Our discovery phase will allow us to gain a deep insight into your product in order to help you get the most out of it and understand any areas for improvements so it can meet the changing demands of the consumer.
Successful digital projects require a structured approach to ensure their effectiveness and meet the needs of our clients. That’s why we prioritise the discovery phase as an integral part of our project development programme.
The discovery phase is the initial stage of a digital project where we delve deep into understanding our clients’ goals, objectives, and requirements. It is a crucial step that sets the foundation for a successful project by ensuring clarity and alignment between our team and our clients.
During the discovery phase, our experienced team works closely with our clients to gain a comprehensive understanding of their organisation, target audience, and unique challenges. We conduct in-depth discussions, interviews, and workshops to gather insights, explore possibilities, and define project objectives.
One of the key objectives of the discovery phase is to identify and analyse the specific needs and pain points of our clients. By thoroughly understanding their requirements, we can tailor our solutions to address their challenges effectively. This phase allows us to align our vision with our clients’ goals and expectations, ensuring a smooth and successful project outcome.
In addition, the discovery phase helps us define the scope and deliverables of the project accurately. Through collaborative discussions, we establish project milestones, timelines, and resource requirements. This meticulous planning ensures that all parties involved have a clear understanding of the project’s scope, enabling us to provide accurate cost estimates and timelines.
Moreover, the discovery phase serves as an opportunity for our clients to gain insights into the latest industry trends, technologies, and best practices. Our team shares their expertise and provides recommendations on innovative solutions that can maximise the project’s potential and deliver exceptional results.
Throughout the discovery phase, we encourage open communication and collaboration between our team and our clients. We believe that a transparent and collaborative approach leads to better outcomes. We listen carefully to our clients’ ideas, concerns, and feedback, incorporating their input into the project plan to ensure their vision is realised.
By investing time and effort in the discovery phase, we lay a solid foundation for the rest of the project’s lifecycle. It allows us to minimise risks, avoid potential pitfalls, and optimise the overall project development process. Through thorough research, analysis, and collaboration, we ensure that our solutions are tailored to our clients’ unique needs, resulting in successful digital projects that exceed expectations.
If you’ve got through the hard part of creating up an idea or concept, and you want to take to the next stage but you’re not sure if it will stand the test of time, we are here to help you.
We can help do the research and background for your idea to focus on understanding how viable your idea is from a digital product perspective.
We’ll initially take a deeper look into the concept and its ins and outs, as well as what technology will be needed to to create the idea and turn it into a reality.
We will then have a look into the viability within orders of magnitude and whether it is commercially viable. This is then followed by looking into its market fit and whether there is a demand for the product through market and user research.
Finally we’ll come to a conclusion from an objective view into whether the product sounds like it will work.
Once we’ve gone through the digital viability of your idea, we can then help you take it into the next stage of understanding exactly the different ways you can create your product.
We will take a deeper dive into the technology and technical details needed to create your product.
We will start by looking into the different routes you could take to get to an end result of your product. This is done by doing more research into the specific details of your product and what the architecture and design would look like.
Our process will create various paths that you could take to move to your product and how it would look with the different options, as well as pros and cons for each one so you can make an informed decision.
Once you’ve gone through the hard part of thinking up a great idea, we can help you conceptualise it and start mapping out how the end product will look and feel.
We will help you by first looking into the journey needed to turn your idea into a product, mapping out a brief path to get from A to B.
This is then followed by conceptualising the look and feel of the product and understanding what the final screens of the product will look like. This will allow you to finally bring your idea to life and see the potential end product.
After you’ve understand what you want from your product, including the overall look and feel, and the different options you could take to get there, we can help you connect these together to create a prototype.
We will start by making the product journeys and screens and connecting them so we can make them real and create a proper prototype for you to see and touch.
You can then use this prototype to put in the hands of the user and get some real feedback on in order to make some tweaks or changes before you create the final product.
If you’ve got an existing product thats already out in the market but you want to find areas for improvements or any potential changes that could be made then we can help you with an audit.
We will look into your consumers and the market needs as well as all aspects of your product in order to help you improve.
We will first look into the design, the technology, and product strategy of your product in detail in order to see if there are any areas for improvements or aspects that could be changed to better suit the market.
This is then followed by understanding what impact the product is creating on the market and its consumers, as well as what value it is delivering back to you.
We will then make recommendations off the back of our research into what could be improved.
