Technically “fearless” and highly knowledgeable.

No task is too large, too small, or too complex.

Developing web applications is our passion. Having delivered literally hundreds of web solutions across technical platforms and industries, we are prepared to help you in the quickest, most efficient way possible. Your solution will offer the proper infrastructure, architecture, technology stack, design, and other decisions. Hence, the process will be smooth and easy.

More and more, most of us are using mobile devices to access different services. Today having a mobile app is essential and increases the number of potential users/clients/subscribers. We will help you to develop best-in-class mobile solutions focused on an outstanding user experience.

WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world. In 2021, it was estimated that more than 455 million websites were using WordPress. It is free, it is open-source, offers plugins for just about everything, and has a lengthy list of additional benefits. We will help you realize simple and advanced WordPress projects, choose a theme, set up infrastructure, integrate your website with other services, and install or even develop custom plugins.

Application integration enables independently designed applications to work together. It is typically done with the use of APIs. We have great experience with different types of application integration for different purposes. We help our clients have control of different types of data and services in one place. Integrating your application with another may increase your capabilities exponentially and save significant effort for new development.

Volia offers dedicated teams of experienced, qualified software engineers to help you increase your capacity, improve performance, and save money. We have 20 years of experience staffing IT projects. We know what it takes and we will provide you with smart, highly motivated personnel from Ukraine and other Eastern European countries at a reasonable cost.

We analyze high-level business requirements and help determine stakeholder needs. We break the project into phases, define the minimum viable product (MVP) to prove the idea, and estimate required effort accurately. Our staff can help with prototyping to visualize stakeholder expectations and define the optimal infrastructure and architecture. This phase is essential for most projects to help investors make the right decisions early in the development life-cycle – saving material time and money later on.

Users no longer tolerate applications with poor user interfaces. They expect only the best user experience. If a goal is to ensure user engagement and retention, you must invest in proper UI/UX design. We are prepared to share our experience gained from two decades to create incredible, best-in-class applications for you.

It is critical to make the right decisions on software architecture before development commences. This fact is difficult to overestimate. Making wrong architecture choices early may result in problems that can’t be overcome without expensive re-coding of some or even all of the application in the future. Our experience will help to identify the most optimal architecture design and specify the necessary technologies, frameworks, software, and tools for your project.

While most companies try to make tests pass, Volia has a philosophy that successful tests find defects. Establishing continuous quality control is essential in order to find and correct bugs and avoid future issues like crashes. We use QA to minimize development time through proper manual testing and test automation. The only goal is to launch production ready products that delight users.

Volia offers high-quality reliable services to remotely support live applications, operating systems, and networks for our clients. Typical activities include issue identification and resolution, scheduled maintenance, setup, routine automation, and frequently manual work. We can deliver support services on either the customer’s hardware or on our own. We work with first-class datacenters where appropriate and will extend any savings we are able to garner on a client’s behalf.

Flexibility. Adaptability. Listening. Traits our clients expect.

Reliable. Dependable. Affordable.
Preventing problems instead of fighting them.

Highly responsive systems and completely dynamic solutions based on interpreted metadata are commonly considered to be contradictory requirements.


The system must be highly flexible, configurable from the core data structure to the business logic to the user interface – all driven by metadata and custom business rules. Will it take ages for the user to see a system response? Maybe. If the implementation team is an ordinary one.

In our case we engineered a Single Page Architecture GUI supported by an optimized data layer based on stored procedures. The middle tier implemented cached security, extension components, flexible external interfaces, and other services.

Our team developed a clear and tested architecture that, when reused, yields a complex, flexible, and configurable system that is highly responsive. Architecture framework reuse and an “all senior” development team allowed us to complete a project with “contradicting” requirements in a relatively short time frame.

Your brilliant analysts propose a most advanced design for the next release, but the dev team dashes the dream with unappetizing time and budget estimates.


A marketing organization wanted a sophisticated, rules driven Content Management System sending customized, polished, and personal letters to literally millions of end customers. The CMS had to support instant audience selection, a hierarchy of inherited document templates, smart data load from the business support system, and document content generation based on business rules and personal data of the end customer.

The system had to be very flexible and configurable, yet at the same time very responsive.

Deadlines were dictated by a large end customer who required this “next big thing.” To our client, the deadline sounded absolutely unrealistic. We were certain we could do it on time and on budget.

  • A productive team of all seniors is smaller in size than traditional team. This decreases communication overhead.
  • Such an experienced team does not require code reviews, close supervision, repetitive requirements explanation, and no rework for sub-optimal solutions.
  • A senior team produces an order of magnitude fewer bugs which drastically shortens the time between code complete and the production release.
  • An all senior team efficiently applies advanced architecture (which may be hard to understand for middle level developers) that decreases the amount of custom code.

The Volia team completed the highly risky and complex task on time and within budget.

Market leaders must protect their gold.


Our client is a leader in the technology industry. Its might is based on a huge database of digitized assets acquired over many years and at great investment. Innovative, thoughtful, and creative, the client needed to augment their teams to support the high pace new product development. Volia was selected as a software development partner to help address the challenge.

However, even when involving external partners the customer had to maintain a policy to protect the assets including highly valuable data, encryption methods, sophisticated security, and proprietary algorithms. A classical remote development approach simply was not going to work.

But where there is a will there is a way. We created a number of protected virtual machines – “developer boxes” configured inside the client’s network with limited, but sufficient access to the client’s environment. In addition, our team members travelled onsite frequently to provide services around the more protected technology components. As a result, our client managed to speed up the new product release times significantly and create a new competitive edge in the marketplace.

When clients ask us to do something, we want to understand the business drivers first. And if we have input toward a better solution, we make suggestions.


A longstanding Volia client sought off the shelf software to track assets in their pipe and joint logistics management business. Volia analyzed a variety of commercially available solutions. We even had our client meet with another customer to discuss a product with a similar architecture we implemented earlier. Ultimately, together, we determined a custom software solution would offer a better fit and a much lower overall cost of ownership. In this manner the client avoided annual maintenance costs, per seat license fees and complex agreements with a specialized software vendor. Additionally, the commercial options lacked required function and had usability problems. The custom solution provided the required functionality, offered usability tailored specifically to the experience and knowledge of field personnel. The solution offered mobile clients for field use supported by a web-based core and back office. In the end the client has a solution they like and own – all for a fraction of the cost of a package.

When vendor teams require specific expertise, adding a rarely used capability on full-time bases often comes at a prohibitive cost.


It is well known that software quality is often determined by the level of expertise in the team that created it. Activities such as architecture design, R&D to determine solutions to complex problems, performance optimization, and even test case development and testing of complicated technology may be better if delivered by the best people. But top expertise may not be required on a continual basis. If top performers are all assigned on a full-time basis, though they might be needed only occasionally, the support cost is simply too high. So Volia implemented a more cost-efficient configuration combining a core team with skills required full-time with hourly access to rare skills that raise the overall team quality. Such an approach affords clients capabilities as if all of the skills are available inside the team, only much cheaper. Through utilization of our “flexible resource” service Volia clients save on overall team costs and have quality solutions to the complex issues that may appear from time to time.

On a Friday night a client realized that the new “must have” feature will not be available the next Monday without loading production data into the DB.


Ideally, the solution and release would have been planned end to end with the software development vendor. In this case, Volia was not involved in the process. Yet we care deeply about our clients, their obligations to third parties, and are passionate about a project’s success.

Our team completed a complex project on time, as planned. The client’s client eagerly awaited solution delivery the following Monday. The important software was thoroughly tested, documented and deployed. The team went home for the weekend with a good feeling of accomplishment.

Then the client’s admins realized that their client used the previous version to fill in production data. For the new release the database structure required significant change. Writing and testing data transformation software would take significant time, especially when accounting for a very complex data structure. With no “Plan B” our client asked us if we could offer any solution to the problem.

Our PM talked to the team and we said yes. The team determined, if staffed around the clock, it could manually merge the databases in a single weekend. And they did it. Both the client, and the client of our client were delighted to receive exactly what they expected.

“This is not our problem.” We do everything we can to help clients achieve their goals.


Our client ordered new smartwatch technology from a manufacturer in Asia. Through our custom software, the watches were designed to communicate with mobile devices via a BlueTooth Low Energy protocol. The vendor failed to implement the protocol library well enough to support the required speed of data transfer, especially given the amount of data requiring transfer, between the smartwatch and the mobile device. The manufacturing vendor insisted there were no issues with the watch. They demonstrated a basic working prototype. But the prototype did not address real life scenarios and in fact proved ten times slower than what was required. Concurrently, our client already accepted a large shipment of watches, launched a large scale advertising campaign, and customer delivery commitments were in place. Indeed the issues were not in our software. But we are “in the trenches” with our customers and want to do everything in our power to ensure a successful market launch. To that end we:

  • Developed a testing framework to quickly identify concrete issues with every new version of the protocol libraries.
  • Organized a fast, repeatable process to test new versions of the protocol libraries.
  • Supported a transparent process enabling our client to monitor progress and push the hardware vendor to correct bugs and resolve performance issues as timely as possible.
  • Continually assessed our software in case accommodations were required.

To meet the deadline, team members put aside evenings, vacations, and weekends to support the recovery and help save the overall project from a very costly failure. In the end, all hardware issues were resolved and the marketplace is enjoying a fantastic new product.

In our view, the more senior developers (i.e., architect level), the better. Each vendor has their own ratio, and for Volia fully 40% of Volia software developers are of a senior level.


Every team at Volia has enough senior level software developers to formulate great solutions, successfully resolve issues of any complexity, solve urgent issues in the shortest time frame, and find efficient solutions to virtually any challenge. At the same time, a balanced team structure and cost advantages allow Volia to deliver our services very competitively.

Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) products are especially complex to optimize when system performance becomes unacceptable.


Once the production data of a top tier financial company was loaded into the system, response time significantly degraded. The web forms used most frequently started taking 30 seconds and longer to open or to submit the data.

Through analysis of the issue, we learned that many custom forms and fields were added to the system. Alone, this would not normally present an issue. However, combined with the fact the amount of production data was substantial, the customization caused performance to significantly degrade.

Improving response times was problematic as the system had a complex undocumented database structure, undocumented configuration, and was an ‘off the shelf product’ from a different company. Then it got even worse. With such a large amount of data some of the business functions completely stopped working.

Nevertheless, our “technically fearless” team accepted the challenge and committed themselves to optimizing the database layer in a manner that would not break the system. The goal was to improve the response time to an acceptable level while at the same time have all required business functions start working correctly regardless of the amount of production data.

It took several weeks battling the issue before ending in victory for the client and the Volia team. We not only rewrote some of the database access scripts and reconfigured database tables, but also improved several of the business logic libraries, replacing them with custom developed ones. The system response time improved from 30 seconds or more to more palatable 3-7 seconds for the most frequently used forms, and all the business functions worked flawlessly.

The true full cycle includes more steps than vendors usually offer


Vendors commonly refer to a complete cycle of product development to mean requirements gathering, analysis, specification, project planning, execution, deployment, knowledge transfer, and help with acceptance testing. Volia offers additionally several preliminary steps that precede the “usual” steps and a few more that follow. Additional preceding steps:

  • Participation in the refinement of the business idea.
  • The target market analysis.
  • Definition of scope for the first prototype to test the market and/or technical proof of concept for complex and new solution components.
  • Analysis of the required hosting infrastructure.

Additional following steps:

  • Beta testing with groups of people.
  • Configuration, monitoring, and support of the product in the production environment.
  • Maintenance of the product in all the environments from development, to testing, to staging, and production.
  • Transition to a new release of the system.

If the NDA is not enough, there are more advanced ways to assure IP protection


IP protection is a part of our culture, contracts, and engrained in our people from day one. We’ve never had the slightest issue since inception. But clients want to keep a competitive edge and do have concerns before engagement. They have a fast pace of product portfolio development, need help from software development vendors, require outside expertise and support, and still want to guarantee IP protection at the highest level. Often their market leading positions depend on specific algorithms, data, business logic, or even concepts implemented within their IT systems.

Volia has a lot of “real life” experience doing just that. First, we are a U.S. company so our customers know they have recourse. We’ve implemented physical security at times and distributed the development team on other occasions.

For the latter example, each developer, or small group of developers, deals only with certain system components that are isolated via remote interfaces or stubs instead of a real API. In this way, the IP of the entire system is separated into smaller pieces and no single person or group has access to, or at times even an understanding of, the entire solution. In this manner, using the separation method described above, even clients most cautious about IP feel safe.

What if you were asked to document and deploy a component that was half developed and all the configuration data was hardcoded?


Having earned a “fearless” title when it comes to issues of any technical complexity, Volia was asked to deploy a newly developed component that implemented the data exchange protocol between several complex systems into a staging environment. Additionally we were to develop deployment instructions for the client admins so they could deploy to production.

Volia had not previously been involved at all in this task. Our client lost confidence in the original component developer. They worried it may never be completed. After spending a good amount of time trying to deploy it by themselves, the client also gave up.

Instead of trying to repeat past unsuccessful efforts, our team did a source code review, analyzed requirements, and realized that the component was only partially developed. It did not contain fully half of the required features. Many of the configuration parameters were missing and the remainder was hard coded. There was no way to deploy, even to have it perform minimal functions in any environment other than the environment of the developer.

Following our review, Volia was granted the project to create a “real” integration component. We gathered the missing requirements (quite significant), developed it correctly, and deployed successfully, with deployment instructions for the client’s staging environment.
