Case Study


Delivering an advanced cloud computing portal, on-time & on-budget

PromptWorks was selected by a Fortune 500 company to develop an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution that would allow customers to provision cloud infrastructure in minutes instead of days and provide a significant competitive advantage over competitors like AWS.

Despite very aggressive schedules, PromptWorks was able to deliver the solutions the client needed on-time and on-budget. By employing an Agile process that allowed the client to review progress on a weekly or biweekly basis, PromptWorks was able to significantly reduce development time and story churn. Read More

Power your custom software with robust, modern technologies

Our Process

Better custom software development starts with a better process

Developing great custom software requires an approach that’s both collaborative and flexible. To accomplish this, we use a proven agile process.

Our process means we work week by week alongside you so that you will see new features as they are coded. We test as we go and have developers working in pairs on every aspect of your code. This is how we ensure on-time delivery of working software that will stand the test of time.

Discovery & Kickoff

We take the first few days to collaboratively plan and develop a strategy. We set up the codebase and test frameworks, and jointly generate a backlog of work for the upcoming phases.


Rather than disappearing for months while you wonder what's happening, we work in one or two week sprints, with your close collaboration and approval at every stage.


Our UI / UX Designers visualize user stories by creating wireframes, mockups, and prototypes.


Our Engineers implement the user stories and designs by building fully functioning code and automated tests.


Our team presents you with a working product, ready for you to test and validate before we iterate again.

Deployment & Handoff

We deploy your new production code to live traffic. Our engineers seamlessly hand off the project to your team, providing all the necessary training to make sure they have the resources needed to succeed.
