Our History

New Standards was founded in 2006 as an R&D unit out of Stanford University, and many of our current team members are MS and PhD graduates from Stanford. In 2008 we were awarded an Innovation award from Google, opening doors for us to many great clients and allowing us to expand into some exceptional opportunities. From those early years of existence onwards, the highest standard for technical quality and innovation is our consistent driving motivation. Since then, we have won other awards, including a prestigious W3 Gold Award and Impact15 awards and nominations.

Our Process

Typically, a client approaches us with an out-of-the-box idea requiring a team of people that can handle a high degree of technical complexity and innovation. Our expertise is to take this idea from its raw, conceptual form and turn it into software that is functional, robust, scalable, easy to use, aesthetic, modern, and profitable. Our first priority is working with the client to add specificity and clarity to the original idea. Wireframes, screen mockups, variations of workflows, and usability improvements are generated by our experienced design team. Once the functional requirements and flow of the application are approved, we provide a time and cost estimate and an implementation plan; this ensures that costs are known upfront and risks areas are reduced before beginning development. Periodic releases are regularly delivered (every 2 weeks typically), enabling the client to validate progress and provide feedback. When all agreed-upon functionality is delivered, extensive Quality Assurance (QA) is performed, and the client performs User Acceptance Testing (UAT). After that, we assist in ensuring a successful launch!
A demo, however, is worth a million words - please contact us for a demo of our systems and our process – we’re sure you’ll find the results compelling.
