Our Approach

To do a great job at building any software solution requires a mixture of specialist skills from four key areas; business, creative, infrastructure and development. While many companies will claim you can mix these skills, deep expertise and understanding comes from specialisation. Would you trust your electrician to do your plastering and architect your next house? 

OBS brings to every solution experts in business, creative design, infrastructure and development. By adding in our post implementation support and help desk services, OBS is able to provide complete end-to-end solutions ensuring the highest quality result across every aspect of an implementation.

To ensure we continually deliver on time and on budget, OBS has developed a unique project process and development methodology based on the Microsoft Solutions Framework and the agile development process, Scrum. This methodology is known as 'The OBS Way' and integrates established guidelines of Prince II and Agile methodologies, into a robust usable process which we believe to be the optimum delivery platform for our customers.

As part of the worldwide Agile Alliance, OBS is at the forefront of agile development techniques which have helped us to continually deliver successful outcomes to our customers, on time and on budget.  Our agile approach enables customers to continually see results as the development progresses through regular iterations and builds.

OBS closely follows the principles of the Agile Manifesto being:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools; 
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation;
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation; and
  • Responding to change over following a plan.
Through our project process and agile development methodology, we are able to ensure great outcomes for our customers while being able to continually react to changing business needs.
