Mobile App Experts

Through numerous client projects, Menlo has built a strong reputation for high quality iOS and Android application development. We build both native and hybrid applications for clients ranging from startups to Fortune 100 enterprises. Clients rely on Menlo’s senior development teams to build what in many cases is their entire mobile product from scratch. Other organizations have backend resources, but work with Menlo to benefit from our Mobility Practice to improve their time to market.

We leverage our years of mobile development experience to optimize:

  • Performance
  • Memory management
  • Backend integrations
  • Workflow
  • Advertisement integration
  • Backend analytics to ensure our clients have insight into how their mobile application is being used.

Many of our clients benefit from a hybrid approach to mobile development. Ionic and Xamarin are the leading technologies for hybrid mobile development, but if requested we can use other hybrid technologies such as PhoneGap.

User Experience Design

A well-designed user interface provides a direct path from your clients to your products or services.
At Menlo Technologies, we design experiences that incorporate well researched elements that will resonate with your users. We take into account best practices of visual design, usability, information architecture and interaction design to create excellent user interfaces. We collaborate with clients on the design, development, and deployment of software experiences that make sense, simplify life and spark innovation.

Our projects start with strategic experience design (UX) and continue through visual interface design (UI) and front-end development.

We research:
Our research brings your user’s behavior and preferences to life. We observe humans where they hang out. What is your customer going to do when he encounters your website or product? Menlo’s research on persuasion and human interaction, combined with common sense and user validation, helps us develop user experiences that feel natural and intuitive.

We put insights into action:

We develop concepts for innovation based on system requirements and what we understand about your audience. We create a grounded vision for the product using design principles to guide it through the design and build process.

We create information architecture:

Based on the goals set at the beginning of the UX process, our cross-functional team of designers and developers work together to iteratively design, build, test, and validate features that scale and evolve to meet tomorrow’s challenges. We conduct user-testing sessions and perform detailed analysis to transform data into actionable design improvements.

We launch and observe:

We continuously evaluate through analytics to refine your solution
and help identify emerging opportunities.

Testing & QA

Testing and Quality Assurance is a critical component of application development

It’s not an effort to tack on shortly before application delivery.

The Menlo Technologies QA/Test Practice reporting goes directly through our VP of Global Delivery.  We measure and monitor defect counts on a regular basis and automate this reporting using PowerBI and Jira.

Menlo emphasizes test driven development. Our engineering team is required to develop based on specific test scripts and to unit test all code prior to deploying to QA.

We work with clients to determine the appropriate QA strategy to use –manual, automated, or a combination of the two. Whether the test automation is tightly coupled with a DevOps release cycle depends on the effort needed and the maturity of the product or software technology we deliver.

Clients may engage Menlo Technologies:

  • Specifically for QA
  • Working as an integral part of the client’s development team
  • As part of a broader QA/Development team.
