Our philosophy for better web development

Independent Software in Maputo, Mozambique works according to a philosophy that we believe in. It’s a philosophy we bring to every website, mobile app or database that we develop for our clients. It is our way of creating quality software that is value for money and always exceeds expectations.

We don’t cut corners.

When we agree to build a website or a database, we build a proper one and not just the things in the project brief. We try to think one step ahead of our client, and come up with novel solutions to problems. Your software shouldn’t just work – it should work for you.

When we come aboard, we try to think of all the features that the product should have. Sometimes you don’t notice that it’s there: searchable database logs, secure password generation systems, responsive website styling, web pages that are optimized for search engines. We make sure that what you need is there, and more.

We keep abreast of technological developments, and all our software is built in such a way that it is possible to change technologies on the fly, because we understand that the project reality is not fixed.

We make a promise.

When we take on a project, we’re going to be on it from start to finish. When it’s live, we don’t walk away, but we’ll help you integrate your software into your company so that you derive the most benefit from it. Software alone isn’t a solution; its implementation into your workflow is. We bring past experiences and best practices to the table, so that our client benefits the most from having us on board.

We believe in cooperation.

You know you need a software solution for a problem, but you don’t know exactly which one. We make a point of sitting down with you to see how everything works. Keeping an open mind, we’ll offer alternatives and figure out what’s most cost-effective. We won’t sell you what you don’t need. We are not afraid of standing up to a client, when we believe that a different solution will yield better results in the end. When we take on a project, we invest it it – just like our client does.

We are proud of our work.

At Independent Software, we like to think of our team as craftsmen who take pride in their work. When we finish a product, and after all the polishing is done, we are always proud to put our name on it.
