Services of a company are most profoundly built to serve the customers. Customers, being the core reason for the growth and development of the company, needs to be based mainly on customer’s needs and requirements.


Building IoT ecosystem demands a new type of consulting approach, one that encourages an intense collaboration between domain experts and manufacturers and IT consultants. It needs to bring together the breadth of integration know-how as well as the depth of domain and device specific knowledge. It takes care of the entire software side requirement, and builds the end-user applications. It uses a structured approach and the following principles to create custom IoT apps for businesses:

  • Connect existing technology to build a secure IoT platform.
  • Create seamless experiences across platforms and channels.
  • Pursue continuous improvements.
  • Deliver a functioning IoT environment to collect data relevant to the business.
  • Analyze collected data for insights that can be used for decision-making


LeewayHertz started the process by having clients elaborate on their app idea or the business problem they are facing. Once it has been thorough understanding the problem, it began capturing all of the requirements in a Scope of Work document. Then when everyone is on the same page, its creative team will quickly produce an Interactive Creative Brief to demonstrate understanding of client’s application and showcase its mobile app expertise.


Once LeewayHertz have completed the profiling process, it then creates the Design Proposal. Design proposal covers all the discovery, design, and documentation for the client’s app project. It then commit to a fixed price for the project, at the end of which, the client will retain full ownership of the complete pixel perfect screen designs of their app solution, from the front-end to the back-end. As a part of this process, its clients get to work with the company’s award-winning user interface design team to bring the app concept to life, while documenting the complete technical architecture required implementing the app.


After LeewayHertz have completely captured the functionality and user experience during the Design stage, it provides a Development proposal with fixed cost for the Development stage. After receiving a sign-off on the Development proposal, the development team begins coding the entire app solution and sending the client periodic test releases of the app for them to install, experience and give feedback. LeewayHertz’s fixed cost includes comprehensive quality assurance, as well as submission the app to the relevant app stores, or facilitating distribution of the app within its client’s enterprise.
