Shifting Perspectives® in Software Development

Bitbean has acquired a name for helping businesses grow exponentially because of our trademark Shifting Perspectives® methodology, exceptional teamwork, and Silicon Valley standard of tech excellence. Woven into our corporate DNA is the acumen and innovative thinking of the NYC Jewish business community, driving us to relentlessly raise the bar on what custom software can achieve for all companies who are striving to be industry leaders.

Shifting Perspectives® requires a different way of thinking. We’re mental tinkerers. All assumptions are left by the wayside.

We decry the accepted. Scoff at the formulaic. Reproach the processes. We are constantly shifting perspectives, seeing your business through many prisms, uncovering the complex interconnecting pathways that are hidden, yet determining factors in the results you achieve. We’re in a determined, relentless search for the enduring solution that sees around corners, peers deep into the future, and continues to operate effectively long beyond any rational expectation. The solution where your vision and reality ultimately meet.

The ultimate truth.

The heart of our business is teamwork

Teamwork isn't a buzzword.

At Bitbean, team structure is part of our ethics. We are very rigorous in our consideration of who should be a part of the team for your project. We don’t assemble a team ad hoc. Every team member is selected for their experience, expertise, skills and compatibility with the other team members. Every team member is local to our Lakewood, New Jersey office. No out-sourcing, whether in the US or off-shore. This creates a cohesive, smoothly functioning team that optimizes results.

Product Team

Breathing life into your product to improve or create a whole new one is what we do best. Through our Shifting Perspectives® process, we’ll build a solid foundation and product life cycle that matches your vision and unique business model.

  • - Establishing a Minimal Viable Product (MVP)
  • - Initial Scope for Custom Software Design
  • - Assembling the Design Team
  • - Research and Analysis
  • - Discovery Process: Evaluate Risks, Collaborate, Solve Problems

360-degree collaboration

Every step of the process, product, design and engineering work side by side in a constant give and take. By challenging one another’s ideas, by seeing the project from a range of perspectives, the team gains a 360-degree view of the entire project. Problems are identified, a range of solutions are shared, and the final solution that meets the exacting judgmental evaluation of all team members leads to results that often go beyond your expectations.
