Evolve IP works with 3rd party developers on a frequent basis that are familiar with writing apps to the backend platform. If customers do not have the resources internally to write a specific productivity-enhancing application, Evolve can recommend a developer. We first ask that customers provide a rough sketch of what they would like from the application as a ‘requirements documentation’ to help shape the conversation.
