Russell Pool Industries Inc. (RPI) is a multi-faceted organization that specializes in the application of digital technology to solve business problems; providing our clients with immediate and significant results. RPI provides custom software development, embedded systems design, and technical consulting to an array of industries including, but not limited to Manufacturing, Distribution & Logistics, Oil & Gas, Equipment Rental/Maintenance, Healthcare, water/waste-water organizations, and Field Service industries for organizations of all sizes. RPI offers a wide array of expertise, delivering a full spectrum of technical consulting services to clients worldwide, upholding its reputation as a premier technology think tank. While possessing significant knowledge in various industries' subject matter, RPI's primary focus is software development.
RPI is comprised of engineers that pride themselves on creating business value. We are businessmen ourselves and understand the importance of saving time and money. The premise for all software development is solving business problems; a major downfall for many of our competitors within this industry is their misconception in regards to this premise. Many of our competitors consider their function to be programming, while the engineers at RPI concentrate their efforts towards adding value to your business. RPI was established due to a notable lack of custom software solutions produced by a company that can interpret and understand business needs/problems and create solutions that resolve or mitigate them. Our success can be wholly attributed to our devote dedication to designing custom software solutions around you and your organization's strategic and operational needs. Each unique software solution produced by RPI is built with the future in mind! Future modifications and expansions can be coded as you experience business growth or transformation; saving our clients both time and money when their software applications require altering or revamping.
The professionals at RPI offer multi-lingual skills enabling clients to communicate technically in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian directly to the engineers. The engineers at RPI have extensive experience in designing graphical user interfaces in these languages. The ability to communicate in these languages has led to an increase in our foreign clientele. The development of custom software solutions is not easy; however, RPI's professionalism, expertise, attention to detail, multi-lingual skills, and business mindset will ease this process. RPI's breadth of expertise in technologies and programming languages allows our engineers to analyze your business needs and requirements then properly select the appropriate development language. We don't tout that we know everything, but our broad capabilities allow for the proper tools to conquer any project. Technology is the medium in which RPI solves your business problems and we are most flexible in regards to the technology used for each solution. The engineers at RPI don't suggest a particular technology until all requirements are deeply considered.
RPI offers a most personalized approach to software development and technical consulting; holding steadfast honesty, diligence, accountability, and attention to detail throughout every step of the following development process. The explanation below will provide insight into how we work with our clients.
If necessary our professionals will sign a non-disclosure agreement before detailed project requirements are discussed. Our goal of initial contact is to gain a summary of your software requirements and set up an appropriate meeting either virtually or in person to fully discuss your requirements.
A lead development engineer will work closely with you to fully understand your software needs and project scope. Depending upon your project scope, this may be accomplished within one meeting or subsequent meetings may be required.
The engineer will then create a detailed proposal which includes a project summary, task summary, schedule, and financial analysis for the project. The majority of our projects are proposed as a fixed price (a flat fee for the entire project from inception to deployment). RPI provides the most reliable and cost-effective software solutions possible, the budget for each project will be detailed in the financial analysis.
Once completed the engineer will present the proposal and upon your acceptance, the proposal will be signed and the application design process can begin!
A deposit or retainer (usually 5% - 10% of the total project cost) is required to begin our work. Throughout this process the engineering team will have frequent meetings with you to solidify the definition and constraints of your project, and provide status updates. These meetings will be most important in regards to perfecting the application design. The team will develop a series of non-operational prototypes or wireframes (images) to present the application design in a format that is easily understood. You and your team will review these documents and make suggestions to improve the design to better fit your needs or use. RPI’s effective management of the requirements process allows for the development of projects 151% faster than other organizations and reduces the development cost by 65%! This effective management of the requirements process yields the highest quality software possible.
After your approval of the prototype the code development will begin. During this development RPI's engineering team will frequently update you on the overall status of the development.
Upon completion of the application, the software will be installed on your system and RPI's engineer will demonstrate the software's proper functionality. RPI engineers will also assist you in any initial data entry and provide adequate training in the operation of the software for all employees. RPI will closely monitor the application during initial operation in your company to ensure employee understanding. At this point the remainder of the agreed amount must be paid, according to the agreement schedule.
RPI provides 1 year of unlimited support included in the proposed price. For subsequent years RPI scraps all formal maintenance set ups and procedures; 1 fee, call anytime and we will be on the next flight out if our presence is required!
