Here are just a few of the areas of expertise we bring to any company looking for custom retail software development:

Mobile App Development

Dev IQ has deep experience creating beautiful, compelling mobile apps that drive revenue and deliver exceptional customer experiences. We use Design Thinking to understand our clients’ unique business needs and customer personas. From there, we leverage a framework model to deliver deep customization while accelerating development through reusable development building blocks. Our engineers are experts at creating user-friendly, high-impact apps through Swift, Java, and Kotlin.

As a result of our process and expertise, retail clients are able to get to market quickly with apps that look great regardless of screen size, provide exceptional user experiences, and in turn, fundamentally change the way they interact with their customers.


Payment Integration and PCI-Compliance

Today, digital cashless options are moving into the mainstream, and retailers who can’t accept online payments risk falling behind. Dev IQ helps retailers seamlessly integrate payment gateway technologies into their online and mobile storefronts, helping them offer their customers easier, more secure ways to purchase products.

COSU and Smart Panels

Dev IQ develops corporate-owned, single-use (COSU) solutions, empowering retailers to offer their customers more digital options in a way that’s manageable and cost-effective.

Using inexpensive, pre-built hardware, our engineers build custom solutions on top of existing OS –improving the speed-to-market of new digital retail tools without a significant drain on IT resources.  


Design Thinking and Empathic UX/UI Focus

As with all our projects, to build custom digital manufacturing solutions, we begin with design thinking. This process encourages a deep understanding of the needs of all relevant stakeholders (including the customer), so the end product is built to address real usability requirements and organizational needs. Armed with this understanding, our team leverages empathic design to develop intuitive, holistic end-to-end solutions that improve business processes, sales revenue and customer experiences.

Continuous Delivery

Dev IQ engineers leverage a proprietary Continuous Delivery Pipeline to frequently and automatically push new features with no downtime and no negative impact to the user experience or underlying operational processes. This “always on” software development methodology supports retail’s customer-centric demands, ensuring that consumers always experience exceptional service.

“Dev IQ is incredibly customer focused. They consistently go beyond what we’ve asked for to fully immerse themselves in our environment and deeply understand our needs. Their network has also benefited us tremendously. Dev IQ has been a true partner in understanding and helping shape our vision for stronger customer engagement, and making that vision become a reality.” Randi A.
