mthodology

Methodology

Over the last 10 years Rancon has developed a hybrid approach to delivering highly complex projects, on time and on budget. We use a combination of Agile (scrum) and waterfall delivery points to allow us to deliver better apps in less time, which we think benefits everyone.

Communication

Our project management approach is to include our clients in the process and share often, we believe that this ensures the end product is the very best it can be. The team uses a combination of cloud project management tool like Jira and Basecamp to ensure our clients are always the first to know about updates and progress in a project.

Platforms

Rancon is lucky enough to have some of the best mobile talent working for us, all with a strong basis in native iOS, Android and Windows development. After many years delivering successful mobile projects, our preferred technology is cross-platform tools like Xamarin, HTML5 (enterprise apps) and Unity 3D (entertainment apps).
