Stop Wishing. Start Doing.
It all starts with a single conversation. We have developed a proven process that helps identify and provide solutions to achieve your business goals. If you trust the process, the result is a clear road map towards a successful launch.
Internal Project Evaluation
Taking what we learned from the initial conversation, we have an internal discussion about the project between our designers, developers, and project managers. We create a list of outstanding questions and we compare components of your project to past projects.
After we complete our initial evaluation we present you with a recommended budget. This is a high level view of the project and an initial estimate created based on a comparison of successful projects of similar scope.
Our clients rave about our discovery workshop. It is an information-gathering and brainstorming process where we explore all features and options. It is meant to dig deeper into the details of what is really important to make your project successful.
In addition to having a better understanding of the project, the result of discovery is to create a project breakdown and a list of associated estimates to help us work with you to define how to best move forward. This is the first step in launching a product that viable in the marketplace.
Breaking the project down into stories allows us to group sets of features together. We can then create estimates for each feature set to help both parties have a better understanding of cost vs. value for each feature.
Minimum Viable Product
Having a breakdown of feature estimates allows us to work with the you to decide what needs to go into the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Comparing MVP features to available budget creates a product with the most value for you and your audience.
Design, Build, and Launch
We have worked diligently over the past 10 years to hone a unique agile scrum process and we built a project management system we call "Storm". A successful development project is a fluid combination of science and art that only comes to fruition with experience and expertise.

United Way approached Neon Rain to help them address potential issues with their website architecture that created a roadblock to increased community engagement. Not only did they need a better way for potential volunteers to engage them virtually but they needed a customized content workflow that matched their internal processes. We utilized Drupal as their content management system and worked with Metzger Albee on the creative side.
