About Aculocity

Aculocity is a Gold Certified Microsoft Partner headquartered out of Highland Park in the Chicagoland area.

As an IT services company we employ over 60 professionals in 3 countries. Our specialties are in custom software development, providing business intelligence, enabling enterprise systems and creating automotive dealer services.

We seek out long term relationships with clients that range from startups to established businesses in manufacturing, advertising and strategic consulting. We are passionate about technology and solving business problems.

Custom Web Development

From responsive web design using HTML5 & CSS3 to mobile applications and web API's, we build dynamic & goal orientated websites with gusto. Our development group has a proven track record of delivering quality products to our clients who are happy to share their experiences working with us. Whether you are a small startup looking for a web presence or a large, multi billion dollar enterprise looking for business intelligence: we have seen it all.

We have chosen ASP.NET as our server side platform of choice, but we pay close attention to trends and emerging technologies when it comes to building the client side. Significant time and resources are devoted to keeping our developers ahead of the curve when it comes to design and implementation of rich web experiences.

Enterprise Development & Support

Commercial off the shelf software cannot always meet the needs of your business. Even when they do cover your most pressing concerns, they seldom are able to integrate with other software to the degree you need.

We have years of experience developing and integrating custom solutions that augment enterprise systems and leverage value from your existing enterprise software investment.

We will determine practical, cost effective solutions to your business problems that may include software development as well as process improvement.

Automotive Dealer Services

Aculocity has extensive experience developing data-driven marketing solutions for automotive dealers. We are proud that solutions we have developed have been part of national campaigns. We are able to deliver results under tight deadlines either independently or working with experts in your own team.

We have a very good grip on the automotive industry and have had a product developed by us showcased at NADA and Digitial dealer for the last 5 consecutive years.

Some of our systems include:

  • Dealership Lead Creation & Inventory Solutions
  • Vehicle Appriasal & Cost of Ownership Calculators
  • Rebate & Incentive Solutions

Our Development Approach

Our typical engagement process is described below and is flexible enough to be adapted to your specific needs.

1

Framing the Need: We begin by understanding your objectives using short workshops and interviews. Our findings are documented in a proposal that defines a high-level solution, estimated costs and suggested timeline.

Once you find the proposal acceptable we proceed to do more detailed requirements gathering in order to define a comprehensive solution. If you already have detailed requirements documented, then this effort is not needed.

In either case we use the information to issue a Statement of Work (SOW). Once the SOW is signed the project may begin.

2

Visualizing the Solution: We create sketch-like wireframes using Balsamiq that illustrates the functionality being proposed.

We then verify the User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) by providing detailed mockups created in Adobe Creative Suite products. These mockups incorporate your style guide and branding requirements.

A prototype interface will be developed to ensure the functionality is represented and the systems look as you expect it to before we begin development.

3

Developing the System: We use what was defined in the wireframes and mockups to develop your system. Any functionality not defined in the wireframes or mockups and outside the scope of the SOW will require a Change Request (CR).

4

Validating Quality: We test the system throughout the course of development and engage you at specific milestones to validate what we have completed.

5

Launching the System: We work with you to move your system to a dedicated server or cloud based hosting solution.

6

Supporting the System:We provide 45 days of free bug-fixes after system launch. Additional support is provided at the per hour rate.
