Our Approach SAAR

The Tailwind Difference

Partnership

We consider each of our clients as partners. Beyond a mere vendor, we want to be your long term development partner – a true extension of your team, from conception to business analysis to UX, development, and deployment. Leverage our expertise in every area from concept to launch.

As your development partner, our long-term success is tied to yours.

A Team Dedicated to Your Success

Our team is constantly working to keep up to date on new technologies and development frameworks. Our advanced solution architecture, strategy, product, UX, and project management teams are based in the U.S., and much of our development teams reside in South America and Asia for true round-the clock global development.

Product & Outcome Focus

While most development firms can build whatever the customer wants, it takes discipline to realize that a sound product-oriented strategy brings order to feature chaos and predictability to other areas of your business. We proactively drive product planning and roadmap discussions to bring you a peace of mind – regardless of the type of application or business function it will perform.

Agile Process

Our Agile software development methodology enables software projects to be executed with less wasted effort, reduced cost, and on a faster overall schedule. We want you to “see and hold” versions of your software as fast as possible to garner early feedback from your beta customers.

So what is the difference?
