Software Development Proposal to Client

Proposal letter

[XYZ] is a software house that provides assistance to business owners and other small group owners. They are involved in the designing and developing of software for different purposes. After my graduation, I joined XYZ as an intern for a year but the experience I gained changed my internship into a permanent job which I am enjoying too much. We work for multinational companies as well as small business owners as every setup requires the working of software for a different reason.

Business owners are not aware of computers and how the software works, therefore, they pay us for our services. Every receipt of every sale, overall sale of the business, keeping up inventory are all performed through software installed on computers. Thus, they help owners in tracking their progress and also aware governments of the tax that should be paid by their businesses.

I always planned on setting up my own business as a software house as well as offering my services as a freelancer in the international world. It is important to get international recognition as it opens new horizons and allows you to step out of your comfort zone and meet the needs of people so different and so far from you.

Waiting for your comments.

Introduction

Software is defined as a set of instructions that helps the functioning of computers and software development is the process of creating, developing, designing, supporting, and deploying software. These software(s) are designed to help computers in carrying out their tasks efficiently. A computer itself is unaware of the program it needs to follow and depends on the software that programs it. Software is independent of hardware and is designed by humans. There are specific guidelines and standards that software companies are supposed to follow for developing software.

Software is designed with utmost care and precision to meet the requirements of the client and allow it to function properly. A few steps are followed while designing and creating software which is mentioned below,

Research

Before designing any software, thorough research is conducted by the software house to understand the viability of the product in the market. The functions and services provided by the software should be memorized to the developer to help consumers in getting benefit from software and also find it useful. There are many methods of conducting the research, it can be done through surveys or online portals. The process of software development starts after it has fulfilled all the required parameters of success.

Requirements

During the developmental cycle of the software, stakeholders agree on the requirements of users and specifications of the proposed products. They outline the scope, outline, and tasks of the developer and testing parameters to deliver quality products.

This requirement analysis requires a group of people for meeting the demands of people. They may include testers, users, project managers, and developers.

Design

During this step, developers design the model of software according to the provided instructions. Companies hire developers to provide them with certain requirements such as time, budget, team composition, method, and architectural design. A model of design provides the layout for testers to avoid flaws and delays in the project.

Implementation

During this stage of development, developers create code based on product specifications and requirements. Once the coding is performed, the product is deployed for the implementation stage and this model is used as a pilot version of the whole program to evaluate their performance matching requirements.

Testing

During this stage, the software is tested for proofreading to avoid bugs and viruses. The performance of the software is tested for evaluating its functions based on the requirements of the company.
