The Durable Process:

Maintenance Programming

Most firms are geared towards new development. This, of course, is understandable – but too often it means that long term maintenance of a software project is left to lesser skilled developers, or else passed from developer to developer. In some cases, this means that each developer just does the bare minimum before passing the problem on to the next.

Flexible Services to
Meet Your Needs.

Clients can ask for a set number of hours per month for our skilled programmers to work on bugfixes and upgrades – 40 is a common starting point. If you have a particular list of backlogged bugs, we can work on that; alternatively, we can be called as needed. This hour budget can be increased or adjusted as needed – we don’t lock you in.

You Set the Priority.

You can request that we focus on a certain area of the codebase — for example, front-end work like updating the UI for a new report, a new feature, or integration with a third-party system.

Predictable Costs, Reduced Technical Debt.

Our flexible pricing model lets us efficiently handle your needs while keeping your costs predictable – while steadily increasing your code quality and decreasing technical debt.

Thorough Testing.

We can test your application in different environments. Careful QA helps make sure that updates and deployments go smoothly, and that users with many different environments have a consistent, comfortable experience.

Not Sure Where to Start?

We can help you choose which areas of the code to rewrite or libraries to upgrade, so that you can get the most benefit from your budget. We’re well suited to this – we’ve done a lot of work with legacy apps, and we can get your app working exactly as it should be.

We Do Things Differently.

In our case, maintenance is our main service. We maintain legacy software, and we’re proud to do that.

“The folks at Durable Programming did an exceptional job recovering and updating our broken tool… Throughout the process they were responsive, patient, and communicative… We’ll definitely be a repeat customer!”
