Benefits of custom desktop application development

Efficient performance

Desktop applications are more efficient in running resource-intensive tasks on end-user devices since they’re optimized for a specific platform and take full advantage of the available resources.

Better system integration

Using special hardware and network protocols requires a desktop software, service, or demon in order to run other applications. Desktop applications tightly integrate with local file systems and devices, ensuring better connectivity across various solutions.

Network independence

You don’t need an internet connection to run a desktop application as all functions can be accessed offline. It also means that your work won’t be interrupted by a lost connection – something that can happen frequently with web-based applications.

All-out customization

Desktop applications provide more tailored features and options for specific business needs. Less frequent updates give users more control over how and when they receive new features.

Our desktop app development process



When developing desktop applications from the ground up, we start with requirements gathering and understanding client needs and expectations. If you don’t have a clear vision of your app, we initiate the discovery phase, which involves market analysis, user research, and shaping the idea behind the product. Once the requirements are gathered, they're documented for later use during the design phase.



At the design phase, we create a blueprint for how your desktop software will work. Based on the requirements, we set our priorities for development and decide which features to include in the MVP. Our designers craft prototypes to test out user flows and different aspects of design before any code is written.



Implementation is where actual coding takes place according to product specifications. Our engineers choose suitable programming language, frameworks, and decide whether your desktop app needs modularity or plugin system. Based on the chosen tech stack, our team picks software development strategy and methodology and creates a detailed roadmap for every stage of implementation.



All code goes through unit testing, where functionality or modules are tested independently, followed by integration testing, where the complete product is tested as a whole system. Most of the time, we perform testing activities in parallel with development so that we can fix any problems on-the-fly. Once the main functionality is ready, we thoroughly test your desktop app’s usability and performance.



We complete our SDLC process with product finalization where we release your app’s beta version to collect feedback. The feedback gives us a hint on things we need to polish before your desktop application sees the world. Our team continues to work on product fixes and updates as needed.
