How We BuildYour Success

  • Client Consultation and Requirement Gathering

    We kick off by meeting with your team to understand your specific needs and goals for the Shopware plugin. This phase involves gathering detailed requirements, identifying pain points, and defining the desired features and functionalities. It's essential to set clear expectations and establish a project scope.

  • Proposal and Scope Definition

    Based on the gathered requirements, we create a comprehensive project proposal. This document outlines the project scope, objectives, timelines, budget, and deliverables, ensuring everyone involved has a shared understanding of what's to be developed.

  • Design and Architecture Planning

    Now, it's time to plan the plugin's design and architecture. This phase involves defining the database structure, system architecture, and user interface. Scalability and maintainability are key considerations, following Shopware's best practices.

  • Development and Coding

    With the design in place, our development team starts writing the code for the Shopware plugin. This step includes coding the backend functionality, creating user interfaces, and implementing any custom features. Rigorous code reviews and testing are critical to ensure the plugin functions as intended and adheres to Shopware's coding standards.

  • Quality Assurance and Testing

    Our team conducts thorough testing to identify and rectify any bugs, errors, or performance issues. This includes unit testing, integration testing, and user acceptance testing, covering compatibility with different Shopware versions and third-party modules. Your team also participates in testing in a staging/development environment to ensure the functionality meets your expectations.

  • Documentation

    Proper documentation is essential for the project and future admin users who may need to use the plugin. It explains the plugin's features, installation process, configuration, and any custom code or APIs used.

  • Deployment and Integration

    Time to go live! This step involves integrating the plugin with your existing website, ensuring seamless functionality without disrupting the site's overall performance.

  • Client Training and Handover

    We provide training to your team on how to effectively use and manage the plugin. This includes demonstrating configuration options, explaining best practices, and addressing any questions.

  • Ongoing Support and Maintenance

    Post-launch, we offer ongoing support and maintenance services to address any issues, provide updates, and ensure the plugin remains compatible with new Shopware releases or adds any new functionality you request.

  • Final Review and Feedback
