Our desktop application development services

  • Full-cycle desktop app development

    Our team accumulated ample expertise in Windows desktop application development and cross platform desktop app development. We engage skilled engineers, system architects, UX/UI designers, project managers, and QA specialists to create desktop apps from scratch or pick up projects at any stage. With us, you will make the most of your technology investment and create feature-rich, interactive desktop applications based on the latest .NET/JS stack and mature frameworks.

  • Third-party API integrations

    We implement custom third-party integrations that extend software functionality and connect disparate systems and data into one ecosystem. Our expertise grasps various integration technologies, including .NET, non-.NET applications, and APIs. We also develop APIs for your existing desktop applications, amplifying their value and interoperability.

  • Plugins and utilities development

    Creating a custom plugin is a great way to extend the functionality of your desktop application without altering it. This saves you development resources and allows developers to add customization and deploy new features more quickly. With custom utilities, we supplement your app with automation, data management, reporting, and other features, making it more powerful and competitive.

  • Project management

    We’re well-versed in project management and follow proven practices to effectively guide the development process from start to finish. Since each project has unique requirements, we work closely with you to define a plan from scoping through implementation. Our project managers provide regular updates on the progress and set up communication channels for direct and swift interaction.

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

  • 01


    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.  

  • 02


    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. 

  • 03


    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. 

  • 04


    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. 

  • 05


    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.
