Our Approach

Get More. Pay Less. It's that simple.
The digital landscape is changing at a rate we could have never imagined

Today’s digitally empowered and geographically distributed customers are radically connected, hyper-informed, and always on. To survive and thrive in this customer-centric, data-driven economy, enterprises need to rethink the technology infrastructure on which they are building and deploying mission-critical cloud applications and move to a modern platform. Samtech helps companies compete in this rapidly changing world where expectations are high and new innovations happen daily.

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works.”

– Steve Jobs

Our Approach

Instead of responding “yes” immediately, we take the time to understand what you’re trying to accomplish, going far beyond the typical process with questions of budget and timelines.

Every project is unique, but they all start with one thing in common. We want to know everything: where you started, where you want to go next, what you value. The only way to solve a problem is to understand it from every angle. Luckily, we’ve got a proven process to quench our insatiable curiosity.

  • Discovery

    During the first meetings we will listen to what your requirements and goals are and what your customers expect from new product. The only way to solve a problem is to understand it from every angle.

    The project scope and requirement documents are output of this process. On the back of these meetings our team will put together a solution proposal.

  • Define Scope of Work

    The objectives of the system and details about the components involved are categorically defined and their role and relationships among the components are spelt out with the highest level of clarity.

    As next, a cost-benefit analysis is carried out to help you prioritize which features should be built-in from the start and functional extensions will grow in specified timeline. As an output the detailed specification is elaborated in order to ensure you get what you need.

    This helps us ensure we have understood exactly what you need before we build it.

  • Design and Develop

    Before we move on to building, we undertake a review involving all major parties to double-check that all goals and requirements are being met. The design document is the output at this stage. The application is developed as per the design documents.

    The developers work towards completion of the sprints. Each functional change of the application is progressively, placed in the code repository with access to the client. Our product software development approach has Agile as its DNA. We combine well-proven Agile practices with Design Thinking to ensure the customer remains the central focus during the product development lifecycle. Our preferred Agile methodology is Scrum, which is an iterative and incremental approach to software project management.

  • Testing and Deployment

    We define the initial DevOps processes as a backbone for CI and CD. At first place is important to consider communications between application components, API inter calls and the clients with presentation layer. Design all for performance, scaling and sufficient testing. The scenarios when development, testing and deployment are all done on cloud is the most advanced we would like to achieve however it always depends on project and usually ends up in different variations.

    Our goal is to be close to scenario with full-fledged “Continuous Integration Testing (CIT)” that runs through automated tests, with performance testing seamlessly executed as well.

Trusted Partnerships

Whenever we talk about the national and global brands we work with we talk about ‘partners’ and ‘collaborators’, because that’s what they are to us. They are more than just customers. We want to build long-term trusted relationships and to work together to deliver our creativity, skills and results consistently. The objectives we work towards are ours as much as theirs; the results we achieve are shared; and we celebrate our successes together.

Why? Well, because we have the agility, motivation and skills in technology we do; and we are small enough to care deeply and to establish genuine and meaningful relationships.

Our Advantage

Size does matter. In our case, it’s a strength. Our agility, our strength-in-depth as a team and our location (small city in north Slovakia and without the price tags of major cities!), means that when it comes to flexing our capacity to the demands of clients, we’re well-placed. We have an experienced team who are capable of operating globally – some of who have been doing this for nearly 20 years. It means we’ve usually been there and done that when a partner needs a problem solving.

We at SAMTECH believe the only way to effectively succeed in business is to build not only partnerships, but trusted partnerships with our partners. Being an indispensable TRUSTED PARTNER means when clients have a need, even if you don’t always have the solution, it’s your phone that rings.

Our Most Valuable Partners

IBMIBM® is our long-term partner over 15 years. We are involved in internal projects with world wide scope. Large international teams teach us working in mission critical development and deployment. High ranked systems (their indispensability and global coverage) and and are place where our role and participation are important and valuable. We participated on many specific development positions either in transformations of legacy systems to new technology or developing brand new solutions deployed to IBM cloud infrastructure. Members of our team and their key roles in development, design and system architecture are proof of our knowledge, taste to learn and team spirit what we always put at first place.

SoftgateWith Softgate® with have partnership more then 20 years. For DACH region we together develop system from category of DMS (Document Management System) with primary focusing on document storage and retrieval. Over the years system architecture has been changed few times and the system found tens of satisfied customers in region. Collection of plug-ins for external systems, set of extensions like Lifecycle management, workflow, form scan recognition and auto identification, OCR, various storage hardware can fulfill most of customer’s expectations. Additionally, there is always the possibility of implementation of customer specific needs and adapt system for any business scenarios in reasonable time and budget frame.
