Sustainable software through UX Engineering

Architecture meets aesthetics

Understanding the dos and don'ts of frontend technologies is vital to get challenging user interface designs up and running. We help to integrate design and engineering into your development process. We also implement your presentation layer for .NET, WPF, UWP, WinRT and Angular or deliver software artifacts for HTML5/CSS, XAML, Java or other technologies. Find out how you can benefit from our interface development services.

Agile towards success


Agile software development processes and methods form our everyday work. For this reason our user interface design and development activities accompany an overall iterative and incremental approach. Benefit from our experience with e.g. SCRUM and be inspired how user interface work items can be incorporated into sprint planning and coordination. Gain experience in mutual projects about how low-fidelity prototypes or high-fidelity spikes accelerate the identification of user stories and simplify estimation and time-boxing tasks.

Our engineering services follow proven und tested patterns of modern software development. In agile development processes such as SCRUM the MVVM pattern helps us to work in parallel with your development team for maximum efficiency. We ensure adequate code quality with automated unit testing.
