reSULTS OF PRODUCT DISCOVERY
You’ll want to know exactly what this process gives you. Well, here’s the answer.
Ideal customer persona
A fully fleshed-out personality or business with needs and pain points that will give you a better understanding of how to mold your app to their requirements.
We’ll remove all doubts in your mind on which features should be included in the app or not. You’ll have a focused list of core features that seek to fill gaps in the market for your ideal users.
App flow and wireframes
An app flow of features shows how they connect with each other into a coherent whole. Alongside wireframes, you’ll have a clear picture of your users’ journey.
We’ll start you off with first looks into the visual identity of your app with 3-4 mockups that we’ll iterate based on your feedback.
The tech stack for every project can be different. After a thorough examination, we’ll prescribe you the right one.
Project delivery plan
You’ll receive a plan for the development of your app from start to finish. That way your team will work in a more organized environment.
