Who is Who
Dedicated developer. According to your requirements we choose a suitable candidate as a remote team member. This person can be a CS-Cart Middle/Senior developer, designer or DevOps engineer.
Dedicated team – Team of developers with the exact skills you need. According to our experience the ideal team for CS-Cart development consists of:

Who needs it?
A dedicated development team is the best choice for:
- long-term projects that require a full-size team with various roles;
- clients, who can provide a load of 100 hours per month for developers;
- large projects which should be completed in a short time;
- development service providers, who have a stable flow of projects and need reliable manpower to complete them with consistent quality;
- complex CS-Cart projects, where support must be provided by the insiders, well-familiar with the system.
Depending on your project, a manager proposes an effective development methodology (Waterfall, Agile, etc.). All tasks will be prioritized, and divided into iterations or sprints.
The manager will present you the results of each iteration (sprint).
Usually we follow these methodologies:
Waterfall. It is a sequential design process. This means that once each of the eight stages (conception, initiation, analysis, design, construction, testing, implementation, and maintenance) is completed, the developers move on to the next step.
Agile. The Agile methodology follows an incremental approach. Developers start off with a simplistic project design, and then begin to work on small modules. The work on these modules is done in weekly or monthly sprints, and at the end of each sprint, project priorities are evaluated and tests are run.
Scrum. We use Scrum for huge CS-Cart projects. It is an iterative and incremental agile software development framework for managing product development.
Kanban. The Kanban methodology helps manage product creation focusing on continuous delivery and not overburdening agile software development teams.
In addition, you can monitor the development progress in the project management system.
Project Management System
For the effective management of the development process we use JIRA.
JIRA is Atlassian’s issue and project tracking tool. To put it simply, JIRA allows you to track any kind of unit of work (be it an issue, bug, story, project task, etc.) through a predefined workflow.
As the owner of the project you will be able to participate in the process, for example, to observe and comment the problem. If your company uses a different control system (YouTrack, RedMine, Teamwork, BaseCamp, etc.), our experts will get adjusted to your system.
