GO TO HOW WE WORK PAGE
1

We get acquainted with the concept of the future solution and sign a non-disclosure agreement. The team gathers project requirements, studies relevant documents, and analyzes rival products on the market. At this phase, a preliminary project evaluation is made.

2

We contact the customer to confirm the project requirements. Then we create a technical specification and set a budget and deadlines.

3

We make the final evaluation of the project, make up a team, and schedule its workload.

4

We sign a contract for desktop application development. The team gets to work.

5

We design the architecture of the app, select libraries, languages, and tools, and start coding. The team identifies and eliminates bugs and optimizes the performance of the software. Customers receive daily reports on the progress. If necessary, the plan can be amended.

6

The team tests all the software functions. We check its performance under corresponding operating conditions. If necessary, the product is then modified.

7

After the tests, we finalize the necessary documentation. We can prepare manuals if the product is designed for in-house use.

8

When the development process is finished, customers can enjoy a free warranty period. During this time, the team will fix any bugs and defects in the product.

Reviews

"Integra Sources' extensive preparation beforehand helped give confidence to the client that they chose the right partner. Despite the time difference, they are able to stay in constant communication. Integra's dedication to the project has led the client to develop an ongoing relationship."
Christophe Baudia
CEO at GeoMoby
"The database has satisfied all scope requirements. The upgrades have improved communication and performance. Team strengths include accessibility and problem-solving and they are unafraid to research problems and develop their own solutions. Integra demonstrated strong management skills when they managed our servers for a week during an important trade show; we showcased our product at the event. Communication channels are always fluid and straightforward."
Eduardo Ruiz
Founder & CEO at Ruiz Aerospace Manufacturing
"Integra's team helped us clarify our requirements and change systems architecture to achieve the final goal. I'd say that the flexibility and enthusiasm of both engineering and management teams throughout the whole project were some of the things we value most in our collaboration."

Frequently Asked Questions

Read this information to better understand native and cross-platform desktop development.

How long does it take to create a desktop app?

The timing of a project largely depends on its specifics, complexity, scale, choice of components, and logistics. For example, a project audit can take 1-2 months, while AI-based software development usually lasts much longer. We always set realistic deadlines when preparing the spec and stick to the schedule at all project stages.

Do you test applications before handing them over to customers?

Of course! When building desktop applications, testing and debugging are mandatory steps. Our Quality Assurance Department will test the program on all required platforms. After the project is finished, we offer a warranty period during which we will fix any discovered bugs.

What about intellectual property rights?

The cession of intellectual property rights is legislated in our contracts. We also sign a non-disclosure agreement to protect any sensitive information. We will mention your project on our website and other platforms only with your permission.

Can I order your services if I don’t have a clear plan?

Naturally! Our team of qualified analysts will help you shape ideas into a concept, estimate the costs, pick the most suitable technologies, and work out an action plan.

What do I get after the project is finished?

After your desktop application is finished, you get a fully functional product, as well as the source code, technical documentation, and manuals. If required, we will also provide training.

What is a cross-platform application?

Cross-platform desktop app development allows writing source code that can be compiled for different operating systems with minimal changes. Programmers don't need to rewrite most of the source code for each app version. They only need to set up the build process for a specific OS. Such programs will run on Windows, macOS, and Linux equally well. Cross-platform desktop development is faster and cheaper than creating native apps for each OS.

What programming languages do you use?

We have experts competent in several languages, including C/C++, C#, Swift, Objective-C, Python, and Java. The choice depends on what functionality you want to implement in your desktop application.

What technologies do you use?

As a professional desktop application development company, we apply various integrated development environments (Xcode, Microsoft Visual Studio, Eclipse) and frameworks (Qt, .NET, Mono). We pick the ones most suitable for particular projects.

For what OS do you create apps?

We can make a desktop app for any of the most popular operating systems: Windows, macOS, and Linux.

What to consider when hiring a desktop application development company?

The key things to take into account are the domain expertise of the team and their experience in projects similar to yours. The company must not only provide clear cost and time estimation but also justify it in detail. Make sure you check reviews from previous customers and company ratings on Clutch and similar platforms. Also, consider the team's communication skills, as you want to be aware of how the work is progressing.

Who are your customers?

We develop projects for private enterprises and public organizations: small, medium, and large businesses, mining and manufacturing enterprises, startups, healthcare organizations, and enterprises engaged in other industries.
