Web App Development
We’ve got plenty to offer in the world of app development. Whether you need planning, definition, development, testing or post development support, we can help. We won’t dive right in without the right preparation, either – we’ll assess your requirements, understand what is right for you and give you the best advice for moving forwards. Then, we’ll help you develop solutions that help you achieve your goals.
We’re not your average web development agency either. With custom and bespoke software and design, we make sure that your solution fits exactly what you need, and we won’t give you a cookie cutter answer to a unique problem. By focusing on the UX of your solution, we can help to ensure the success of it, and by using outsourced development resources, we can keep costs down while still providing a top-quality service.

How we do it
While every solution is personal and bespoke for you, we follow an agile process that has some key steps.
We first work with you to gather all your requirements of the project. This helps us understand the desired final output and the key objectives to be met. We’ll then assess all available resources, including any wireframes, user journeys, designs and Software Requirement Specification documents.
Create a project plan
Poor planning leads to poor performance, which is why we make sure to plan everything carefully. Our plan showcases the milestones we’re aiming to achieve and the overall timelines for the project. Usually, we follow agile methodologies, but we can adopt other methods where preferred or required by your business.
Tool selection and environment setup
Our engineering team are awesome. They’ll look at your business to make sure we’re using the right tools for the job, aligning what you’ll benefit from best with your core objectives. Then, they’ll create the different environments required, including staging and pre-live.
Development and QA
We use a test-driven development (TDD) approach, which means we create user story cards for each individual piece of development work. Once the development is done, each user story is tested automatically, and manually by our QA team. We can share this with you too, to make sure you’re happy that our results pass User Acceptance Tests.
This is the part where we merge the development code into the main branch, where possible. We always ensure there’s a way to roll things back if needed, and we follow Gitflow in combination with other CI and CD tools, meaning we can provide continuous integration and delivery.
The final QA
After we’ve developed and completed the web app, we give it all one last test to make sure it’s of the best quality. Our QA engineers go through all the agreed devices and browsers, using different scenarios, to ensure everything’s working without any bugs to get in the way.
Launch and post-launch support
It’s time to go live! We’ll make sure your live server is secure, and optimised for the best performance possible. Then, we’ll provide training and ongoing support on a monthly retainer, making sure your applications are constantly looked after and can grow whenever you need them to.
Prepare for launch
We’ll make the final tweaks to the tool settings and conduct a peer review where another solutions engineer will check the setup of the test against the test plan, to make sure that everything’s as it should be. We’ll let you know when this is done so that you can launch the experiment, and from there, you can start gathering your results.

Working with EchoLogyx has simply changed the development lifecycle of our website. Their experienced A/B testing developers and QA engineers have significantly increased our efficiency
Farhan HussaineCommerce Director, eSpares
I’d 100% recommend EchoLogyx – they have really sort of raised the bar of my expectation, of how you should work with developers and also their efficiency of completing the project
Lucy CollinsUX Consultant, Web Usability
They come to me saying, this can be done better. This proactiveness is what I most like about the EchoLogyx team. They have got a strong QA team as well so that nothing goes out live without going through a thorough QA

Our experience of Echologyx is resoundingly positive. They’re very thorough and detailed. We’ve got a great working relationship with our optimisation managers.
