Health care and Education
Our clients in healthcare demand a high level of professionalism and expertise. Over the last years we have built an extensive healthcare body of knowledge and developed high load web applications which use healthcare records.
In education, Next Drive is the development partner of an e-learning company. This supplier has a mission to improve the quality of primary education by making a tablet-based teaching solution. We are proud to be the development partner.
Collective Application Development
Effective teamwork is key in accomplishing shared goals. Therefore, it’s important to establish a seamless connection between the development process and the clients’ business process.
Our developers and your business professionals work closely together in a project development team. Team members share ideas, information and responsibilities; our (dedicated) experts are responsible for technical input. Note that our work method goes far beyond outsourcing (subcontracting). Instead, we offer clients a dedicated team of software developers: reliable partners in software development who support your business strategy.
Our method yields results with a high impact. Count on us for superior software quality, delivered by our highly qualified engineers. Our contribution is to deliver software that is robust, scalable and maintainable. Once we’ve written the code, we continuously monitor the quality of the software.
Our method, step by step
A virtual development room is set up where your IT-professionals and our experts work closely together. Next Drive propagates an agile development process for distributed development. Our experience is that the Scrum-method will lead to an improved productivity and quality. An essential element is the continuous improvement of the development process through periodic evaluations.
A dedicated development team is formed. The team can be upsized or downsized, depending on your specific needs. In an environment of rich communication and shared responsibility, our people will work closely together with yours. There will be direct communication at all times. While on different locations, the members of the development team will share the same goals, do the same work and depend on one another for success. The development team will take full responsibility and shared ownership to achieve committed results.
Our method, Collective Application Development, has the following benefits:
Why it works
Our development process enables rapid learning and improvement through short iteration cycles. We’re 100 dedicated to the development team effort. With all team members equally committed, Collective Application Development guarantees a speedy and flexible process.
Why Next Drive
We understand that the market will not wait for you, that investors will keep your business under pressure and/or that your clients will not accept low performing applications. We’re committed to work and perform under high pressure. At Next Drive we work with the best people with excellent technical skills. Software developing is complex but we’re up to the challenge.
Building software, redesigning applications: our people are experienced and have the right problem solving skills. Count on us to come up with solutions. Communication is vital in the development process: we like to communicate in a straightforward, honest and clear manner. As a client, you know what to expect. We keep our promises.
Our team: outstanding people
Our developers have outstanding technical skills and experience. They all hold university degrees and are highly qualified for the job. All of our staff have on average over five years of development experience. Following the values of our organization, they are result oriented and driven to excel. All developers speak English fluently.
Superior (product) quality
We find a software solution for your specific needs. Testing is an integral part of the development work. But not all issues will be found by testing software. The quality of the code produced by the development team must be continuously monitored. It is essential that the product becomes as robust as the business, and that data will grow. The time-to-market is important, but the time-in-market is equally important. High quality is the secret ingredient for faster delivery. We do our best to prevent instability for our clients; by continuously monitoring the software on key indicators, we avert a large number of recurring bugs and performance issues.
The highest productivity
In keeping with the lean manufacturing philosophy of maximizing the output, the team needs to build the most valuable functionality first. Requirements have to be fulfilled before the start. After each iteration, the development team evaluates and determines possible improvements. Dispensable elements will be removed in communication, process and technology.
Efficient working method: client teams
Each client has his own development team, allowing team members to focus on the development for one particular client. Team members work in an environment of rich communication and shared responsibilities. Because planning starts with understanding the long-term vision and short-term goals of the client, the team is able to make informed decisions in their daily work.
In client teams, team members communicate in English. Specific, frequently used technical words will be learned quickly. Communication equipment enables local team members to stay in close contact with those abroad; the virtual development room is created so that communication within the team is no problem at all.

For whom we develop
For over five years, we have been responsible for the software development for Dotweb (www.dotweb.com). Dotweb is a Dutch software company that offers companies an application that enables them to track the health and absence information of their employees. We support Dotweb with the creation of new modules, enabling Dotwebs clients to improve Human Resources efficiency and save on their employers’ costs.
The extensive user growth caused the web application to hit its limits, requiring a redesign and refactoring of their healthcare web application. We executed the development (in partnership with a supplier of an information system for general practitioners Promedico ASP), achieving our goals to improve the scalability, performance and maintainability. We changed the underlying technologies and frameworks while we kept the application available for the users. The developers from our center are now part of the development team.
Next Drive is also the development partner for e-health startup PulseMe. The mission of this company is to facilitate and enhance the contact between caregivers and patients. To realize this idea we have developed a video consult system, which is available as a web application as well as a version for android and iOS mobile devices (www.PulseMe.nl).
In education, Next Drive is the development partner of Snappet since the startup. This company has a mission to improve the quality of primary education by making a tablet-based teaching solution. The tablet serves as an interactive (smart) replacement of existing books. We have built high load web applications with the latest (mobile) technologies. In the Netherlands there is a fast rollout of the application and the rollout in other European countries has started. Read more about the success of Snappet on their website (www.snappet.org).
Next Drive has locations in the Netherlands and the Russian Federation. Our team consists of around 20 development professionals, including developers, software architects, software engineers, and project managers. We work for organizations whose core business is software development, as well as organizations that need software or applications to transform their ambitions into tangible results.
