

We’d love to work with you to build exactly what you need.
