Red C is one of the UK's leading app development agencies – we have been been building market-leading apps since 2007 (our apps were some of the first to hit the App Store) and advanced enterprise web systems since 2002.
We have repeatedly refined our processes over the years so that they consistently run like clockwork, and have stayed ahead of the curve with the latest innovations to make sure that we continually push the boundaries of technical possibility.
Our UK-based developers are among the best in the business. Clients often approach us having had a bad experience with an offshore team and with Red C you won't experience any of those issues. Our development team is always available in-person or via phone/online within UK business hours (and out-of-office hours where required), will report back regularly on progress and will go the extra mile to ensure every project is completed to the highest-possible standard.
They will also work on site with clients if preferred.
We find this by far the best way to achieve the optimal results – the developers understand the subtleties of projects because they get to know our clients and their working practices first hand.
The Red C team is committed to creating innovative and effective digital solutions that provide genuine long-term value to our clients and their customers. We would love to discuss your project with you to discuss how we could bring it to reality.
You will always receive a warm welcome at the Red C office, which is next to the Silicon Roundabout in Shoreditch, East London. Our staff are renowned for their friendly demeanours and clear communication skills – plus we don’t employ commission-based sales personnel, so when you talk with one of us you’re speaking directly with a highly experienced team member.
We are a friendly and approachable team who love meeting new clients and taking on technical challenges.
With over 200 Red C apps in the app stores, it’s highly likely we’ve built something similar to your idea before. This enables us to build apps very efficiently which are cost effective without sacrificing on quality.
Our processes are transparent to our clients from the start to finish of every project – using online project management tools so you that you can track our progress live.
We invest a significant amount of time in research and development so that we are sure that we are using the very best available technology at all times.
Realistic objectives are established from the outset, which we will meet – on time and on budget.
In discovery, design and development our standards are consistently high.
We always go the extra mile to ensure our clients’ projects exceed their expectations.
We listen to our clients alongside always making sure they are updated on all challenges and progress.
At the discovery stage, we give your idea the 'stress test'. This involves asking you a number of questions to understand your business goals and explaining our process of helping you achieve these goals.
In this stage we define the scope of the project, we will identify all the possible features and functionality of the app. We will then work with you to prioritise them into 'Must Haves', 'Should Haves', 'Could haves' and 'Won't Haves'. This will help you identify your MVP (Minimum viable Product).
Every project is different. At the 'Define' stage we plan personalised project milestones, providing you with a timeline of delivery and confirm the functional specification of the project with you.
Starting with design research, the foundation of all decisions, we start to explore the problem you wish to solve in greater depth. Following the research, we start to ideate and come up with design solutions to the problem, which are tested and iterated upon. This results in an interactive prototype showing key journeys and screens for your product.
Our team of developers then build the product based on the visual design provided to the agreed specification. Progress is shared regularly according to the agreed milestones. Client feedback is recorded after each milestone and incorporated into the next build/release.
Our Project Managers are trained in Agile Methodology which we have found is the best approach for the majority of our projects as it provides clients with the flexibility to re-prioritise features as business needs evolve.
We also manage projects using the Waterfall methodology. Although less flexible in approach, Waterfall provides more certainty regarding features and project costs.
Rigorous testing is key to the success of your app, ensuring development progresses quickly and that the finished product is robust and reliable. Red C’s testing period include the following stages:
Red C will develop a personal launch plan with you. We manage the submission process to both the ‘Apple App’ or ‘Google Play’ stores and offer support plans to suit your project needs.
Will will also deploy your backend into the live hosting environment, were it will be monitored and kept up to date with all the latest security patches.
Provide us with your contact details and we will contact you shortly.
