Our Delivery Process

Our delivery process, HCDAgile, focuses on humans to determine the right thing to build and how to build it right.

Our Approach is HCDAgile

How Can HCDAgile Help Your Enterprise?

Imagine this: You’re an IT manager. Your business stakeholders are asking for a digital solution, and they are counting on you to deliver it.  All that’s left to do is design and develop a product that provides maximum value, in minimal time, within the allotted budget.

…and oh, wouldn’t it be great if your employees, customers, partners actually liked it and used it?

You need help. But why choose 1904labs?

Every company says they have great people, are easy to work with, provide value, and on and on.

We have something else: a well-defined, repeatable process, created by experienced process engineers, and improved over three years of practice by teams of talented and collaborative Agile engineers and human-centered designers.

HCDAgile focuses not just on technology, or on your business goals, but on the humans — your users — who ultimately determine whether your product is a success.

Human-Centered Design Practice

Get your competitive edge with a partner who you trust. Together, we can help you make innovation happen.

HCD is an integral part of the 1904labs HCDAgile process, and ensures that the specialized software solutions we design and develop are useful and usable by intensely focusing on users, and designing around the wants and needs at all stages of the the development lifecycle.

  • Improved user / customer satisfaction

Agile Delivery Practice

The Agile methodology is a core component of our delivery process. It allows us to be adaptable while focusing on providing continuous improvement and rapid implementation. The iterative nature of Agile gives us the ability to react to the evolving needs of people, processes, and technology. Following the key tenets of agile, we firmly believe in:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan
