Technical & Professional Services
Custom Business Software
RightBrain Networks uses an agile software development process that is very tightly focused on understanding our clients' businesses needs before the first byte of code is written. Some of the things that make us different include: dedicated project management, a 100% US-based engineering team, and formalized QA processes to greatly reduce bugs. Much of the software we create is crucial to the business operations of our clients, such as: custom databases, point-of-sale software, data mining/reporting, and similar applications. Depending on the needs of the client, we function as a consulting software engineering firm assisting a client-managed in-house/offshore development team, or we provide a turnkey solution by building and supporting the application we design.
Web & Mobile Applications
Our staff has been crafting e-commerce websites since 1996 and we've learned a lot along the way. Using first-hand experience, we help clients maximize sales revenue by developing SEO-friendly online stores. Depending on the needs and scale of the project, we are able to create a completely custom solution or build upon the e-commerce platform powered by our partner, BigCommerce.
As an early adopter of Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) in 2006, we have extensive experience using the platform to design highly-scalable and durable applications. We cut through the hype and can advise on whether a particular project is more suited for the cloud or traditional IT infrastructure. We are also the founder and host of AWS Michigan, a Amazon Web Services user group for the region and are routinely retained by other software development firms to consult on cloud-based deployments.
RightBrain designed and manages our own private network in a local SAS 70-certified datacenter. We provide both shared hosting accounts using CPanel and more advanced co-location services. Paired with our development services, our end-to-end solution eliminates the inevitable "finger pointing" associated with building and hosting an application with two, separate vendors. Our datacenter services are also often provided in tandem with our cloud-based applications to provide a cost-effictive, redundant backup.
As a compliment to our e-commerce services, RightBrain is a merchant account ISO agent. We assist businesses (both online and offline) in accepting credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks. For established businesses, we can analyze monthly statements and help reduce existing merchant service fees. We have extensive experience working with payment gateways (such as Authorize.Net) to make intergrating credit card payments into existing systems effortless.
Strict deadlines, exacting standards, and constantly changing requirements—yeah, we understand agency work.
We don't do branding or know much about marketing. Advertising is a bit of a mystery too. But helping these professionals is something we've gotten down to a science. We regularly lend our expertise to small and mid-sized creative agencies who need a reliabile partner in helping deliver on techicial projects. We've consulted on e-commerce websites, build database backends, assisted with text message marketing campaigns, and more.
100% of our services are performed in-house by full-time, college-educated staff. We don't outsource and are available during business hours when you need to reach us. Each project is assigned a dedicated project manager to ensure that your agency always has a single point-of-contact with us. Learn more about our team.
We care because we know it's your reputation on the line. Please let us know how we can help.
