There’s no shortage of ideas to pursue or new technologies to learn, but you have limited time and resources – and your organization may be new to agile development. To accelerate and innovate, you need to increase your custom software development capability.
Small Footprint helps transform your capability so that you’re able to deliver new products to your customers faster. Collaborating with your entire organization, we bring IT and business together with a mature agile process and practices.
We establish clear roles and responsibilities for all participants and stakeholders, and use training sprints to align our processes and cultures, as we share knowledge and best practices. Together, we create engaged and motivated teams while significantly accelerating product development.
As the business need for new software continues to grow, it’s stretching your internal team’s capabilities to the breaking point. Your customers are demanding new products and features, but your teams are too busy maintaining existing systems and they don’t have all the necessary expertise.
We’ll help you put a plan in place for how you’ll meet the demand. By providing a fully functional scrum team, we’ll help you scale your capabilities and fill in the gaps in expertise. Then, we’ll help you operate and support the systems we build.
You can expect to see positive results very quickly without it consuming your management time. You’ll be more responsive to business needs, building functionality faster and more efficiently, and your team will be happier and more energized.
You have ideas for an innovative software product or solution and need help delivering it to market. Your high-level product vision must have a well-defined strategy in order to bring the rest of the organization on board.
Small Footprint helps you evolve your ideas into an executable strategy. We’ll focus on user experience (UX) design and use lean startup practices to quickly validate, gain feedback and improve. We’ll use technologies and delivery practices that let us experiment and quickly adapt to new insights and shifting priorities.
You’ll have a sound strategy for a differentiated product, based on cutting-edge technology. With each step forward, you’ll be confident you’re on the right track and making a good investment.
We envisioned a new interactive online experience for North State customers. Small Footprint helped us translate our marketing strategy into an elegantly simple and highly adaptable website that invites and engages our target audience and supports our customers in a way that feels just right. It couldn’t have happened without Small Footprint’s outstanding ability to collaborate with us and our partners.
Taking your concepts and ideas and working to define a product strategy is the foundation on which winning products are built. We use a variety of techniques and practices based on you and your needs. We use cross-functional workshops, competitive analysis, customer research, journey mapping, mock-ups and rapid prototyping.
Together, we define the product vision, definition, goals, timetable and costs for budgeting. We then build a product roadmap, with requirements, prioritization and a technical solution to make your vision a reality.
As an agile software development partner, we offer tailored agile coaching to foster learning, process improvement and agile transformation.
You have the big picture in mind and now you need to work out the details. Whether it’s solving a complex problem, modernizing existing technology or creating something new, we help you generate insights and think creatively to clarify and expand on your vision.
We use a variety of techniques to elicit information efficiently and thoroughly, and we’ll engage stakeholders across your organization in the process. We’ll create workflows, wireframes and mockups. We then define user story requirements and the technology solution. Lastly, we quantify cost so you can budget and prioritize. You’ll get internal alignment and all the artifacts you need to start sprinting ahead.
Your customers expect a great user experience from software products, and anything less will negatively affect customer satisfaction. For new software, we begin the journey by creating user personas, workflow diagrams, wireframes and mock-ups. We’ll also create a Style Guide. For enhancing existing software, we may conduct customer interviews or surveys to gather feedback.
Once we are going, it is a process of rapid experimentation and delivery. We let feedback from real users guide our direction. By integrating user experience design with continuous delivery and adaptive architectural styles, we can quickly release and try out new design ideas and refine the product. You’ll be able to change direction as you discover what your customers want.
We provide you with fully functional agile scrum teams that are tailored to your specific needs. You chose between a dedicated team or a flex team, or a combination of the two. Either way, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how little management time we consume.
Agile engineering gives you results early and often. We ramp up quickly, with Training Sprints that align our processes and cultures and level-set expectations. We establish a rhythm of continuous progression and refinement. We get work done quickly and we share ideas and foster learning that we hope will help you achieve your goals.
Each professional on your Small Footprint team is trained to think in a business context. Whether your needs are front-end, back-end or mobile, each team member keeps your goals and objectives in sight – and your users and customers in mind.
Our Teaming approach provides you with all the processes and capabilities to accelerate your development. You’ll be faster and more agile than you ever thought you could be.
After making significant investments in your software product, you need to keep it running smoothly while you continue to gather feedback and deliver enhancements to your customers.

With our infrastructure services and support, we create the optimum infrastructure for your software. Our capabilities include infrastructure management, application management, incident management, database administration and release management.
In the past, releasing software has often been a painful and time-consuming process. In order to incorporate feedback and optimize your software solution, you need a fast way to deliver frequent releases.
