Internally, we use distributed source control. We have customers who use git, Mercurial, and TFS. We have written devops tooling that interfaces with all three. Our developers use Windows, MacOS, and Linux, according to the project's needs.
We are happy to provide ongoing support whether it's in your datacenter or ours. We also work with major cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
If you already have a team working on your software project, but you want to make sure the project succeeds, we offer a Check-Up service. This is a comprehensive project review that culminates in a set of key recommendations for any corrections you need to make. Because executing software projects in our core business, we can dive as deep as you'd like, going through your project artifacts (requirements / schedule / source code / issues log) to find any emerging problems or to suggest remediation for problems you already know about.
By nature, custom software projects come in any form you can imagine. Here are some types of applications we've built more than once:
Increased shopping cart size and conversion by creating a frictionless browsing experience for customers and seamless ERP integration. Highly customized to each customer's backend integration needs.
Produced and consumed web services for all sorts of purposes, including SOAP / REST / raw WCF / custom styles. Flat file import and export of XML, HL7 versions 2 and 3, XLS, PDF, tab-delimited text, CSV, and more.
Increased efficiency and improved PCI compliance by building a payment portal with tight backend integration. Improved customer experience by adding a self-service option to view and pay invoices.
Created modern web applications to replace MS Access apps, Excel spreadsheet "apps", PowerBuilder apps, and other legacy systems. New systems streamlined workflow and increased scalability.
Transformed the customer experience from a text/paper interface to an online interaction. Increased conversions by guiding the customer to products that fit their exact requirements.
Increased efficiency of remote work force through communication and content distribution web sites, with pricing tools / marketing tools / secure file sharing. SSO integration for internal users and standard credentials for external users.
Streamlined builds / deployments to multiple environments including the coordination of database and web application updates across multiple servers for minimal downtime during updates, and auditing for every deploy to every environment.
Created a seamless B2C customer experience across an a wide spectrum of consumer devices. Tailored user experience using both mobile-optimized web sites and native mobile apps.
Pushed the boundaries of technology using Bluetooth low energy profile in Android, aggregation and processing of sensor data, on-device image processing, gesture recognition, and RFID.
Communicated with DNA sequencing machines, custom printers, urinalysis machines, alarm systems, and custom hardware / firmware.
Although we are not a dedicated security firm, cryptography, vulnerability testing, website security and PCI best practices are competencies we've built through necessity. Security by design is always stronger than patchwork remediations that are applied later.
We have a diverse customer base and learn from every one of them. Our business experience includes healthcare practitioners, healthcare devices and technology, insurance, manufacturing, marketing, higher education, semiconductors, automotive, construction, payroll services, security services, cosmetics, wood products and virtual receptionist services. Most of our customers are medium to large companies where the ROI for custom software is clear.
In a perfect world we prefer to be involved early in the planning process and love working directly with business leaders on business process. In reality our customers call us in at all stages of the project lifecycle and for a wide range of roles. You may need an 11th-hour project rescue, an initial prototype for a new idea or code forensics of a past project. Sembit is not a good fit for cookie-cutter projects, like a WordPress site or a canned eStore. Our customers call us when there’s something challenging about their project, and they need a team to get the job done anyway.
