Software Development | Precognox

Software Development

You have the vision and we have the full-cycle custom software development expertise. Our main software development services are specialized for data and text mining and analytics.
Beside this we can help you design, develop, deploy, and manage next generation software products for the web that match your unique requirements and drive the value of your business.


Professional support from day 1

We start Quality Assurance activity in the specification writing phase by reviewing and giving feedback to the editor of the functional specification. Our Senior developers and Architect provide their input in terms of planning.

Alternately, we can jump in at an even earlier stage with experienced Business Analysts who can help define your ideas in the form of a software solution.

We are always there for you. We can help you avoid expensive dead ends.


Real time feedback

We follow the Agile approach, typically in two-week sprints, which enables the formulation and achievement of efficient sprint goals, as well as adds flexibility to change management. We support rapid testing of the current version with continuous integration methods.

As a result, you are able to try out the system in its current state from the very beginning of the development.


Full transparency

Cloud based task management and the reporting tool (JIRA) provide a full picture of the task hours managed in the current development cycle and joint editing of the Backlog. The test cases and the results of their runs are also transparent to customers (TestLink).

You can work with us as if we were part of your own team.



Our experienced test engineers automate the test run (Selenium) for the test case of stable functions, ensuring the rapid release of subsequent software versions coupled with stable quality.

You can implement new functions while maintaining the stable operation of previous functionality.

Several members of the QA team are Certified testers.



Vendor interoperability – You can easily have other vendors continue what we have started. We deliberately use industry standard solutions to help you keep your options open.


Relevant expertise

We are experts at preparing upgradeable software. The key to facilitating the integration of future changes is that we pay careful attention to software architecture and quality from the very outset of the project.

This allows you to easily and sustainably add new features to the software as you go.



Our experienced architects plan the system in a modular fashion and, using a code review mechanism, keep the functionality in the appropriate software layers (generally following the MVC model). In the event that restructuring becomes necessary, we achieve it through refactoring.

This way, you only need to make changes to the relevant “blocks” of the software, and can even add new ones.


Code quality

Code analysis is automatically run both on the front and backend. The result is then used to improve code quality in daily development. We keep Unit test coverage of common component codes at 100%.

Our developers hone their skills on a continuous basis, supported through in-house workshops, our own professional Meetups, and even as regular conference speakers.

Getting code quality right from the very beginning means quicker, easier changes in the future and lower overall costs for you.


Extensive experience

We are Java Enterprise Edition experts with experience deploying Java based projects since 2002.

With over 80 years of combined experience in Java development, our development and architecture team of nearly twenty-five experts is available to serve your IT and business needs.

We know what we are good at and we also aware of the areas where we have less experience. It is for the latter that we involve reliable partners, meaning that you only have to deal with one partner directly to get the complete solution you need.


Up-to-date technologies

Keeping track of the most recent trends and technologies is one of the cornerstones that enables our team to deliver products of various levels of complexity.

Ahead-of-the-curve solutions of Java technologies extends the useful life cycle of your software, giving you the most protection against future changes.
