We help clients build, maintain, and enhance custom software and web applications

Softlogic Systems helps reputable businesses across North America achieve outstanding business results by enabling them with highly functional, aesthetically pleasing, and exceptionally usable web applications.

Our Company

Softlogic Systems was founded in 2007. Softlogic Systems endeavoured to build a custom software development company that applies their love for technology and passion for business in a way that helps other companies improve their quality of service, competitiveness, and profitability. In just three short years, Softlogic Systems has helped over 40 unique businesses in several different vertical markets realize their goals through the design, development, and implementation of innovative web-based applications.

Our Approach

Softlogic Systems was founded on the principle that technical finesse, business strategy, communication, and plain old hard work can be intertwined to deliver cost-effective, successful business systems. By employing a customer-centric process, we are able to gain an intimate understanding of your business needs and project requirements to deliver a cost-effective, usable solution. Accompanied with our agile development methodology, we prioritize critical features and employ a phased approach to optimize value and time-to-market.

Our primary focus is on helping clients by lowering operating costs and increasing revenues through the strategic application of tailor-made solutions. We are experts at prioritizing critical features and implement a phased approach to maximize value and time-to-market.

Our Development Process

We begin every project with a human-to-human consultation (via phone or in-person meeting), where we gather some preliminary information about your business, the challenges faced, and how we can help. We then provide our clients with a "ballpark estimate" of project scope, cost, and time.

Once the project's feasibility has been established, how we proceed depends on the size and complexity of the project. We employ two different approaches to address projects of different nature: Fixed Price + Scope Approach, and Time-based / Agile Approach.

Fixed Price + Scope Approach :

During the Requirements Engineering Phase, we take an in-depth look at your current business processes and project requirements, and how we can address problems or bottlenecks with a custom web-based solution. Once we have an intimate understanding of your project, we delve into the technical requirements and build what is essentially the blueprint of your system. This includes the development of a functional specification and usually, wireframe mockups or prototypes to help communicate the desired system behavior. Throughout this process, we work closely with you to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that the end deliverable will meet expectations.

Upon completion of the Requirements Engineering Phase, we will deliver a Statement of Work that clearly outlines the project scope, cost, and timeline. Upon sign-off, we proceed with the development and testing per the functional specification and prototypes.

Time-based / Agile Approach :

For larger, more complex projects, it's difficult or impossible to know all of the requirements and intricacies of a web application development project to a fine-grain level of detail. For these reasons, establishing an accurate feature scope, budget, and timeline that will yield a cost-effective and usable system is equally as difficult. Oftentimes, we see clients who oversee certain business requirements that are pivotal to a system's success, or think they need costly features when in reality, they might not.

Our Time-based or Agile Development Approach involves designing and developing the most business-critical features (i.e. "must-haves") first, and then developing the "should-haves" and "nice-to-haves" after they are complete. By taking an iterative approach and continuously designing, developing, and testing a feature, then reassessing priorities and repeating the process, the end product will be delivered in less time, for less cost, and will be more effective.

Our Tools of the Trade

Our passion for technology and dynamic nature of the industry dictate that we continually learn new things and apply them where they can best serve our clients. Our true talent is in the ability to use the right tool for the job. We are not glued to a single technology and have diverse experience with many different platforms. We view technology simply as a tool.

Our most frequently used technologies

  • PHP/MySQL (including CakePHP, SilverStripe, WordPress, and other PHP frameworks)
  • Ruby on Rails
  • HTML5/CSS3
  • Javascript/AJAX (jQuery)
  • ASP.NET (C#)/SQL Server
  • iOS (iPhone/iPad)
  • Web Services

We also have extensive experience with

  • Payment processing and PCI compliance (PsiGate, Moneris, Global Payments, Eigen MiraPay, VersaPay, Beanstream, and PayPal)
  • Cloud hosting platforms (Amazon and Rackspace)
  • Content Distribution Networks (CDN)
