Our focus is on transportation and/or dispatch management systems where jobs and/or vehicles must be tracked with interaction from both office and mobile workers.

At FTI Groups, we specialize in understanding the needs of our clients and translating those needs through collaborative design into high availability, fully functional tools that improve efficiency in the business operations of our clients. From the initial discussion, through the database design, screen mock-ups, specifications and wireframe stages of our process, we work to ensure client satisfaction by providing recommendations in areas where our expertise can serve to improve upon customer's plans. We provide clients with full visibility into our development status and work closely with stakeholders to establish confidence in tools before they are released. Our pricing is highly competitive and can be fixed for project elements to avoid cost overruns.
Your first, commitment-free step with us is an in-depth discussion of your business needs, and whether those needs may be best served with custom software development.
If you determine that custom software is needed, we then spend time document the specific requirements that your new application or system needs to satisfy: what specific features will be implemented, what platforms will be supported, and how your new software will be used in real life.
Before launching into a build process, we carefully review each detail of our requirements documentation to make sure we are building precisely what you need- no more, and no less.
Once the detailed requirements of your system or application are determined and agreed upon, we map out a detailed design plan. This includes technology specifications, user interface mockups, and system-archticeture blueprints.
Now that the hard part is out of the way, we get down to writing actual code, setting up production server environments, integrating with existing technologies, and whatever else is needed to get your new application or software system up and running. Because of the time and care put into "preliminary" planning, we're able to do this as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Finally- the FUN part! The ultimate goal of this process is to bring you and your business to the next level of efficiency and productivity. Your new application or software system is now ready to roll, and we are ready to provide whatever ongoing support you need.
(And, of course- don't forget to call us for your next big project...)
...we believe transparency builds trust and is a key factor in developing long term relationships.
We also understand that clients expect quality, timeliness and adherence to budgets. It is our mission to support client needs in a way that is equal or superior to our customer’s expectations.
From programs for groups to software application development, FTI Groups stands ready to leverage its record in delivering quality solutions on time and on budget as we provide value to you, our next client.
