Supply Chain Consulting

Causometrix is so much more than just a software vendor. The founding partners have spent decades partnering with customers through their supply chain transformation journeys.

Custom Business Applications Design & Development

Besides transforming your supply chain and implementing planning solutions that meet ALL your business needs, Causometrix also specializes in the design and development of custom business applications. The Causometrix Software Development Process:

  1. Business Process Reengineering: will make you think of "why" you do things they way you do things and will help you redesign your processes for optimal efficiency
  2. Scope Definition includes high-level project plans, schedules, cost estimates, and resource planning. We will select the technology stack best suited to your business needs.
  3. Business requirements get translated to a High Level Design (HLD) that provides brief descriptions of the system design, architecture, platforms, services, data flows and structures
  4. Design & Prototyping: design documents, mockups and prototypes will give you a good idea of what to expect in terms of process, data flow and functionality
  5. Pick the Waterfall or Agile software development methodology based on your business needs. Waterfall is the traditional approach whereas Agile will allow the requirements and solutions to evolve as you step closer to the desired state (respecting budgets and timelines)
  6. After exhaustive testing from an integration, functionality, performance, code quality, and security standpoint, the application will be promoted to a production environment with detailed documentation and knowledge transfer
  7. We also provide hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support services if required
