Our Creative Process
90% perspiration, 10% inspiration... as Thomas Edison said. You don't have to be a super genius to get results, you just need a process for working out the details, and then the diligence and discipline to stick with it.
Of course, competent and experienced help might accelerate your progress.
Enter Endertech.... we've done this before, a bunch of times, and so we've developed processes that have proven themselves to get reliable results.
We work in rapid design and development cycles we call "Sprints", and in between each Sprint is a review session with you. Rapid work and lots of client interaction is important to maximize productivity and creativity.
Multiple rounds of QA commence to ensure products look and operate as we intended them to feel.
We deploy each Sprint's product as appropriate and prepare to measure the results.
We now validate our design choices by measuring and analyzing various metrics. We are ready for new learning.
We begin every Sprint
open to new learning.
Clarity and open-mindedness form the basis for accomplishment.
With an understanding of where we are, and focused on where we want to be, we conceive ideas and prioritize action items.
Starting with our top priorities, creative, analytical, engineering, and business minds collaborate to design balanced solutions.
We skillfully implement leading technologies. Frontend designers, backend developers, and QA managers breathe life to the plans.
