Do you want to automate a task? Are you a startup with a commercial idea that will benefit a particular segment? Or are you looking to make life easier for your client by re-engineering your existing software?
At STEP TECH, we first focus on understanding the outcome from the mind of our client and whether custom software is the solution. We then collect the specific requirements of our clients and document it. From the outset, our team of software developers envisions the software design and how it functions. Because once this is clear to the developers, then it is all a matter of using their programming skills to build on the requirements collected and develop the prototype.
This prototype is shared with the client to further close in on our client’s requirements. At this point, it is relatively easy for the client to explain what they want. Often it takes certain modifications we alter the requirements document accordingly, rework, and come back with a modified version. We repeat this process until our client says yes. Even after the final product is ready, we remain available for periodic feedback.
Software design is as important as software development. Since it is the user interface that appeals to the eye, we ensure that we design the software to make the interaction enjoyable.
Why consider STEP TECH for software outsourcing?
With more than a decade’s experience of handling numerous clients and developing well-designed custom software, our team has learned to understand the requirement with fewer interactions and hence save the clients their precious time wasted in to-and-fro communication.
At STEP TECH, we ensure hassle-free delivery of custom software just as you want it. You have to contact us to see the magic.

Frequently Asked Questions
We can assist you in breaking down the software development into all the necessary steps required in managing it as a project that is conducting cost analysis, assigning team roles, establishing milestones. We can also identify similar projects that are already live for comparison.
An idea usually sounds promising at first. But before delving into developing it, of course, one would like to know whether it is technically feasible and an estimation of how much it will cost. Following are the steps that we undertake in the test phase:
- First, we have an introductory meeting with our client and collect all the necessary information without going into the details. We go back to the office, discuss the practicality of the idea in the light of the information available, and decide on a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. If ‘Yes’, we first forward you a nondisclosure agreement.
- Once we have all the relevant details needed to understand the idea, we schedule an appointment for a detailed discussion.
- During this discussion, we find out more details and develop the draft of the feasibility. If this draft does not satisfy you due to any complexity, we recommend you to go for a paid feasibility to conclude.
Why another software? What need does the potential software application fulfill? What exactly do I want to accomplish with the software? If there are similar software applications already available, what significant value will my software add? These are some critical questions you must answer before you decide to spend your resources in developing the software application.
Although we respect your technical background or experience, you do not need to be tech-savvy to do that. Just contact us, and we will gladly help you get started.
Well! It depends on the software application you are considering. We must sit with you to define the project scope and an initial estimation of the budget. Usually, it takes about a month of the development process to define exact timelines based on the milestones decided.
If you are not satisfied with the way things are turning out during this phase, you can intimate us and withdraw from the project without spending a dime.
Will a project manager be assigned to coordinate on my project?
Will this person be available throughout the development process until the finish?
Of course. The project coordinator will serve as a focal person in providing guidelines, maintaining clarity, and streamlining the development process.
Being in the IT industry for more than a decade, we know that without ensuring security and safety, there is no deal.
Security: We assign a team to your project, and all team members have already signed a contract that binds them to maintain secrecy and transfers the intellectual property of their work. Similarly, the agreement we sign with our clients binds us to maintain secrecy and transfers the ownership of our work to the client. Hence our client is completely in charge. As an additional option, we also offer to allow one or more developers to be available after the project has been delivered.
Safety: Data is always maintained on our client’s server. Any work in the process may be on the developer’s computer, but as soon as the code is produced it is stored in the client’s system. We always prefer Google drive to store all confidential files and discourage transfer via e-mail.
STEP TECH always strives to adapt to the latest technology available in the market. For software development we utilize the following:
Cost differs from project to project and depends on many factors that include project scope, duration, and issues that arise during the development process.
