Project rescue

Whether it’s a mobile, web, or software development project, our project rescue specialists will get you back on track.

If your project is failing, it’s time for project rescue

Over our 18+ years of operation, we have witnessed the challenges faced by many businesses. Whether they worked with a local development partner or an offshore provider, the problems are generally universal.

More often than not, they didn’t get what they asked for, or deadlines were missed. When this happens, costs skyrocket, time to market is extended, and you risk losing your competitive advantage.

If any of the following sounds familiar, then it’s time for a software project rescue:

Failure to deliver

  • History of broken promises
  • Unexplained delays and technical debt

Poor communication

  • Lack of visibility on progress
  • Lots of jargon and slow to respond

Poor planning

  • No understanding of business model
  • Solution not aligned with business goals

When projects continuously go over time and over budget, you’re usually dealing with an agency that lacks the necessary resources or processes to scale on demand. If you find yourself constantly paying good money for subpar work that’s riddled with technical debt, it’s time for a project rescue. 

Our project rescue team get you back on track

Whether it’s a software development project or a web project rescue, our proven project rescue processes start with an in-depth analysis. We work closely with you to analyse your objectives, requirements and the progress made.

We run an audit to identify the root cause of the problem and form a practical plan with milestones and timelines to get your project back on track.

From discussion to deployment and beyond, our processes remain transparent providing you with complete control. You get 24×7 access to a customised dashboard in our job management system (Jira) to view real time project status, priorities, and progress. 

Common triggers for rescue projects we’ve worked on include:

  • Failure to deliver on time or at all
  • Significant technical debt, system glitches, and incompatible plugins
  • Complexity beyond the capability of the developers working on the project
  • Failed integration with third-party systems
  • Websites that failed to address core business goals/ the solution was not fit for purpose
  • Websites that weren’t user-friendly and failed to convert visitors to customers

Delays happen for a variety of reasons. Whatever the cause, we put you back in control and back on schedule.
