PRINCIPLES

Our Client’s Success is Our Success

Data Bakery concentrates on maximizing a client’s business value. If a client succeeds in attaining their business goals, Data Bakery succeeds.

A Firm, Not a Shop

Data Bakery is a firm focused on treating each client like a partner rather than just a short-term opportunity. We care about our client’s business as if it were our own.

One-Stop Service

Unlike "code shops", we don’t force clients to painstakingly assemble their own solutions. We supply clients with all the services they need to form a complete solution.

PLATFORMS

Data Bakery builds mobile, web and desktop applications. Through our network of partners, we also provide hardware solutions, such as embedded software and hardware design and manufacture.

Data Bakery focuses on building products – carefully crafted and engineered systems – that address your business needs.

CONTINUOUS INNOVATION

We believe that innovation is a key ingredient in the success of any business.

Data Bakery applies over a decade of startup experience to each project in order to give it the edge you need to succeed.

A THOUSAND WORDS

Traditional software development tends to be based on producing exhaustive written specifications. Usually, this process results in a document that is never read and quickly outdated. Instead, Data Bakery focuses on visual mockups and Agile development.

Mockups depict the system, as it will be delivered, in a visual form that is readily understood. Agile development focuses on regular, iterative discovery of value and insight, which greatly reduces the risk and cost typically associated with custom software development.

PROJECT TERMS

Data Bakery offers fixed-bid proposals whenever possible. We believe that clients need and deserve a predictable pricing structure. Each proposal is structured using a proprietary system that makes it simple to add and remove features "a la carte".

DELIVERY

We believe in the Agile approach to software development. Once development commences, we deliver working software on a regular basis – usually once a week – beginning as early as possible.

Since building software from scratch involves many unknowns, we expect and plan for changes in each project's feature set. Weekly deliveries provide early insight and our proprietary proposal system makes project scope adjustment simple and straightforward.

Project: Cobalt

Client

Schultz & Associates, P.C. (GRSPC)

Need

GRSPC came to Data Bakery with an idea for replacing their antiquated docketing system. (A legal docketing system can be thought of as “Outlook for legal matters.”) The firm needed to seamlessly replace its existing system with a new, state-of-the-art solution – one that could also become the foundation for a future SaaS (Software as a Service) offering.

Solution

Data Bakery engaged GRSPC in a design process, working closely with firm lawyers and staff to develop a comprehensive understanding of the problem and to produce mockups accurately conveying the scope and functionality of the new system.

During development, we delivered intermediate but functional versions of the system on a weekly basis. Periodic adjustments to scope ensured the system would appropriately address GRSPC's business goals.

Once the system was complete, Data Bakery conducted all data extraction, transformation and loading required to smoothly transition GRSPC to the new system.

Project: Createabid

Client

The Graphic Company (TGC)

Need

Develop a print-job estimation system as a SaaS web application, both for internal use and for sale to other print shops.

Solution

When Data Bakery began work with TGC on Createabid, we started with TGC's intricate estimation spreadsheet that, over 10 years, had accumulated multiple sheets and hundreds of complex formulas.

Data Bakery guided TGC through the design process to mock up a web application that would meet their goals and reproduce the functionality of the spreadsheet.

Data Bakery developed the system according to the final version of the mockups, delivering weekly intermediate builds with source code and making adjustments along the way. Development included diligently reverse-engineering the TGC's spreadsheet and re-implementing the core estimation logic in a web application context.

Upon completion of the solution, Data Bakery assisted with and consulted on hosting the application, integrating web content, and integrating with billing systems, web analytics systems and advertising management platforms.
