ERP systems

ERP systems are to help your accounting, procurement, risk management, and other processes more effectively. Our backend developers ensure that your ERP system has the necessary features: efficient data management, security, permission control system, integration with CRM/HR/accounting systems or any third-party software provider, and more.

The Internet of Things 

The Internet of Things (IoT) can bring valuable insights to your business if appropriately configured. Our experts develop and fine-tune IoT systems to provide efficient communication between devices and the cloud, minimize power consumption, and store large volumes of data. We also apply big data and machine learning technologies for data processing.

SumatoSoft back-end development services

We provide both full-cycle software development and back-end development services as a standalone service.

Server-side programming

It involves developing the logic and functionality of a web application on the server side. Our areas of expertise cover such languages, like Ruby, Python, Node.js, and technologies, like Apache, Nginx, Puma and Passenger.

Database design and management

We create efficient and scalable databases for storing and retrieving data. Our backend developers are proficient in using both relational databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL and NoSQL databases like MongoDB or Cassandra. These services include data modeling, data access, and performance optimization.

API development and integration

APIs can be used by other applications to access the functionality and data of a backend system. Our team can create APIs or set up an integration with third-party services and systems.

Microservices development 

We break down a large, monolithic application backend into smaller, independent components (microservices) that can be developed, deployed, managed, and maintained separately. Microservers allow for greater flexibility and make updating and maintaining the system easier.

Scalability and performance optimization

Modern web applications like SaaS, IoT, and enterprise systems possess a strong requirement for the backend: be capable of handling increasing traffic and processing demands as the application grows. So we optimize database queries, configure and implement caching, and use load balancing and auto-scaling technologies.

Cloud computing

We deploy backend systems on cloud-based platforms such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. The deployment may include using managed services for databases, APIs, and other components and leveraging cloud-specific technologies such as containers and serverless computing.

Data migration and management

Sometimes, it’s necessary to move data from one system to another or from one format to another. So we help extract, transform, and load (ETL) data and configure data validation and error handling.

Backend testing and debugging

We test the functionality and performance of an existing backend system and fix any bugs or issues. The specter of testing includes unit testing, integration testing, performance testing, security testing, integration testing, and writing automated tests.

DevOps and deployment support

Ongoing support for the deployment and operation of backend systems. This may involve configuring and maintaining servers, monitoring performance, and responding to issues and outages as they arise.

Backend development services process

Requirements elicitation and analysis

We identify your business requirements and functionalities needed for the backend system development. Then our team determines the scope and objectives of the project and aligns it with you. The result of this stage affects the rest of the development process.

Database design and modeling

The second milestone is the database scheme. Our developers model the data relationships and structure and define entities, attributes, and relationships between them.

Architecture and technology selection

The system administrator and DevOps design the system architecture and identify the most suitable programming languages, web servers, and cloud providers. The choice complies with the requirements of your project.

Implementation of the logic and integration with the front end

The step where the coding starts. Backend developers write the server-side code and implement the logic and functionality of the system. They also develop APIs and integrate the backend system with the front end.

Testing and bug fixing

In this step, our QA specialists test the application to ensure that it functions as expected and that the integration of the front and backend went successfully.

Deployment and ongoing maintenance 

The backend system is deployed to the production environment and becomes available to users. Our backend developers provide ongoing maintenance and support, including fixing issues, updating the system, and monitoring.

System administration

It’s an optional step. We monitor the system performance, handle spikes in traffic, optimize database queries, and deploy security patches. The goal is to ensure that the system remains fast, secure, and responsive over time as the user base grows and the data set expands.

The system has produced a significant competitive advantage in the industry thanks to SumatoSoft’s well-thought opinions.

They shouldered the burden of constantly updating a project management tool with a high level of detail and were committed to producing the best possible solution.

Nectarin LLC aimed to develop a complex Ruby on Rails-based platform, which would be closely integrated with such systems as Google AdWords, Yandex Direct and Google Analytics.

I was impressed by SumatoSoft’s prices, especially for the project I wanted to do and in comparison to the quotes I received from a lot of other companies.

Also, their communication skills were great; it never felt like a long-distance project. It felt like SumatoSoft was working next door because their project manager was always keeping me updated. Initially.

We tried another company that one of our partners had used but they didn’t work out. I feel that SumatoSoft does a better investigation of what we’re asking for. They tell us how they plan to do a task and ask if that works for us. We chose them because their method worked with us.

SumatoSoft is great in every regard including costs, professionalism, transparency, and willingness to guide. I think they were great advisors early on when we weren’t ready with a fully fleshed idea that could go to market.

They know the business and startup scene as well globally.

SumatoSoft is the firm to work with if you want to keep up to high standards. The professional workflows they stick to result in exceptional quality.

Important, they help you think with the business logic of your application and they don’t blindly follow what you are saying. Which is super important. Overall, great skills, good communication, and happy with the results so far.

Together with the team, we have turned the MVP version of the service into a modern full-featured platform for online marketers. We are very satisfied with the work the SumatoSoft team has performed, and we would like to highlight the high level of technical expertise, coherence and efficiency of communication and flexibility in work.

We can say with confidence that SumatoSoft has realized all our ideas into practice.

We are absolutely convinced that cooperation between companies is only successful when based on effective teamwork (and Captain Obvious is on our side!). But the teams may vary on the degree of their cohesion.

They are very sharp and have a high-quality team. I expect quality from people, and they have the kind of team I can work with. They were upfront about everything that needed to be done.

I appreciated that the cost of the project turned out to be smaller than what we expected because they made some very good suggestions. They are very pleasant to work with.

The Rivalfox had the pleasure to work with SumatoSoft in building out core portions of our product, and the results really couldn’t have been better.

SumatoSoft provided us with engineering expertise, enthusiasm and great people that were focused on creating quality features quickly.

We’d like to thank SumatoSoft for the exceptional technical services provided for our business. It should be noted that we started our project’s development with another team, but the communication and the development process in general were not transparent and on schedule. It resulted in a low-quality final product.

SumatoSoft succeeded in building a more manageable solution that is much easier to maintain.

When looking for a strategic IT-partner for the development of a corporate ERP solution, we chose SumatoSoft. The company proved itself a reliable provider of IT services.

Thanks to SumatoSoft can-do attitude, amazing work ethic and willingness to tackle client’s problems as their own, they’ve become an integral part of our team. We’ve been truly impressed with their professionalism and performance and continue to work with a team on developing new applications.

We are completely satisfied with the results of our cooperation and will be happy to recommend SumatoSoft as a reliable and competent partner for development of web-based solutions

    Frequently asked questions

    I need to develop an application – where do I start?

    Many great techniques and approaches may help you to answer this question (you can read about them in our blog). Still, before starting any project, including custom software development, we suggest answering 3 simple questions — Why? What? How? ‍

    1. Why do you need this application? What are your business goals?
    2. What would you like to receive at the end? What is the outcome you expect?
    3. How will you do this? What options for implementation do you have?

    Once you answer them, create your vision of the application, and form your requirements for a software development company, you can contact us, and we’ll discuss your idea.

    I want to develop software. How much will it cost?

    Software development costs may vary depending on many factors, including but not limited to the following:

    1. a scale of your application idea (e.g., is it a simple two-pages website or a huge enterprise-level software);
    2. innovations required (will it require some extra research and development, inventions, etc., or use the well-known tech stack);
    3. software development company experience in the tech and business domains;
    4. software outsourcing rates.

    Each application idea is unique, and many factors will influence the cost of its implementation. That’s why we suggest our Clients get in touch with us and get the initial analysis and estimation absolutely for free.

    Why does my project require a Business Analyst?

    Business Analysis is the groundwork for every custom software development. It helps to understand the software potential, estimate possible risks and assumptions, and find the best solution and insights for the project implementation. The business analyst provides information, asks and answers questions, and ensures that the technical solution a tech team provides will meet stakeholders’ business expectations.

    What do I need to know before contacting you?

    SumatoSoft is a software development company created by a team of experienced managers, business analysts, UI/UX designers, backend and frontend developers, and QA engineers that have developed many software solutions (see portfolio of applications), from MVPs to enterprise software solutions. We know how to plan and implement your idea in the best way using the best practices in software development. And we can prove it.
