Custom Software Development

Grow your business with the right technology

A client being hands-on as we map out together all the things their custom software needs to do.

Software is meant to be designed, not just developed

At Highland, we combine our passion for great customer experience with deep technical expertise to design and develop digital products that people love.

When working on your code and alongside your team, we're relentlessly focused on building software that delivers long-term results for your organization.

Working with Highland has elevated the creative process of our own internal teams, pushing us in a more strategic direction. We were very impressed by how quickly they were able to deliver the MVP. Compared to similar platforms on the market, Highland built a fast, competitive version that will give us an upper hand.

Discovery & Design

Product managers and customer experience researchers work side-by-side with our technical team to ensure we’re building the right thing.

We use rapid prototyping and ongoing testing to build-in learning and user feedback throughout the entire development process.

People-Centric Project Management

We find the product engineering strategy that fits your business and achieves your goals, providing the tools, resources, and processes to maintain a healthy pace of development.

Quick Wins

Our team is well-versed and experienced in Agile development practices. That means you can expect to see working software within weeks of development starting.

Transparent Teamwork

We value transparency in everything we do, including client collaboration. Depending on your needs, our team members can work face-to-face or remotely. Or you can work out of our sunny office in downtown Chicago.

When it comes to tools, we share Slack channels and Confluence pages with our clients to communicate clearly and frequently. We'll also embed you in the team cadence and rituals. (That’s right - we expect you to be present at morning stand-up.)

Quality Code & Continuous Improvement

We use state of the art languages and frameworks so that the stack is scalable and sustainable within your organization.

We deeply care about outcomes, so code doesn’t ship unless it’s gone through rigorous automated and manual testing.

The time to market for mobile apps has decreased markedly since Highland Solutions was first engaged. Their consistent communication, responsiveness, and ability to work within strict parameters justify the investment and make them a valuable partner.
