When it comes to software development, remaining agile and collaborative within and across teams can be difficult. Whether your team suffers from unclear communication, getting stuck in feedback loops or simply lacking the right tools for the job, all of these things can slow the feature shipping process and make it incredibly disjointed and inefficient. Luckily, Voyage is helping dev and tech-adjacent teams achieve true collaboration to save time and ship features faster.
Here’s how it works: Voyage creates an on-demand, short-lived environment of a software developer’s entire web application. This part is key: while other services work similarly, most of them only solve a small part of the problem because they only deploy the front-end and don’t connect it to the back-end. With very few updates only affecting the front-end, these services just aren’t cutting it.
After the entire application is deployed and it’s time to review, developers can easily and securely share the environment with teams and stakeholders via a unique, secure URL. The environment comes with built-in feedback tools that promote collaboration and remove the headache of spreadsheets and email chains that tend to hold teams back.
What does Voyage mean for teams? First of all, they found that the platform saves dev teams an average of three to five hours per week, per developer. Their customers are shipping features faster than before thanks to increased visibility and decreased feedback loops. Tech-adjacent leadership and management also has the added benefit of getting involved sooner and gaining greater visibility into the development process, not to mention avoiding unnecessary meetings and endless email chains.
Voyage has tons of great features that make software development a team sport, allowing developers to ship features faster:
On-demand staging environments | With just a few lines of code, your feature branch is deployed to an isolated environment and can be easily shared with teammates and stakeholders. Simply send the safe and unique URL to your team and keep coding.
Gain visibility into the development process | Opaque development cycles are a thing of the past. With Voyage, there is no need to wait until the development team is nearing a release cycle. You can get access to the updated features as they are being developed.
Built-in feedback tools | Stop using spreadsheets and email chains to report issues to your team. Voyage’s built-in feedback tools allow you to quickly isolate issues within the feature set. Even add screenshots and comments that integrate directly with your repository provider.
Works alongside your current process | Voyage makes tools that are helpful, not restrictive, so they ensure that the platform will not interfere with your current CI/CD pipeline or existing deployment process.
Secure platform & password protected deployments | Your code is never compromised and can not be accessed by Voyage’s team or any other. We also provide the ability to password protect each of your deployments.
