philosophy and customer-advocacy positioning offers significant
advantages over our competitors. We hope you'll take the time
to look at the facts. If you do, you'll see why doing business
with Micromega makes sense.
Our large systems background and decades of experience enable
us to create cost-effective solutions that will serve you
for years. We provide proposals up front with realistic estimates
that we usually meet. We combine large-system software engineering
disciplines, watchful project management, and minimal maintenance
techniques into high-quality systems. And we follow a few
golden rules: tell it straight and doing business in a way
that leaves our clients feeling whole, even if we make that
occasional mistake or have differing opinions.
We know that delivering software is just the start of our
relationship. After installation, we'll be there for training,
support, advice and enhancements that maximize your ROI.
Benefits of Standardization
We've learned to build with standard software components that
are either developed in-house or licensed from third parties.
The advantage is that you don't pay to reinvent the wheel.
Our strategy puts your budget dollars to work where they do
the most good, namely: creating a glove-fit solution for your
business needs developing it in the shortest time possible,
sometimes with a phased implementation making custom software
that is as easy-to-use as off-the-shelf packages minimizing
the cost of maintenance By the way, one of our own components
is so good that we turned it into a commercial product. It's
sold to other developers and has received nine awards for
technical excellence and usability from developers and end
with Rapid Application Development
Watching software or a web site in operation makes it
much easier to spot wrong headed thinking or identify specific
improvements than working with visualization alone. So by
combining a top-down approach with our "stock parts" approach,
we can create prototypes that demonstrate results quickly.
It stops wrong-headed thinking before it becomes an expensive
Minimal Maintenance Strategy Will Save You Big $$$
The biggest, hidden cost of a system -- as much as 80% --
hits you AFTER installation, during the maintenance stage.
Over time, modifications and enhancements will be required
because of changing business conditions -- new opportunities,
government regulations, etc. So whatever you can do up front
to reduce maintenance costs returns big cost savings in the
future. We have developed proven techniques that reduce or
completely eliminate maintenance. During the requirements
and design phases, we'll ask questions to expose areas of
potential change in your business. Then we'll design and build
in ways that allow you to address most of those changes yourself,
without expensive programming. Finally, in those few cases
where additional programming is unavoidable, we can cut the
cost significantly thanks to our structured, component-ized
approach to software construction.
