Home > How We Work


If we wanted to use a simile to represent DuckMa’s working process, we could compare it to a wine distillate that, after 10 long years – thanks to aging and refining in oak barrels – finally turns into a velvety Cognac, acquiring characteristic properties and aromas, maturity and the typical dark coloration.

Thus, our Method has found its true essence, going on to consolidate the decades of experience of a Company in constant search of an efficient and transparent working process towards the Client: a solution refined over time (a bit like Cognac) that is easy to understand but at the same time, structured and well-organized to leave nothing to chance at every stage of the realization process.

Starting with an interview in which the Digital Project is laid out, we guide you through the various stages of the process by applying the founding principles of the Method:

  • Certain time frame for publishing the App on Store (where required). The first version of the App is published on Google Play and App Store in 60 days.
  • Clear and transparent costs of each step of the process. The Method was created to prevent you from unpleasant extra-budget costs during development.
  • Project awareness thanks to your constant involvement. By following the steps of the Method you will be the protagonist of the success of your Application.

Our system of work is designed, tested and guaranteed to bring a successful application to Store quickly, producing an effective and accurate result, appreciated by customers and ensuring a rapid return on investment (ROI).

This is the first contact, the one in which you expose us your Project, your objectives and who will be the users of your App.

A 30-minute interview that will help you to clarify thanks to the support of an expert in Application development.

From this remote interview you get information on the feasibility of your Project and how we can make it happen.


You will be involved in a Workshop in which a dedicated team will analyze with you – from different points of view – your Project.

After 5 days we will plan an alignment meeting in which we will present the Plan Workbook resulting from what was developed during and after the Plan Workshop.


You will participate in a half-day Workshop with a dedicated team in which you will technically deepen the functionalities, criticalities and opportunities of your Project identified in the Plan phase.

Your project begins to take shape. This is the phase in which we will work in synergy to create the graphics of your Application and transform it into the navigable high-fidelity graphic prototype that you can use to validate your idea or to present it to Investors.

It will be a fruitful exchange of information between you and the UI / UX Design Expert to get to the exact result you had in your mind but that you still weren’t able to “put on paper” in detail.


You will be joined by the COO who, like an orchestra, will direct a Team of IT Engineers who will produce the source code of your Application. You will receive contractual guarantees on the timing of the block in development and constant updates.

We will release your Application only at the end of qualitative testing (QA) of the Application. If necessary, we will provide our support for the creation of the listing on the Stores (Google Play and AppStore) before publication.


CREATE, we realize the design of your App.

We give consistency to your idea of App by creating the design of your Application.

MAKE, let’s write the code of your App.

The development phase of the Application, backend, frontend and mobile kicks off.

Here’s what our Customers say about phase 02. Build:

“To my surprise they advised me to stop at the Create phase of my Project so that I had the opportunity to present the navigable prototype of my App to Investors before proceeding with the development of the source code. This allowed me to invest the necessary without getting enthusiastic by spending more than I should.”
