Adactus Software Development Benefits
Adactus development processes are underpinned with proven, best-practice methodology, which delivers the following benefits to your organization:
Accelerated Application Planning
Using industry recognised patterns and practices and reference architectures, Adactus development teams can quickly determine the best structure for an application, reducing the time needed to conceptualise and design the application.
Accelerated Application Development
Over time our expert software developers have used and built reusable code components for common development challenges. This enables Adactus developers to shorten the time needed to develop tactical components of the applications and instead focus on tailoring the applications to specific business needs.
Accelerated Application Testing and Debugging
Adactus reusable code components and frameworks and established patterns and practices have already been tested and debugged, significantly reducing the overall amount of code that needs to be tested and fixed.
Improved Application Management
Adactus software architects design loosely-coupled applications which are easier to manage and can evolve over time. Our best-practice approach to application architecture ensures lower application maintenance costs and lower costs to update and enhance applications.
Lower Cost of Maintenance
Modular based design is a core element of Adactus application architecture. Our experience has shown that modular based applications are easier to build and easier to maintain, as each part of the application can be changed without affecting other areas. This design coupled with a focus on customer based configuration means decisions can be made at runtime, and not design time, whether a specific piece of functionality should be available or not.
Improved Application Performance
Experienced software developers, using industry recognized best-practice ensures that Adactus applications perform and scale and are more stable and reliable. Our proven track record for developing high performance and scaleable enterprise systems with Microsoft technology is recognised by our customers and partners.

Adactus recognises that different organisations need to work with software partners such as Adactus in different ways.

Our collaborative approach also extends into all our test services. This ranges from a joint approach on acceptance and functional compliance testing through to our extensive expertise in performance testing services. We don't just want to tell you where the problems are, we also want to help you fix them! Our highly trained software development team will help you review code performance, database performance, application security, front-end application efficiency and cross browser compatibility.

For customers who require support out of business hours, we provide a telephone based service with access directly to an on-call engineer. Working in conjunction with our hosting partners, we can offer a full fault finding and fault resolution service.
All your support requests will be logged in Jira, our web-based incident management system, and this will be available to you online to track the resolution of your request.

Slow Web Site? Crashing Web Site? We Can Help!
Poor performing web sites frustrate visitors, reduce visits and conversion, and even harm your Google rankings! So if you are having problems with your current web site or application, Adactus services can help identify, diagnose and solve poor performance, as well as make recommendations for the future.
So ask yourself;
- why does my web site crash intermittently?
- why do some of my web pages perform slowly at peak times?
- why does my web site require so much hardware to run successfully?
- is the web software efficiently written?
- how can I change my web application to better handle peak load and what is my headroom?
Using specialist tools from partners such as Site Confidence and Application Performance, we have the know-how to monitor how your web site is performing and gather the necessary evidence to pinpoint the root cause of the problem. In collaboration with the original developers, we are able to delve into the software code underpinning your web site, and look at the configuration of the hosting environment to determine where the problem lies and how to solve it.
Our services have saved customers thousands of pounds in lost custom, and more importantly, saved them from embarrassing site outages. In addition, we have been able to squeeze every last drop of performance from the available hardware, optimizing sites so that they run on less servers hence saving you money without reducing the overall customer experience.
