Contract work on existing installer projects.
Whether you need another hand on a large project or assistance catching up on a project that has fallen behind schedule, Installer Factory can hit the ground running and contribute from day one.
Turnkey Installer development.
We can build an MSI installer from scratch to match the needs of any project, large or small, completely in house. No installer experience or dedicated engineer is needed on the client's project team. All aspects of installer design, implementation and deployment will be taken care of by Installer Factory.
Installer design consultation.
It is common for software product teams to think of the Windows Installer as a single development task that can be worked out at the end of a project. Improper installer design, however, has consequences that reach far beyond the original project and can haunt a software product for years by making patching and upgrades very difficult. Installer Factory has a decade of experience in installer design, patch creation, patch lifecycle management, upgrades (major and minor) and complex un-installation. Managing the complexity of the whole life cycle from day one can save a lot of heartbreak down the road.
Installer Team and Process Development.
Installer Factory can work with your existing software development team to integrate a healthy respect for installer design into the overall design process. Including the installer design and product life cycle (patching, upgrading, uninstalling) in the initial design philosophy can go a long way to eliminating some very complex problems down the road. How many times have features been dropped or have bugs been encountered during upgrade that could have been fixed in the initial release with a few simple tweaks? We can help you build a process that takes the whole product life cycle in to account right from the start.
