Business Software Design & Development

Fox Wyndrum's four-step process defines the scope of a project while at the same time providing a means of measuring its progress and evaluating results during the development cycle - not at completion. The project documentation clearly identifies responsibility and accountability from the start and creates an open forum for review for our clients and the Fox Wyndrum project team. 4 Step Development Process

Within the database or application development process lurk many factors that determine the success or failure of a project. Too many organizations spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars creating the "perfect" application only to have it fail to run smoothly for a host of reasons, from incomplete analysis to inadequate hardware to company politics. Whether your company needs an operation-wide, integrated application or just enhancements to existing systems, Fox Wyndrum Associates will help your company avoid the "only-if's".
