Planning Matters

Software Product Discovery Services

Excellent product begins with excellent planning. We think before we code to make sure you build the right thing from the start and avoid cost overrun and project failure.

Over 50% of software projects run over budget

But yours doesn't have to.

Stay within budget & build the right thing

And can help you rescue your project until it’s too late

Key components of our product discovery phase

Duration: from 2 weeks to 2 months.
Back up your idea with proper research on the people you're targeting, the competition out there, and the problem you're trying to solve. Select the application architecture and technologies that best fit the product's requirements. Get a product development roadmap with cost estimates and timelines. We've got it all covered.
User Research
Through meticulously crafted customer development sessions, Jobs-to-be-Done (JTBD) analysis, and customer journey mapping, we delve into the heart of your audience's needs. We normally conduct 30 comprehensive interviews to get insights from the actual users your product is meant to serve.
Identify user research goals
Define user personas
Choose a recruitment strategy

Extract and arrange user insights
Market Analysis
By applying various strategic tools, such as SWOT analysis, Business Model Canvas, and Value Proposition Canvas, we explore the essence and viability of your product. Our approach goes beyond the surface – we analyze market trends, such as the integration of AI, to identify points of growth and untapped opportunities.

Prototyping & Validation
We take what we've learned from talking to users and studying the market, and use that to create a prototype of your future product. We'll test the prototype with your potential users, continuously improving it based on their feedback. Then, we'll send it over to you, with full confidence that it's precisely what your customers will love.
Define the core features
Create wireframes to visualize the product
Turn wireframes into a clickable prototype
Set key validation criteria and metrics
Conduct testing with a representative user group
Make iterative improvements to the prototype
Technology & Architecture
We pick the technology that matches the product's functional and non-functional requirements and is ideal for the product's purpose. At this stage, we also perform a technology risk assessment and set security standards that may include following Privacy Shield, CCPA, or GDPR rules, implementing data protection 'by design and by default' measures, and sticking to tech guidelines from OWASP.
Document functional and non-functional requirements
Select appropriate technology
Design the overall product architecture
Assess technology risks
Define data storage solutions and strategies
Address specific requirements for particular industries
Define testing methods and tools
Create a technical specification
Product Development Roadmap
Lastly, we wrap up our discovery process by creating a roadmap for product development. This roadmap acts as a clear action plan, laying out key milestones and what will be delivered, along with estimated timelines. This provides you with a clear picture of when different parts of functionality will be completed, giving you everything you need to kickstart your product realization.
Identify major milestones in the product's development
List the core functionalities to be developed
Specify the estimated start and end dates for each milestone
Estimate the budget required for each phase
Provide a glimpse of the product's long-term vision and potential future directions
