Received nothing but great feedback

"We are very happy with the site so far and have received nothing but great feedback. Thank you for all of your hard work and patience through our web design project."

The website is pretty much bulletproof

"It works and looks great, and it was completed on time and on budget. The service has been fantastic after launch. I honestly have nothing but good things to say about Neon Rain."

They find the proper custom fit for you

The difference to me was they could do as much as we wanted or keep it as simple as we wanted. I didn't feel like I was being sold a particular package. Not only can they design and build in any platform, but they also do it correctly and efficiently.

Work with U.S.-based developers who are at the top of their (software) game

Outsourcing overseas would compromise our ability to deliver our best work. That's why you'll find our entire development team here in our headquarters in Denver, Colorado - constantly training on best practices, coding standards, and workflow methodologies.

Robust Project Management

Our team of experienced project managers use a customized project management system to track every aspect of your project, from task allocation and resource planning to quality assurance and delivery. By using the right tools we're able to stay on top of project timelines and budgets, mitigate risks, and identify potential issues before they become problems.

Development Framework

PHP MVC frameworks help us create robust and elegant minimum viable products (MVP) quickly. This means you can solicit feedback sooner rather than later and get to market sooner. It’s completely open source and able to be managed by any developer experienced in working with PHP frameworks.

Keeping your best interest in mind

We've spent the past decade refining our unique agile development process until we perfected our proprietary form of Agile Scrum. It focuses on delivering scalable, quality software with speed and flexibility while reducing most of the waste normally seen in software development.

What's it like to work with us?

You should know that communication is kind of our thing

Our motto? 
Listen first, sell never

Your project is an investment. Our job is to help you weigh your options and make your best choice. Not pitch you “the thing we do.”

As fluent in "human"
as in tech-speak

Integrations and 301 redirects? We translate the jargon (unless you speak the language). So you always know exactly what we’re working on. And why.

Known for lightning-fast response times

You get a dedicated project manager for the entirety of your build. And you can expect to hear back from us within hours (but often more like minutes).

What to expect

Follow the agile scrum process we've perfected over more than a decade

That's how you get scalable, quality software with speed and flexibility while reducing most of the waste you typically see in software development


Define your vision

We start with a unique discovery process to help establish a clear picture of what success looks like. This process allows us to explore your ideas, brainstorm new ideas, and map the requirements and functionality needed for success.

We'll help identify the risks, recommend a tech stack, and then come up with the scope of your minimum viable product together.


Design a solution

With a strategic architecture plan in place, we'll usually create UX/UI wireframes and mockups of key areas so you can visualize the main components and ensure we're on the right track.

Develop and iterate

We develop each app feature using agile scrum methodologies. That means code review, quality assurance, internal acceptance, and a feedback loop every step of the way. So you can provide input throughout the entire process.

Get it launched

Your web application goes live! We'll be right there to *cheers* and support you through the launch. We can even host it.

Maintenance mode

And then it's on to maintenance mode. Where we continue to add and enhance features and make adjustments that create more value for your company.


No, we won't charge you for every email — and other A's to your Q's

Since every project is truly unique, the range varies based on the complexity of the project. We can tell you that we've developed custom web applications ranging from $10K to $500K. 

With such a large range, we understand this may not be helpful. That's why we've come up with a process where we briefly discuss your project at a high level and then come up with a recommended budget.

Don't fret - this describes almost everyone. Even if they know what they want, it usually changes as they get user feedback. 

We have processes in place to help you figure out what you need, and we provide advice, options, and best practices.

This is precisely why we like to use Agile methodologies. It provides a framework to keep the roadmap flexible.

Don't worry; we speak "tech" and "human." And we are pretty good translators too!

We pride ourselves on making things easy to understand without making people feel belittled. But we can also hold our own when speaking with technical people.

Once we better understand the requirements and the features, we will recommend technologies that best fit your needs.

Yes, we've built very simple to massively complex platforms. Give us a ring and we will tell you more.

Similar to a general contractor (GC) you may hire to build a house, the experience and expertise of that GC will be evident in the final build for decades.

They will know the best plumbers and electricians; they'll be able to manage who is doing what, and overcome dependencies like making sure the drywall is up before the painter shows up. Plus, they'll ensure everything was done to code so that you feel good about your investment.

Building a web app is akin to building a house, but the floor plan is continually changing.

For example, suppose the database isn't architected well. In that case, your app may feel slow or sluggish because the software has to go to multiple places and connect too many dots to get the information it's looking for, like a delivery person that didn't plan their route ahead of time.

Or if your web app requires a dropdown list of US States, and instead of creating it in one place as a function and referencing that block of code each time you need it, they copied and pasted their code in each file when they needed it. It may seem inconsequential until you realize they forgot Hawaii in the list, and instead of editing one file to fix it, they have to go through the code and change it in 29 places.

This is actually something we dealt with after taking over a project. A 5-minute fix turned into a few hours because we had to redo some of the code to ensure it followed best practices.

Almost anyone can sling code, but not all dev teams are created equal.

Yes, we can and often provide ongoing hosting for applications we build.

Hosting fees vary based on what you need. Some projects can run on a virtual server, whereas others may require load balancing, database replication, etc.

Yes, you'll have a Project Manager and will speak with them often. 

They may bring in designers and developers on calls with you to clarify functionality but in general they will work with you to turn your requirements into actionable tasks and then work with the team to make sure the output matches what you are expecting. 

It varies based on the project's size, scope, and complexity. It can take weeks to months.

For most projects, the Project Manager will schedule a weekly call to update you on what we've accomplished, what's next, and get clarification if needed.

We also use an online communication tool we use daily that shows you what we are working on, have discussions, share assets, and allows us to assign tasks to you if we need something. 

We have multiple ways of keeping the lines of communication open.

We either split the payments into milestones or we work from a deposit model where we will ask for a certain amount, work through it, and have the deposit replenished as needed.

The method is usually dependent on the size and complexity of the project. 

Regardless, the payments are spread out.

Yes, but some projects require a mobile layout for the front end and some don't. 

There are many cases where the web app would never be used on a mobile device and other cases where mobile is the primary method of access.

Technically, a web app is also a website.

"Websites" usually refer to marketing-type websites with reasonably static content to provide information. They are pretty simple in comparison to web apps.

"Web apps" usually refer to more complex interactive systems that accomplish a purpose. For example, think about Facebook, Airbnb, Redfin, Gmail, or Travelocity - they are all accessed through a web browser. Yet, they are more like tools or platforms that allow you to perform a function than just providing information.

Yes, we can and often do. Given our experience with APIs, we have integrated with platforms like Quickbooks, Oracle, SendGrid, Twilio, etc.

Yes, we often provide ongoing services for web application projects where we work with you monthly to determine updates to existing functionality or add new features.

The first step is to schedule a no-obligation call with us to determine if your project fits within our wheelhouse. If we aren't a good fit, we will tell you.

After we've discussed your project and asked a bunch of questions, we would go back and come up with an overall recommended budget and an initial budget we feel would be enough to create version 1 (MVP - minimum viable product).
