Making the right possibilities happen with our software development services

At the core of our software development services, we prioritise business improvement. Our approach begins with identifying the specific problem, rather than fixating on a particular technology or predefined solution. Our dedicated team collaborates closely with yours, adopting a technology-first strategy to overcome software challenges, address resource requirements, enhance quality, manage integrations, bridge growth and transformation gaps. Think of us as your trusted partners throughout this journey.

Our forward-thinking process

We make informed decisions through every step of our process to ensure our software development services align with your business’ goals.

Analysis and planning

To make the right business and technology possibilities happen, we begin by looking closely at where issues lie. By acting as a hands-on team that gets involved with your business, we understand not only what problems need to be solved, but also where you want your business to go, and the role of your software and systems have to play.


Using what we’ve learnt, we define and detail the best way forward to transform problems into solutions that drive your business forward. We then discuss these with you so that an agreed set of solutions and a timing plan are recommended.

Design and prototyping

Our UI/UX experts get to work, creating a hard-working software design blueprint that is tailor-made to your requirements. This is designed to be as user-friendly as it is effective while at the same time effortlessly working with your existing systems. You’ll be presented with a full overview of the design, so you can see what it’s going to be like for yourself.

Software development

Our developers roll up their sleeves and bring all the research, planning and designing to life. They’ll create a software solution that meets the exacting specification and requirements to not just solve your tech issue, but help move your business forward. This part of the process can take different forms, either with everything being delivered at once, or using a stages approach, called a sprint, which sees work divided into smaller short-term projects.


We test, test and then test some more to make 100% sure that your new software works just as we’ve promised and ticks every box when it comes to quality, useability and reliability. This is the job of our QA engineers who begin their testing during the initial development process and don’t stop until software has passed every one of their stringent checks.


Now given the green light following testing, the software is made ready for deployment in preparation for being handed over. From an app that needs launching on the relevant app stores to users, to the staged rolling out of a complex software system requiring integration alongside your existing technology, we make deployment a seamless process.

Maintenance and updates

We don’t walk off into the sunset after your new software solution is up and running. As we’ve said, we’re here for the journey, which is why you can rest assured we’ll be on hand to offer post-deployment technical support which includes ironing out any minor problems that can pop up from time to time as well as perform updates as and when required.


One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to technology stacks, even for full stack development projects. We recommend the most suitable option for your software development project, choosing from the latest technologies to ensure a solution that is secure, scalable and has the flexibility to meet your future needs.

Full stack development services

With our full stack development services, we become your trusted partner throughout the entire development journey. From conceptualisation to deployment and continued analysis, we're here to ensure your project's success. Whether you're seeking to build a web application, mobile app, or a complex software system, our holistic approach ensures that all aspects are expertly handled.

Engagement models

Learn more about our engagement models, and why Propel Tech could be the right solution for you:

icon resource

Dedicated team

Got a series of projects, but don’t want to hire permanent staff or can’t find the right people with the right skills? Then this is the model for you. Our team will become your team. You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to use our team resource as you would your full-time employees, changing tasks, requirements and scope as different projects take priority. This gives you the ability to have the right technology skill sets for your business needs always on hand. Ideal for Agile Software Development, which allows you to continually review and refine software.

icon time

Time & materials

This engagement model is ideal if you’ve a small project, but it’s not well-defined, as Propel Tech’s involvement can be split into smaller phases dictated by a fixed cost or time. Working in this way gives you the ability to assess each phase and on its completion, decide if you require our continued involvement from our team or have the skills and availability to move the next phase in-house. As such, Time & Materials is not recommended for ongoing needs and as you will not have a dedicated team, turnaround times are naturally longer.

icon fixed price

Fixed-price fixed-scope

We’d recommend this choice if your software needs are easily defined and unlikely to alter or evolve. Working as part of your team, we’ll specify your software requirements, then once agreed, we’ll give you a guaranteed solution delivered with agreed functionality – all within a set timescale and budget.

icon hybrid

Hybrid model

This gives you the best of both worlds – a dedicated core team for on-going projects that require development and maintenance, together with additional experts ready to come in if needed for influxes of work or when one-off projects suddenly rear their head.
