Large complex projects require a very different approach and skill set than smaller projects. Things like sites with complex user systems, league table and complex ratings systems, large ecommerce sites and unique ideas for big sites which have never been created before all come under the ‘large site custom development’ banner. Fortunately SwankyApple has got lots of hands-on experience managing and developing very large projects like these. Our SCRUM development methodology combined with our LEAN project and company management sensibilities allow us to tackle projects of almost any size and scope. When you combine our project management experience with the fantastic design and programming talents of our team, you’ve got a recipe for hassle free development of even the largest and most demanding specifications.

One of the most significant challenges to large custom development projects is scheduling. In the area of software development (including website and web application development) it is not uncommon for large projects to run over deadlines by two or even three times their original estimate. We take this very seriously indeed and do everything within our power to minimize the risk of deadline creep. One of the most effective ways to combat deadline creep is to ensure a project specification has been developed by a seasoned consultant developer who has the experience to recognize and either mitigate or schedule for more complex portions of a project. Our development consultant team has thousands of hours of experience and have developed or overseen the production of well over 300 websites. That’s the kind of experience we can’t buy, but fortunately, you can!
Large development projects usually demand a quite different approach than smaller site developments. We’ll want to chat at some length about the goals for you project; it’s user demographic, competitors sites and overall objectives. Once we’ve got a good feel for your goals and potential challenges we’ll develop a comprehensive development specification which maps out the site functionality, once you are happy with this we move on to develop designs. It’s not uncommon for specifications and designs to be modified throughout development.
